OK shall we have the fiber talk? If you’re eating a plant based diet you know fiber is not a problem and you’re guts are feelin’ great all day ‘erry day? Am I right?

If you’re eatin’ meat or are a junk food vegetarian or vegan…let me let you in on a little breakfast magic:


Rip’s Big Bowl  from the Engine 2 Diet is almost always what I eat for breakfast. I watched The Engine 2 Diet on Netflicks (it was only like 34 minutes) and he talked about this breakfast and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Rip’s Big Bowl:

1/4 cup raw old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup Grape Nuts or Ezekiel brand equivalent

1/4 cup bite-size shredded wheat

1/4 cup Uncle Sam cereal

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal

2 tablespoons raisins (I like golden raisins)

 2 tablespoons walnuts

Then just add as much fruit as you’re belly tells you. I always add banana and some kind of berry. I also added dried cherries today which were OK.

Then add non dairy milk (no cholesterol!) and have at it!

All these ingredients were super easy to find and mostly pretty cheap.

*TIP do you self a favor and make a huge batch of premixed cereal so in the mornings you don’t have to open 7 containers to make it. I use a big round tupperware and just take a scoop of that every mornings; it’s so much easier.
