like gb, every second of sleep is precious to me. so my breakfast is usually just a few bites of each of the fruits and veggies and other things like cheese and crackers, and leftovers like pizza and pasta that i prepare for my birds every morning.
i also feed the cats, so it is very important to be awake enough to remember which animal's food to sample as i prepare their dishes.

on weekends, i like to go out early for eggs, maple bacon or taylor pork roll, potatoes/onions/peppers for homefries (cooked in bacon grease), polish rye, bagels, smoked salmon or whitefish and tunafish salad, coffee/juice and make a big breakfast. oh, can't forget the short stack of pancakes and real vermont maple syrup.

well I eat whatever I feel like. But a fine mag like Men's health suggests that a toasted whole grain bagel with a light smear of low fat cream cheese topped with a piece of smoked salmon and a slice of tomato, with maybe a leaf or two of baby spinach, is a fine way healthy start to your day. and I gotta say it's dang tasty too.

I can't face food first thing in the a.m., so I usually have a couple of cups of coffee at home while skimming the paper and hit the road for the office.

Once I get there (early), I like to have cereal with a sliced banana or one of those little fruit cups plopped into it, or I go to the nifty little deli nearby where I can get a cheese omelette, home fries (nice and greasy with crispy bits of onion), sausage or bacon, and some toast for $3.99. I also keep packets of Quaker instant oatmeal on hand at my desk for emergencies, and bring a quart of skim in every week to keep in the company fridge.

The best breakfast, in my opinion, is diner. I mean I can have the whole diner menu for breakfast, love it. Used to do it, back in less busy times in my life. I would seat down and have a regular meal before leaving for work. For diner though I would have much-much smaller meal. Those days I was wearing size 28, now it's 38.
You are what you eat.

Since time is of the essence during the week, I usually have a bowl of some sort of cereal, and an egg & cheese sandwich on either wheat bread or as of late, a bagel. Washed down with the milk (skim) from the cereal, OJ, and coffee for the road.

On weekends, Mrs. Big Dog will make pancakes or waffles sometimes. Otherwise, bacon and eggs by me, or a simple breakfast pie by me as well. Sunday sometimes doesn't allot time to cook much as we go to the early service. Especially if Saturday was a late night.

Not long ago, we had a big breakfast nearly every morning. I'd start the week off with bacon, sausage or ham, cheese grits, biscuits, eggs, & some sort of fruit, the next day, it would either be a breakfast casserole, breakfast pizza, or fritatta made from the meat leftover from the day before, & so on through the rest of the week. Some mornings it would just be biscuits, sausage gravy, & fruit. Awhile back, my doctor said I needed to slow down & get more rest so now, I make things that I can make the night before & just slide in the oven in the morning, breakfast casserole, overnight coffee cake, the occasional fritatta since they don't take long to make. I mainly do this for hubby & the kids since I don't eat breakfast until 9 or 10am.

I usually have fruits first thing in the morning, then I have different kinds of teas, Apple tea, ginger and lemon tea, mint tea, tea masala etc etc. I have them with toast, or croissants. On the toast I have omega 3 margarine, and marmalade, jam or peanut butter.

I love to cook breakfast food, but admit that over the yeas I have not been the biggest breaky eater ever. I find that when I first wake up I almost never have an appetite, and wait a while before munching. I like light breakfast during the week, perhaps some like fruit, tea, yogurt (lol, I some times joke that I live off of yogurt), a smoothie, granola or oatmeal. Or maybe some wheat or other dark bread with honey, or a slice of cheese.

I do love to get fancy on the weekends though, and make things like crepes, pancakes, muffins, egg dishes and homemade breads
