I usually have my second favourite breakfast every day, which is a green smoothie. Quite often i follow it with my favourite breakfast.
|Freshly baked bread||My favourite breakfast|
Today i actually began with some freshly made Concorde grape juice as there is an abundance of grapes here at the moment, and i know it is very healthy for me to drink this. i diluted the grape juice 50/50 with water first. It is very important to dilute most juices before drinking.
Then, after some chanting, and a long talk with my friend @mountainman who called by to say hi, i made my 2nd breakfast (actually it was by then lunch as it was around 2pm when i sat down to eat).
I loaded the bread-maker last night and set it on timer so it was ready around 10 am for when i had finished my daily morning practice. I altered the standard recipe as i usually do, this time to the following (it varies a bit each time i make bread):
Fresh and Relatively Healthy Bread
300 g Limetz flour
200 g Wholewheat flour
10 g Muscovado sugar
15 grams olive oil
330 g water
7 g Himalayan salt
4 g dried yeast
Turmeric, black pepper & cinnamon.
My Nut Butter Blend
I add nut butter to the bread (which i usually toast - but as it was fresh out of the bread-maker i had it without toasting it today). I mix a blend of nut butter myself to spread on the bread (or toast). My nut butter mix is usually approx. 50/50 raw tahini & peanut butter with Himalayan salt, turmeric, black pepper and cumin. Sometimes i vary the spices.
Then i top the bread (or toast) with very thinly slices cucumber (organic from the garden).
I used to always have sliced tomato, but a couple of years ago having read some info. about tomatoes being part of the nightshade family, and a cause of inflammation and other health issues, i decided to stop eating them. i also don't grow them for same reason. However, i think next season i will grow some and introduce to my diet sometimes as an experiment.
My Version of Bulletproof Coffee
Now i know coffee is not supposed to be good for health, mostly because it is acidic. What i do however is make coffee (usually freshly ground) in a Mika pot, then add it to a french press (pre-heated - i like my coffee piping hot) to which i have already added some ground ginger, Cardamon, Turmeric, black pepper and stevia, then top up with more boiling water.
This gives me approx. two small cups of my version of "bulletproof coffee", the spices being the anti-dote to the acidity of the coffee - i think. Perhaps it's even healthy. It would be better if i added some coconut oil to increase the beneficial properties of the Turmeric even more, but that would need an extra stage of blending the coffee with the oil, so i rarely do so. It's all in the mind anyway!

So, there you have it. My favourite breakfast is a bit of an addiction, but a fairly healthy one, so says Ego anyway! :-)
What is your favourite breakfast?.
