honey and cereal: from Jo on 2006-06-10

Hi, I've been reading a book about food combining and am about to give it a try but am concerned about breakfast. The book mentions honeyed porridge but does not go into further details. Now as I understand it, honey and cereal are bad combinations. It's ok to eat porridge or oatmeal for breakfast but is there anything anyone can suggest to put on it or must I eat it on it's own. what do you have for breakfasts? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. The book is very good but breakfasts are not really featured short of eggs or fruit. I don't really kike eggs and would fruit fill me up?
Thank you for reading, any help would be appreciated.

Try maple syrup and cinnamon on your porridge it's very nice

Hello There

I know sugar should be cut out and I guess that includes honey but I dont think a little honey to sweeten your porridge would hurt. Or have you thought about adding dates? They would sweeten the porridge and they are appropriate for a starch meal.

I love warm stewed apple sweetened with fruit juice and sliced preserved ginger for my breakfast. With a slice of wholemeal bread it makes a filling breakfast
