Best meal of the day!

I’m a breakfast person. I wake up hungry. I can’t function properly without a good breakfast inside me. When I worked, I used to feel quite shaky inside until I had my bacon and egg teacake devoured. For me its the most important meal of the day, but over my lifetime, I have noted that we all  seem to be divided into two distinctive groups, the ‘must eat a breakfast’ types and those who simply can’t seem to stomach anything to eat much before lunch time. K is not particularly bothered about breakfast. She will eat one if you are doing a cooked breakfast, but otherwise she isn’t bothered.



Yet she will gladly still be eating at nightime whereas I don’t want to eat much after about 17.00pm.  I am not a supper person. Those who aren’t bothered about breakfast tend to eat later in the day than I do. In fact I can skip eating at all after lunchtime but breakfast is a must. What type of eater are you? Can you miss breakfast out and if so, are you a supper person?  Or are you like me, waking up in the morning ravenous but not so bothered about eating later in the day?

  1. Interesting one. for me it is definitely later. If I eat breakfast then I want 11’ses, lunch, high tea, and supper … it’s as if once I start I can’t stop. On the other hand, when I’m working physically, a cup of coffee will keep me going until about 3pm. Part of my problem is that when I’ve eaten, I want to sleep … it must be the Leo in me …

  2. I’ll answer by comment TG, … can’t find any postcards… 😉
    I am a breakfast person, only not often a cooked one, I start with a few prunes, then a bowl of bran, with my own amount of added raisins and cranberries, with a little honey drizzled over the top, (no sugar) then a cup of coffee, (no sugar too and always coffee, don’t know why, as I then have tea at mid day, and coffee again on an evening .. no idea why just habit I guess) … I used to be one who couldn’t face breakfast, but I got over it,… and like you I don’t like to eat after 5 or maybe at the latest, 6 o’clock at night. I suppose you could say we’re all creatures of habit, and get that way just by chance…. as in, the prunes thing?… I travelled to be with my mother in 2004, dying in hospital in Ireland, and the lovely woman who looked after me in the guest house, Kathleen I think her name was,, gave me prunes every day,(other things too, 😀 but the prunes stand out for some reason) and I just seemed to carry on the tradition. strange how things work out… xPenx

  3. Porridge, fruit, and beetroot juice! That’s wintertime. In the summer I have some sort of oaty cereal with one of those concoctions which is supposed to lower cholesterol. I never ,ever, drink tea or coffee.
    Of course, if I’m away I have the full works, prefaced by the usual cliche `I never have a cooked breakfast normally’.

  4. OOOps, this was way down my email list found as I was deleting loads..
    Food is one thing I love, I’m not fussed about fancy cookery but do like food in most shape, form, colour and taste, except cooked carrots, yeeuk, and Scotch broth with all that pearl barley, I was made eat both during the war and puke at the thought. BUT, |I do love my breakfast, cereal of any sort with honey, then toast and marmalade and tea, which I make with proper tea leaves, lunch can be anything from beans and toast to a full blown, tea at 6 pm is toast with banana mashed on it and tea. as Pen said we are all creatures of habit. Food glorious food….tra..la..
