If you can't tell, I'm on a breakfast kick. I truly, honestly, whole-heartedly believe that breakfast is the absolute most important meal of the day. And there is tons of evidence to back up my belief. Granted, most of that evidence is coming from people who preach whole-grains as a healthy part of their diet. However, they are largely correct in the rest of their findings. (Now, to get the world to realize that whole grains DO NOT have to be a part of breakfast...)
Anyways, while I was throwing my breakfast together this morning, it made me think of how ridiculous it is for people not to do it. I opened the fridge, took out a container of left over green beans and sweet potato fries from dinner the other night, cut them up real quick, threw 'em in a skillet over medium heat with a little oil, whipped two eggs, poured them over top the veggies, grabbed a cup of coffee, stirred the skillet a little, put away stuff in the kitchen, stirred the skillet a little, grabbed a plate, and took my food off the stove. Mmm... breakfast...
If you don't have a stove, whip up a few eggs, put 'em in a bowl in the microwave for 1 minute, walk away and do your thing, come back and eat BREAKFAST! Grab some nuts and a banana, and walk out your door.
Chow down on some yogurt, berries, and sliced almonds.
Grab a hunk of left over chicken thigh and some acorn squash (both wonderful cold).
Or check out this list (stolen from MDA) for more quickie ideas.
Whatever you do, though, please please please, DON'T SKIP BREAKFAST!
