Breakfast of Champions: What To Eat in the Morning

Article At A Glance:
• Breakfast is crucial for everyone, but it is especially important for children with autism who have compromised immune systems.
• Typical and even seemingly healthy breakfast foods can cause inflammation, blood sugar spikes, and energy slumps.
• Foods high in protein and good fats help kids feel full, have energy, and heal their gut.

We've heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal, as it is meant to fuel us and create a productive start to our day. So what should breakfast look like for a child who has autism? If we understand that the key to helping these kids lies in healing the gut (feeding good bacteria while starving the bad), what types of food should they be consuming?

First, let's begin by analyzing typical American breakfast foods. These can include orange juice, toast, cereal, and milk. The truth is that these combination of foods are often packed with sugar (orange juice and cereal in particular) that spike blood glucose levels, cause inflammation, and then lead to an energy crash a few hours later.

Sometime later, the American breakfast began to evolve into something seemingly healthier with foods like whole-grain bagels, oatmeal, a bowl of fruit, and skim milk. While these foods are marketed to appear more nutritious, unfortunately they cause many of the same issues as the typical diet.

The R2 Diet

So what's a better way to fuel our kids' bodies? I developed the R2 diet, which includes foods like eggs, avocado, uncured pastured bacon, and R2 pancakes (the recipe is available in the members' section). These foods feed the brain, keep us full longer, and feed the good gut bacteria.

Making important changes like these in your family's diet can make a significant difference in your child's behavior.

About the Founder

My name is Marty Orefice, founder of All-Star Nutrition. After experiencing a radical transformation with my son, I have dedicated my life to helping millions of children reach their full potential through the power of supplements and nutrition.

We don’t listen to so-called experts that tell us there’s nothing we can do to help our kids. We are parents who never give up. We are motivated by helping our kids reach their potential and will do whatever it takes to help them.

Because we’re fighting against large food and chemical companies, we do things differently. We do things smarter. We pull techniques from other industries and disciplines. We sacrifice. We use nutrition and supplements to provide the foundation our children need to reach their potential. We do the hard things that others aren’t willing to do.

If you talk with your doctor or look in traditional textbooks, they’d tell you what we’re doing is impossible. Yet it’s happening. Every Single Day.

I invite you to join the movement and help our children reach their full potential.

Will you be next?
