I don’t write about breakfast much but I thought I should do a real quick post on my typical starting meal.
On weekdays, I generally focus on three items that I take to work: meat, cheese, and fruit. Breakfast is the only time of day that I actively eat fruit, one or two pieces a day. I tend to eat applesauce, berries, plum, or kiwi. The meat is generally four slices of uncured lunchmeat (usually from Applegate Farms), beef jerky, smoked or canned salmon, or a can of sardines. Cheese is usually Kerrygold grass-fed Dubliner or Blarney cheese, or Trader Joe’s grass-fed cheddar.
Weekends is usually the same combination but only one piece of fruit max, with eggs and bacon added. Often I skip the cheese as well. I’m not a big fan of mixing eggs with other ingredients, so I don’t usually make omelets or those crazy Paleo concoctions you’ve probably seen floating around the internet. Sometimes we’ll make something with potatoes, and very rarely we take a stab at gluten-free pancakes (usually to disastrous result). Fried rice for breakfast is pretty tasty, too, and nothing beats spam musubi every once in a while.
That’s basically it. What do you eat for breakfast?

Mmm. Breakfast is def. my favorite meal of the day. During the weekdays it’s either hard boiled eggs and bacon with fruit or 1/2 cup oatmeal with egg whites and fruit. BUT the weekends is when we get sexy. My wife likes her eggs sunny side up, and I like mine scrambled. We’ll have bacon and fruit with it. The leisurely pace and non hard boiled eggs make all the difference.
Nice. I will sometimes have hard boiled eggs throughout the week, if my wife needs to use up a carton of eggs. We’re both “over medium” egg eaters, but seeing as how we’ve been eating so many eggs lately I’ve been thinking about experimenting a little more with poaching and basting just for some variety.
I really have a hankering for some kind of muesli. I’m gonna try some nuts, coconut, berries covered with coconut milk. Otherwise it’s eggs and veg. Maybe some rice or potato.
