Breakfast

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?

If you don't have it everyday, how often do you manage to have it?

And what would be your ideal breakfast?

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 :/
