I've been placed on a no sugar, no yeast, low carb diet...plus can't consume dairy with med. I'm having a hard time knowing what I can and can't eat. For example, what would you eat for breakfast when you have to take your med with it? Can't have milk, cheese, etc. Oh yeah.. I also cannot take iron with med, which leaves out most breakfast foods, b/c they're enriched with iron, such as cream of wheat. What can I have? I can't figure this out, and I'm hungry! [confused]

Make yourself an egg scramble. Cook some mushrooms, bell peppers, avacado, tomatoes, and onion in a skillet.

Cook them until they are mostly done and then poor some eggs into the skillet. Stir it up every couple minutes until done.

Or try this. You can add whatever veggies or herbs you like.

I have a whey protein shake with a scoop of greens powder and a scoop of fibre in it.

It is just whey, stevia, vanilla.

No added anything. So you don't have to worry about magnesium or calcium wrecking the efficacy of your meds.

I don't have an appetite these days, but before I liked to make Denver Omelette. Diced ham, tomato and green onion in an omelette.

Pancakes made with coconut flour and I'd put chia "jam" on them.

Roll a piece of roast beef around a stick of cucumber with a little mustard.

Umm...

Breakfast is tough!

Greta, how do you make that shake, with water or milk? and what is greens powder?

All these sound good. I'll try the scrambles and omelets with veggies, too. Mmmmmmm... Need something quick for some mornings, though. I'm not used to having all this preparation. Before, I rarely "cooked" breakfast. [Wink]

Breakfast? Whatever you would eat for lunch or dinner. Soup or stew is particularly good for breakfast. Left-overs from dinner, just heat on stove for a few minutes, add a fresh veggie.

Best to avoid the microwave for various reasons.

Mushrooms, eggs, veggies, excellent for breakfast, too.

Mix it up with the way you use culinary spices & garden herbs. Coconut milk & curry is wonderful for any meal, with many foods.

Best to avoid ANY packaged foods due to the additives and high glycemic index.

With every meal, include something from each of the 3 categories:

Protein;

carbohydrates (2 vegetables, small portion of select whole non-gluten grains - wild rice is best. Black and Red Rices are good, too, in small amounts - complex, nutritious, & good glycemic index);

fat (of the best kind, of course).

Why packaged foods can be so damaging to us:

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=029690;p=0

Excitotoxins; MSG; Aspartame; & "Natural" Flavors (that are not likely natural at all);

GMO foods that destroy the GI Tract; Gluten; Dairy.

(If you do consume dairy, best if from a certified organic source. Still, you might want to read the NYT article and comments first and see how you might do off all dairy for a while. Gluten is most important to avoid but dairy can also cause a whole lot of trouble, even if organic.)

Breakfast is tough... I just cannot eat the same foods for breakfast as I eat for lunch/dinner. I usually eat 2 hard boiled eggs for breakfast and recently tried a few of the recipes below. You could also make squash or coconut pancakes for a treat.

Here are a few other low carb options:

zucchini cakes: http://www.maryvancenc.com/2013/08/paleo-grain-dairy-free-zucchini-cakes/#more-3638
or
Paleo Grain & Dairy Free Zucchini Cakes
http://www.thehealthychef.com/2012/10/gluten-free-zucchini-fritters/

Cauliflower Biscuits- You could sub 2 tbsp of coconut flour, instead of the 1/2 cup of almond flour. Leave out the nutritional yeast.
http://www.delightedmomma.com/2013/05/cauliflower-biscuits.html

zucchini pumpkin cookies - i also made these with butternut squash and i liked them even more!!

Happy day chick-those recipes look really good!

Bia-i use either cold coconut water or cold filtered water.

Greens powder is basically a bunch of dried veggies ground to a fine powder.

You can find it online or in the health food store. Just be sure to read the label to make sure it doesn't have any minerals added or artificial sweeteners or flavorings added.

I find the best way to drink the protein shake is with a straw.

I basically chug it down because the scoop of fibre leaves a texture I don't like. Haha.

Skip the cheese if that is something you can't eat.

Bla--if you're near a Whole Foods, they sell different kinds of greens powders in bulk.

But I just throw 1 loosely-packed cup of fresh baby kale + 1/2 cup berries in my smoothie (with protein, stevia, 3 tsp flax oil, unsweetened coconut milk. (Can you have a small amount of berries?) You can't tell that you're drinking greens--but your body can!

Another breakfast favorite--but not every day--is grass-fed bacon and sausage from a local csa.

Thanks for the recipes, winesnob and happyday!

Thanks for all these recommendations...wew, it'll be a journey learning all this, haha. I never even knew coconut flour existed. BTW, how is coconut milk ok when it's so high in fat, isn't it?

Also, I wonder if I can even have whey since it's a dairy product and is the sweet part of milk from what I can gather by what I read. Doc didn't say to refrain from dairy altogether, but did suggest it might be a good idea.

I'll need to read through these replies a few times, I'm sure, so thank you all! I will try these, cheers! [Smile]
