What did you have for breakfast and what does it reflect about you?

LadyZen profile image

I woke up feeling like I wish I didn't have to get up, and had this existential question on my mind. Like breakfast, I hope the responses help you power through your day.

I had an unfinished non-dairy yogurt and noodles. My meal shows that I'm not wasteful. It's an odd combination, but leftovers end up in my belly and not in the trash. It also shows how much I care about my family and how much they care about me. The yogurt was leftover from a sauce I made for my kids and the noodles were meal prepped by my parents for me and the kids.

What about you?

I usually do a protein drink in the mornings. Helped my high blood pressure get lowered. Other day it was 120/80. Awesome!! Hasn't been that low in a long time.

That is awesome! Your physical health is so important for your mental health and vice versa.

I just had Alyssa's Oatmeal Bite Snacks. All the oatmeal talk had me craving it.

Yum. I especially like cereal as a dessert.

You’re being frugal as well. I had a small bowl of leftover hash with the potato’s I had picked out of a stew I made. Needed to freeze some of the stew, that’s why I picked out the hundred potato’s. 🤪(I used a big spoon not my fingers 🤮) I had a craving for fat and carbs this morning.

I freeze leftovers too! It's a lot less sodium than the frozen TV dinners.

Oh! Homemade anytime over those prepackaged things. Hate to even call it food.

Scrambled duck eggs and a glass of kefir. Put on your Freudian hat and tell me ?????

Akin to a DJ spinning vinyl records ;) Let me know when you're on the request line

Plain yogurt, blueberries and almonds. Lots of nourishment to care for my body.

That's exactly what I had with my yogurt this morning! Kindred breakfast spirits.

Coconut yogurt, blackberries, shredded coconut, little honey and toasted pistachio. I love breakfast. It is truly my most important meal. I like interesting and variety. Definitely not tied to the same breakfast every day. That’s how I like my music and movies too.

I like coconut yogurt too. I use it as a dairy substitute when I can find it.

I like cashew better but I figured this was better with the shredded coconut. I do dairy too. Siggis is my favorite.

I like my yogurt and strawberries every morning...sometimes I throw in a banana and OJ and have a smoothie :) xx

Homemade smoothies are so good. Especially with fresh fruits and no added sugar.

Yum :) xx

It depends... are we talking about 1st breakfast, 2nd breakfast, Elevensies? I eat like a hobbit (my wife says I have food issues!). 1st breakfast is at 7am, usually a pita with turkey sausage, egg white and cheese. 2nd breakfast is a granola or protein bar and several copious handfuls of nuts or trail mix. Elevensies is an apple or banana and more nuts or trail mix. I think what all this reflects about me is that I'm a middle aged guy who has reached an uneasy truce with his metabolism. We've ceased hostilities, but neither one of us is truly happy about the state of things lol.

😆 It's a celebration of breakfast itself.

I had toast with peanut butter. Quick, easy to make, somewhat healthy, able to eat it with my dental issues. And needed a change from oatmeal.

One of my favorite things to eat.

I use peanut butter as a substitute for chocolate, since chocolate contains dairy sometimes.

I never thought about that. I don't have food allergies. I'm impressed how creative you are. Most of the time I would choose peanut butter over chocolate anyways.
