Low Glycemic Breakfast Choices

by Courtney on October 1, 2010

Low-glycemic eating begs the question, “What to eat?”  To answer that question, I’ve posted some examples below of what I’ve been eating:


Chia porridge has been my main staple.  The great thing about chia is its just like eating oatmeal – relatively neutral alone, and can be played with depending on what ingredients you add to it.  Various items I’ve been adding (sometimes a few, sometimes many):

  • Carob
  • Cacao
  • Maca
  • Stevia
  • Raw, soaked buckwheat
  • Goji berries
  • Bee pollen
  • Mesquite
  • Nut Butters

Fruits that are lower on the glycemic index, such as grapefruits and berries, are ones I’ve enjoyed in the mornings.  An example might be an almond mylk and blueberry smoothie with goji berries and Vitamineral Green.

Salads and vegetables, though not a typically inclusive breakfast for most of our current paradigms, are often what I choose.  I almost always start out with 1/2 to 1 whole cucumber (even on days where I choose a sweeter breakfast as the main choice), sometimes I have cherry tomatoes, and a small spirulina salad.  Spirulina in the morning is great, as are the other protein foods I’ve listed (chia, bee pollen, gojis) – a little protein in the morning is especially good for women.

Green juice!!  Yes, green juice for breakfast.  Cucumber, celery, greens and lemon is my favorite.  Often, when I have a green juice for breakfast, I’ll take the opportunity to green-it-up even more and take E3 Live in the morning as well :)  Some of my best focus comes from a light morning’s consumption of mineral rich and alkalizing green juices and green superfoods.

With happy insulin response,
