I had to be at the commercial kitchen today to supervise the packing of the ingredients for tomorrow's meals, so I brought in a dozen eggs and some potatoes. One of the employees is from Cuba and has lived in Spain. He made a delicious "tortilla" out of a dozen of the Girls' eggs, potatoes, and some onions. I could not convince him to add wild leeks/ramps or fresh shitake mushrooms. What surprised me is that he served it with mayo and hot sauce. I've never put mayo on an "omelet" before. It was very tasty and filling. While that was cooking, I squeezed a bunch of oranges, limes, tangerines, some red pepper juice I had strained from the processing of a whole bunch of sweet red peppers on Thursday night, grated ginger, and a lemon to make freshly squeezed citrus juice for the five of us. The guy across the hall who makes gluten-free bagels, etc., brought a bunch of different buns, etc. I didn't try them--but they sure smelled good. Instead, I had a side of steamed asparagus. I was stuffed. Given that we worked a 12-hour day, it was nice to start the day with a hearty breakfast.

I think you'd better crack open that chemistry book Those differences are more important than you think.

This morning's breakfast was a tossed garden salad topped with two poached eggs and a side of spelt, half a dozen fresh strawberries. What did you have for breakfast?

As I was eating it, I added some homemade cottage cheese, haskap berries, some harissa EVOO, blueberry balsamic vinegar, chopped tomato, sunflower seeds. I am so full!

I lift weights, so my breakfasts tend to be protein heavy. I actually came on here to see what other people eat for breakfast to get ideas. My breakfasts alternate, and I'm getting pretty bored. Lunch is usually dinner leftovers and dinner tends to be vegetarian due to my husband being a vegetarian. In the summer, because of the BBQ, I tend to eat more meat at dinner. Anyone else train and have ideas?

I do these in the morning, because they're easy to do at 5am while I'm getting ready to leave the house for 6am.

Breakfast One
  • Two poached eggs
  • Smoked salmon with capers and red onion
  • Sauteed spinach
  • Cottage cheese with green onion

Breakfast Two
  • 2 baked eggs with nutritional yeast
  • Asparagus or green beans
  • Peameal bacon
  • Greek yogurt

Breakfast Three
  • Two baked eggs
  • Two sausages (not breakfast. Usually spicy Italian or a csabai)
  • Cottage cheese with green onion.

I have greens, eggs, and grains for breakfast. My breakfast is my largest meal of the day. Meals get lighter throughout the day. I just had a tossed salad with yogurt mixed with Chef's blend spice for the dressing, strawberries, haskap berries, and some grated parm. cheese.

Today's breakfast was 4 oz flat-iron steak topped with a poached egg, steamed Swiss Chard, warm Freekeh salad topped with some feta, haskap berries, and a zucchini fritter with homemade salsa (heated up) on the side. I'm so full.

I recently purchased a Greek Yogurt Maker and I've been having great fun making regular yogurt, Greek yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese and farmer's cheese. (It's all a matter of whey content and how long it drains.) Needless to say, I have fresh yogurt (often with fruit) most mornings.

That made me smile, Boracay. How nice that they were able to experience blueberry pancakes for the first time and loved them!
