Fruits for a healthy breakfast

Yes, you heard me right. For two weeks now I have been eating fruits only first thing in the morning and my favorites are oranges. Now is the season of oranges so it's the best time to feast on them.

I used to be a heavy breakfast eater. I have always been informed that rice in the morning is the best breakfast and I used to dwell on that thinking/belief until recently.

You see I've got a very sensitive stomach. Talk about hyper-acidity, heartburn, dyspepsia, constipation, flatulence, bloating... you name it, I got it. I loved orange but I couldn't enjoy a whole fruit without suffering from either heart-burn or acid reflux. It was very unpleasant. Thanks to my brother's email, now I can eat as much orange as I want and not feel acidic--I have to eat them on an empty stomach and that is when breaking my fast in the morning.

My sister-in-law used to brainstorm me about eating fruits for breakfast but I always argued that rice is the best because it keeps me going till lunch time. Talk about paradigm shift. Many people would not welcome the idea with just a flick of a finger.
