Bagels or Donuts? .
BAGELS all the way! .
Bagels were my favorite food for breakfast until I learned they contained the same material as a yoga mat. .
I was horrified and gave them up. Now i found @daveskillerbread bagels made from 27g of Whole Grains AND 12g of plant protein. .
This girl is going to be having herself some bagels.
"A good laugh is sunshine in a house." -William Makepeace Thackeray. It's been quite some time since I've been able to sit down and enjoy a homemade Sunday breakfast complete with whole grain waffles (5g protein and Fiber!), homemade sugar-free maple syrup (to satisfy my sweet-tooth), hazelnut coffee with a drop of almond milk, and a side of fruit (strawberries and clementines are my go to fruits and are rich in Vitamin C, an antioxidant which helps support and boost our immune system). #sundaymorning#goodmorningsunshine#wholegrains#fiber#strawberries#clementines#vitaminc#antioxidant#immunity
In need of many a biscuit to dunk into our tea this afternoon, so the crumbliest peanut butter and oat biscuits, topped with a layer of sweet-sharp raspberry jam and dipped in bitter dark chocolate, giving the outer layer a lovely snap, are coming up! These will be making an appearance at the end of the meal I'll be cooking for our @borsch_and_no_tears' Breakfast at Tiffany's #KinoVino Valentine's Day... yum yum! Full menu coming very soon, can't wait to tell you all about it!

Happy birthday to me! 34 years around the mixing bowl. I have a few traditions to celebrate myself:
1. I make one little layer cake for each year of life. This tradition is almost a decade in the making.
2. I usually postpone major festivities until February bc making that many tiny cakes is a lot of work. These little beauts were from my 32nd. 😆🎂🍰 www.WithTheGrains.com
Congee is overnight porridge made of whole grains and up to 12 times as much water. Slow cooked and ultra hydrating, this delicious breakfast is a gently cleansing morning comfort food. New video link in bio or visit Breakfastcure on YouTube
Meal Prep for dinner = Carrot spirals with salt, pepper, and pesto. I added some brown rice on the side, peas, and chicken. This makes my week so much easier. What are you prepping this week?
WEEK ONE RESULTS ARE IN:
1. Increased the amount of weight I lifted on several exercises
2. Lost inches all over
3. 2 inches off my bust and 3 inches off abdomen
4. So much more energy all day long
5. Sleeping better, longer, and with fewer interruptions of restlessness
I'm so glad I found a program that fits my needs, my lifestyle, and a nutrition plan that I can stick to. I am feeling fantastic!!
Sunday's are generally pancake day in our household. I have been experimenting with new pancake recipes these holidays. Today's version was made using @barleymax high fibre wholegrain flour which has an inherent natural sweetness so I did not need to add any sugar to the recipe. If you would like the recipe and a sample of the flour, let me know and I can post one to you (Australia only)
For our second episode of WILL IT WAFFLE?...Grilled Cheese Sandwiches 🧀
This was the easiest grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever made! Not that making a grilled cheese is hard but this was “grilled cheese for dummies.” 🤪
To go with it, I turned our leftover roast and veggies from earlier in the week into vegetable beef soup. Except it was a venison roast...but I did use beef stock 🤔
So the verdict for WILL IT WAFFLE? Grilled Cheese Sandwich edition...Yes! Grilled Sandwiches will waffle.
We still have brownies on our list to waffleize. Any other suggestions?
Blondies made with whole grain teff flour and Sorghum flour!! Basically they are brownies without cocao powder.😜 Teff flour adds little crunch kind of grainy texture. They were even better next day after sitting in fridge overnight. Still need some improvement but this recipe is a keeper. I ate way too many..😋 It's a victory when gluten free recipes turn out better than expected.
#DAILYDETOXTIP Forget the low-carb eating plan! Whole grains and legumes are full of fiber which is essential for cleaning out those pipes! They travel through your intestines and scoop up the toxins, showing them the way out! It is like a clean sweep! They are also packed with B vitamins which help heal the liver from toxins like alcohol, cigarette smoke, heavy metals, and more. Some delicious and healthy examples of whole grains are: brown rice, buckwheat, millet, oats, and quinoa (which is actually a seed that acts like a grain.) For legumes, choose beans, chickpeas, or split peas.
