Thread: What makes sense for breakfast?

    Quinoa is a high quality breakfast food because it has great nutritional content and is slow burning. I like it because it tastes good made savory or sweet.

    I've heard it said that its a good idea to eat fruit first in the morning, before eating anything else, but I can't recall the logic behind it. Another breakfast option for me is to make smoothies from frozen fruit (thawed out the night before) with a little juice and soymilk.

    Many cultures do soup for breakfast. Miso soup, for example, is supposed to be very good for starting the day. I enjoy miso soup for breakfast occasionally, but I buy the mix, I don't make it myself.

    What makes sense? Food.

    What doesn't made sense? No food.

    Too bad I have trouble trying to stuff a large portion into my stomach let alone even a decent sized portion for breakfast.

The add-ins help with the texture and the taste definitely.
    "Real" oatmeal takes only ~3-4 min to prepare in a microwave. I eat it almost every day, with various additives. I can't stand quick oats, and keep the instant stuff for emergencies.

    sometimes - eggs alone, fried
    every so often - sugary cereal and milk, lol
    every so often - eggs in an english muffin, with cheese and ham if I have any, even a bit of leafy greens on top is good
    rarely and only on weekends - pancakes, or bacon/eggs/fried potatoes

    I think what makes sense is high protein, some fat, some simple carbs, some complex carbs with fiber. I don't really have a reason, that just seems like a good way to start things. Combines long-lasting energy with a boost right away.
    ^ ooh all of that sounds so good!

    I often just have eggs and fruit. That isn't really cutting it now I am moving around so much. I think I will add in oatmeal. Any kind of balanced meal is fine, I don't know why more standard breakfast stuff is more carby. That doesn't make much sense.

    The traditional Japanese breakfast is grilled salmon, miso soup and rice. I like it but it is a bit of a hassle.

    What actually nutritionally makes the most sense in the morning?
    toast with eggs isnt an standard, even if its popular in where you live.

    i think porridge and some fruit would be optimal for nutrition

    If I have an hour free on the weekends, I make a big pot of steel-cut oatmeal - it doesn't need much watching, and it keeps very well. Throw it in a couple containers - it easily lasts for several days, maybe even until Friday, although mine's usually eaten by then. Just nuke it in the microwave for about 2min, add a bit of water if it looks dry/too thick.

    I don't think I can stomach the texture of instant oats anymore after trying the real stuff. I always really liked the instant stuff before, but the real stuff I could eat like candy (with some sugar added, anyway). And it doesn't take any longer to heat it up on the weekday mornings which is when you're rushed.

    but i personally love breakfast...i think it's my favorite...not much makes me happier than a long leisurely breakfast or brunch buffet loaded with all of my favorite stuff.

    I agree that eating a lot is good in the morning. I usually feel better and less hungry throughout the day if I do that. I've heard that people who eat a large breakfast usually are thinner, too, but that is not of particular concern for me.
