What to Eat When There is Nothing to Eat

By Tracyrosen @tracyrosen


Earlier this week a friend of mine asked via email what I eat for breakfast since I’m not eating grains (cereal, toast…) and dairy. Some people think that without these things I must have nothing to eat. I’m ashamed that I haven’t replied yet! Between report card season at work and simultaneously trying to pack and keep a neat as a pin house for showings so that it sells, my mind is distracted.

Here’s an example of a typical breakfast. FYI it took less time to make than it took for my mother to make her toast.

It’s a mix of lettuces, leftover broccoli, apple, raisins, pumpkin seeds, a few raspberries, and 2eggs that I cooked in the microwave for 1 min while throwing everything else into the bowl. I topped it all with lime juice, salt, and pepper.

Other days I’ll have something similar but with bacon or a leftover meat. Other days a handful of mixed raw nuts and a banana. Some days I’ll throw that handful of nuts into a bowl with whatever fruits and berries I have around, maybe some pumpkin and sunflower seeds, and pour almond or coconut milk over the whole thing to satisfy an urge for cereal.

I find that when I eat protein for breakfast I’m fuller longer. And I’m full with the kind of stuff that helps to keep me growing healthy, not breads and cereals that promote inflamation and swelling and don’t offer any nutritional benefit that I don’t get in greater doses with fresh fruits, veggies, meats, fish, and nuts.

So that’s what I eat when there’s nothing to eat!