How to Eat: Whole grains make great breakfast foods like oatmeal and porridge. Brown rice and quinoa are great sides for a veggie stir fry (or you can add meat, too!). They also make great additions to soups and salads.
Dr. Greger’s list of foods to eat daily for maximum health benefits (from @livekellyandryan).
🍓Berries. Full of fiber, antioxidants, and phytonutrients - berries pack the healthiest punch of all of the fruit and Dr. Greger calls them “food for the brain.”
Flax seeds (ground) - good source of fiber and omega 3s, flax has potent anti-hypertensive effects and has even been shown to lower risk of breast cancer. Grind them fresh every day or keep them already ground stored in a tightly sealed container in your fridge to maximize freshness.
🥗Greens (kale, collards, Swiss chard, spinach, arugula, etc.). The healthiest vegetables with the most nutrients per calorie (including protein, fiber, calcium, iron, and phytonutrients), greens help protect the heart and the brain and can slow aging. They should be eaten in abundance every day.
🍞Whole grains. High in fiber, minerals, and protein, whole grains help with satiety, lower cholesterol, and protect against heart disease. Don’t be afraid of them.
🌯Beans/legumes. Consumed by the longest living people on Earth (= Blue Zones), legumes help protect against heart disease, diabetes, and many other diseases. They are an excellent source of protein and other minerals. Eat them!
🥜 Nuts - Walnuts have the highest omega 3s. All nuts are a great source of healthy fats and fiber. Filling and delicious - nuts can lengthen your lifespan!
Purple cabbage/cruciferous veggies (raddichio, cauliflower, broccoli, etc.)- full of phytonutrients & potent anti-cancer properties.
🍄 Mushrooms- immune system boosters and full of vitamin D, incorporate cooked mushrooms into your daily routine.
🍵 💧 Water, teas (green, habiscus). Hydration is key. Some teas offer the added advantage of antioxidants and blood pressure lowering effects.

My new obsession: sushi vinegar 🙆🏽🙆🏽🙆🏽🙆🏽 ooobbbbsseessseeeedddd
Non-vegans be like "what would I eat if I was vegan?!" And I'm like "MUSHROOMS!!! And grains!!! And avocado!!! And tamari!! And SUSHI VINEGARRRRRRRRR"😝😝😵😵😲😲😛😛
Hi, I’m Karen, breakfast fanatic and bicycle lover who is happiest when dancing. I love food, books & learning. I love people too, so I don’t mind talking about taboo health subjects like digestion because it’s crucial to feeling fabulous. There is so much life to love. Are you with me on that?
Saturday morning bake for patients and in honor of all my sisters marching all over the world! 💖🌎😻**
Rye always wins my heart. Did you know that one cup of whole grain rye has nearly 50% of your daily recommended value for Magnesium, and nearly 25% of iron and b6. These are vital vitamins and minerals that our body needs for fuel and nourishment. Not to mention it’s full of fiber, and is low glycemic, so it won’t spike your blood sugar. I have several pre-diabetic patients who order it every week and are able to keep their blood sugar levels lower and their weight down, largely in part because of the rye bread (they report!). Whole grains that are freshly milled, organic, and fermented are full of nutrients, friends! If you ever have any questions or want to know more, come to one of my classes or message me! Big love! **
La quinoa es un grano que tiene caracteristicas de un cereal, es de carbohidratos complejos y a diferencia de muchos cereales aporta proteina y grasa saludables a menor medida que carbohidratos.
✔Entre sus beneficios estan que no contiene gluten lo cual es ideal para las personas que son intolerantes, celiacas o tienen alguna sensibilidad al gluten.
✔Tambien es de bajo índice glicémico (significa que no eleva tanto los niveles de glucosa en sangre)
✔Ayuda a controlar los niveles de colesterol en sangre
✔ Tiene alto contenido en fibra lo cual ayuda a combatir estreñimiento
✔Tiene muchos minerales y es bueno para los deportistas como carbohidrato complejo para almacenar el glucógeno muscular.
A diferencia de el arroz , esta no tiene almidón por lo que es un poco más fácil de digerir.
