“When you have bacon and eggs for breakfast, the chicken makes a contribution, the pig makes a commitment.”
Experimenting With Breakfast Foods is kinda fun
Breakfast is the most intensely discussed and debated meal of the day by far when it comes to the never-ending quest to be “healthy”.
Breakfast wasn’t a celebrated event growing up. It was “hurry up and eat” my bowl of cold cereal or risk being late for school.
I wasn’t always hungry or in the mood for it but I did what the grownups told me to do. In my home, skipping breakfast was akin to blasphemy. Well, at least the general shouting in my direction seemed to indicate something wrong.
Eating breakfast as an adult is a different story. There’s growing evidence that eating a breakfast high in simple carbohydrates (think boxed cold cereal with milk, hot cooked cereal or a glass of fruit juice) increases the risk of Metabolic syndrome.
This has led to a growing interest in the health benefits of skipping breakfast entirely.
Cold Cereal and a Glass of OJ ain’t cuttin’ it
Metabolic syndrome is when multiple systems in your body have elevated levels (blood sugar, blood pressure, total cholesterol). Metabolic syndrome is a step on the ladder toward Type-II Diabetes diagnosis, heart disease and/or stroke.
While most medical professionals recommend eating something for breakfast, determining exactly what to eat is wide open to interpretation.
Enter The Breakfast Experiment
Seven different breakfast foods over a seven day period. You make notes on how you feel right after you eat and then again two hours later.
Experimenting with breakfast boosts vitality by helping you understand how your body feels after eating certain foods.
Once you know the language your body uses to communicate how it feels to your brain, you can choose foods that boost your baseline vitality more often.
For instance, you could feel fine right after eating a bowl of fresh fruit, yet have outrageous hunger pangs less than two hours later.
Or eating a muffin with a cup of coffee acts like an instant laxative, then you’re totally satiated without so much as a hiccup until lunch.
Experimenting with breakfast in real time while keeping track of the results. This is Bio-Individuality© in action.
The Breakfast Experiment was a revelation for me. I am a pretty staunch traditionalist. Maybe it’s my New England upbringing I dunno, but it wasn’t until I stopped drinking cows milk in my mid-30’s that I ventured beyond the boxed-cereal-scrambled-eggs-n-cheese-pancake-waffle paradigm.
Nowadays, a can of smoked trout with salad greens competes regularly with green smoothies and bowls of steel cut oats for my first meal of the day. Even when my first meal is closer to Noon than 9 am.
