A bit of an unusual breakfat = leftovers from last night's dinner:
- Asian stir-fry veggies (carrot, bean sprouts, cabbage, onion, water chestnut)
- pollock
- basmati rice & quinoa
- sambal (chilly paste), fish stock cube, spicy peanut butter
plus 2 fried eggs added
and of course, the usual coffee w cocoa , now with green raisins added.. yes, that's yummy stuff!

Rating: not bad at all.

Explanation: I was unable to finish this meal last night, due to feeling incredibly stuffed. I'd taken 2 pieces of fruit and my fish oil caps about 45 mins prior to this meal, something I actually never do. I'd decided to not take fruit during the fasting in daytime and eat this , while preparing dinner (still influenced by that book Fit for Life from teh Diamonds ).
Going to find out whether that stuffed feeling was due to the fruit , the fish oil or the combination of both.

Yvana,
That's quite a bit of carbs (of any type) and protein together. The rice, quinoa, nuts, bean sprouts, and green raisins all could be implicated. That meal probably broke nearly every (semi-valid or not) food combining rule ever created...

As far as I understand and have experienced, fruit more than a half hour before protein works well. Fruit (and significant amounts of grains) with a meal doesn't work so well.

I'm finding that starchy Paleo-friendly root veggies combine okay with meat protein (not great, just okay).

Anyway, there's no way to be sure where things went wrong with a meal like that...

Forgot my fridge was empty this morning. Running late so I grabbed what I could...
Raisins
Unsalted, raw nuts
Coffee...lot's of it.

I wish there was a meat truck that drove around midtown selling beef and fish steaks for breakfast.

Garret I felt stuffed last night with the fruit & fish oil preceding that meal.
This morning I was OK, had the raisins with coffee after the meal.
Yet much later in the afternoon I was NOT OK, feeling very weak. Should've known better than having too many carbs early in the day. They always make me feel worse later. But I'd run out of veggies and wanted to save the usual omelette for later in the day, also because there wasn't enough coconut for 2 omelettes.

Oh well you live & learn.

Mostly I pick one source of starches , either rice or quinoa, but my SO has gone on a basmati rice loving streak and I'd taken some of his rice.
Water chestnuts aren't really nuts, but I don't really know what else they are. They are part of what's in the mixed bag of stir-fry veggies.
