Hello all

I like a glass of milk in the morning, but have stopped drinking it recently due to discomfort. I have tried to replace milk with orange juice, but it’s just not near as filling and I am still evaluating if the OJ is causing discomfort (or just something I ate). My next idea has been maybe I should start drinking coffee. I have never really liked the taste of coffee a lot, but I could force myself to acquire a taste for it. I probably would have to drink it black though, yuck!

What is your breakfast beverage of choice?

I drink an "Ultra Mega" vitamin shake from GNC in the morning!

I drink Gatorade.  I am lactose intolerant, so no milk.  OJ really upsets my stomach because it is too acidic for me, and I don't like the taste of coffee, plus the caffiene itself would have me in the bathroom all day.  I like the vitamin waters, but they don't agree with me either.  The gatorade works well for me.

Usually I just drink water in the morning, but apple juice works for me, too.  I wouldn't try to "force" myself to drink coffee.  The caffiene and acidity could be rough on the system.

Personally I've always been a tea drinker, even as a small child. I used to love milk, but in the morning I always have a cup of tea. My daughter and I are both lactose intolerant. I'm good about getting my calcium in other ways, like cheese and such, but she isn't. The plain lactaid milk has an off taste to it. Its fine in tea or cereal, but not straight up. So I bought her the chocolate lactaid milk to try. It pretty much is the best chocolate milk on the planet. It is rich and filling. If you like milk and you like chocolate, that could be your morining drink of choice. She has converted all of her friends to it and they aren't lactose intolerant, just picky teenage girls! yeah

big glass of RO water with my probiotics upon waking. i also take my calcium supplement too which is powder and requires mixing with water. about a half an hour later it is time for breakfast, which sometimes is a smoothie. i got the recipe from the maker's diet. once you know the base you can tweak it and make all kinds of tasty concoctions. i've started making my own yogurt for it. much purer yogurt imho making it myself from raw milk cos it aint homogenized and i dont kill everything in an extended pasteurization process.

I start with a banana, and a glass of ice chips with cold water. OJ would put me in the hospital...as would apple juice or coffee. I sip on the ice water slowly. I find I always wake up with huge amount of 'crappy phlegm' in my throat from chronic sinusitis. If I don't drink something, even a small sip of coke, the stuff in my throat makes me gag and throw up....I'm nauseous enough without the added help from my throat. I can't drink coffee(usually only one a day) until later in the morning or noon.

Couldn't you replace the milk with Soy Milk? I know a lot of people enjoy the light vanilla flavor.

Personally, I don't drink coffee or tea, which is a shame because two of my best friends are obsessed with Starbucks!

I'm a big fan on Diet Coke, though I'm trying to cut back because it's not the greatest stuff. But I find it helps my neasua in the morning while I'm waiting for my food to cook, and when I had really bad migraines it would (albeit very slightly) help with those as well.

I always drink a cup of decaf coffee in the morning around 7 a.m. and then I have another cup of coffee at the office around 10 a.m.  Thank God coffee doesn't bother me, because I just love it!!!!!

Thanks all for your replies. I think I will try the chocolate lactaid milk and the soy milk.

soy milk is horrible, imho. i recommend every one to stay away from it and other "milk" substitutes. here is some info the makers of soy milk (and the health food industry) dont want you to know:

Soybeans have been cleverly disguised as health foods and wrongly championed by the health industry as the near perfect food. As tragic as it may sound, if you take a good look at the research you will find that soybeans really are not that good for you. For starters soybeans are the number one genetically modified (GMO) crop in America. Roundup Ready soybeans have been genetically modified to include the herbicide Roundup in the actual soybean itself. Soybeans are high in phytates, which prevent the absorption of minerals. Soybeans contain natural toxins called “anti-nutrients” which are essentially enzyme inhibitors. Many research studies have linked soybeans to a long list of problems, including impaired thyroid and immune system functions, reproductive disorders, impeding the sexual maturation of boys while accelerating that of girls, promotion of kidney stones, and even cancer and heart disease. Soy milk is actually a waste product from the tofu making process. Some one figured out that if this waste product is processed some more with added ingredients they can sell it as a milk substitute. Soybeans are marketed to you at Japanese restaurants as edamame.

The Asian culture, particularly the Japanese, can live just fine on soybeans since they have been doing so for generation upon generation whereas the rest of us have not. Plus they eat a much healthier diet that includes more vegetables, and they generally eat fermented versions of soy (tempeh, miso, natto, and tamari) which negates most if not all of the negative effects. The unfermented version of soy is the one to stay away from. Unfortunately it is the unfermented version you will find in tofu, soy milk, soy protein isolates, soy ice cream, soybean oil, and many, many other soy derivative food products.

eww nanners gatoraid????? All that yucky sugar and preservatives and all...

Yogurt smoothies are a much better option then getting yourself hooked on coffee (especially if it's caffeinated since caffeine is known to exacerbate IBD symptoms) no sense in opening that can of worms...

Here's a simple and healthy yogurt smoothie recipe that you can paly around with....

plain yogurt
big splash of pineapple juice (100% natural, no added sugar)
cut up banana

all in a food processor and done!

Use any 100% natural juice of your choice and fruit(s) of your choice, mix and match, change it up everyday so you don't get bored, more filling and healthier than milk...afterall yogurt has the lactose already broken down and has live bacterial cultures (good bacteria)...add a little powdered probiotic too for that little extra.

:)
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
