At sunrise, the sun's rays first shine on the treetops.
The fruits and nuts that grow on these trees are thus vitalized for nourishment
as morning foods--they are energetically aligned with the body's morning
nutritional needs. The nutrients available from the fruits and nuts that
receive the sun's first rays are just the right nutrients for our bodies
in the morning hours. Even the pH of our digestive system is correlated
with these foods.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and the almond is the most
important morning food. Almonds contain protein and all essential minerals
for the human body. Almond = "all world [al-mond], container
of the 144 elements." When almonds are the first thing in your stomach
after arising, they set the hydrochloric acid tolerance for the day, providing
all-day protein digestion. When almonds are eaten first, they are efficiently
digested since stomach acids are concentrated after the nightly fast. (If
you leave hydrochloric acid alone in your stomach, the saliva and hydrochloric
acid would become toxic.) Presoak organic raw almonds in distilled water
overnight for quick germinal action. When soaked, almonds act as protein
plus nitrogen.This protein helps your blood sugar stabilize throughout the
rest of the day. Eat one almond per ten pounds of bodyweight, more if you
want to gain weight and less if you want to lose weight.
Apples, peaches, plums, kiwi and bananas are among the morning fruits. Eating
soaked prunes for breakfast provides iron, potassium, and dietary fiber.
(Always soak dried fruits before eating.) In addition, kiwi fruit (or cherries,
papaya, mango, peach) provides the necessary vitamin C to assimilate the
iron from the prunes.
Citrus fruits do not combine well with other foods, with
one exception: almonds can be eaten with oranges.
Another "fruit" choice is the avocado. If have
avocado for breakfast, skip the other fruits--they don't combine well with
"Fruits are not night foods. They should be eaten
in the morning, because they are an eye-opener, a tonic, the eliminators
of waste that has been produced in your body during sleep." Dr.
John T. Richter
Remember that brown rice is a neutral food that can be
eaten all day. One idea for breakfast is brown rice containing pine nuts
and slices of avocado, olive, and umeboshi plum. Add a dash of cayenne to
jazz it up and promote salivary flow.
The chemistry of your blood also affects how your body metabolizes foods.
