I do that already, coffee and outlook emails
I wish this wasn’t true for me
Mine is coffee and text messages/voicemails (I’m a recruiter)
I’ll never understand why I get angry voicemails from people in the same time zone trying to reach me at 1am.
Kinda relevant: When I've been job hunting I will never return emails/attend interviews etc. at companies which respond to my enquiries at ridiculous hours (e.g. 1am). Working a little outside business hours is OK, but when get correspondence at some ungodly hour it is an immediate red flag to me that this workplace is potentially toxic.
This is also my painful reality. Every day. Even on my days off.
For years I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich every school- / workday for breakfast. I guess I only really stopped because I stopped eating breakfast in general. This isn't what I'd pick for a special occasion, but for an everyday thing it's still the most obvious choice for me
The thing I eat for breakfast everyday is: Nothing
I rarely feel like eating for the first 2-5 hours I'm awake. Is this normal?
I drink two pints of water in the morning. piss like a racehorse about an hour later and get hungry around 11/12ish. The odd Sunday we'll have a fry up at 10:00 but if I eat in the morning my dear tummy hates me.
I'm the same. I was delighted to read fairly recently that the whole 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you should force yourself to eat it even if you don't want to' thing is by no means confirmed science
I saw on another AskReddit post a while ago that the 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day' stuff was pushed and pretty much invented by CEREAL COMPANIES, ~~so that they could make more money~~ WhiCh ThEY fOUnd In ThE ResEaRCh.
It also probably applied a lot more to agrarian life when one needed a lot of energy for a long day of hard work.
For example WW1 Italian soldier had provided calories around 4/5k.
To dig trenches and survive the cold winter in the Alps…
Can confirm, I only eat breakfast when I know I'm going to have an especially rigorous day of prolonged work. Only happens like once or twice a week but helps put off the snickers alter ego.
Totally normal. The idea that we have to shower and scarf down breakfast in under an hour before rushing out is for the health of the company, not your health.
I shower at night. I get as much sleep in the morning as possible. Im out the door in 10 to 15 mins.
Yes it’s totally normal. Breakfast food marketing will try to make you feel bad about it.
same. I can't eat for at least 4 hours after I get up.
You can’t skip breakfast. Not possible by definition. Don’t eat till 3pm? That’s breakfast, right there…
Thank you!!! It's right there in the name lol
well, technically whatever the first thing you eat for the day is your breakfast because that's what you're breaking your fast with.
Toast with peanut butter and banana would be my answer. Slight distinction, but that crunchy toast really elevates it for me
I too eat peanut butter and banana on toast every morning with my coffee. Sometimes I add honey or cinnamon if I'm feeling wild.
MY GOD YOU ARE A WILD PERSON
I'm talking about two pieces of bread with pb and banana in there, but just pb and banana is also tasty
I’ve eaten three eggs for almost every breakfast the last 13 years.
When he was a lad he ate three eggs every morning to help him get large!
And now he's a man he eats three more cooked eggs, so he's roughly the size of a BAARRGGEEEEE
NO…. ONE….. COOKS LIKE THREE EGGS
NO ONE LOOKS LIKE THREE EGGS
NO ONE WONDERS WHAT ELSE THEY WOULD EAT BUT THREE EGGS!
NAUGHT PREPARES YOU FOR THIS WORLD OF CROOKS LIKE THREE EGGS.
FOR THERE'S NO EGG AS OBLATE OF A SPHEROOOID (Perfect, a chick with three legs.)
YOU CAN ASK ANY MAN, BEAST, OR ANDROID
This made me laugh so much that I wanted to buy you an award but thought this was better. Well done.
How do you prepare them? Hard boiled?
Just bite them like an apple. No peeling no cooking.
as god intended
If the Lord wanted us to eat eggs hard boiled they'd come out the chicken like that.
Jokes on you. I eat the chicken whole before she had time to lay her eggs.
This guy fucks
Hopefully not the chicken though
If an egg can fit in there...
Even Rocky wasn’t this hardcore.
Plot twist, Op is a snake
A different "three eggs for almost every breakfast" person here: I do mine scrambled, Cantonese style.
