Let's Talk Breakfast: What Do You Eat? Weekly Q&A


The Nutrition Heretic's Weekly Q & AWhy do we export our sub-quality food while complaining that other countries also do the same?  This week on the Nutrition Heretic's Weekly Q&A, the discussion revolves around garlic.  Is it a poison?  Why isn't it good for preserving?  What has Nikola's experience been with it?  Adrienne talks about what she's learned while earning a certificate as a Master Food Preserver to shed some light on the ins and outs of preserving and why starchy foods are not preserved. What do you consume for breakfast?  What's the difference between what Europeans and Americans eat; find out what our hosts typically eat, and how they change things up.

Tune in to hear this week's questions:

Today's episode ends not with questions for Adrienne, but rather with Adrienne asking questions to a listener, Judy:

  •  Why doesn't my hen lay eggs anymore?

Day 22 - Can you do it? Yes, you can!

It may seem weird, but the Law of Attraction has EVERYTHING to do with food. Yes, I know we talked about this before, but now we’re approaching it from another angle. Humans often reject what is best for them by inventing problems and reasons why they can’t follow through. This is one of the most common objections that I see. It’s also one of the most easily managed obstacles. See how you can rise to the occasion to get what you want in food — and in life. Watch today’s video here:

I’m steadily increasing the amount of starch in my diet. This morning I had about 1/2 cup of oatmeal followed by a little stew left over from dinner (trust me, stew or soup is delicious first thing in the morning). Tonight, I had chili with beans and guacamole. I even had a tablespoon of rice. So far, lots of energy still and haven’t lost any of the other benefits experienced since I started the Challenge.

To make oats easy to digest, I don’t eat them in their raw state like so many people will suggest is best. Instead, I soak them after dinner in a crockpot with water rinsed off of my kefir grains. Before going to bed, I put add some additional water and milk and turn the crock pot on low. The grains will cook all night and will be delicious by morning. Everybody can just feed themselves. The same time spent as pouring a bowl of cold cereal, but so much more satisfying, delicious and nutritious! So easy!
