Do you have BREAKFAST Confusion? My friends, please try to think outside of the box….because I have learned that eating the traditional way of American breakfasts is one of the main reasons WHY we are diabetic in this (ironically) rich Country of ours!! ! I can’t tell you how many people have asked me throughout the years what I recommend for breakfast. There is NO possible way could I possibly eat sugared breakfasts like waffles, pancakes, or even cereal. Eating this old fashioned way will not bring you longevity. Here is what I eat about three times a week…..and the answer may shock you….
I eat Salads for breakfast. Yes, I do.
I eat a big green salad sometimes with some protein in the salad. I call them my POWER BREAKFASTS. Here’s a great salad that I love to eat ALL ORGANIC….in the Fall/Winter mornings:
1 cup Organic Pecans
1 cup Spinach
1 large Avocado
1 cup shredded Green Cabbage
1/2 cup Cranberries or Raisins
1 cup Quinoa (red or black is my favorite)
1 cup Broccoli
1/3 cup Sunflower Seeds
1 or 2 LIMES (juiced)
Mix it all together and enjoy! During the Spring/Summertime I usually eat salads three times a week in the mornings and then use the rest of the week to drink green smoothies.When it becomes hotter in the spring/summertime remove so many of the nuts and replace with summertime veggies such as cucumber, celery, jicima, with also adding more spring lettuces.