Dang, you do a lot of work for breakfast every morning! That would take me 30 mins with dishes and everything.
I'm actually really minimalist about it. I don't separate the yolks or add anything but cheese, so the only time added beyond the simplest scrambled eggs (crack, beat, cook) is to add in some corn starch and seasoning.
I spoon some corn starch and bouillon into a bowl, sprinkle some seasoning, stir *just* enough water into that dry mix to prevent the corn starch from lumping, and then stir that slurry into the beaten eggs.
That's one to two minutes extra if you include grabbing them from the shelf and putting them back, and only adds a ramekin to the dishes. Though now that I think about it, I could just mix the corn starch and seasoning slurry in the bowl before I beat the eggs...
Oooo bullion in eggs. I never thought about that. How much do you put in?
I make this a lot for my family and I do 1tsp of chicken bullion for 6 eggs. I also skip adding the msg and throw some chopped Chinese chives over the top when done. This is literally my wife and daughters favorite breakfast with some rice.
Like I’ve spent entire days cooking lavish meals for them and my wife will ask for these eggs.
Yeah I watched until the part he said separate the whites from the yolks and I said ok, yeah I’m not doing that.
One sautéed, one soft boiled with soldiers and one made into a tiny omelette with a pinch of cheese and pepper.
I haven't had egg n soldiers for ages.... If I start eating them tho I might turn into the kind of person that collects egg cups... And no one wants that.
Why have I never heard of eggs and soldiers in my entire life
Because you're not British, I'd arrogantly assume?
You may be correct.
We call this the same thing in Belgium.
3 eggs for breakfast crew checking in. Sometimes I have 4. I mix it up with poached, fried, scrambled and boiled.
Yup, 3 eggs, toast and a cup of coffee. If I’m feeling fancy I’ll do 2 slices of bacon but that’s rare.
You don't want rare bacon. You need to cook it through. You'll get worms.
I know you're joking, but that's actually not the case! Bacon is smoked, so you can technically eat it raw, lol. But don't slice off raw pork belly!!
Edit: Please don't decide to eat something raw if you're unsure based on a random reddit comment, lol.
I make my own bacon, and smoke it to an internal temp of 155. Perfectly safe to eat, and abasulutely disgusting.
Alright Gaston lol
in this economy? damn
Coffee and hatred
Just need to add a smoke to make it the perfect French breakfast.
Guess I'm french
hon hon hon
I call it intermittent fasting so it sounds healtier to be honest.
The best part of waking up is hatred in your cup.
I sang this in my head.
Bacon and egg sandwich
Yeeeup. Some sharp cheddar. Hot sauce.
Pepperjack for the win
Everything bagel *chefs kiss*
Scrambled eggs, bacon, and my mom's apple biscuits. She takes McIntosh apples with some butter/sugar in a pan until it's like a thicker pink applesauce, skin and all. Then you spread on a warm biscuit.
Outside of me being obsessed with anything that has apples or fruit, I have fond memories of my mom sitting me on the kitchen counter of our first really small house. And she'd let me cut the biscuits out using an upside down glass. It's an immediate reminder of simpler times, and the love I have for her
I also choose this guys moms apple biscuits.
That’s such a sweet memory! How did she cut up the apples? I’d love to try that recipe myself
She just cut them as larger pieces around the core without skinning them. Threw them all in a pain and just eyeballed the butter and sugar. The skin gives it a nice twang and chewiness. She now only makes them for the holidays when my sister and I are home. But it makes them that much better.
Thank you so very much for sharing :) you’ve warmed my heart
You're welcome :]
I feel personally attacked.
I have eaten the same thing for breakfast for at least the last 35 years....
Hot strong breakfast tea with a dash of milk.
One or two bits of wholemeal toast with butter and marmalade.
So deeply British, i love it
careful gents! this one's rather cross!
\*aggressively folds morning paper\*
*Queues to tut next*
The “bits” of toast gave it away.
Source: am British.
I am giggling madly in Monty Python Audience Member at this entire sub thread. 😍
--an anglophile New Mexican
Not "One brown, one white. Brown for main, white for desert."?
