Breakfast, they say, is the most important meal of the day. This is what I tell my children as this is what my mother told me. Most would agree. ZocDoc posted an article on the subject entitled "Is Breakfast The Most Important Meal? Fact Vs. Myth?" in which the author offered “what you eat for breakfast may be even more important than the act itself.”
This would be the part where I could tell you what I have for breakfast and expect you to listen to me, guru/devotee style. But I'm just one soul in this ever-expanding universe. Instead I will place my palms together and take a humble bow to modern day healers who have crossed my path in recent months, sometimes years. If there is a path to higher consciousness via the food we imbibe, maybe we can take a little insight from them. This week we start with Mu Larsen at Seeds of Wellness in South Pasadena. She shares her favorite way to start the day, culinarily speaking:
My favorite breakfast most days of the year is ">Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Organic ">Oatmeal cooked in a crock pot overnight with ">Golden Flax Seeds. In the morning I scoop out the steaming cereal in a bowl and add sliced almonds, raisins or chopped apples, flax oil, and organic grade b maple syrup.
I carry a boiled egg to have as a snack two hours later.
My morning beverage of choice is Yerba Mate with a splash of Edensoy Vanilla Soymilk and 1/2 teaspoon of honey.
