I'm interested in finding out how many people manage to make time for breakfast everyday! And if you do manage to, how do you fit it in?
I set my alarm for two hours (or thereabouts) before I need to leave to be somewhere just so I have time for some sort of breakfast. These days it is mostly so I have time to relax over a decent cup of tea (or coffee on the days when I need a serious caffeine kick) before taking my morning vitamins and a protein bar and heading out the door. On the mornings when I have to be out the door at 6:45, a 4:30am alarm is a very rude awakening, but it's worth it to ensure a hot drink and time to myself.
If you don't have it everyday, how often do you manage to have it?
There are a few days I don't end up with time to sit (most often due to feline emergencies), so I grab a protein bar and a travel mug and drink my hot drink on the way to where I am going and eat my bar when I get there. I never miss the meal itself (due to nutritional needs) but the method can differ.
And what would be your ideal breakfast?
My ideal breakfast is poached eggs over a gluten free English muffin, with a side of maple bacon, home made baked beans, a couple of chicken sausage chipolatas, grilled tomato, sauteed mushrooms and a home made hash brown, with gluten-free waffles and maple syrup as a chaser. Alas I can no longer eat most of that (due to stomach surgery and sensitivities), so my current go-to breakfast is a pot (500ml) of extra-strong Twinings English Breakfast Tea, followed by either two small pieces of gluten free toast and plum jam or Vegemite or a Systemax low-carb protein bar or a small protein shake :/
