Best Breakfast

Post by Just Move on Wed Mar 13, 2013 11:16 pm

I have had a hard time finding a better breakfast then a green smoothie. I will share with you a recipe that I like to use, its fast and easy to make, not to delicious. Feel free to post your green smoothie recipes or something else if you think it can compete against a green smoothie, health wise. :hifive:



1 Apple (organic fuji)
1 banana
1 cup organic almond milk (or your preference of juice)
fill the rest of the blender with organic baby spinach

simply blend all ingredients together until smooth :hatsoff:

also I just made a smoothie for tomorrow morning and added some flax seed to add some more nutrition,
so flax seed optional

I see there is alot of egg people here, when wake up later and I have more time to make breakfast sometimes I have:
3 soft boiled or poached, free-range organic eggs
1 banana
1 apple or pear
1 orange (or 2 clementines, I love them)
some berries
1 glass of grass fed milk or yogurt

You guys should consider adding some more fruit and/or vegetables to your breakfast to increase your nutrient intake.

Solid breakfast JMove! Consider yourself fortunate that you can find/afford to eat clean like that. Good advice too, although I usually eat my veggies for lunch and dinner. Just eggs makes cooking breakfast a little quicker.

Same here, I usually eat veggies with lunch and dinner and 2-3 servings of fruit between breakfast, lunch, dinner or post -workout.

Pretty delicious sounding, but I think it mixes too many different food types that require different enzymes to properly digest.

I've read a bit of stuff about food combining for maximum health and find some of their arguments to be interesting and compelling. For example, they say that protein digests with acidic enzymes and carbs digest with alkaline enzymes. If that is so, then you really don't want to eat large amounts of the two together, though admittedly I still eat potatoes and eggs together.

Today-
1/2 cup pineapple
1 cup kefir
--------------
2 cups coffee
--------------
1 cinnamon roll
3 eggs
1 cup wild hog sausage (mixed in the eggs)
1 cup almond milk
--------------
Pineapple and kefir before workout
Coffee while working out
The rest for actual breakfast.
This is how my day usually starts

Absolutely. I usually have to spend about an hour and change on the bus between home and the college. Alot of the time I just do up doing some hard-boiled eggs while I'm getting ready or working out so that I can grab them and go.

I often have some V8 with breakfast too. I find it delicious, and it's a half-decent source of veg. I don't eat alot of processed foods lately, so I'm not really worried about the sodium content in it either.

If I have a little more time, I'll throw a bunch of onions, peppers, garlic, mushrooms, and olives (if I have 'em) in a pan with some butter, and once they've cooked a couple minutes, I'll scramble three eggs or so in with it. :eat2:

I'm surprised, I would have thought you'd eat a lot more than that, considering you outweigh me by a good 30 pounds. But I guess you're trying to lean out (right?) whereas I'm still trying to bulk a bit.

I wouldn't add tuna. I would add more eggs. The more types of food you eat at once, the harder your body has to work to digest and the more likely it is you fail to absorb some of the nutrition.

Tuna and eggs sounds pretty nasty.

I add cheese or vegetables or bacon/ham/sausage to eggs... or all three. The preferred vegetable is spinach or onion, maybe peppers.

The "eggs and tuna"-solution was an improvised breakfast at first. I ran out of bacon and added tuna instead.

Result: A nice omelette that tasted surprisingly good.

(Vegetables AND bacon is the best breakfast :mrgreen: )

Just eggs, 3-4 work well for me with a bit of chillie sauce.

I would have thought that different protein sources, would take varying amounts of time to break down and be absorbed throughout the day.

That was the idea, except that the exact constitution of one might hinder optimal absorption of the other. And after all, it only takes so much time to go through the system, which means you might be leaving something on the table, so to speak.

It was the "food combining" that first turned me onto this idea. They make a lot of sense in a lot of other ways, so I think they're probably onto something.

But as I said I haven't located the exact article I read.

I've taken to eating a couple eggs, 1 tablespoon olive oil and oats to thicken the mix. Then I throw it in the microwave for 2 minutes and I'm done.

It's a lazy breakfast, but I get far less crankiness and lack of focus for most of the morning. I may have to up that to 3 or 4 eggs though.

Re: Best Breakfast

Post by Josh T. on Fri Jul 26, 2013 4:09 pm

Dave, I wouldn't put much stock into the whole acid/alkaline theory.

That's really a misrepresentation of how the gut digests stuff.

No matter what you eat, you're going to get a VERY acidic, mechanical digestion process in the stomach (pH from 1.5-3.0 normally). Protein digestion will start there and acidity will be partially regulated by the amount of protein eaten. There's also a little fat digestion that starts in the stomach (around 15% of all fat digestion occurs here from lingual and gastric lipases).

After a thorough bashing, food is released into the small intestine a little at a time, where a whole bunch of HCO3- is released to make the environment more alkaline (again, REGARDLESS of whether its carb/protein heavy or both heavy or whatnot). There, you'll get a crapton of pancreatic enzymes that do their job (chemical digestion) digesting proteins, fats (bile salts), and carbs.

That's not to say that one SHOULDN'T take enzymes, especially if your digestion sucks or you don't produce enough HCl or if you're eating a big meal, but the whole acidic/alkaline thing is a load of bull imo.

Slightly off topic, but not really, this dude posted some stuff about it and he's way smarter than me: https://chriskresser.com/the-ph-myth-part-1

Well fats are good for you and what not. But the point of a snack is to delay hunger. So my opinion. Protein and carby snack = most efficient. If your under a controlled diet then ofcourse snack what you want. But if your not specifically dieting and don't know your nutriants then I would recommend to stay away from high fat snacks.