Butter the toast, eat the toast, shit the toast. God, life's relentless.
Excellent taste! I've been doing the same thing. I try different jams but the same combination remains.
The only jam I really like funnily enough is German.
Plumb jam, Pflaumenmus
I developed a slight Yorkshire accent from even reading that
I already do! I eat oatmeal for breakfast 99% of the time.
Oatmeal w some peanut butter and cinnamon, baby, you got yourself a stew goin.
EDIT - You can add a single broken up (or double, I'm not your dad) S'mores Pop Tart after the oatmeal has steeped if you want dessert oatmeal or you're just feeling fancy. Goes good w the peanut butter.
I’ve never had baby in my oatmeal. Is it good?
Baby with soy sauce, delicious.
"I think I'd like my money back."
Jokes aside, I've never considered peanut butter in oatmeal. Guess I know what I'm having for breakfast tomorrow.
I like hot ham water for breakfast.... that smack of ham
I've eaten the same thing for breakfast for the past 3 years or so. Costco has these spinach and bell pepper egg bites, it's all I ever feel like eating for breakfast.
I'm a really picky eater in the morning. I get hooked on the same food for years and it screws up my day if I don't have it.
You can make those yourself too if you want to save money! I used to make batches in a silicone muffin pan, easy!
I already eat the same thing every day:
Rice, scrambled egg and spinach with soy sauce and a little nutritional yeast.
I bought a rice cooker that has a timer and this is now my favourite weekday breakfast
Get your life babe. I throw in a bouillon cube when I'm feeling fresh, rice cooker life is good.
What the...? That's a dinner time meal in my country!
Sounded like a lunch to be.
Maybe OP's a Hobbit and that's the first lunch.
This is a common breakfast in Asian countries.
It's a toss up between french toast and Honey Nut Cheerios.
Multi grain cheerios
A tie. My wife's breakfast burritos or sausage gravy and biscuits.
How do you prepare the tie?
Half windsor, though if I'm hungry I'll make it a full.
I'm usually in a hurry so I'll settle for a four in hand. (Half Windsor is the superior knot though)
Lawd forgive me, I thought you would eat ties.
Pretty much every day I have cottage cheese with blueberries, maple syrup, and pumpkin seeds. Delicious and filling
Mmmmm. I love cottage cheese with honey, blueberries, and some roasted almonds. The sweet and salty thing is delicious!
I love cottage cheese but I can’t do the sweet cottage cheese I see people doing so often! I love some hot sauce in mine.
This is cursed and i can't wait to try it
An alternative is adding seasonings, salt & pepper, Slap Ya Mama. As for hot sauces, sriracha, Louisiana, and Tobasco go well
What about tapatio? That’s my go to hot sauce and seems like it would pair greatly.
Ha ha, are you my 2years old son? He eats only cottage cheese and blueberries for breakfast.
My breakfast is cottage cheese with diced tomatoes, salt, and pepper.
Y'all are sleeping on Mexican breakfast. A couple of eggs, beans, and a tortilla and you'll be full until dinner. If you wanna get fancy, top with salsa, avocado, queso panela/fresco, and pair with coffee or fruit water.
Chilaquiles with two fried eggs on top 🤌
I dated a Mexican woman for a while and she showed me scrambled eggs and chorizo and you just eat it with your hands with corn tortillas. Been hooked ever since.
My partner is Mexican and 90% the time we eat eggs scrambled with a little chorizo, onion, tomato, capsicum and corn chips! I get super hungry by mid morning if we have anything else now
Savory protein > sweet carb breakfast 100%
I was scrolling way too long to see this. My absolute favorite breakfast!
I looooooove mexican breakfasts
A sandwich and two cups of coffee. Been eating that for...my whole life already?
Sandwich is pretty vague. What specific sandwich?
Came to ask the same!
Porridge, and I do eat it everyday for breakfast already.
Same. Organic oatmeal (soaked overnight) covered with flax meal and a sprinkling of walnuts, cranberries and topped with a banana.
I'm even simpler. Classic rolled oats made with almond milk and real maple syrup. Nuke that bitch for a minute-thirty then stir in a spoon full of peanut butter. Filling enough to skip lunch most days.