Existen varios tipos de quinoa, como negra, blanca, inflada y muchas otras , la más común es la blanca como la de la imagen y puedes utilizarla en ensaladas, como cereal para desayunar o en algun postre.
Antes de cocinarla no olvides dejarla remojar en agua como 2 horas o poquito mas si lo deseas, esto va a ayudar a que se elimine el acido fitico que contiene, mejore la digestion y le quite un sabor amargo.
Para cocinarla es utilizar 2 tazas de agua por cada taza de quinoa que desees cocinar, y se coce entre 15- 20 minutos. .
Many mushroom risotto with leeks, onions, garlic and carrots with homemade red sauerkraut and lovely green leaf salad with pomegranate dressing...it tastes better than it looks.
I've put some posts on facebook recently about increasing immunity in the winter. This dish does follow the advise to t...plenty of veg, some whole grains and mushrooms...some of which are medicinal mushroom shiitake, which is great as they are good source of B vitamins, food source of vitamin D, the may also aid weight loss, increase energy, support cardiovascular system and improve immunity...and a bonus... they are delicious xxx

People ask me what I eat for breakfast.
I'm a celiac who's also allergic to dairy and eggs. That makes it the most difficult meal to make.
Over the years I've come up with this concoction: buckwheat, flax, millet, and quinoa. With some spices mixed in. Its a very whole grain oatmeal style thing. (I can't eat oats either)
Some days I call it slop 'cause I'm sick of it. Other days I feel blessed that I can still eat something so wonderful.
Such a great morning of teaching today! All my classes are bespoke and today's lovely student, Lynette, wanted to learn more about vegan baking and using alternative flours instead of white flour... so we got on with these delicious wholegrain brown teff, hazelnut and Suffolk apple muffins using @rudehealth's creamy hazelnut milk and a good teaspoon of @steenbergsuk cassia, a little like cinnamon but a bit more fragrant and punchy; @hodmedod's quinoa flour and mixed vegetable and seed loaf, (I'll post the recipe for it soon, it's great for not wasting any floppy vegetables hanging around in your fridge!); date, banana and walnut loaf with a little molasses for extra depth and lovely nutty @sharphampark wholegrain spelt flour, plus some super quick and easy peanut butter and oat biscuits, yum yum YUM! You can see more in my stories and if you'd ever like to come for a class, just drop a line to me at email@example.com. Hope you all have a wonderful evening, I'm off to Bristol for a night with my big bro to see our big sis and family, can't wait! 🌱👩🏻🍳♥️🌿🌸 #TheNaturalBaker#NaturalBaking#PastryChef#Baker#CookeryClass#Wholegrains#Vegan#EatTheSeasons#EatLocal#BritishIngredients#BritishFarmers#AlternativeIngredients naturally #GlutenFree#Flours#Cake#Bread#Biscuits#Foodism
I love Saturdays because I have all the time in the world to cook meals exactly the way I want to. This morning I’m having non-fat greek yogurt from @traderjoes with apples, walnuts, @kindsnacks raspberry granola with chia seeds, and a sweet potato with a honey drizzle 🍯
My first @simplycookcom attempt.. Head over to www.simplycook.com and enter code DR1312 on check out after picking your first 4 meals (one box = 4 meals) delivered for only £1 instead of £9.99. "Mexican pulled chicken" definitely hooked, I always have loads of chicken in the house so I selected mostly chicken recipes, you get a recipe card with a small perforated edge you rip off for your "Shopping list" like sweet potato, brioche buns and coleslaw ingredients, unfortunately I couldn't find white cabbage for my coleslaw so had to buy ready made coleslaw *hangs head in shame* everything else from seasoning and the recipe card, really easy steps to follow and relatively low fat/carbs (you definitely want that brioche bun and a decent heavy slaw, not the watery low fat stuff) you poach the chicken which removes actually quite a lot of visible fat in a foam, I used 1 cal olive oil spray for the sweet potato seasoning, use the whole tub of sauce in everything it's not that spicy to burn your face off (you can add as much or as little from the pots to your tastes) tasted AMAZING! I had a second burger and I used 3 chicken breasts instead of 2, I ain't gone lie 🍔 shredded chicken burger spicy Mexican fries, slaw deliciousness!...
