Coffee and toast most times.

Now it is “never.” DW instituted a diet of Atkins meal bars for breakfast four years ago. I don’t think I have had a bowl of cereal since. Prior to that I had cereal almost every morning. I miss cereal. Back then it was Honey Nut Cheerios.

I’d guess that it runs maybe three or four times per week and almost always with a half banana. Great way to help with a three day simple fasting time.

Rarely, but it’s much better as a midnight snack.

My wife and I make overnight oats, with probiotics and berries and spices, to address the gut brain connection.

I am a creature of habit. I eat bran flakes 3 days a week, shredded wheat 1 day, oatmeal 1 day, and a 3 egg omelet every Sunday. I also fast 1 day a week. I get up between 6:30 and 7:00 AM every day, pour a cup of coffee, put the dogs out, make my breakfast (including multigrain toast or bagel), take my breakfast and coffee to the table, grab a Bible, and read at least 3 chapters while eating my breakfast. I have done this for well over 20 years.

Almost every morning mini wheats or raisin bran. Cold weather it will be hot oat meal cooked on the stove with brown sugar and maple syrup.

It depends on the situation: at home, rarely; in the RV, every morning.

Bran muffin and/or fruit for breakfast 5 days per week and an omelet/eggs on the weekend with breakfast meat. That shrimp and grits recipe looks like a pretty good breakfast option though. Shrimp are in my favorites category and occasionally make it into the omelet.

Multi Grain Cheerios four days a week. Eggs, sausage, toast, the other three.

Cereal covers a wide area. We eat a lot of oatmeal, homemade granola, etc. Commercially prepared boxed cereals, not so much. However, we only have an eggs/meat breakfast once or twice a week.

Nothing beats a good “country girl” spouse. She makes sure we have a good hot breakfast eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns, toast or biscuits every day. But Sometimes will get a box of sugar smacks or pops as a snack. Just eat from the box while watching TV.

I shared your post with my wife and I don’t think the menu at the Proofs will change. She changed the subject to the laundry for some reason.

Never or very seldom for breakfast. I may have a bowl around 8-8:30 in the evening. Better than munching on junk food.

Not often but when I do usually a bowl of oatmeal or shredded wheat. Cereal just doesn’t seem to feel full an hour later. Rather have sausage and gravy with an egg over biscuits. Then I’m not needing anything until lunch.

An hour after eating cold cereal, I am starving. Hot Cereal, Bacon and Eggs, Pancakes etc are no problem.

About half the time I have puffed rice (no added sugar), blueberries or strawberries, and homemade yogurt.

I’m in the “never almost never” camp but to be fair I hardly ever eat breakfast.

Oatmeal nearly every day. Dry cereals, never.

Bran flakes for lunch

But I do eat Cheerios for lunch or dinner sometimes, usually with sliced bananas.
