So I've been trying to improve my metabolism (as well as general overall health) by consistently eating three meals a day, plus the allowed two snacks of course. THREE meals a day which means, yup -- need to return to the world of breakfast food. I'll be honest -- eating in the morning is not something I relish. Not much looks good to me early in the day.
For some reason when it comes to breakfast I seem to settle into a rut and eat the same thing day after day until I tire of it, and then I move onto something new. Although if you compare me to my husband I am varied and adventurous. Paul faithfully eats a piece of peanut butter toast for breakfast every morning. Every! Single! Morning! Peanut Butter Toast! So boring!
I started out with oatmeal -- a childhood favorite. First I made the old fashioned kind, and then when I got tired of stirring the pot I started eating the instant stuff. Tiring quickly of mush I moved to cold cereals. You don't really need an explanation why I moved onto something else do you? I even tried peanut butter toast but I have to mention that I believe it borders on cruel and unusual punishment to expect someone to swallow peanut butter first thing in the morning.
Lately I've been eating eggs. Fried. Over medium -- you know, cooked on both sides so the whites are no longer squiggly but the yolks still ooze, and a piece of bread to wipe your plate. Pretty satisfying start to my day.
I'm out of ideas of what to eat when I tire of eggs. Maybe I'll move onto cold leftovers? Start the cycle over? [sigh] Have I mentioned how I hate to eat first thing in the morning?
