Sounds like a very healthy breakfast indeed. Too bad more women don't follow the same nutritional guidelines.

If I could add one food to the list it would be walnuts. They're extremely good for the cardiovascular system in general.
Just for you Sleestak...lol...


Yeap good ol' Brocolli. One of the best Cancer fighting foods on earth with so many different plant phytochemicals to destroy more different types of Cancer cells. In fact is the base of all my Salads and not lettuce or kale...

Here's some more info.....

harry o - what a great idea to start your salad with brocolli instead of lettuce. You know it's amazing the longer you eat vegetables and fruits the more you crave them. I just can't get enough anymore, and am so tired of the limited menu that restaurants provide for someone that wants some vegetables on their plate.

My salads start with lettuce as a base, then I add very thin slices of celery, carrotts, purple cabbage, raddishes, etc....attempting to get any array of colors into the mix. I frequently add walnuts, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoe, & avacado. A salad ain't a salad without some crunchies! Having tastebuds like mine, I'm just about ALWAYS disappointed with restaurant salads consisting of greens and unripe tomatoes....where's the crunchies?

happy salads.....Franco

I had to force myself to consume broccoli years ago when I found out that it was so good for the body and helped fight cancer ...especially raw. Now, it's just a regular part of my diet. I too have salads where the major ingredient is raw broccoli, however, I use spinach and/or cabbage as base as a substitute for lettuce.

Earniefan....i do like the fresh leaf vege'e i.e. Kale and Spinach but they wilt after several days in the fridge and i can't handle that so i by the 4 lbs bag of frozen brocolli (smiths grocery) and take 2 handfuls as my base then add or mix Cucumber, Red Onion, Avacado, Tomato, Carrots etc. I do not use Salad Dressing as trans fats and other additives i don't trust so i buy the little cans (8 oz) of Tomato Sauce and pour it on it and add Cayenne and Garlic and a teaspoon of Olive Oil and mix it all up and its like a Salad Dressing (just my prefer) and i do eat meat as i'm not a vegetarrian usually Skinless Chicken Breast or Wld Game lean meat when on sale (Wild Oats).

Dessert is Frozen Blueberries and Green Tea with Five Fish Oil softgels and a Multisupplement and thats an example of an meal for me.....
