This question goes out to all of you watching your diet to keep your acne under control: what are some suggestions for breakfast foods? I have lunch/dinner covered, but everything that I used to eat in the a.m. is no longer an option. The two cereals that I loved to eat both had sweeteners in them, which I want to eliminate.... so, I am looking for ideas. And FYI, I am a big breakfast eater, meaning a piece of fruit won't cut it for me either.
I heard oats are good, make it with water and not milk.
May i ask what you eat for lunch and dinner?
as i mentioned in another thread....i'm skeptical about oats. i'm almost 100% sure that they give me little pimples right below my mouth...extending down to my chin. might not be for everyone...but i would suggest getting 100% clear, and then trying oatmeal to see if it affects you. (make sure that the ingredients are just oats...and nothing else)
eat lots of eggs. scrambled, hard boiled...etc.
you can make skillets (with peppers and potatoes and eggs and some meat).
or just eat the dinner leftovers from the night before.
I know, I am uncertain about the oats too. Prometheus, if you read this post, what are your thoughts?
As for eggs, I'm not sure how those affect my skin either. I suppose I do need to get 100% clear and stay 100% clear for a while, then introduce one thing back at a time and see how that goes. That will just require a lot of time and patience.
I thinking of eating celery with almond butter and fruit, and I bought some hot cereal made out of brown rice for an occassional breakfast (although I doubt it tastes good).
Sigh, I sure miss my cereal, waffles, french toast and pancakes. :-(
I am not sure what diet you are trying to follow. If you are following a low-carb diet "oats" are fine (as long as they are not the "instant" kind) They r OK because they are slow-releasing carbs and thus have a low Glycemic index. However, they do contain gluten, so promtheus will not approve of them.
I have porridge for breakfast. I could not imagine having lots of eggs or last night's leftovers for breakfast. Cooked eggs can also be very difficult to digest so these may not be "healthy" for you.
Right now during the parasite cleanse I am doing, I am only going to eat chicken and fish, but otherwise I eat lamb and occassionally organic red meat. Then for veggies I have either broccoli or cauliflor usually every day (although I love all veggies and buy what is in season or on sale), and a salad. For example:
Fish - tilapia, perch, trout
Fresh spinach salad or leafy green salad
