As I think I’ve mentioned, I am not a fan of breakfast. The thought of a typical breakfast consisting of cereal, eggs, pancakes, or pastries early in the morning makes me sick to my stomach. But they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so I’ve been forcing myself to choke down breakfast foods for many, many years.
Last weekend I decided enough was enough. Who says I have to eat typical breakfast foods for breakfast? It’s not like there is a breakfast police! I searched online a bit looking for non-breakfast items I might like instead. Most of the easy recipes still included eggs, but I found a forum where people listed the non-traditional items they ate for breakfast. The list was limitless, from salads, to sandwiches and from pastas to leftovers. As it happened, I had just made a couple of batches of roasted tomatoes so I started there, branching out of the breakfast zone with a (turkey)BLT…
I had purchased some wraps for my lunches the previous week and used one with some left over chicken the next day. Very tasty and easy wrap.
Since, I’ve started to get the hang of it…
Black bean, cheese, and corn tortilla quesadilla.
Turkey and Swiss on toasted wheat.
Leftover party appetizers - Calabrese salami, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and crackers.
I still greatly dislike getting up in the morning, but it’s been a little easier over the last week or so knowing that I didn’t have to eat breakfast breakfast. Lunch breakfast makes me much happier.
What are you eating for breakfast?
