Standard breakfast evolution

leave a comment »

Without Pilates, my activity level has dropped, and thus my caloric requirements as well. That means some meal readjustments, and I just recently (following a vicious 24-hour gastric flu) found that my regular standard breakfast was rather larger than I realized. So I’ve adjusted it:


1/2 tsp tumeric
6 grindings black pepper
1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
1 or 1.5 Tbsp homemade pepper sauce

That goes into the pot along with 1 Tbsp (rather than 2 Tbsp, as before) of:

wheat germ
chia seed
flax seed
rolled mixed-grain cereal (formerly rolled oats)

Then I add:

1 scant cup boiling hot water (from tea kettle)
1/4 c (instead of 1/3 c) oat bran

while stirring briskly. I cook it, stirring it, until it thickens, then top it with:

1 egg, over easy, sautéed in 1 pat butter

That and a pint of black tea (which is why I boiled the water) is my new standard breakfast, and very tasty it is, too.

Fruit snacks have shifted from fuyu persimmons to Clementines.
