    Nothing will ever make me hate salad. There are few things on Earth better than a quality chicken caesar salad. Food of the Gods.

    What most people said. A bowl of cereal isn't going to kill him. Either try and substitute it with something else or let it go.

    I hate to break it to you, but nuts are full of anti-nutrients.

    What I make for him now is nut "cereal". I put a mixture of nuts (almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, etc., NOT peanuts) into the blender and pulse it 'till it's chunky and there's a little bit of nut powder. I mix in some melted coconut oil and a lot of cinnamon, spread it on a cookie sheet, and bake it at 250F for 10-15 minutes. When cooled, I mix in some chopped dried cranberries, dried cherries, and dried apricots. It's crunchy and it never gets soggy in milk! I usually make a big batch every couple weeks and freeze part of it (it thaws quickly at room temperature).

    Sweetie uses less of this than he did of his wheat cereal because it's more filling, and he sometimes puts frozen berries over the top. He still gets his carbs via the dried and frozen fruit, but none of the anti-nutrients that are in grains.

    When I'm done with my Whole30 I'm going to take a small amount of this "cereal" and mix it with melted dark chocolate, for a treat.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    I have nothing really against meat and vegetables. Unless that's all I'm eating. I just feel like them at all for breakfast and it doesn't put me in good stead for the rest of the day when it comes to energy and mood.

    Ditto, except for maybe potatoes and kumara.

    I don't understand how some people in my staffroom can eat mounds of lettuce/carrot/tomato - like, literally about the size of my head of rabbit food). It's mind boggling.

    This forum has now reached the point where every single thread is hijacked.

    Can't someone just get some fricking suggestions for alternatives to breakfast without all this BS erupting?

    I have a real problem with consuming nuts, they really inflame me. But it seems like some people tolerate them really well. I wonder if specific subsets of people are more sensitive to certain anti-nutrients/lectins.....

    Many, many times more than grains. Nuts have on average the highest anti-nutrient content of "typical" foods. The only thing that rivals them is cocoa powder and coffee grounds. I believe almonds contain ten times more anti-nutrients than wheat.

    I'm not much for lettuce (unless using it for a wrap) but I can ingest copious amounts of spinach/kale along with various other veggies in a salad... Usually comes after a nice steak/pork chop/etc., but there's nothing wrong with a good salad.

    Tell your husband to avoid Potatoes, Bread, Grains and to join the Holy Church of the G.I Index and that he should make at least 4 anti-nutrient prayers a day.



    Anything that gives off pleasure should be avoided. Tea, Coffee, Cocoa all evil.
