What your breakfast like?


#41

Breakfast as we know it conflicts with how our bodies work in relation to the fake schedules we run on due to jobs. A good breakfast time for me is 9 . I wake up at 5 am and start work at 7. It means I will always eat at my desk bc my stomach doesn’t wake up until then.


#42

I’m the same. I can make myself eat when I get up after a shower, etc. (It was what I did all through school.) but it feels early, and I’m eating for the sake of planning on not eating most of the day. until afternoon/evening.

Always strikes me as odd when lab technicians respond to me saying “nope” with “you must be really hungry then!” after they ask if I’ve been fasting.

(Edit: Well, I say I’m the same, I guess I don’t know many of the specifics of which you may be speaking to, but on a basic level, my experience is similar.)


#43

Cup of coffee and lots of water before my run. 1 egg, 2 egg whites, and whole wheat toast post run. Coffee is meant to be enjoyed all day!


#44

Shout out to Grape Nuts, which is a rare cereal that doesn’t have a ton of sugar in it. Heck yeah.

I tend to be super methodical about my breakfast – always a bowl of cereal and a mug of coffee. Been trying to regulate my coffee intake more these days, so I try and time it so the second cup is 2 hours after the first.


#45

what is breakfast when you work nights?


#46

I eat nothing or drink a teensy bit of meal replacement. Breakfast is not particularly necessary and I don’t feel hungry anymore as I haven’t eaten breakfast in a couple years.


#47

I work nights and have breakfast-y type stuff as my first meal even though I usually get up at around 1pm on a workday: coffee, granola bar, plain greek yogurt with honey (if I have any, I’ll toss some almonds or cashews in the yogurt too)


#48

A glass of milk and a bowl of cereal, usually honey nut cheerios but lately just the cheapest stuff I can buy.

Maybe two bowls of cereal if I’m hungry enough.


#49

Usually wheat toast and coffee. Occasionally i’ll do biscuits and bacon. Possibly scramble some eggs if i have hot sauce lying around.

I was never big on cereal outside of Crispix and the occasional Cheerios. But it’s enjoyable now and again.


#50

I’m trying to diet at the moment and cut out all processed sugar.

So I’m on porridge from now on. Put some blueberries and strawberries in there, a dab of honey. I usually skipped on breakfast on the way to work, but already noticing a positive difference to my energy levels and general productivity.

Maybe at weekends, I might get up early and amble on down to the local bakery and pick up some freshly made croissants. Gently toast them, serve with marmalade and a mug of earl grey. Oh yes.


#51

As someone who is so bored with my current setup of cheese-ham-tomato-chicken-cheese toasted sandwich and who doesn’t like milk, y’all are giving me some damn good ideas, so just wanna say a very big thank you from my future morning stomach :yum:


#52

Bumping topic rather than making a duplicate.

I’m usually at the point where I’m just having a yogurt in the morning and then having a fairly substantial second and third meals. I should probably escalate that into a proper breakfast beforemy work starts :thinking:


#53

if I think about it I have A Single Piece Of Toast with a cup of tea. If I don’t I eat nothing and then wonder why I’m so grumpy by lunchtime.
Or I get up around lunchtime and just have lunch.
I used to eat cereal every morning but at some point I got really Weird about milk and so I haven’t eaten cereal in literal years. (Trying soy milk or whatever has been suggested, and I should, but I’m lazy.)


#54

Just a glass of juice. Maybe a toast if i’m free.


#55

I don’t really do hot breakfast or anything fancy. I used to eat basically shreddies (with banana) in summer and weatabix in winter, and these days I mostly keep up that kind of seasonal dichotomy.

I’ve switched, though, to granola and yoghurt in the summer months; sainsbury’s sell a nice, low sugar granola with dried strawberries and cherries that is perfect with a bit of yoghurt and banana. And in winter, it’s got to be porridge, with a bit of honey or jam. Occasionally, I’ll grab a croissant from down the road on a sunday.

Also coffee, it goes without saying. I have it pretty much first thing, alongside a big glass of water. I don’t want anything else first thing other than my lovely cup of stovetop espresso.

I’ll also confess to have tried Huel a few times; it actually makes for a pretty great breakfast? Rich, oaty, slight vanilla taste and very energising.


#56

I’ve never been a big breakfast guy. I heard the whole “it’s the most important meal of the day” thing when I was younger and for a while, I tried to eat a proper meal in the morning, and it would just make me sick. I would feel nauseous consistently around ~10-11am, to the point where I couldn’t focus at school or leave the house on weekends. It might have to do with my night owl sleep schedule, I dunno.

I’m still extremely cautious about eating Actual Breakfast, but I’ve really come to like something small late in the morning. This year I’ve gotten into having some cold brew and a granola or fruit bar most weekdays and that’s been nice.


#57

Today, I had a bowl of Pumpkin Spice flavored special K and it was great, you should all try it!


#58

When my schedule is normal and I’m able to get up on time I’ve found there is not much better than two scrambled eggs with a little bit of sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of homemade toast with a little peanut butter. That’s the perfect way to wake up.


#59

Wow. I feel like the complete opposite from everyone here. If I don’t eat a huge breakfast (say, a scramble of 1.5 potatoes, 3-5 eggs, spinach, and sausage, I’ll be starving the entire day, no matter how much I eat later in the day, and completely unable to focus.

Human bodies, man, they’re all different.

Been waking up at 2 PM the past week and eating a whole pasta dinner, so, uh… That.
