Is it true that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? What do you have for breakfast?
What do you have for breakfast?
Interesting that you asked, as I had answered another question today about morning coffee. I said I have my coffee with a cig as I don't eat breakfast.
Very honestly, I think the concept of breakfast has been one overly promoted by (and for) companies that profit from selling "breakfast" foods. I think children generally need a meal when they get up in the mornings, but other than this, I think human beings have a biological "meal clock" that lets them know when they need to eat. And this meal clock is rarely in sync with what a corporation or the FDA wants us to believe.
Coffee and a cig is not something \I've tried... Interesting point about corporations.
Beth, I can relate to your morning routine, minus the cig. I find that I don't get that hungry until around 11:00 or so, especially if I've had several cups of coffee (which I do daily).
Robert, yes the very idea of food early makes me uncomfortable. I've been this way since I was a teen, so I figure it is natural. I will eat honey in the morning, but that's all I'll have.
It's probably an important meal in so far as it's the first calorie intake of the day. The engine won't run if there's no petrol in it. Personally,I don't really feel like eating first thing in the morning. If I can get by on a cup of coffee until later in the morning then that's what I tend to do. A big fat breakfast might be OK on a weekend if there is nothing to do but loaf around. Eating anything in the morning puts me back to sleep and makes me feel generally lazy.
As I get older it seems my blood sugar varies more than when I was younger, but eating breakfast seems to help that. I eat a prepackaged oatmeal as often as I can. If I can add some fruit to it I try to do that. It's inexpensive and I feel lots better throughout the day.
I usually eat something stuffed in a warm flour tortilla for breakfast, so I can eat while I check email. This morning, it was refried beans, millet, avocado, and raw spinach. I don't generally keep traditional breakfast foods in the house.
Lots of fresh fruit smoothies, oatmeal or grits, boiled eggs leaving the yolks a lot of the time. Double fiber bread.

I eat breakfast, but I don't eat it until around noon or 1p.m. since I don't get up until 11:00 most days. But I'll still eat breakfast food for the first meal. Just because I like eggs and cereal and toast and such. So I guess my first meal of the day is, technically,...
