Any suggestions on a quick, nutritional, zone-friendly, breakfast without dairy products? I'm getting a little tired of oatmeal.
Thanks!

Here's my typical breakfast.

32 oz. Smoothie:
5 carb blocks of frozen fruit
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, fresh ground
2 Tbsp. flax seeds, fresh ground
1 Tbsp. cod liver oil
Water to complete 32 oz.
+
Can of TJ's wild salmon (5 blocks protein)
Organic tamari 2 tsp.
Olive oil 2 tsp.
Fresh ground pepper

Note that I'm on 2-3x fat blocks, others would need to modify the fat intake as necessary. Hope this gives you some ideas.

Basic question on smoothies.

Do you fill with water to 32 oz before you blend or is that 32 oz after you blend? I don't know if there would be much of a difference in volume or if it would matter one way or another.

Eric,
I add all of the "solid" ingredients to the blender (jar) first, then fill with water to total 32 oz.

I'll be starting a new thread soon where I describe how to make one-dirty-dish smoothies with a normal blender...other than just drinking straight out of the blender jar...

For a 5 block meal (Duncan):

4 blocks of oatmeal, a little more than normal water, cook as instructed. With 30 seconds left, stir in 1 block of frozen blueberries (or any berries you like). Add 5 blocks of chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, and pecans are great), add 5 blocks of vanalla whey protein powder (I like Low Carb Grow). If you need to, Splenda to taste. If in a hurry, I put this in a cup with a plastic spoon and eat in the car with a bottle of water. Usually slam Carlson's fish oil when this is cooking.

That sounds great, Dr. G. I don't have a blender but have been considering getting one to make smoothies.

Hey Eric this is a great blender because it is so easy to clean and goes through frozen fruit easy.

My wife got it to make baby food but it is now a crossfit-refueling device. I have never used any of the attachments just the blender and its mixing cup, which is also a measuring cup.

Hmm, if have to wake up super early i'll have a shake and eat a proper meal when i get home later in the morning. Generally for breakfast i'll eat left over dinner, or veggies, meat, fish, fruit.. i used to have oats all the time, but after i took them out of my diet for a couple of weeks, then introduced them again, i wanted to go back to bed! :yawn:
