Have You Had Your Breakfast?

Well, have you?

Since I started on my health kick this year, breakfast has become an increasingly vital meal. Prior, I used to get by on a piece of toast and coffee, followed by a more substantial meal early afternoon.

I can't imagine going back - I love my breakfast! I don't eat straight away - I like to move about first, maybe do some brief exercise straight out of the sack before eating. Normally it's a decent sized bowl of muesli with skim milk and whey protein powder, with a side of baked beans and deli chicken slices. It really sets me up for the whole day. I tend to graze for the rest with a more substantial meal again in the evening.

The people I know that don't have breakfast all seem to lack a certain zip and are lethargic to varying degrees - especially those who swear by the "coffee and fag" start to the day.

So are you a stalwart of breaking the overnight fast first thing or is it a rarity for you to eat before noon?

Rarity to eat before noon. I tried to get into the habit of eating breakfast, and made myself do it for over a year. I just felt sick, or ate more throughout the day. It didn't add energy for me even though I tried a variety of foods. If I eat breakfast on any given day, it's either something like a toast or english muffin, or else oatmeal. I do find that I really like oatmeal.

But I don't like breakfast.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

Breakfast is something I try not to miss, no matter how small, and is something I try to make a big deal of. For most days, a bowl of cereal and a big mug of tea is usually enough for me, although for certain special occasions I have gone "Full English."

I always eat breakfast. Could be a protein and carb on the run (like a spoonful of almond butter before I walk out the door and a piece of fruit in the car), or leftovers from the previous night's dinner, or plain Greek yogurt w/ raisins and cinnamon.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I really wish I had more time to cook a real breakfast on work days. I cook a filling breakfast on weekends but during the week I just don't have the time for anything that I can't eat on the go.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I seldom eat breakfast. If I'm hungry in the morning, I'll have a bagel and jam, or a piece of fruit and a glass of milk, or some of whatever leftovers are in the fridge.

But then, my eating habits have never been very regular. Ditto my sleeping habits and bowel habits.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I can't start the day without breakfast: I usually wake up quite hungry (jokes may commence... now).

Italian breakfast is usually light and sweet: a croissant with cream or chocolate, a glass of juice, and a cup of espresso. I usually have a second breakfast later in the morning. I must have some hobbit heritage, I guess. (The height seems to support that notion.)

The idea of starting the day with some combination of sausages, eggs, vegetable and beans is completely alien to me. Not to mention porridge. I mean, porridge.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I have one or two eggs for breakfast every day. Hardboiled or on a tortilla with habanero sauce. I can't eat any kind of sugary carbs in the morning, it makes me sick for hours. I could never eat pancakes, it would wipe me out.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I eat breakfast right away. I feel like I can't really wake up without it.

I usually just have cereal or toast, or maybe a muffin.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I eat half an hour after I get up, since I need to wait for medicine. I can't stand not eating. I can just feel the stomach acid churning in my gut. I eat whatever. Mostly toast or cereal or granola bars, if I'm driving.

If I get up around lunchtime I usually just eat lunch. So ramen, hot pockets, whatever someone else made for lunch, or cereal if I'm lazy. I can't eat like that early in the mornings for some reason, though.

I always try to eat something for breakfast, even if it's just some toast or a bagel because I don't have much time.

I'm the same, I never eat breakfast. I have a cup of back coffee for the caffeine and a lot of water in the morning, but even though I do an hour of cardio every morning I feel sick if I eat before noon. If I'm feeling really zapped after my morning workout and just need some something, I'll put some milk in my coffee.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I forgot to add that like kolibri, I have to wait in the morning because of medicine. Except I keep it to at least an hour because I've had issues absorbing the medicine in the past with the 30 minute guideline. It's not that big a deal because I don't like eating breakfast, but on the days that I want to I usually end up going without because I'll be out the door by then.

Re: Have You Had Your Breakfast?

I'm too tired for breakfast when I get up (between 5 and 7 am). I have breakfast at my office, around 8 or 9. Usually herbal tea or fruit juice, whole meal or rye bread with cheese or ham and lettuce, a slice of cheesecake or a cookie. And I always have a bowl of grapes, radishes, carrots or other not-messy treats on my desk.

I do breakfast in the weekends: rolls or whole meal toast, jam, cheese, sausage or smoked ham, a boiled egg or two and tea. Sometimes muesli. In Winter occasionally an English breakfast (bacon, eggs, mushrooms, baked tomato, toast). Or just the leftovers from yesterday's supper.
