    My favorite Russian breakfast, syrniki was not mentioned. They really are delightful, a great childhood memory--a weekend breakfast, of course. Weekdays it was hard boiled eggs or rye bread with a slice or cheese or kasha (porridge).

    Whilst it talks about the link (or the lack of it) to weight gain and obesity, I think the reason why you should eat breakfast is so that you can supply your body and brain with a steady supply of glucose so that they can work optimally (plus other macro and micro elements that you need).

    I alternate between oatmeal, cooked in nonfat milk and fresh berries on some days and one of Trader Joe's high fiber mini-muffins, 4 strips of turkey bacon, and 1/2 cup of frozen mango on others. Works great ... especially because it is strawberry season ... and I can get my strawberries fresh picked ... and it really tastes good with the oatmeal.

    On weekdays, oatmeal with nonfat milk, half a banana, egg whites, low fat muenster or jarlesburg cheese, 1 large teaspoon of nonfat European style yogurt. Sometimes I'm still hungry. On weekends, I alternate between millet, amaranth or buckwheat hot cereal with nonfat milk, handful of potatoes o'brien or oat bran, eggs with low fat muenster or jarlesburg cheese and non-nitrate black forest ham, piece of fruit. And if I'm still hungry, celery with eggplant hummus and/or lentils and/or millet puffs.

    On workdays, a banana, or yogurt or a granola bat, at my desk, and always, always, green tea with honey.
    On the occasional weekends when I am not working, the hubby will make me bacon and eggs, or pancakes, or sometimes a nice pot of oatmeal.

    A glass of soy milk and then either a bowl of instant oatmeal or one of those bars of breakfast "cookie", both of which are loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients

    That's my strategy too when I'm in the UK. Particularly useful in London where meals are so friggin' expensive.

    Even the vegetarian version (beans and cheese instead of bangers, bacon, or even black pudding *shudder*) is filling enough to keep you going til dinner.

    When I'm at home though it's much simpler fare: yogurt, fruit, and granola during the week, and either cereal & fruit or something cooked most weekends (oatmeal, French toast). If I need something more portable, then a smoothie and either a granola bar or a muffin.

    Coffee (black, no sugar) every morning too but I don't consider it part of breakfast.

    3 meals a day is a relatively recent invention of the last few centuries.
    Prior to that, most people ate one large meal a day, typically in the afternoon when they came in tired from working in the fields!
    Animals don't wake up and make breakfast, they eat when food is available.

    Your body is designed to cope until food becomes available, and all the drip feeding that we do now makes the body lazy and inefficient!

    We overload our systems with acidic food and become sick.
    If we all abandoned our modern diet and went back to eating a diet of 80 to 90% fruit and vegetables, cancer, diabetes etc. would all be diseases of the past!!

    I have done extensive research on cancer in particular. My mother, father and brother and numerous other relatives have died of cancer.
    I have left no stone unturned to try to maximise my chances of escaping the disease.

    Cancer cells cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
    Our modern diet is rich in sugar, processed foods, bread pasta, cheese etc. all of which are highly acidic.
    So our modern diet gives cancer an environment in which it thrives.

    If you change to a diet rich in alkaline foods such as fruit, vegetables, almonds etc. the cancer will not survive.
    There is a clinic in Mexico that has had enormous success with treating cancer in this way.
    https://gerson.org/gerpress/gerson-clinic-mexico/

    Patients usually end up in this clinic when conventional medicine has failed, so their success is even more remarkable.

    It is well documented across the internet that cancer doesn't occur in an alkaline environment.
    So common sense would tell you that if you keep feeding your body an acidic diet, you will run the risk of cancer!

    Further we throw away apple pips because they are poisonous. Yet our bodies have evolved to be able to process this poison in small quantities. However, for cancer cells, this poison is toxic. So keep on eating apple pips, the vitamin B17 is toxic for cancer!

    I am sorry about your losses. I wish this were so easy.

    IceAlisa,
    It is and it isn't so easy.
    The program which is so successful at treating cancer at the Gerson clinic is not for the faint hearted.
    You must drink green leafy veg drinks (highly alkaline) up to 14 times per day.
    You must also have coffee enemas to help flush out all the crap that has accumulated in your body over the years of a crap diet.
    The diet is also highly restrictive with no meat or fish or dairy.

    The diet has a highly laxative effect and is tough to live through.
    It also takes time to undo all the damage that chemo and a life long crap diet have done.
    But the results are time and again consistent, patients who have stuck to the diet have recovered from terminal cancer.
    Patients who were told to go home and die have recovered.

    I am not waiting until it gets to that point, I had a wake up call when I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis.
    I talked to my specialist and he said that my lifelong acidic diet, high in alcohol, sugar and processed foods was the cause of my osteoporosis.
    He explained that the blood has to stay at PH level 7.4 or we will die. So when you feed your body foods like sugar with a highly acidic PH balance of 5.5, the body uses calcium and other chemicals to neutralize that acid to a PH level of 7.4. Where does the body get the calcium and other chemicals? Normally from your diet, but when you overload the body with acid, then there is not enough and the body then takes it from your bones. Which is what has happened in my case!

    My specialist also explained that osteo-arthritis and other auto-immune diseases such as diabetes are all directly linked to our modern acidic diet.
    In the parts of the world where they still eat a diet with 80% + fruit and veg, cancer and these other 'Western' diseases simply don't exist!

    Basically, the Western world needs to wake up and realise that our modern diet is killing us!

    Sorry for the rant, but I feel sick when I see what sugar in particular is doing to us all.
    The obesity all being caused by sugar addiction!

    I don't really eat breakfast. I might have a snack in the morning, but I'm just not hungry enough for an actual meal so it ends up being extra calories that I don't need.

    Shakshuka can be a breakfast food in Israel, but it's eaten at other meals, too. What's referred to as an Israeli breakfast will usually include a chopped vegetable salad, eggs, bread, and soft cheeses & spreads. I don't think most people can manage that at home on a daily basis, however, or at least, not all of it.

    Some of it, at least - David Lebovitz (who is wonderful, of course) covered a lot of stuff in that post... You can see some examples in this article (in Hebrew, but you only need the pictures ).

    Wow. I need to go to Israel, if only for this.

    Cereal with in season fruit, orange juice, or a half a bagel with cream cheese

    Israeli breakfasts are awesome - you don't need lunch after you'd had one!

    Nothing. I haven't eaten breakfast in years. In fact, I don't ever recall a time when my mom like "fed us breakfast" before sending us off to school. By the time I was in Junior High, she didn't even get up anymore to make sure we got up to go to school (and no, she did not work outside the home). Who knew you could just like .... not go! (dysfunctional family memory .... continue thread).

    Occasionally I might go to the cafeteria and get a juice and donut or bagel if I get to work early enough, but I don't start work until 9a and most of the good stuff is gone by then, so most of the time I don't even bother going down.

    You have food allergies? Can you at least eat Wasa crisps or crackers? They are bland at least.

    a place by me sells it for breakfast but i cant get up and eat a whole meal like that. i stumble around like a drunk for a couple of hours.

    my breakfast is black coffee. after the 2nd, i begrudgingly accept the day. if im hungry at that time, i have pear sauce with flax seeds or a kale shake. but most of the time i prefer to wait until lunch.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!
