Today is day 2 of my breakfast experiment.
Yesterday was scrambled eggs, plain for breakfast and I felt decent afterward, didn't get too hungry, and didn't feel at all logy until after my 1 pm spaghetti lunch.
Today was scrambled tofu. I've never cooked or eaten tofu before and I may have gone a little overboard in the seasoning, because hubby kept telling me how important seasoning is. I can't say it's something I'd ever find myself. I feel a little hungry 3 hours later. I'm not sure what's on deck for lunch, but I'm certainly starting to think about it. I had a little headache starting and some uncomfortable feeling in my arms. Maybe soy is not the way for me to go.
Tomorrow morning, oatmeal. Traditionally, the feeling of oatmeal in my mouth has made me gag. I'm hoping for a miracle tomorrow. I purchased some organic instant maple and pecan concoction that sounded yummy and I thought the nuts might help me a bit with the texture issues. I don't really enjoy food that I don't have to chew. Perhaps that's a sensory integration problem, as it was occurring to me this morning with the tofu.
So the idea is to eat 7 days in a row 7 very different healthy breakfasts and pay attention to how my body reacts each day. In this way, I can dicscover which foods are the most beneficial to my own bio-individuality and which might cause certain sensitivities.
Day 4 will be boxed cereal (I shudder at the idea of mixed textures of cereal and milk together), Day 5 will be a healthy muffin, day 6 will be all fruit, and day 7 will be all vegetables. This isn't an ongoing breakfast plan by any means, or even a weight loss program. It's just a means of discovering how my own body reacts to different types of food.
