Anyone have real Breakfast's anymore ?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I used to love lounging around in the morning having bacon & two or three eggs, with melted cheese, ...Plus lots of toast, butter, maybe some fried tomatoes, Mustard, Tomato sauce, (ketchup) a few snags (sausages), and huge cups of coffee freshly brewed or a big cup of strong black tea and a few biscuits ( cookies ) to wash it all down..........switch on the radio, maybe read the sports section of the paper....all the time in the world.....Oh to be young & carefree...!

................And ..... then came.......Middle age........urgh...

And now my breakfasts are just a teeny weeny bowl of fruit, about two or three raisins, some watery yogurt, decaf coffee ( i'f I'm lucky )..and about two minutes to look over the paper, before the sports pages are used to line the Kitchen bin........

Is this what a good breakfast has been reduced too ?

Always.

Poached eggs on toast, spinach; goat's cheese; paté; rooibos or jasmine tea; avocado. Make a dressing every time.

I've been known to fry up the previous evening's polenta and put a poached egg on top. Organic eggs every, every time. They just taste better and they're so worth the expense.

Most important meal of the day. Can't work without it now. I just don't do cereal any more if I can help it.

Even if I'm in a dash I do toast and peanut butter of the organic kind.

I am a breakfast snob.

The above post makes me sound like a complete wanker, I know.

But it's true.

You're right, that does make you sound like a wanker. A gay wanker no less. How long does it take you to cook that shtuffs?

It is 7:20 now and I am already at work with no breakfast as always. Just sucking down a gallon of black coffee. Never eat breakfast. Who has time for that? Maybe if I were more diligent I would keep some Wheat Chex handy so that I could shovel it down straight out the box while driving to work.

Same here. No time for breakfast

I guess I'd rather get some extra sleep than get up early and eat something. I usually grab a bananna or an apple though. Does that count?

Never that. Mostly an americano or a skimmed latte ... alternatively a cappuccino or a double espresso... and some fruit in summer. Never that crap.

I should add that I love beans for breakfast, you just can't find then very easily in the states. Cook at home? Hell no. I can barely make the train that's a two minute walk from my home.

Well, I'd have eggs, but, you shouldn't eat more that 3 a week.
I'd have grits, but, that's just too country...
I'd have bacon, but, to unhealthy
I'd have toast, but I pass since I'd only schlop it with butter jelly, or something else excessive
Pancakes & waffles, see toast

So, I eat Raisin Bran with 2% milk every morning. When I run out of milk, I have Instant Oatmeal.

Raisin Bran is a favorite of mine. But I use 1% milk. And I have a very important question for you - Post or Kelloggs? And careful how you answer...

I look out over the valley and think about how big a girl ColanderOfDeath really is.

I always try to eat something. I'm no gay wanker though.

Oatmeal+Real Coffee
or
Yogurt w/ granola + Real Coffee


I also put half the coffee in a thermos and take it to work. It's great having your own coffee to drink.

Well it is hard to say how much I would weigh if I were a girl. But if you want to go part way there I weigh about 210 if you exclude the weight of my Monstrous Cock. If you like, I can send you spam to announce the enormity of my infamous Monstrous Cock and a variety of links showing where it can be seen on the internet. You'll note however that I only wield it on behalf of Hot and Horny Blonde Sluts who are begging to be ravaged rather than just using it to indulge the common laywoman.

Naturally you will have to convert my weight into metric. Although, I would weigh even more had I eaten breakfast.

I'm pretty sure htat you can't see me from over there. Even if you had 100,000/20 vision, there is that whole curvature of the Earth thing plus the Cascades would be in the way too. Although if you can see me in spite of all that maybe you should let Guy know, your superhero vision could be a useful intelligence too for his new EU- er strike that- European Coalition of the Willing.

Anyway, back to breakfast. Uh, I like toast even if I don't ever eat it. And Raisin English Muffins.

I feel I should point out that this is a habit I picked up from my girlfriend, and before we hooked up I was addicted to omelettes and porridge.

But I am still a gay wanker nonetheless for showing off.

Kellogg's for two reasons:
1. Kellogg's contributes to UPromise.
2. Kellogg's Raisin Bran has the most fiber, the only real reason I eat it.

BTW, I haven't tried 1% milk before, is it much difference from 2%? I envision it tasting like water.

Usually just coffee, cream, and sugar--the breakfast of champions! When I remember to, and if I wake up in time, I'll have a bowl of Total with Raisins.

On Saturday, whatever's leftover from the previous night, like cold pizza.

Occasionally (Sundays only), I'll have a more tradional heart-stopper brunch, which can consist of bacon, eggs, pancakes, sausages, hash browns, etc.

I'm in college still so I'm usually late for class so I have no breakfast, but on the weekends I usually have bagels and beer.

I do love breakfast though, blueberry pancakes are the best breakfast food ever!

Cheers,
Dan

The only time I really get to eat a proper breakfast is if I stay up late enough for the eateries to open (around 6). Then it's 3 scrambled eggs with buttery toast, buttery fried potatoes and greasy bacon. Wash it all down with loads of black coffee and a few morning smokes. Yum.

I'll skip lunch and dinner on the weekdays and go straight for a pint of HaagenDaz, Ben&Jerry's or Godiva before midnight. 2 pints per night on the weekends.

I joined my local gym about 5 weeks ago, and as part of the initial assesment were questions about my diet. At the time I wouldnt normally have breakfast (I never used to feel like having anything) and would happily last till lunch.

However, the fitness freak at the gym told me I should get up and have something, even if its just a bit of toast - because it gets your motabolism going.

The first time I had breakkie (cerial & toast & cuppa), I felt considerably more hungry at lunch time and figured that the instructor was right - my body had been working away at those fat cells for an extra few hours than normal.

You have passed the test. You may diminish and go into the west.

I don't think there's much of a difference between 1% and 2%. Try it for a couple of gallons. Less calories, same calcium.

I just loved a cigarette after a greasy yet nurishing breakfast with plenty of coffee. One of the only smoking situations I miss. But hey, I do belong to the other side now.

i usually now have cereal when it's in the houze ("Oh's" i think its called). if cereal lacks, then i make myself several pieces of french toast, a couple of english muffins and some ice tea. if, perchance, i have french toast too many days in a row, i'll instead have an (plain) omlette or scrambled eggs. i tend not to smoke with breakfast, cuz the family aint too keen on that; so i smoke a couple on my way to the train.

Also, too many of you onks missed out on the true Breakfast of Champions, as advertised on SNL: little chocolate donuts. "They've been on my training table since I was a kid," said Gold Medal Olympian, John Belushi, as he smokes a cigarette.
