At breakfast ‘eat like a king’. Lunch time, ‘eat like a queen’. At supper time, ‘eat like a pauper’ “. I agree, breakfast should be our biggest meal of the day, not the other way around. Why is that? Because our body needs full energy as we start our day. Eating a good breakfast is the only way to refuel our energy stores after a night spent sleeping, and skipping breakfast can affect our overall energy level, and our health. There are reasons why some people eat a small breakfast or don’t eat breakfast. For those early workers, they may end up eating while driving, eat later in the morning or they may end up not eating breakfast at all. I used to eat less in the morning, sometimes I felt like I didn’t have an appetite. Typically my heaviest meal of the day is lunch, but, I am doing much better now… well, I have to train myself! I hope you are eating a good, heavy breakfast too —not at dinner time!
But what about those people that don’t have food to eat at least twice a day? God provides as He always does, we just have to be diligent enough and ask Him to help us. We can plant our own fruits and vegetables. That’s a great idea… that will give us something healthy, organic and fresh to eat. Anyway, a breakfast menu doesn’t need to be complicated, at least in my opinion. Nutritious and filling food is what we need to start our day. This breakfast idea is as easy as cooking your fried rice. I used my homemade tofu in making this scrambled tofu.
1 pack firm tofu (about 3 cups when mashed)
1 cup onion, diced
1 TBspoon coconut oil
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 & 1/2 TBspoon nutritional yeast (optional, use available seasoning)
2 TBspoons chicken style seasoning powder (or any seasoning available)
1/2 cup peas or any veggies you like
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon kelp powder/granules (optional)
1/8 teaspoon mushroom seasoning powder (optional)
1. Drain excess water from tofu. In a medium size bowl, crumble tofu using fingers, spatula or a masher.
2. Heat cooking oil in a pan over medium heat. Sautee onion for about a minute. Add crumbled tofu and the rest of the ingredients. Stir occasionally. Cooking time may take about 15-30 depending on desired texture. Tofu will be slightly brown and firmer when cooked.
3. Eat scrambled tofu with toasted (or untoasted) wheat bread, fruits, a glass of fresh juice, a handful of nuts, and something else to make you full. ;-D
Makes about 5 servings.
