Breakfast Anyone?

What do you eat for breakfast when you're....?
a) lazy
b) not a morning person
c) not particularly fond of any breakfast foods
d) all of the above
Because seriously, I'm all of the above, and I'm kind of at a loss.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I just can't seem to do it. I don't really enjoy cereal. I detest eggs in almost any shape or form. Don't like oatmeal. Don't like yogurt. Can't eat fruit alone first thing in the morning without experiencing a major acidity problem.

Most days it's just coffee with Splenda and a dash of fat free creamer. For a while I was pretty consistent about half a bagel with a little smear of cream cheese, but, let's face it, that's pretty much the nutritional equivalent of chewing on a little bit of cardboard. Actually, cardboard probably has more fiber. This morning I had an apple and a spoonful of peanut butter at my desk around ten o'clock. Is that even enough to call breakfast?

I'd like to start my days right, with a healthy meal that I actually enjoy. Something that's quick and easy to put together and won't require getting up more than fifteen minutes earlier. Ideally nothing egg-based.

Does such a thing even exist? Anyone got any ideas? Because I could sure use some suggestions.


  1. Chocolate cake. Watch Bill Cosby. It's a breakfast food.

  2. Well, who am I to argue with Bill? Chocolate cake it is!

  3. I am also D. All of the Above. I have a slice of Ezekiel bread with peanut butter and sometimes a little bowl of fruit. The Ezekiel is a good dose of fiber, whole grain, and when you added in the PB you have some good protein too. This is also a very fast breakfast. Give it a try love!

  4. I totally should have thought of that! Especially since I watched you do it for years. Aw, peanut butter on toast makes me want to watch an episode of Dawson's Creek with you. Sigh, Pacey, sigh...

  5. I am all of the above as well, and the first thought I had was peanut butter toast. Also, turkey bacon is a good side.
