What Did You Eat for Breakfast?

Waiting on the corner to cross Ross this morning, I overheard one guy — earring, late 40s — say to his buddy, “I woke up at 6 again. Ate that veal chop. Just cold, right off the bone. It was perfect.”

Made me think about the weird breakfasts we sometimes eat. This morning I ate a handful of raw almonds, 1/3 of an apple (honey crisp variety, I think), and about six Doritos (spicy cheese or something like that). Breakfast of champions?

What did you eat to break your fast today?

  1. Discovered I was out of the rice milk I use to make my protein shake so…a handful of hot and spicy beef jerky and two cups of coffee.

  2. @JR: The name Muscle Milk creeps me out a little. I suppose the muscle is what it benefits, but I always read it as if CAME from a muscle.

  3. Wheat grain toast w/ almond butter. English breakfast tea & skim milk. Eating healthy today while dreaming of the smoked trout hash I’ll have at Cafe Pasqual in 2 weeks on my Santa Fe trip.

  4. Cinnamon roll and hot apple cider, followed by a Reese’s peanut butter cup (yay, Halloween candy!).

    @alyb–just got back from Santa Fe. Please pack me in your suitcase.

  5. Giant slice of wheat toast with pumpkin spice spread and a handfull of white chocolate peppermint pretzel crisps to munch on the train. Good morning, sugar rush.

  6. A juice mixture of fresh squeezed Texas oranges and grapefruit. (they are both so sweet right now!). And a bowl of Cocoa Krispies with banana slices with unsweetened almond milk.

  7. Cup of Earl Grey with milk and honey; bowl of homemade roasted butternut squash soup with shredded rotisserie chicken; half cup of 2% milk.

  8. Homemade (this weekend) steel-cut oatmeal with chopped roasted pecans and a honey-crisp apple.

  9. Jessica – I can top that. I had All-Bran AND Fiber One, mixed together with skim milk. And I’m under 40.

  10. Sausage egg and cheese kolache from kolache kitchen in the tunnel location, downtown houston, after a 7am flight from love.
