Now that I am off my food expert rant - I can get to the good stuff - what I ate for breakfast.
This week I made a goal to break out of my food ruts and routines and try to eat a wider variety of foods for breakfast.
This morning I reheated black forbidden rice and veggies - in this case onions and carrots that had been braised in broth - left-over from dinner.
I really like having dinner left-overs for breakfast because it makes for such an effortless food prep in the morning. Why not make a little extra at dinner to save time in the morning? And why do you suppose left-overs taste so good - often better - then when the dish was freshly made?
The other thing that I noticed is that several diet experts have told me that if I eat a high protein breakfast with plenty of fat that I will be able to sustain my energy for up to 5 hours - in spite of my tendency to get low blood sugar - without a hitch.
Well - this is anecdotal and totally n=1 but I ate a fairly low protein - low fat breakfast this morning and felt great and actually went 6 hours before my next meal. Yes my tummy started rumbling at around hour 5 - but I did not get any of the head fog symptoms that are associated with low blood sugar.
So it appears that I can be a bit more food adventuresome in the morning - not lock-stepped into a high protein and high fat regime every morning - without worrying too much about sustaining my blood sugars.
Hooray! I feel so free!
