Hi Rosie,

That French toast is filling! Are you using the fat secret app or the phase 3 worksheet? It looks like you were pretty low on the fat % with this breakfast. It is an amazing feeling to be satisfied with a normal portion, enjoy

I use my fitness pal. Turns out the cream cheese wasn't fat free. It was 1/3 less fat. I could have done with a bit more fat though. Will keep that in mind for next time! Planning out tomorrow's breakfast now.

Hi Rosie - You are on a roll!!
I will be joining you on Phase 3 on Monday. I will be away from home for the first 2 days, so planning my shopping now. So many things I no longer have in the house - like fruit, cereal, bread, cheese......!!
I worked out some combinations of some of my favourites so I could just mix the ingredients around & quickly do a breakfast OP a la P3.
I love breakfasts, but mostly at 11 Early mornings require some degree of automatic pilot.

I will use some combination of:

spelt & kamut toast (made locally & yummy!) OR Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal OR cooked oatmeal or quinoa
combination of whole eggs & egg whites &/OR protein powder OR lean ham
almond milk, unsweetened
Greek yogurt, fat free
raspberries OR blueberries OR strawberries OR peaches OR combination
butter OR almond butter
sometimes a dash of salsa OR Dijon mustard with WF pancake syrup

I figured if I limit my choices, I have a mix-&-match smorgasbord

But I must admit, your strawberry & cream cheese affair sounds wonderful - I might have to branch out earlier than planned

I am watching your progress as you lead the way, just ahead of me.

Hi Westwillow,

It looks like you have Phase 3 already on lock down!! You sound super organised. The strawberries and cream was good but it did take some effort in the morning. I notice that I'm gravitating more towards toast and granola with yoghurt and fruit in the mornings just because it's quicker and easier. I'm so loving having the fruit in the morning. I dream about the berries at night!

Breakfast yesterday (no time to post) was:-

1 slice 7 sprouted gain bread
1/2 tbsp unsalted NZ butter
1/2 Tbsp Vegemite
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup blueberries
4oz non-fat plain Greek yoghurt
1/8 cup (15g) Udi's GF Au Naturel granola

This came out a bit lower in the fat. Unfortunately I didn't have any almond butter or PB to supplement. Went to the organic store near work yesterday and they have a machine full of dry roasted almonds and you can make your own almond butter on site, so I picked some up. Looking forward to having it on toast for breakfast today. Yum!

4 oz non fat Greek yoghurt

First time eating almond butter. Delicious on a slice of toast. Will definitely buy more of this. Anyone have favourite almond butter brands?

Default P3 Breakfast Saturday

I made pancakes using Bobs Red Mills gluten free pancake mix with 1 egg, 2 egg whites, 3/4 C skim milk and vanilla extract, 1 T butter, cinnamon and nutmeg. This made enough for 4 servings so I will freeze the rest and then have them handy for mid week breakfasts. To make P3, I also had 1/2 C strawberries, 1/2 C blueberries, 4 oz non-fat Greek yoghurt and 1 T almond butter. Wasn't sure what to do with the almond butter so I licked it off the spoon. Do others add to their yoghurt and fruit? Is this good? Might give this a go tomorrow!

Almond butter is yummy smeared on good crunchy apple quarters. But maybe it is difficult for you to get good crunchy apples in Cayman Is? It also works well to do an Indonesian style breakfast with little chicken skewers and dip in mix of lime juice, soy sauce/braggs aminos, and almond butter. Alongside a bit of rice and then a piece of fruit or a mix of veggies.
Non-trad breakfast, lol. I'm really good at those.

Liana

I like Bob's Red Mill and also Pamela's GF Baking Mix which you can make anything out of - waffles, pancakes, biscuits, cakes, cookies whatever.

Great ideas Liana and thanks for the hot tip on Pamela's GF baking mix. I've seen some in the supermarket but didn't know it could be put to so many uses!

Default P3 Day 7 Sunday Breakfast

Had a few days away & busy work days, so no posting of my breakfasts for almost a week. Thus endeth my 1st week of P3:

10 fresh cherries
1/2 cup NF Greek yogurt, splash of Torani vanilla NS syrup + dash cinnamon
2 slices spelt/kamut toast
1/2 T almond butter
1 egg, 2 whites omelette, with 1 green onion + 1/2 garlic scape
2 T fresh salsa
2 cups coffee with Stevia

Rosie - I am currently using an almond butter from Costco - MaraNatha - but have enjoyed others as well, esp the 'crunchy' kind. Can't remember the brand at the moment.
I am surprised that 1/2 T is enough for [B]2[B] slices of toast! Portion control, portion control - my nemesis, I think.

Yes - I love to mix almond butter into yogurt - also like to add a bit of Torani vanilla syrup (sugar-free) - yumm

I think your breakfast ideas sound wonderful.

Liana - what great savoury breakfasts you concoct!!

I LOVE P3

So I added the almond butter into my Greek yoghurt this morning, along with a dash of WF pancake syrup and blueberries and strawberries. Amazing!!

I've just spent 10 mins packing my lunch for my first P4 day tomorrow. Chicken (leftover from a whole chicken in the slow cooker), arugula, half an avocado, red peppers and some blue cheese. I cannot wait!!

Way to go Rosie!!!

You have been so enthusiastic about P3 breakfasts & now you are on to Maintenance - congratulations!

Question: Did you leave the skin on your whole chicken in the slow cooker? I am looking forward to trying some things in mine as well - love that appliance!

Enjoy that lunch - sounds positively grand.

I did leave the skin on and then when it was cooked I kinda peeled it off. This is where I admit I was a little bit squeamish about removing it first. Looking back, I should have just hardened up and done it!

Good luck with the remaining days of P3!
