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 the avocado.

"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. This is a simplified list of morning foods that are NOT beneficial for each blood type:
