i love breakfast, and i’m not ashamed to say it. i can honestly and with 100% confidence say that, especially in the states, it is one of the most under-appreciated (if not completely ignored) meals in the course of a single day. i make sure to wake up nice and early almost every day (including the weekends, i know i’m crazy) to make myself a good old-fashioned 1950’s style breakfast.
and as an avid breakfast fan, i’m here to tell you that while breakfast might not scientifically be proven as the most important meal of the day, it can easily become the meal that sets the pace for an entire 24 hours. suffice to say, cereal won’t cut it. if you start your day with cereal and some milk everyday, you are going to be sluggish and starving by lunch time. it just isn’t good for you.
personally, i make sure to eat hearty. eggs are a staple, and i always make an effort to include some fresh veggies and little bit of starch, too. in all honesty, the only food group that i regularly completely ignore is fruit. i’m not too big on sweet stuff, and high concentrations of sugar tend to make you crash later in the day.
today i was in rare form. i woke up nice and early, made a big pot of coffee, and got to work. my farmer friends have thrown produce at me left and right this month, so i resolved to use as much of the fresh goodies as i good today. the result was absolutely delicious, super manly, and chock full of nutrients.
sometimes you just have to wake up in the morning, look in the mirror, and remind yourself that you are from ‘merica. and today was one of those days.
