Care to Join Me for Breakfast?

Breakfast Blast


Go ahead, blame Bernar MacFadden and Norman W. Walker. It's all their fault that I often start the day with a quart and a half of carrot juice.  It is carrot-and-zucchini in the summer, or carrot-and-apple in autumn. Off season, I am more likely to have a breakfast concoction I lovingly call “slurry.” It, as my great-uncle would say, is “good for what ails you.”

Recipe for “Saul’s Sunrise Super Slurry” (trademark!):

One pint fruit juice (Orange juice from frozen concentrate works fine and is frequently on sale. Be sure to try pineapple juice if you can afford it.  Buy “unsweetened,” bearing in mind that they are all naturally, intensely sweet. And that’s just as well, given what you’re going to put into it.)

Three (or more) rounded tablespoons lecithin granules

One teaspoon vitamin C crystals (approximately 4,500 mg)

Mix together in a spacious stein and chug-a-lug.

I also take SUPPLEMENTS along with the Super Slurry, consisting of:

600 IU (International Units) vitamin E (as natural mixed tocopherols, containing 80% d-alpha tocopherol)

Niacin, 100 mg (more if I don’t “flush”; less if I do)

Three calcium-magnesium tablets (each supplying about 200 milligrams calcium and 100 mg magnesium, for a total of 600 mg calcium and 300 mg magnesium)

10,000 IU vitamin A as fish oil

Five or ten multiple digestive enzyme tablets.  (Pancreatin will do, although it is not vegetarian. Vegetarian enzyme sources, which usually include papaya and other fruits, cost more.

One high-potency multivitamin, ONE TABLET of which provides: 
Vitamin D: 400 IU
Thiamin (Vitamin B-1): 25 milligrams
Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2): 25 mg
Niacinamide (Vitamin B-3): 100 mg
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B-6): 25 mg
Folic acid: 400 micrograms
Vitamin B-12: 25 mcg
Biotin: 200 mcg
Pantothenic acid: 25 milligrams

It also includes these minerals:
Zinc: 15 milligrams
Selenium: 25 micrograms
Manganese: 4 milligrams
Chromium: 25 micrograms

(The multivitamin also contains moderate additional amounts of vitamins A, C, and E.)

If the multivitamin’s mineral quantities seem on the low side, bear in mind that I take this multiple vitamin again at lunch, and again at dinner, for total of THREE A DAY. I also take an additional 60 mg of zinc and 200 mcg of chromium at lunchtime. 

And, after I scarf all this down, I enjoy a “chaser” cupful of un-doctored fruit juice.

I must express a debt of gratitude to Dr. Jacobus Rinse, whose famous Rinse Formula is the basis for my modification presented above. 
( )There are strictly practical reasons for my revisions. The multiple vitamin provides ample amounts of B-vitamins; rather few people are willing to consume nutritional or brewers’ yeast first thing in the morning. Calcium powder is often hard to obtain, and most American diets are magnesium deficient. I consider lecithin to contain sufficient oils, including some monounsaturated fatty acids and plenty of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, such that trying to drink a mixture containing olive or flax seed oil is not necessary. Again, few people would tolerate this early in the day (or perhaps any other time). The enzyme tablets help your tummy to more easily handle the lecithin. If you reach “bowel tolerance” saturation of vitamin C with the full teaspoonful, just cut back until your personal comfort level is reached.

Additional note: I am well acquainted with the various brands of nutritional supplements on the market. Please do not conclude that I need an education in the merits of any particular company’s products simply because I decline to make brand recommendations. Just take what works.