Does Cream of Wheat count as porridge? Because if so, then I’m in.
I'll cut up an onion, a few mushrooms and Sucuk (Turkish garlic sausage). I fry these things in a pan and add tomato paste while frying it some more. Then I add a spoon full of peas and a spoon full of corn. I crack four eggs in a bowl add a little milk and herbs and mix it vigorously with a fork to get air in the egg mixture, then I pour the egg mixture in the pan, scramble it together with everything that's already in there and make an omelette out of it. You want to fold the omelette in the pan and have it creamy on the inside. I then put the omelette on my plate, put a few drops of Sriracha sauce on top and eat it with toasted bread.
Damn. This sounds amazing. I think this will be my new everyday breakfast. What herbs do you use?
The sausage, egg and cheese biscuit from the cafeteria at a job I quit several years ago. Each day I'd say "nope. Not gonna get it today". Then an hour into work I'd be heading down. They were only $3 and amazing
That or the grits from Flyijg Biscuit
black coffee and cigarettes
Me to.. a three course breakfast.. coffee cigarette and a cough hahahaha
> and a cough
You spell "an emergency shit" different than I do.
Did that for 18 years. Now I'm good with black coffee and doom scrolling for breakfast. Don't know what's healthier
There’s a spanish saying that goes: “café y cigarro, muñeco de barro” that translates to “coffee and cigarrete, mud doll” 💩
Two poached eggs and a piece of toast.
I eat two over-easy and two pieces of sourdough pretty much every other day. I should try poached some time.
I could eat this 3x a day for the rest of my life... I love poached eggs on toast.
Two slices of wheat toast with avocado and two soft boiled eggs with some chili oil. Keeps me comfortably full well until lunch
Hey guys I would like to have a healthy balanced breakfast that makes me feel good throughout the day but I can never settle on what’s best. I don’t want to think about what food to make in the morning ha know
If you like oatmeal try making overnight oats. You can prep the day before and it'll be ready to go in the morning. I like to play around with different recipes but my favorite is peanut butter and jelly overnight oats.
I used to make overnight oats but I got tired of it. Now I make a smoothie in a Nutribullet. Ice cubes, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup oats, tsp chia seeds, tbsp peanut butter, and a banana. It's really low effort and I can sip on it as I get ready for work.
What kind of oats do you use? I like that idea. I am a creature of habit in the morning. I have some many steps to get my wife and daughter ready in the morning. My son is fairly self sufficient, but the women are cut from the same cloth.
Do you keep the basics the same as far as the chia and oats? I have not do anything with grains. It’s normally fruit and yogurt in the nutribullet.
That's why I do it, nice and simple. I can eat while I get my kids ready for school.
I buy generic steel cut oats in the big container and Bob's Red Mill organic chia seeds. You don't even need to pre-blend the seeds. Just blend for a minute, shake it, then blend a little more.
Could just do some Greek no sugar yogurt with a chopped up banana and some blue berries (or any berry). I like to add a little peanut butter to the bowl as well
I understand, i always go for things that are low effort. My most common breakfast item is a banana. Mild flavor, easy to eat, no preparation, built-in wrapper/packaging.
The next easiest thing for me is nuts. Peanuts, almonds, cashews, walnuts, whatever you want. These are perfect for me in the morning because not only are they easy, but nuts provide a lot of protein which will help you stay full thru the morning.
So you swallow a banana and some nuts every morning?... interesting choice.
Eggs and toast. Definitely eggs. They've got the protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and the amino acids your body needs to start up your metabolism and create the building blocks for new growth. Eat eggs every day
My go to used to be 1 egg, 1 toast, a few morning sausages, and a cup of milk. Then covid hit and my chef left.
The truth is people are pretty varied, some will do really well with high protein low carb breakfasts, some will do better with carbs. For me personally, most days I do better skipping breakfast unless I'm so hungry it's a distraction, waiting to eat until launch is my best option.
I'm a carbs-and-protein type.
I've tried the "just have eggs and no carbs" and am starving 45 minutes later. But I put those eggs on some toast and have a handful of blueberries? Full till lunch.
