Healing Cancer with Food: Breakfast
The first meal of the day is very important since this is when your body is most acidic. Starting your day with an alkaline breakfast is critical in helping your body create the perfect environment for healing.
Below are some suggested recipes to get you started. Feel free to adjust the recipes to your taste preferences. Please keep checking our website as we are continually adding new recipes and will be including notations on how to make the dish suitable for a low glycemic alkaline diet when appropriate.
12 oz. of lemon water – squeeze ½ large lemon or one small lemon into 12 oz of water. Lemon water is a powerful alkaline drink and the perfect way to start the day.
Oatmeal – in a medium sauce pad add 1 cup of uncooked rolled oats and 2 cups of unsweetened soy or almond milk or water. Oatmeal is one of the few starches this diet allows. Although adding sugar of any kind is discouraged, to add flavor, try:
- ¼ cup of chopped raw almonds, sunflower seeds and/or pumpkin seeds
- 1 Tbsp. raw Hemp seed
- ¼ cup of dried unsweetened coconut flakes
- Cinnamon to taste
If you are desperate for added sugar, you may add 3 dates chopped small or made into a paste using the blender by adding small amounts of water until paste-like consistency. Dates, although high in sugar, are easily absorbed and assimilated into energy in your body. Although it is preferred that you do not consume sugar because it supports inflammation and tumor growth in addition to an acid environment, until your taste buds acclimate, a little first thing in the morning would be okay. But try to wean yourself off of sugar as soon as you can.
Alkaline granola – slightly toasting raw oats gives them a nutty flavor and crunchy texture. Spread 1 cup of raw oatmeal on a baking sheet and bake at 350º until lightly brown. Add the ingredients from the Oatmeal list and serve in a bowl with unsweetened soy or almond milk.
Tofu Scramble – if you prefer something savory for breakfast, try the alkaline version of our Tofu Scramble by omitting the mushrooms and tomatoes.
