I mentioned in a previous blog, "Outsides, Insides" that Specific Carbohydrate Diet breakfasts out are a cinch. Breakfasts at home are even better. They almost make the day begin (Like breathing out and breathing in). Starting here, starting now-- breakfast is going to be "Wow." By now you may think you have heard enough about "the most important meal of the day." You know that breakfast gives you energy, prevents low blood sugar, puts enough into your stomach to hopefully nudge something out. Breakfast is a great opportunity for a little well deserved self indulgence. Have it on a tray, on the balcony or patio or accompanied by the morning papers, listening to the chatty talk radio host, enhanced by a single flower in a bud vase, but have it! Here are ten great Specific Carbohydrate Diet breakfasts. They don't all require a recipe. Some have nuts, some, eggs and some dairy. Try to work with what you tolerate. These menu suggestions work for me as a celiac. Don't forget diary is optional and not mandatory on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet diet. I probably have ten more where these came from!
