What do you eat for breakfast?
H is one of those rare people that truly eats to live. Sure, he has his favorites (mostly meat-based dishes), and will usually try anything I make, but 90% of the time he eats because he’s hungry or knows his body needs food. I, on the other hand, am not like that at all. I wouldn’t say I live to eat, but I definitely love food. On average, I’d say I spend at least 1/3 of my day either thinking, reading, planning, making or eating food. I go to bed thinking about breakfast, and plan dinner while eating lunch. Needless to say, I am not one of those people who can forget to eat. I just don’t understand those who can.
But lately I’ve hit a wall. I’m bored, especially with breakfast. While I was following the plan described here, I settled into a tried and true breakfast of two hard-boiled eggs and ½ of a banana with almond butter. It wasn’t the most exciting breakfast but I could carry it with me to work (I eat my breakfast while checking my emails and settling in for the day) and it covered most food groups –especially protein. Protein is my challenge. I have to push to meet my daily minimum.
So, I need help. During the week, what do you bring for breakfast? I’ve tried oatmeal, and while I love it, I need more variety. Weekends are fine – you can usually find me making French toast or oatmeal pancakes – but the weekdays are harder. So leave some ideas for me, and I will pick my favorite. The winner will be prepared and written about in the coming weeks.
