Who Eats Breakfast? Sunday Food Thread 6/16

It’s kind of a common sense axiom that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” but is that just a marketing slogan or does evidence back it up? This article has some good reasons to eat a morning meal but then has some unrealistic ideas about what a breakfast is.

  • High-fiber cereal with fresh fruit and low-fat milk or soy or rice milk substitute
  • Low-fat protein shake with fresh/frozen fruit
  • High-fiber toast or bagel with tablespoon of peanut butter
  • Select protein bar and yogurt or a glass of milk

How many of you regularly eat breakfast? Does it resemble those choices or is it heartier? Or do you just grab anything convenient and near on the run? I’ve lately been making a large portion of steel cut oatmeal in the Instant Pot and storing it in the fridge so I can microwave a helping each morning and I’ll add some almonds and/or fruit to it. Otherwise it’s as likely to be leftover anything or just a piece of toast.
