SB, sounds great BUT did you check the ingredients (sugar) in the granola bar? Those can be pitfalls. How about the same breakfast with a piece of fruit instead of the granola bar?

I have thought the same thing many times. But I am always on her case and realize that sometimes she needs the encouragement more than the criticism. My g'daughter used to love them. And she had a mouthful of braces. When her orthodontist found out what she had been munching on for the past months, he was horrified. There are a lot of ...oses in them. I would rather see her eat a piece of fruit. I know that the fruit can have it own sugar, but my son explained to me that it is absorbed at a much slower rate than processed sugar. I always thought that watermelon was nothing but sugar and water. But it is loaded with nutrients galore. I would rather see her eat a second piece of fruit, or a second yogurt or even two pieces of grain toast with PB&J. It would fill her and give her less processed sugar in her diet.

Because she works outside the home she tends to grab something quick and easy in the morning. Right now she is having a difficult time staying the course. Those temptations keep jumping in front of her. Specially on Friday when there are leftover pastries at the café. And she brings them home.

I have often thought of recommending her working with a dietician. But my personal experiences with them left me often wondering if they really had my best welfare in mind. Doctors don't get much training in diet in medical school. So they aren't much help either. I wonder if she were to join a group whereby she would get immediate face to face encouragement and feedback would be a help to her.

My doctor's practice has a nutritionist. Friends have had success working with naturopaths. I know when I cut out bread and processed sugar, my cravings went to zero for carbs/sweets. I just let temptation enter the kitchen but I am thinking I should soak some chickpeas so I can make more roasted curry chickpeas. Love those if I'm feeling a bit hungry but not hungry enough to mess up the kitchen.

Anyway, I started with a glass of Snip's "Tea." My breakfast came from the garden and the girls: Kimchi made from cabbage we grew (this was the previous batch--needed to eat it up), a large serving of steamed kale topped with 2 poached eggs, 1 fresh tomato (yummy!), and the only thing not from the garden but from SK was a serving of rice from the prairies (again--love that stuff). To down it all down, a large glass of beet-carrot-cucumber juice.
