I usually have a small fresh juice, a smoothie, cracker, a biscuit, or a little granola on a couple of spoons of soya yoghurt after, or before, I meditate. This keeps the rumbles at bay, and helps to wake me up a little, if I need it. My breakfast may be much later, around 9, or as late as 11:00am. It depends if I am practising yoga.
I try and go for variety with my breakfast, and as an eternal nomad, I tend not to have fixed foods in my diet, instead going for local seasonal produce; but I have some favourites. Top of the list is brown rice or millet (I’m mad for superfoods) and brown or green lentils, cooked together; sometimes, sprouted lentils or sprouted sunflower seeds with brown rice, and sometimes scrambled tofu (with turmeric) with brown rice.
Occasionally, I toast local bread, or freshly made sourdough bread, made with a combo of strong white and mixed seed flour. Usually served with avocado, olive oil, and olives. Occasionally, when I feel I need it, fresh fruit (kiwi, mango, melon) with a little soya yoghurt.
Once in a blue moon, I might treat myself to a vegan sausage in home made bread sandwich, or chillied red peppers and tomatoes (a great kickstart, with a bit of orange zest in it, no onions or garlic, I don’t eat them).
