What’s for breakfast?

Stephanie

Do you eat breakfast? They say it’s the most important meal of the day for a million reasons but I don’t like eating soon after I wake up. In fact, I often forget to eat until later in the day when I start to get woozy – and I’m sure that’s not good at all. When I do eat early in the day, it’s not usually “breakfast” type foods beyond a cheese omelet or scrambled eggs with katsup.

I know I could definitely benefit from eating on a more regular schedule so perhaps you can help motivate me by telling me about your most favorite breakfast dishes. Mine would be Mom’s savory French toast: (eggy bread)  stale white bread dipped into a mixture of egg and milk, fried in butter till crispy and brown. (though still a little squishy inside) Put that syrup and powdered sugar away – just salt on top thankyouverymuch. I can easily eat 6 pieces so I only make it once or twice a year.

    First, congrats on that!

    I try to eat a light breakfast. Either an apple or English muffin with a single egg on it.

    Though I can be found at a diner now and then putting away a Western omelet with home fries. ;-)

  3. I’ve recently learned through my bariatric educator, that we as a people should be eating something every 2.5 hours! I am an overweight person, and as part of our canadian health coverage, they have a government sponsored weight loss clinic. They’ve taught me the benefits of different foods, when to stop eating (an hour before bed, no matter if it’s 10 pm, or 2 am!) and that we should eat that often, to keep our metabolisms constantly moving, and not making the body think it’s starving. I’m already down 25 pounds in 4 months! It’s not about the weight loss though, but the learning HOW to eat. Sorry to ramble, but I’m feling SO healthy now.
