It's funny you bring this up because breakfast is a sticking point for me. Like you, Lynne, if I'm in a rush going to work its usually oatmeal or toast and that's fine. But just starches/sugars don't always hit the spot. (Even before I was diagnosed it seemed like sugar and high glycemic starches would immediately make my symptoms worse. Even fruit is tricky for me first thing in the morning.) From what I've learned it seems like the traditional dessert-ish breakfasts we have in America are not normal for the rest of the world. I love the idea of Japanese breakfast--miso soup, fish, natto, steamed rice, nori, and pickled vegetables. Maybe some of the British OMSers can confirm the existence of the "full English"--that in addition to forbidden eggs, etc. also has fish, baked beans, tomatoes, and mushrooms. I remember eating callaloo (greens) for breakfast in Jamaica and am curious about kidgeree from India.
Every once in a while I manage to eat steamed greens and grains seasoned with a small amount of herring or smoked salmon, sauteed onions, lemon or vinegar and herbs. I feel amazing when I eat this way, but am usually up to my old convenient habits.
I second the call for awesome OMS breakfast ideas, especially savory ones. I'm sure this well traveled crowd has some favorites.
