CWS has been setting a good example of how to eat breakfast, and news items now seem to be taking up the banner of the importance of a good breakfast. I enjoy the simplicity of a bowl of cereal but have been trying to put more of my day's worth of calories in the morning meal. It's really not that hard with a microwave to do fresh or leftovers first thing in the day, and I'm trying to readjust my habits. When I read CWS posts about the greens and brown rice I just know how healthful they are, no matter what time of day. Oh, yes, and the farm-fresh eggs.

Thanks. I've been trying to not only load up on the calories, but also get high-quality protein on board to start my day, greens, and some carbs. Quick-cook grits are my "don't have time to do barley/rice/spelt" go-to carb. I have to eat those farm-fresh eggs. The few times I've skipped breakfast, I've been starving by 10:00 a.m. and tired by mid-morning.

Last month or so I've been having mostly toasted "everything" bagel, lox, cream cheese and sliced onions. I look forward to it when I wake up my morning; I have to soak up my coffee then OJ before I feel like eating.

Too bad I'm out of lox. Looks like it's back to egg and cheese burrito for me tomorrow. Who knows? Maybe I'll switch back to that every day...

Or maybe I'll make a quiche. Depends on if my mushrooms are useable. I've had 'em for a couple weeks, stored in my patented paper bag method (it really works) and instead of getting yucky they just progressively dry out. I had a peek and they look like they might be good. I grabbed a piece of puff pastry dough out of the freezer to be prepared. I don't measure stuff for mini-quiches. I just nuke the veggies, press the dough into a custard dish, mix up egg, cream, cheese, maybe some salad croutons, then bake it. It always comes out good.

So I guess I don't know WTH I'm having tomorrow but it ain't gonna be lox.
I seem to eat a lot of poached eggs, greens, and whole grains.

I try to avoid the "cereal dust" though.

Today I had some wonderful sweet bread for breakfast. Dh was up late baking for a breakfast catering this morning. Woke up to the wonderful smells of fresh banana bread & a wonderfully dense jewish sour cream coffee cake with a struesel filling & topping. Very good with a large cup of coffee & cream.

This morning, DH fried up some maple breakfast sausage links. I had two of those with a toasted English muffin with butter and FROG jam.
