Two cups of coffee.

Cruiser's avatar

Stash double bergamot Earl Gray Black Tea and Cream of Wheat.

tedibear's avatar

Two waffles with peanut butter and my usual multiple cups of coffee. There will be strawberries later as I eat breakfast in two stages.

What do I think I should have had? Oatmeal. Not just because it’s healthy but because I like it.

gailcalled's avatar

Steel-cut oatmeal, a few dried cranberries and walnuts, some cinnamon and turmeric and a pot of brewed Earl Gray (with a pinch of sugar),

ragingloli's avatar

Bread and vegetable juice.

Pachy's avatar

Two poached eggs, cuppa java, liberally buttered English muffin, and a Del Monte cup of grapefruit slices. That’s what I have most mornings, although sometimes the eggs are hard boiled, I swap the muffin for rye toast, and as an extra treat, add a few crisp bacon slices.

Mr. T coffee, strong & black/Cereal

rojo's avatar

Buttered raw toast with Sumatran coffee. More coffee to come later.

I should have cut out the butter, and the bread, probably.

@Pachy mmmmm. poached eggs (on an sourdough English muffin), haven’t had those for a while. Know what I am having for breakfast on Saturday!

Duck confit and duck egg on waffle with mustard maple syrup. With coffee.

syz's avatar

Nothing.

ibstubro's avatar

Diet Dr. Pepper is what I had.

One of those little cups of fresh pineapple in the fridge should have probably been my choice.

jaytkay's avatar

Oatmeal with raisins & walnuts
Smoothie – Orange juice, banana, blueberries, spinach and yogurt
Coffee

Some days I will have a hardboiled or scrambled egg, too.

livelaughlove21's avatar

A homemade instant oatmeal “packet” (best. recipe. ever!) made with skim milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon along with a cup of coffee with sugar free creamer and splenda and a bottle of water. All enjoyed from my desk at work. Yum! :)

Bluefreedom's avatar

I’m about to have a bowl of cold cereal. What I should have had was a bagel with cream cheese, 8 strips of bacon, two scrambled eggs, and hash browns. The only way that was going to happen was if someone cooked it for me. No such luck.

zenvelo's avatar

Low Carb veggie breakfast burrito with avocado, and lots of coffee. My standard daily breakfast.

jca's avatar

Greek yogurt, vanilla flavored. I add chopped walnuts to it. Also coffee and tea at home, and coffee at work. Milk and artificial sweetener added.

We are having a NOAA weather service declared Blizzard right now. Winds up to 50 mph. Everything is shut down. They are predicting 16–20 inches of snow.
I am working from home so my breakfast was more leisurely.

I am still trying to use up stuff and clean out my cupboards.. So…
I ate: a bowl of salad with old Parmesan Italian dressing and old sesame seeds. 4 pieces of whole wheat toast 3 with butter and jam (I used up the jar. Yay!) and one with honey butter that expired 2 years ago. And 2 cups of coffee sweetened with the honey butter.

livelaughlove21's avatar

@LuckyGuy Blizzard in mid-March? Blech! I’ve never been so glad to live in South Carolina. It’s 74 degrees here today.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I had coffee, orange juice and a glass of water with pysillium husk fiber.
@LuckyGuy Keep your head down and the wood stove lit. I’ve been watching the weather maps, we’re on the south side of that storm. It looks brutal out your way. Good luck.

LuckyGuy's avatar

Yeah. This one is pretty bad. Schools and businesses are shut down. Some of the counties are already closed and are only allowing emergency vehicles. Check out this alert from NOAA.
Look along the shoreline from Buffalo to Rochester. Spectacular. Read the last paragraph! Remember we know how to drive in this stuff. That is a very unusual comment.

TRAVEL CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO DETERIORATE THROUGH THE NOON HOUR…

MODERATE TO…AT TIMES…HEAVY SNOW WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON HOURS ACROSS WESTERN NEW YORK. TEMPERATURES WILL FALL
TO THE LOWER 20S BY EARLY AFTERNOON…ALLOWING FOR SNOW
ACCUMULATION AND SLICK DRIVING CONDITIONS. SNOWFALL RATES OF 1
INCH PER HOUR HAVE ALREADY BEEN OBSERVED ACROSS WESTERN NY. WINDS
ARE ALREADY GUSTING TO 35 MPH…WITH HIGHER GUSTS EXPECTED THIS
AFTERNOON. THIS IS RESULTING IN BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW…AS
WELL AS REDUCED VISIBILITIES.

BY AFTERNOON…NORTHEAST WINDS GUSTING TO 45 MPH WILL RESULT IN
CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW…AS WELL AS VISIBILITIES
OF NEAR ZERO AT TIMES. IN ADDITION…SNOWFALL RATES COULD REACH 2
INCHES PER HOUR DURING THE PEAK OF THE STORM THIS AFTERNOON.

