The Quick Magical Breakfast Blaster on Oprah by Dr. OZ

Recommended Posts

1 scoop (1/3cup) soy protein

1/2 tbsp. flaxseed oil

1/4 cup frozen blueberries

1/2 large bananas (or any other fruit)

1/2 tbsp. apple juice concentrate or honey

1 tsp. Psyllium seed husks

 

*Makes 2 servings

 

My question: Do I count any points for the protein? I am assuming that I do not for the flaxseed oil nor for the Psyllium seed husks. Just not sure about the protein. The salesperson talked me into gettting the whey protein over the soy protein. I am going to make this in the mornings since he said that it is very filling and keeps you full for a long time. I plan to add 1 cup milk and replase the 1/2 tbsp of apple juice concentrate or honey with 1 tbsp. of ff/sf pudding mix.

 

What do you all think about that?

ARe you doing flex or core? I don't know the core rules.

 

For flex - you count all the points.

1 scoop of protein powder = 50 calories and 0.5 fat - but look at the NI on your package

1 1/2 teaspoon flaxseed oil (which is 1/2 tablespoon) = 60 - 6.8 fat

then your berries, milk, pudding, etc.

Psyllium seeds - i found 20 calories for a tablespoon - with 5 gm fiber ... so that would be 0 points.

 

If you're Core - a corebie will come along soon

Oh my goodness. It would be 6.5 pts for this!!! That is if I have calculated correctly.

 

1.protein 1 scoop 90 calories 2 fat = 2 pts

2.flaxseed oil 1 tsp 40 calories 4.5 fat= 1pt

3.psyllium husk 1.5 tbsp (recipe doesn't call for this much)seed

20 calories5 fiber= 0 pts

4. 1 cup ff milk 2pts.

5. 1/2 cup frozen fruit 1/2 pt

6. 1/2 banana 1/2 pt.

7. 1/2 tbsp. honey 1/2 pt

Total points=6.5

 

Did I do this correctly?

Can the flaxseed oil be counted towards 1 serving of good oil for me?

 

OH!! I am doing flex.

 

Thanks in advance for the help!!

The 1/2 banana would be 1 point - one medium banana is 2 points for the entire thing.

 

1/2 tablespoon of the oil would = 1 1/2 teaspoon - if you just used 1 teaspoon tho your info would be right. Flaxseed oil IS one of the healthy oils! The healthy oils include olive, canola, sunflower, safflower or flaxseed.

 

The recipe said it made 2 servings - so you'd halve the total points unless you drank the whole thing.

Thank you BarbA. I made it and had only this for my breakfast. I will see if it keeps me full until my lunch, which is 11:30. I hope so. It gave me protein (from whey protein), fruit, milk and good oil. I exercised 47 minutes (3 mile WATP). I usually get hungry around 10:50am. Hopefully, this will keep me full like Dr. OZ (on Oprah) said.

UPDATE: I did NOT get hungry before lunch, and I normally do. The taste is okay. Nothing spectacular. It is NOT nasty though. Just nothing to brag about. It will be a keeper for me. Try it and let me know what you think.

If you're looking for another quick breakfast that keeps you full till lunch - I have one.

 

I found it on the breakfast forum here.

 

Chocolate Peanut-Butter Oatmeal.

 

Here is what I use:

 

1 teaspoon fat reduced peanut butter

2 teaspoon hersey chocolate syrup

1/2 cup real oatmeal - I bought mine at a bulk store.

 

I take mine to work so here is how I prepare it:

 

In a 1 cup plastic container I put the peanut butter, syrup then the oats, put the lid on it and take to work. (no mixing at this point)

 

At work I add 1/2 cup water and put it in the mircowave for 50 seconds with no lid on. ( this is important cause with a lid and set for 1 min - it expolds all over the microwave - very yucky mess to clean up!- trust me - I did it twice! :mad: )

 

Then mix and enjoy.

 

I usually have a cup of milk with this and take a few spoonfuls of my milk and add it to the oatmeal to cool it off.

 

total points (with out milk): 4. With a cup of skim/1% milk: 6

 

It's fast easy - it's very tasty - I eat mine around 8:00 am and I don't have lunch till 12:00-12:15 - I am nowhere near starving at lunch.

 

This meal gives you: a little protein, fat, carbs (if you drink a cup of milk, there is your dairy as well.)

MeAgain..yes, I just put everything in a blender. I add 1 cup of ff milk to this to help me get a milk serving in..as well as some ice.

 

 

 

Thanks for the additional recipe. I'll have to give that a try.

You could add a bit of SF DaVinci or Torani syrups to bump up the flavor without adding calories.
