steel-cut oatmeal. try various granolas/granola bars (after reading labels, as many're very high in fat.)

Gronolas/granola bars are out--they have sugar and sugar is not part of my daily routine. But thanks!

I like to mix cooked breakfast sausage into my hot corn meal then chill.
I've been doing grits instead of cornmeal--but have been eyeing the cornmeal....no meats, but have been thinking "homemade sausage or bacon" lately as a weelemd treat. No syrup--I don't do sugar in the a.m. other than the natural sugar that's in the berries/fruit--although I have a quart of maple syrup in the fridge...and I really don't do sugar anyway.

This morning I had a pear and some 5 year aged cheddar (Black Diamond).

With this cheese it doesn't take much..

wow, luvs!!! great to see you, kiddo. i hope all's well.

i'm on my way home from working all night, looking forward to making a favourite breakfast sammich: scrambled eggs tossed with minced shallots and julienned large ring pepperoni on a hard roll.

gotta stop at the bakery on the way home for rolls.
