So right now I’m sitting in the middle of a cafe, having just enjoyed what is my go-to international breakfast: oatmeal. I’m a little wary of overeating and indulging when I go overseas, especially in the United States, so I try and make a habit of making breakfast as light as humanly possible.
But it got me thinking – what do you all have for breakfast on a regular basis?
Over the last year patterns have started to emerge for me. A weekend breakfast might be a piece of toast with a bit of aioli, smoked salmon or a fried bit of bacon with an egg on top. During the week, it’ll either be nothing at all, a smoothie or perhaps a bit of yoghurt.
I got into a habit over several years of not having any breakfast. I used to work midnight shifts, and “breakfast” was effectively the meal I’d end up having before going to bed. If I ate breakfast, I wouldn’t sleep, and sleeping during the day was a pain enough as-is, so I just skipped it altogether. (The first meal of the day I’d end up having would be dinner, but it all shook out well enough eventually.)
How do you start your day?
