Here are 3 different alkaline diet breakfast recipes to suit all kinds of tastes and a variety of ingredients:
Breakfast #1: Buckwheat with Veggies
Now this is what I like to eat mostly for breakfast, I’m a little bit strange in that most people don’t like to eat big meals for breakfast and a savoury meal. I typically get up at 6am and eat my largest meal of the day at 6:30 and it’s normally buckwheat. I love it.
Buckwheat is one of my favorite grains and so what you do, you just take 100 or 200 grams of it (it normally takes 10 minutes to cook, a lot quicker than rice) and have it with big loads of vegetables like mushrooms, celery, red peppers or tomatoes. Add a simple sauce to it then, may it be spices or some black pepper, stock cube or even some agave syrup to give a little sweetness to it.
This meal is great in sustaining energy all throughout the morning and I recommend it for people who do morning long run or exercise session. 100 grams with vegetables and other things is equivalent to 500 calories and 1000 calories when doubled.
If a big savory breakfast is not appealing to you, let’s proceed to breakfast number 2.
Breakfast #2: Alkaline Porridge
So, I’ll have a jumbo organic porridge oats (raw), which costs about £2 per kilo which is about $3.30 in the US. And I’ll take 100 grams of raw porridge and have it with dates, which is one of my everyday staples. You simply chop 6 dates and mix them together with your oats and place a little bit of cinnamon in it. Lastly, you have to pour in your coconut milk which is organic and contains less fat and is not acidic, like dairy milk. In the UK, I’m using KoKo, and I’m sure on other countries you’d be able to have a different brand of coco milk for you to use.
Now a lot of people ask me, Is it coconut milk in a tin? No. That’s the different type of one that you’d put in things like curry and is used a lot in Thai cooking. This is coconut milk and is an alternative to dairy milk. It’s very low in fat, only 27 calories in 100 ml, which is less calorific than dairy milk and you’ll not be able to get all those growth hormones, pus, blood, leukemia cells and all the rest of the rubbish you get in standard dairy milk and of course it’s a lot more friendly to the environment and to the animals as well. The overall dish tastes really nice too.
Breakfast #3: Banana Green Smoothie
Now the third option which is a daily staple for me as well is a 6-banana smoothie. So you want your bananas first to be brown and spotty and super ripe. Literally, I blend
those 6 up in my Vita-mix and often times I’ll add some kale or spinach or cos lettuce or green lettuce, or some other kind of greens to make it a green smoothie.
These greens contain chlorophyll that boosts cell regeneration and also acts as an anti-aging agent, giving you a lot of alkaline minerals as well. If you’re worried of too much sugar and potassium in this smoothie, don’t fret! With potassium, you don’t need to worry about eating too many bananas. You’d need to eat about a hundred in a space of a minute to overdose of potassium.
You know, I had as many 20 banana smoothie once before and felt super energized. I’ve been able to run long distance because of it. 6 bananas I would say are about 5-600 calories. And yeah, it’s lovely and a fantastic breakfast idea. So this is my staple for running, typically when I do a 30 mile run. I’ll have a 6 banana smoothie first thing. In the morning and a big meal afterwards (which is the buckwheat dish I’ve mentioned earlier).
So there you have it. 3 alkaline meals, you’ve got buckwheat and an alkaline porridge and a banana green smoothie.
See, there’s always a way to get an alternative, an alkaline version of most standard meals. So instead of having a banana milkshake, just have a banana smoothie, and instead of having porridge with dairy milk, have an alkaline porridge. Instead having curry and rice with meat and fat, have your buckwheat. There’s always an alkaline food alternative to most standard western meals that you and I can enjoy. So go on and try them all out, and see what fits you best.
