A friend turned me onto rye (full grain--looks like brown rice--she grinds it for rye bread). Love the chewiness of it (I soak it overnight and then cook it in the rice cooker for about 55 minutes). Today's breakfast was a fry-up of yellow sweet peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, some homemade chorizo sausage (a small patty that wasn't enough to shove in a casing from my sausage making spree), onion and a couple of T of homemade salsa. I dumped this on top of a "bed" of the rye. I was so full. According to the nutritional information re: rye, it has more fiber than wheat or oats so it makes you feel full longer. I ate the leftover rye for dinner. And the sausage was darned good.

Rocklobster, you're breakfast looks so good.

CWS, sounds like a really great and filling breakfast.

I have lots of fruit right now, so I had a fruit salad and 2 slices of sprouted grain bread.

Two poached eggs, purple barley, broccoli and a glass of milk. I read s/place that one should have 30 g of protein for each meal...don't think I got that for breakfast, but I wasn't hungry for lunch so only had a couple of tangerines.

Thanks to our local Kroger store. Yesterday they had fresh pineapple on sale 2 for 99 cents. I bought a bunch.

This morning we had homemade toasted English muffins with butter and fresh sliced pineapple. Oh, sooooo good!
