OK, this isn’t one of our greatest questions (and you can tell we wrote it when we were eating our breakfast…), but believe it or not, everyone has pretty strict preferences when it comes to breakfast. What are yours?
If you had it your way, do you prefer a big or small breakfast? Would you have some cereal for breakfast, or two eggs, bacon and toast? Oatmeal or a granola bar? Or pancakes and sausage?
Tell us in the poll below. Once you’ve done that, please leave a comment and tell us what you eat for breakfast. Don’t make us too hungry though…
More is more.
We usually do an every other day sort of breakfast. One morning peanut butter toast with fresh fruit on the side, or a homemade muffin. The next morning we have to have a big breakfast. Saturday mornings it’s Big Breakfast Time no matter what! I use to be a Chef and can make whatever my wife feels like wanting that morning. You know what they say? A happy wife is happy when someone else does the cooking 😉
My husband and I are both retired now and prefer a larger breakfast in the morning as we do more physical things such as gardening, flower beds, mowing, as well as exercises for our arthritis. We only eat twice a day, at 8:30 am and later around 5 pm. We might have raw veggies and dip midway between those times. We have lost weight and feel better. We do have pancakes, waffles, bacon and eggs/one piece of toast, alternating with oatmeal and fresh fruit. It was different when we had to be at work at 7 a.m. Then we brought a light breakfast that we could eat at our desk. A light lunch (soup/1/2 sandwich) and then later for dinner at 6:30 p.m. I don’t recommend skipping breakfast.
Love to have a big breakfast but settle for small.
I answered I prefer a big breakfast. That is true, that is my preference, but I don’t usually eat what I consider to be a big breakfast. Most days it’s a couple of buttermilk biscuits and couple of strips of bacon, or sausage patties. Never cereal unless it is a hot cereal. I sometimes fix a frittata hash browns, bacon or sausage, cheese and naturally eggs. a good cup of joe and I’m complete.
I’m on a “see food” diet. I see food and just have to eat it.
Actually, I usually have a light breakfast during the week. Typically, a cup or two of coffee and a coffee cake, sometimes a bowl of cereal. On the weekend, I usually have at least one big breakfast, pancakes, eggs, sausages or bacon, donuts, coffee, and OJ.
My breakfast is normally a bowl of Honeynut Cheerios with 2% milk. The morning of a travel day is usually a breakfast bar or something similar to avoid dirty dishes — do dishes night before travel.
Coffee when we first get up. Then I do a 1-egg omelet with green pepper, spinach and diced jalapenos, a piece of toast and fruit for breakfast. Hubby likes a fried egg, toast and fruit.
Again, the poll is missing a choice. I prefer a medium breakfast.
Depends; hard day – big, down the road day – light, hang around camp – brunch.
Breakfast for us is 3 egg &cheese omelet,small bowl of grits, glass (small) OJ, toast and coffee
Breakfast is our favorite meal! We eat homemade waffles topped with fresh fruit & whipped cream, or an egg & cheese omelet; bacon or sausage, toast w/real butter & organic preserves, fresh-brewed coffee.
“Big” is, of course, a relative term. My typical breakfast is something like two eggs,two pieces of bacon, half a bagel, and some juice. I considered that a small breakfast but who knows?
We eat a big Southern country breakfast. I make my biscuits and gravy from scratch. We have bacon and/or Goolsby’s sausage and scrambled eggs. But we hardly ever eat lunch.
My typical breakfast is two link sausages, two scrambled eggs, Fiber One and two cups of Joe. I only eat two meals a day. Breakfast is not big one.
At home we eat a small breakfast. When camping with a group of friends, We eat a big breakfast.
We hardly ever eat breakfast. If we could figure out a way to survive without eating at all, we would do it. Meals like the Jetson’s had in the cartoons would be perfect. Whenever we meet Foodies, we never know what to say to them.
Some people live to eat, others eat to live. I’m in the “eat to live” group.
Huevos Rancheros with green, eggs over medium and papitas, and a side of chorrizo or bacon depending on my mood! mm-mmm :))
Sounds good! What time do you want me to come for breakfast? And never mind the where?I’ll find some way to get there!
Since I’m already taking Statin’s for cholesterol, I have been able to help control the diabetes without increasing the cholesterol levels by eating fried eggs and sausage or bacon nearly every morning. I sometimes skip lunch and am not really starving when it is suppertime. I have shed about 20 pounds doing it this way over the last year. Gotta keep those carbohydrates as low as possible!
Most of the time it’s a relatively small meal – almond butter mixed with greek yogurt & a touch of apricot syrup, then Cheerios stirred in. My husband almost never eats breakfast. Once in a while we have a big egg, meat, potatoes breakfast.