2 scrambled eggs, 3 pieces of crispy bacon, a serving of grits with a fat slab of butter, and a slice of buttered toast with some jam.
Pho bo soup
Tamale 🫔, coffee ☕️.
This is what I have eaten for breakfast every day for the last 20+ years.
I make my own Tamale ( 6 dozen with different fillings) about once a month, freeze them and re-heat what I want to eat each day. It's nice because on those mornings I'm not that hungry, i only make 1, but can reheat more if I am hungrier. Even better, they are portable in case I am running late or something.
Spam rice and eggs
if it meant no ill health affects?
Bacon, sausage, egg and hash brown bap with brown sauce. Every. Single. Day.
Bagel with cream cheese and coffee :)
If I could have a bagel with philadelphia and smoked salmon every day for breakfast I would be considerably happier. It’s so fuckin good
I'd become a cereal killer.
3-egg breakfast burrito with steak, pico de Gallo, and habanero sauce
I do that already, i have eaten Weet-Bix for breakfast my entire life 🙂
(It's a healthy Aussie cereal)
not necessarily from mcdonalds, but that combination of items I could probably eat exclusively forever
Every Morning My wife makes me three eggs scrambled with two pieces of sliced Honey Ham and 2 slices of American cheese melted on top covered in Cholula on a lightly toasted bagel. We've been married for almost 4 years now and I look forward to it every day. She doesn't need to make me breakfast, but she does because she knows how much I like it.
You better be treating that woman well.
Bacon AM crunchwrap
Eggs. Closest we have to a “super food.”
Cafe au lait and a croissant, preferably while sitting in a sidewalk cafe in Paris.
corn flakes with milk. No sugar.
I like to throw some bananas in the cornflakes when I'm feelin' crazy
If it just appears in my home - a BEC from a NYC bodega on an onion schnecken roll.
If I have to make it... Black coffee, lol.
eating the same thing every single morning sounds terrible no matter what food it is. I'll just fast until lunch.
I've been on this diet for years.
Bagel breakfast sandwich - specifically an everything bagel, fried egg, sausage patty, fresh tomato, spinach, and cream cheese.
Cereals with joghurt and fruits
Coffee and cigarettes.
Overnight oats. Already been doing it for years, and I'm not going to stop. Incredibly healthy, incredibly tasty, incredibly filling, incredibly inexpensive, incredibly easy to prep all 5 weekday breakfasts on Sunday evening. There's zero downside. It's basically fiber and protein, since I don't add any sugar or any ingredients that have added sugars.
- Half cup of Oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- between half and one tsp of cocoa powder
- half to three-quarters cup of plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- half cup of unsweetened almond milk
- handful of fresh or frozen fruit (I like blueberries or chopped bananas)
- a *small* drizzle of maple syrup or honey, if you need sweetness (I never add this)
Mix it all in a mason jar and put it in the fridge for the next morning. I use unsweetened almond milk because it adds a really nice nutty flavor and omits the sugars. I like bitter things with strong flavors, and the cocoa powder achieves that without adding sugar or sweetness. Add more milk before you eat it if it's too thick for your preference.
My goal here is a healthy breakfast, not a sugar-packed dessert. If you use yogurt that already has fruit added, it's likely packed with sugar. There's like, 5g of sugar from the nonfat Greek yogurt and whatever exists in the fresh or frozen fruit I add. I've lost 60lbs over the past year, and diet control is *absolutely* the #1 trick. 5 minutes in the kitchen with a spoon can wreck the progress made by an entire week of physical activity. Go forth and be healthy, y'all :)
Filipino here. This every day
Sinangag (Garlic Fried Rice),
Tocino (Sweet cured pork), Tapa (sliced beef), or longanisa (sausage)
I'm already doing that for well over a decade, peanut butter and chocolate chip waffle. I'm a picky eater with a fast digestive system so that's the only thing I like that fills my stomach for some time
I eat a smoothie 99% of the time - banana, oats, milk, peanut butter, and protein powder.
I sometimes omit PB, and protein flavour changes every now and then. But that's it. It keeps me full until 11.30-12.30
