Don't cook brakefast

Aug 18, 2016 8:22 PM

When I don't feel like I don't make the best nutritional choices .. So, I eliminated choices out of the equation by preparing a week's worth of healthy breakfast

You can find all of the materials at the dollar store and at Aldi. Aldi has organic fruit alternatives and you can buy gluten free oats as well. They are healthy, yummy and simple. They keep for a while and keep you full for quite a while (Google how to overnight oats for more versions of the prep) ⭐

Heres how:
1/3 cup of oats (rolled and steel cut mixed w flax seed)
Spoon of yogurt
Small spoon of chia seeds
Almond milk (or whatever milk)
Spoon of honey (or maple syrup, fruit jelly)
Almonds (or healthy plain nuts like cashews)
Cut up fruits (bananas, blueberry, apple, strawberry, grapes, cherries, raspberries)

It's normalized my fathers (now working on my moms (=^.^=)) high blood pressure.

Please try and let me know what you added!

I'm eating my new favorite breakfast right now. About half a cup of frozen berries with a few fresh peach slices on top. It usually takes me about an hour to eat it. I just pick at it while I get ready. But berries are a 'super food' so I'm banking some good nutrients!

When I'm feeling good I like to have home made granola with almond milk and fruit. It sticks with me until lunchtime and is crazy yummy. We make our own, so it's low in fat and high in yum. My favorite is cinnamon and pumpkin seed with flax. The flax does a fantastic job of keeping things regular. Not to be indelicate, but narcotics do cause constipation.

Wow is not being able to eat breakfast really this common?
It started in grade 7 for me where if I ate too early I'd vomit, which got me threatened with being sent to the hospital so I stopped telling anyone and just ate my breakfast like a good little girl and vomited on the way to the bus then had the smallest snack at school.
Now I make smoothies for breakfast with protein powder in it just before I leave for work and I usually don't touch it for the first hour I'm at work and then it takes me two more hours to drink it and it's not that big since I use the magic bullet and those cups are small.
I also find that if im not rested enough I dry heave a lot in the morning. So if im working evening i just lay in bed for a few hours because laying down and resting seems to help, it doesn't have to be sleep.

GemStoneStrong I love your idea, I just wish I had the energy to pre make my meals, and like you I made bad food choices! I choose quick easy food mostly not even meals just nit picking, then when I'm out and I haven't eaten all day because I'm too tired I'll eat chocolate :(. I'd love a personal chef 😫😫😫.

Fatiguedfighter, you are amazing! I, too, use flax for regularity. I use the the seed. Do you in your granola? Is it a secret family treasure or would you share recipe? I am really trying to make changes and breakfast is real hard for me to get down. I am looking at different foods. Thanks for your post.

Thanks for sharing GemStoneStrong. I prefer breakfast and dinner, and oatmeal is one of my faves. I'll have to try this recipe when I can swallow better.

Silvery, I'll post it on a new thread! For some reason my tablet keeps pushing this text box down and it's making me crazy!
