"Full English Breakfast". Licensed under Public domain via Wikimedia Commons
There is an old English saying:
"Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper."
So do you breakfast like a king, with all the trimmings, or can you barely stomach a coffee first thing?
I love a full English breakfast but find it really difficult to eat it at breakfast time! When I was younger I used to leave the house for work having only had several mugs of tea.... nowadays I have to keep my blood sugar levels steady so I have to eat something first thing but it is a chore.....
The only time I don't eat breakfast is if I have to have a blood test which requires fasting. I can't function without breakfast. It is usually porridge with dried fruit added and perhaps a slice of multi grain toast with vegemite. Sometimes I have a boiled egg with toast. Occasionally I have a full cooked breakfast. I sit outside and watch birds in the garden while I have my coffee.
I try to, although if I'm in a hurry I'll sometimes skip it. I usually prefer a light breakfast of fruit or museli, though. If I eat too much heavy food first thing in the morning I tend to get drowsy.
YES! 3 crushed up Wheat-Bix, with a 1T of rolled oats, lots of diced dried fruit, & chopped nuts, On top of that: 1/2 a banana, strawberries,
& paw-paw. as well a 6 blueberries, if their in season, home made Greek style yogurt, Chai seeds, ,& truit juice on top of all that!. This is later followed by real coffee, & Vegemite on toast.
I do not know what everything is on that plate, I do like fried green tomatoes with my eggs and bacon and toast. To me that is a complete breakfast with coffee on a Sunday morning late so that it is a brunch. Other wise a good bowl of rolled oats with sunflower seeds, almonds, apples. cinnamon, nutmeg,and what ever else you can throw into the bowl does great for those cold morning with the snow up to our ears and it being -25 or -30 burrrrrr
No, I have to confess I don't and never have done. I am just not ready to eat first thing in the morning, although I do have liquids (water, coffee, fruit juice etc.) I am just not ready for a snack until about 1.p.m. I know they say breakfast sets you up for the day but it has never been on my horizon, and never seems to have done me any harm.
Some mornings I feel that I've eaten enough the night before so don't feel as though I want to eat. Some mornings it's cereal with fresh fruit and yoghurt, or fresh fruit shake, or 2 soft boiled eggs with toast, but usually Sundays it's bacon, eggs, hash brown and toast with champagne and orange juice eaten under the gazebo as the Sunday paper is read cover to cover.
