​helped​ ​significantly​ ​with​...digestive​ ​problems​ ​and​ ​constipation

George: The advantage of it for me was that it was easy to swallow, easy to digest, and helped significantly with one of the elements of Parkinson's that's not uncommon, which is digestive problems and constipation. So, we tried the packages; we found them tasty, but more then that we found them helpful.​

Helen: It really, really is easy for me to take the little package, cut the cellophane, pour it into my crock pot, turn it on low and the next morning we have a wonderful dish. Even if it's late at night and George says, "Gee are we cooking congee tonight?" It takes me about a minute and a half and we're cooking congee that night.

Easy to digest and feels really nourishing

I wasn't too excited about eating a porridge for breakfast. I did not think it would sustain me for the morning. But it takes away all the hassle of figuring out what to make in the morning. It's also really easy to digest and feels really nourishing. This isn't just a quick fix. It's a healing substance that helps me start out on the right foot every morning. I am SO grateful that I found out about this "breakfast cure." It really has been a blessing in my life.

Karen Taylor, L.Ac.

Hi, I'm Karen Taylor, a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist specializing in dietary and nutritional counseling using Asian medicine. I've worked with thousands of patients over the past 23 years. What single nugget of wisdom helped the most people? Congee for breakfast. I founded The Breakfast Cure because I'm passionate about sharing the benefits of congee with as many people as possible. 

What's Congee? It's a traditional Asian rice porridge that's been used for centuries to heal a wide variety of digestive complaints such as constipation, stomach pain, cramping, poor digestion and absorption. This ancient healing recipe inspired me to create congee flavors that agree with the Western tastes and address the common health complaints of my patients and loved ones.

I wasn't always a congee advocate. Even though I've eaten congee for 25 years and always believed it to be a cornerstone of my excellent health, it wasn't until my own mother died from complications of constipation that I realized how important this information truly is. I am certain this warm, moist breakfast would have prevented the premature end to her brilliant life.

I'm sharing the healing benefits of congee with you because I've witnessed the easy, comforting, gentle cleansing and healing it offers. In our fast paced, over-processed world, so many people suffer from digestive distress. Congee is a slow-cooked comfort food without compare. Congee brings a little ease into everyday mornings.

I'm excited to share with you both how to make congee and why it's so healing for digestion. I also practice acupuncture in Eugene, Oregon. 

Rise and shine,


Love your breakfast.
