Good morning! I read an article recently that stated breakfast is in fact not the most important meal of the day, and if you are not hungry you should not eat it because forcing yourself to will only add extra calories to your diet. Now this information will probably be erroneous as soon as the next study comes out so take it with a grain of salt. But it got me thinking about eating habits and breakfast in general.

I have never been a breakfast eater, when I was growing up, I ate a bowl of Cheerios, Rice Krispies, or Corn Flakes for breakfast but only because my parents made me. On the weekends my dad would make us pancakes or waffles which I loved. But if we were on vacation I would always order spaghetti for breakfast. Apparently I was a carb lover from the time I was born!
As a child the “chocolate rice”diet was all the rage and my grandmother would eat rice with cocoa powder and artificial sweetener. I could not wait to grow up so that I could eat it too! I will tell you though that my version is not low cal.
As I grew older I wouldn’t eat anything for breakfast, because I simply wasn’t hungry. If I did eat breakfast I found that I would then just eat all day long. Instead I would have a cup of hot chocolate and then eat something later in the day.

A couple of years ago my hair started to fall out and my nails got very brittle so on the orders of my doctor I amped up my protein intake. I now have scrambled eggs, or hard boiled eggs and avocado on sprouted grain toast. Other times I make a breakfast sandwich with swiss cheese and an egg.
I would love to eat donuts for breakfast but that is probably not the most healthy choice.
I am trying to branch out. So I am curious, what do you eat for breakfast? Do you like a hot breakfast? Or are you a cold cereal fan? Do you eat oatmeal, Cream of Wheat or another hot cereal? Perhaps you are a smoothie lover, if so please share your favorite combination.Maybe you prefer fresh fruit and toast?
Thank you in advance for your breakfast tips. I am exited to learn some new and interesting meals from you guys.
Have a great day.
