Breakfast Cereal Recipe

I haven't tried this yet, though it's on my short list of things to try and experiment with.  Received the recipe from one of the members from the Firkin Scooter Club, of which I am a member.  Some of them are on a trip to Vietnam right now, lucky stiff's.

This person received it from their Naturopath Doctor.  Have had some people refer to them as quacks, but I never would as they're licensed and all that happy jazz.  Even insurance companies recognize them, not as primary care doctors (in my experience), but as specialists.

Before get to the recipe, here is a quote from person who sent it:
Lots of benefits to this.  I didn't like it at first but after the first couple of weeks I can't go without it. Been eating this now for about 6 mos. - If you have this as your first meal of the day it will stabilize blood sugar until about 3:00 PM even with other meals taken during the day.

I have already seen benefits shown in my lab work.  I am no longer taking a statin :)

Immune Support Breakfast

The modern american diet, which is high in refined carbohydrates, creates havoc with the body's digestive and elimination systems.  By strengthening the body's eliminative function, the functioning of the immune system is greatly enhanced.  The following recipe is not designed to be hypoallergenic and must be modified as needed to suit your personal dietary requirements.

It must be eaten 4-5 times a week for the effects to be noticeable.  People who use it regularly notice an enhanced immune system response and fewer allergic reactions, as well as improved digestion, and often report increased energy and stabilized blood sugars.  [The ND] often observe significantly lower cholesterol, triglyceride, and A1c levels.  High fiber diets have been demonstrated to reduce the risk of colon cancer.

  • 4 cups rolled oat grains, organic if available
  • 2 cups oat bran [marked down as 1/2 cup]
  • 1 cup chopped dried fruit or fresh fruit each day (optional)
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup raw, unsalted nuts, chopped
  • 1 cup lecithin granules [marked down as 1/2 cup]
  • 1 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup ground milk thistle seeds

Seeds can be ground in a blender or coffee grinder, or not.  Mix all ingredients well and store in an airtight container. For each serving, soak 1/2 - 1 cup dry mixture in rice milk, nut milk, diluted fruit juice or water.  In the winter months, try heating your soaking liquid first for a warm cereal.  This will decrease soaking time.
Cinnamon can help lower blood sugar.


NOTE:  As always, check with your doctor before making any dietary changes.

On a side note, Nikken has a meal replacement product, Kenzen Vital Balance.  This does similar things, with couple changes here and there, but it also does quite a bit more.
