  • What do you eat for breakfast??

    Hi everyone... I do my best to eat healthy or what I believe is healthy but recently upon learning more and more I think it's the opposite effect as I just discovered the oatmeal I'm eating has about 40% daily value of niacin in it. So not good I guess as I've just learned here that niacin is bad for rosacea. In addition to this I see the cereal I sometimes eat has about 30% daily value of niacin... again, not good. So, what is it that everyone here eats for a typical morning breakfast as I need to begin implementing some different foods?? Either that or purchase steel cut oats as opposed to instant ones. Also I'm recently learning that strawberries and blueberries are high in hystamine? This is extremely frustrating and I'm left wondering what can one eat!??


    Currently for breakfast I eat oatmeal prepared with milk, with a handful of cut up strawberries, and a handful of blueberries tossed in. I also mix in 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil as I can't taste it mixed in and it's a great way to get additional healthy fats.

    2 cups of coffee.

    BTW Niacin is not bad for rosacea per se. If you do not flush within minutes of eating your oatmeal - and note that most rosaceans do not react to the pretty small amounts of niacin in breakfast cereals - then you are not making your rosacea worse by eating it.

      That's a good point

        Acidic doesn't mean that foods are bad for you, it just means that you need to have a balance of alkaline foods in your diet. You need to eat both acidic and alkaline to maintain a proper PH in your body. Having a proper PH boosts your immune system and fights against free radicals. Blueberries and strawberries are very good for you and high in antioxidants. You should continue to eat them, unless you're having a reaction to them. They also fight against free radicals in your body. I believe that an 80/20 ratio is what helps to keep body's PH balanced.

            A big bowl of porridge oats soaked in milk and eaten as a cereal.

            Nothing on God's earth could induce me to suffer the horror of actual porridge.

            Ghastly stuff.

              Lists of supposed rosacea trigger foods are not especially helpful. They spread fears and doubts quite needlessly.

                I have oats and protein powder with some psyllium husk. I wouldn't get too caught up in the "banned" foods list. Just see what works for you!

                    Echoing this. I usually have cereal, toast with peanut butter, or eggs for breakfast, all of which have niacin. It doesn't make me flush and you have to remember that it's essential for your health so don't try to avoid it.

                      Note: for acne prones - peanut butter can aggravate and cause acne.

                        Any studies to confirm this? I eat peanut butter almost daily and my acne, if you could even call it that at this point, is extremely mild to non-existent and I used to be pretty damn acne prone.

                          Well i've been living in vegas for the last two weeks at the Encore hotel and casino - i've either been eating an organic egg ommellette or an organic salmon, drenched in butter.

                            Thanks everyone for the replies, I'm still eating my oatmeal and fruit, I don't notice any adverse affects aside from the initial during and after-post red from moving my mouth but that happens everytime I eat or move my mouth, smiling etc. I turn red, it doesn't really look like a flush, irritation or something from the movement, I'm not sure. Thanks again though!
