Re: a question for sweetjade or sunfell
The thing with chicken broth bothers me because they can put that as an ingredient and not tell you what is in the chicken broth itself (hydrogenated oils etc). For a gluten/casein free diet though, this is probably of little concern as I doubt the broth to have gluten or casein in it. There are no casein and gluten free hot cereals that I can think of offhand, yet I know they exist and you may want to check your local specialty food store for this. Then again, what is wrong with fruit salad or salad in the morning? here is a really neat salad dressing from "Gods Banquet Table" By Ron Lagerquist & Tom McGregor, to accompany fruit or vegetables:
"Flax Fast lane Fantasy
1 Tbs. flax seeds
1 Tbs. sesame seeds
1 Tbs. sunflower seeds
1 Tbs. pumpkin seeds
1 Tbs. honey
4 Tbs. hot water
You are going to feel like a kid on Christmas eve fighting to get to sleep because of your excitement and expectation of breakfast in the morning.
Grind all dry ingredients in coffee grinder. You may have to separate the mix into two batches.
Grind raisins or date pieces until soft. Mix all dry ingredients, then add hot water to desired texture. This will thicken in a matter of one to two minutes so donít be afraid to allow it to be a little runny. Almonds can be replaced with just about any nut. Raw cashews are simply heavenly.
You are looking at a good 700 calories which is far less than a typical bacon and eggs breakfast. And this beauty has oils to help emulsify the accumulated havoc that has been wreaked upon your arteries by a heavy, sticky, cholesterol-laden, saturated-fat-filled, colon-clogging, pimple-producing, cancer-encouraging, disease-contributing, brain-dulling, old-fashioned, fat-fried breakfast.
