Excellent Blog today, Thanks so much ;-) I am going to Try this recipe when I get home. Still NO SNOW in VERMONT... Thanks... This will really up my breakfast Proteins. Eating out on vacation has not been all that good for me this past week.

Getting over a sinus infection that started at the end of January and nothing tastes good and I find I am not hungry so I just do not eat. (I know Bad girl I'm weak to boot) I can't wait to get back home to my regular Boring (food) routine. I find I also eat many of the same foods and more of them when I am home. I find I am calmer at home and I get tighter the more stressed I am. I hate having to make choices. I love breakfast but I cannot eat until about 10 am and must go slow very slow. Lunch is and about Noon and dinner no later than 7 pm Timing seems to be very important in digestion for me.
Do you have any info on foods and how they digest?
Just thought I'd ask..... I have No picture but you know who I am Love imaluckydog

WHEW!! I've spent the past 4 or 5 days reading ALL your blogs!! :-) Thanks for all your info & sharing!

Jennifer said...

This is great info! I'm going to try your recipe. Thank you!

Great blog, BG! As always, super informative but not dry and boring. You have such a talent!

I agree that breakfast can jump start the metabolism for the day and without it, one can end up in catch up mode all day long which can lead to disasters. I was trying to say that in my previous blog on breakfast but didn't know how to articulate that quite so well. So thank you for being you, again. :)

I will say, though, that for those who just cannot eat breakfast, and I'm one of 'em, it does not lead to a catch up mode, but in fact, if I push it and make myself eat a meal (and oatmeal is one of the worst for me, if you can imagine that), then I feel sick all day and then end up eating nothing else - which then makes my metabolism plunge. The thing I've discovered that works for me and my situation is the smoothie. Breakfast, and all meals, are, I think, very specific to the individual. Sometimes it's just a matter of playing around with what works best for your own body.

Just my 0.02...

I like your motto about testing food!!!

Rebekah said...

Yeay!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I have been dying to see what you eat. I am going to print off your testing food motto and start using that. I always thought of 'testing my band' in a negative stretching kind-of way. This is perfect. You've motivated me to start eating breakfast again.THANKS--can't wait to see lunch!

WTG BG! You actually inspired me to start having breakfast. I usually don't. My band is very, very tight in the mornings. However, I keep instant grits and cream of wheat on hand for fill days. So today I made grits with a little bit of maple syrup. Thanx for the idea and for letting me copy you. :)

diane said...

I never thought of adding protein to my grits...I had just kind of stopped eating them because of the low protein...tried it this morning and its a winner! Thanks!

Gen said...

Thanks BG! I am a huge oatmeal fan. My fave is steel cut oats, but I don't always have time to cook it, so I nuke the Weight Control kind. I always add berries of some sort and usually a few walnuts or almonds. I did not think of SF syrup, that is a great idea!

Your motto is totally the key to success with the band - its not how much you can eat, its how LITTLE you can eat and still be satisfied.

Yum, I think I will have oatmeal for lunch!

Jenny said...

Looks good! thanks for sharing!

My husband (then boyfriend) gave me that exact same coffee maker for our first Christmas together! We loved it so much that we recently splurged for the upgraded newer model. Totally worth it.

Freshly ground beans really is the only way to go.

Kristin said...

Love the ideas here, thanks so much for posting!

As much as I love oatmeal, it's a no-no for my doc's strict 30g of carbs a day.

I started making baked eggs in muffin pans with bacon, spam, cheese, veggies or whatever. One little egg "muffin" is more than a meal for me in the morning.

I posted the recipe on my FatFrogDiary blog. Hey, BG!! My doc asked me to come to the support group and help uplift them with my recipes and success! Woohoo!

Grizzlyrider said...

Hey BG, your next blog "Band Meal" I think it is, is not coming up, in fact, I get a message that "The Sweet Spot" blog doesn't exist. Thought you might want to check it out.

Girl Bandit said...

Thanks for that...great info. I can eat breakfast and if not then I have a protein shake. I seem to be more restricted at night which I know is weird. Can't wait for the next food installment

Kristin said...

I had this for breakfast. Delicious! Thanks again.

Kathi said...

I got redirected too from your last post...someone been naughty? Hehehee. I love the polish pottery bowls in the pics and I've been avoiding breakfast cause I'm tight, but I totally see the catch up mode in my evenings when I can eat 'easier'. Gonna see what I can manage in the mornings, I've always been a huge proponent of b'fast!

Trixie said...

I love your little oatmeal cannister!!! So very cute!

I have steel cut oats a couple of mornings a week, they are one of my favorite cold weather breakfasts. Sometimes I dice up a half of an apple or throw in a few blueberries or nuts.

This breakfast (without nuts) is 13 grams of protien, so on days when I do oatmeal, I plan on a lowfat cheese stick mid morning snack. Your idea of adding soy powder to get a higher protein content sounds great.

Thanks,

Trixie

Oooops...sorry, it's my TI (tech-impairment) again...I pushed 'publish' when I wanted to push 'save' as I wasn't through typing.

Lena- Totally AWESOME!!! You're going to be such an inspiration to the newbies!!!

Bonnie said...

Thanks for all the great ideas. I've made a note of this post in the running list I'm keeping for when I finally get banded.
