Recently we surveyed our members about their cooking and eating habits. Most of you spend 30 minutes or so making dinner but only five minutes making your other meals and snacks.

Some nights, you just don't have 30 minutes. When your schedule doesn't allow enough time to make a home-cooked dinner, why not serve breakfast for supper instead? Breakfast meals tend to be fast, and ours are healthy to boot. This week's downloadable and printable menu has seven nights of suppers that are as good for you at night as they are in the morning.

Keep reading to see the menu!

    I could have Breakfast anytime of the day Except AS SOON AS I GET UP. I like Breakfast around 11 or even beyond noon and into supper. - 1/5/2018   9:12:52 PM

    I was just thinking that & I don't normally eat omelettes but I was thinking? - 7/1/2017   6:45:54 PM
    We love having breakfast for dinner at our house! It's usually an easier option to prepare over regular dinner items :) - 9/28/2012   2:42:17 PM

    I was told once that people have a tendency to eat heavier dinners therefore it was better to eat dinner for breakfast. It was stated that if heavier meals are eaten in the morning people would burn off the calories throughout the day instead of trying to do it at night. I haven't tried it but I'm thinking of it. - 8/12/2012   12:49:39 PM

    I would have my breakfast for dinner only these days.

    I used to think having breakfast for dinner was a sign of an incipient restrictive-eating disorder.

    My breakfast used to be humongous (in volume, not calories)ólarge, substantial, the most important meal of the day. I made extra time in the morning for this seven-course breakfast. Because I woke up ravenous every morning.

    This had been for over 20 years - through periods of both high and low weights.

    Now that I have regained my weight back to what it had been in September of 2003 (not my lowest, by no means my highest--and a lot more muscle tone despite how old I am), I believe my large breakfast was part of my problem.

    Let breakfast for dinner be another experiment in managing a metabolism that is not clinically found slow, but ... is pretty slow ... - 6/25/2012   9:56:29 AM

    I like having "breakfast for dinner"; especially the meals that are more time consuming to prepare, I usually have more time for that in the evening vs. the morning. - 6/24/2012   10:28:20 AM

    We sometimes have breakfast for supper, but it's not a 5 minute meal...it's just a nice diversion. - 6/23/2012   9:34:49 PM

    My mom used to love breakfast and would have it at any time of day and she passed that on to her children. I even think eggs taste better the later you have them! - 6/23/2012   7:29:56 PM

    I had to laugh to see this blog today. My food tracker already has an omelet set up for dinner. I've never rigidly assigned certain foods to certain meals, and like the freedom to eat things when I want. - 6/23/2012   3:48:30 PM

    Breakfast is always cheaper to make than dinner. Patrick Duffy who starred on "DALLAS" said they always had family discussions at the breakfast table on the show because it was cheaper to make breakfast food than have them all around the dinner table. I always thought that was interesting. Also, eHarmony dating service recommends meeting a new person for breakfast & not spending the money on an expensive meal since it might not be a good match. - 6/23/2012   10:20:27 AM

    We have breakfast for dinner at least a couple times each week. Because we hardly ever get to eat breakfast in the morning because we all leave the house at different times, we make sure to share breakfast at the dinner table instead. - 6/22/2012   11:55:42 PM

    I have had two egg cheese and asparagus omelets for dinner, or a slice of egg white quiche. A fried egg also is a tasty dinner protein option. I also will eat dinner leftovers for breakfast. Meals are fairly interchangable. - 6/22/2012   2:15:06 PM