TRAVEL WILL BECOME EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS OR EVEN NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE
AT TIMES DUE TO THE COMBINATION OF VERY HEAVY SNOW AND BLOWING
SNOW. TRAVEL IS NOT RECOMMENDED. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL…SLOW DOWN
AND BE SURE TO HAVE EXTRA FOOD AND WATER IN YOUR CAR…AS WELL AS
A FULLY CHARGED CELL PHONE.

sausage and rice.

gondwanalon's avatar

My usual concoction that I mix up in a liter bottle that I always make the night before. Ingredience: oat meal, wheaties, Goji berries, raisins, whey protein powder and soy milk. I shake it up and put it in the refrigerator to sit overnight. I slurp it down on my long commute to work. My wife is a dietitian and has OK’d it.

livelaughlove21's avatar

@gondwanalon What does that taste like? Does it have much flavor?

Coloma's avatar

Having it now, my usual bowl of raisin bran. haha

ibstubro's avatar

I ended up having a granola bar that was covered in chocolate a brown waxy substance. I still shoulda had that pineapple.

DigitalBlue's avatar

Orange juice and coffee and yogurt.

AssyrianKing9's avatar

A banana, rich on carbs and protein.

talljasperman's avatar

Nothing I don’t eat til 5pm… and that is a replacement drink.

Coloma's avatar

A lot of you guys aren’t getting your morning brain wake up proteins.tsk tsk…

DominicX's avatar

Special K Fruit and Yogurt. It’s either that or flax-seed infused oatmeal. :)

longgone's avatar

Bread (the healthy kind) and cheese. To drink, store-bought iced tea. Not my go-to choice.

What I should have had: Something other than that iced tea.

Coloma's avatar

Oooh..bread! I have a fresh bakery loaf of an olive oil and rosemary I’m about to break.
Bread and cheese and fruit is a great breakfast!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Coloma I want to so dis you. That sounds so good. Bakery loaves and cheese are so so good.

ibstubro's avatar

I remember when a local grocery and I were young. As I was walking down the street I’d smell the bread baking. Stop in, buy a block of cheddar, a steaming loaf, then tear the bread off and wrap it around cheddar chunks.

FANTASTIC!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ibstubro You throw a little German mustard on that and I’m hunting you down for a bite.

Coloma's avatar

Mmmm fresh bread, butter and crab meat with a Honeycrisp apple right now…heaven.

talljasperman's avatar

When I was living with my mom… I would have poached eggs on toast. and 2% milk.

ibstubro's avatar

Hunt me down?? @Adirondackwannabe? You bring the German mustard and we’re “Smack Dab in the Middle!”

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ibstubro Hunt you down for a bite. I’m nonviolent most of the time.

gondwanalon's avatar

@livelaughlove21 It tastes OK. I don’t care much about flavor for breakfast. I just trying to fill my belly as fast as possible with healthy high protein, high whole grain food. But I do switch between vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavored whey protein for variety.

downtide's avatar

Nothing yet but what I will have soon is a poached egg, toast, a couple of small skinless sausages and a cup of English breakfast tea. I get this from a café on my way to work and do the same every work-day.

jca's avatar

@AssyrianKing9: I don’t think bananas have protein.

rojo's avatar

I think the punch line to that is:

“I got your protein banana right here!”

livelaughlove21's avatar

@jca A banana has about 1.3 g of protein. In other words, you are correct. Bananas certainly aren’t rich in protein. Carbs, yes.

LornaLove's avatar

We seem mostly like a healthy bunch! I had gluten free muesli with raw oats and lactose free milk. Then a cup of tea. Some interesting one’s here too…duck?!

livelaughlove21's avatar

@LornaLove I know, right? I’m not sure I could stomach duck or sausage and rice first thing in the morning. Same goes for Italian dressing. Then again, Italian dressing makes me gag any time of the day. It’s the smell, I think. I’ll stick to my oatmeal.

ibstubro's avatar

Okay, okay. I’ll do better today. Diet Dr. Pepper and the last few bites of cold anchovy pizza from the fridge. :)
Healthy

Coloma's avatar

Bananas though, are not a complete protein, like animal proteins, meat, milk, eggs, yogurt, sooo, the trace amounts of proteins do nothing to activate your brain and body for the day.

longgone's avatar

Bananas are full of potassium, though, aren’t they?

Coloma's avatar

@longgone Yep, but Avocados have even more. :-)

longgone's avatar

@Coloma But those I don’t like, sadly.

livelaughlove21's avatar

@longgone When most people think potassium, they think bananas. Plus, not nearly as much fat or calories as avocados. Granted, they’re good fats and it’s a healthy food, but that doesn’t really make a difference if you don’t have the calories to spare.

longgone's avatar

@livelaughlove21 Good to know. I will keep enjoying my bananas.

jca's avatar

Bananas – source of potassium but not a good source of protein.
