    What Did You Have for Breakfast Today?

    AMA nutritionists and hungover winos both tell us it's the most important meal of the day. What did you eat this morning?

    Funny you should ask, friend...

    I toasted some of the frozen homemade waffles from yesterday's breakfast and made a pot of organic coffee. (I also snuck in a cookie from the GF's baking extravaganza.. )
    I go to open a new vat of Smart Balance (one of those fake butter, good for you tubs), it looks a little yellow but I put a small dab on the waffles. I look at the side of the tub, and it says best if used by JUL2005

    Needless to say, I threw everything out, finished the coffee and I am waiting for the bagels at the weekly staff meeting.

    cereal w/ skim milk
    toast w/ strawberry preserves
    glass of water because I forgot to buy orange juice

    I usually do a heavier breakfast (eggs, pancakes, etc.) on the weekend when I have more time to cook something up.

    My wife never ate breakfast until we got married. She lost almost 10 pounds since then without any other alterations to diet or exercise.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    I began the South Beach Diet over a week ago. Not solely for weight loss, though I could easily lose 20 pounds and look a lot better, but because of the blood chemisty issues that the Dr. raises (early diabetes, heart conditions, etc). I used to just have a granola bar with my morning coffee at work. But now breakfast is 2 eggs over medium, bacon (or taylor ham whatever mood I'm in) and a small piece of cheese with a pint of water (sometimes more), all prepared by myself first thing. Evidently breakfast ends up being pretty important as it "gets your motor going" and actually increases motabolism contrary to what many people do by skipping breakfast thinking they are saving themselves calories/carbs. In another week when I'm into phase 2 I will probably eat South Beach breakfast bars or a good fiber cereal.

    Hmmm...yes, good to see the important issues of the day get a full airing out here

    Two of Mrs. Tranplanner's banana nut muffins and a glass of orange juice. A cup of tea first thing at the office, and a coffee and a bagel at break.

    I'll jump the gun a bit and say I will be having leftover homemade pizza for lunch.

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    I had my homemade breakfast milkshake: 1/2 c. skim milk, 1/2 c. skim ricotta, 2 tsp. cocoa, 1 tsp. instant coffee, ice and 3 packets splenda. Tastes great, filling and low carbs.

    edit: And for Tide... this is a Phase I approved meal! I'm still on Phase I of SBD as well. Lost 13 lbs so far and I love this diet.

    WHA DA F***? Maister of the bearded, slavic, east-european looking, liberal guy avatar provides no bagel option? I'm surprised at you.

    I had a toasted garlic bagel with butter on one side, and apricot jam on the other, with strong black coffee.

    That reminds me of Bill Cosby's "Chocolate Cake for Breakfast" skit. If you can find it and listen it's worth it, one of his funniest pieces.

    Wow, I ate almost the same thing, except substitute vanilla yogurt, blueberries and eliminate the banana (that is my mid afternoon snack).

    plain oatmeal, raisins, coffee, and an apple.

    I'm amazed this thread hasn't gone downhill yet.
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.
