Dr. Fuhrman's xenohormetic breakfast

Recommended Posts

This is an interesting vid by Dr. Fuhrman who prepars a pretty xenohormetic breakfast with some of his G-bombs: berries and seeds, plus he says he's going to take some leafy greens juice. I'm goign to try that out, but soaking the stuff overnight. Maybe some of you guys ara taking something similar regularly.

According to cronometer, it's 320 kcal, 15 g protein plus a good dose of micronutrients and, above all, lots of phytochemicals.

Mccoy, thanks for the video. 

 

I often eat something similar,  but I tend to go for nuts rather than seeds, mostly almonds, pistachios and walnuts, occasionally peanuts, cashews, pine nuts, and sunflower seeds.   Chia and hemp seeds are not so readily available in my neck of the woods, but I suppose I could  make an effort to seek them out I really wanted them.

 

I'm not sure about the pros/cons of emphasizing seeds vs nuts.   More protein and more omega 3  is not really so important to me, since I get plenty enough protein from legumes, vegetables, rye, buckwheat,  soy protein,  and small amounts of kefir and oily fish, and the latter supplies sufficient DHA/EPA.

 

 

Btw, I checked into the ingredients of some of the high-priced supplements Dr. Fuhrman mentioned in addition to his  "Men's Formula" and DHA formula.

 

"Ultra Cell Biotect" contains turmeric, Curcumin C3 extract, black turmeric extract, green tea extract, grape seed extract, cayenne pepper, and Bioperine black pepper extract.

"Immune Biotect" contains a mushroom concentrate blend, elderberry  extract, astragalus root extract, a berry blend, and a very small amount of beta glucans.

Sibiriak, I think that Dr. fuhrman's breakfast constitutes a useful hint to include a variety of seeds to enjoy the diversity in their xenhormetic compounds.

 

After that, I always try to include, if not everyday on a weekly basis, the trinity: flaxseeds+chiaseeds+hempseeds.

 

As a matter of fact, as I wrote in another thread, I always try to include significant seeds and nuts in my diet, in a framework of nutritional and xenohormetic diversity. Nuts & seeds have been one of my favourites for decades.

 

Seeds: 

  • flaxseeds+chiaseeds+hempseeds
  • sesame seeds +pumpkin seeds + sunflower seeds

Nuts:

  • walnuts
  • almonds
  • hazelnuts
  • brazilian nuts
  • pistachio nuts
  • cashew nuts
  • macadamia nuts
  • peanuts
  • pine nuts
  • pecan nuts
  • chestnuts
  • oak nuts

I'd also like to include occasionally some of the exotic varities like baru nuts from Brazil, which Amazon doesn't ship here though.

Of course, the costlier items I eat occasionally, the local varities I eat on a regular basis.
