Breakfast Again?

Friday, November 12, 2010

I know I eat breakfast every morning, but I also know that I am never hungry until nearly noon. I have spent most of my life not eating breakfast, but since I joined SP I have learned the reason for eating breakfast is too great to ignore and far outweighs the problem of not being hungry, so I eat.

That gave me a new problem; what to eat. Now that I have been with SP for several years, I still wonder what to eat. I know what I need, I just don't feel like eating it. I love high-carb, high-calorie breads like pecan rolls and I even have a favorite Bisquick recipe for them. I have tried many times to throw that recipe away, but I know where to get it so that seems to be a hopeless attitude. It's one of those things I have also learned is something I can't have. "I don't need it" attitude does not work for me, but "Poison" or "Killer food" works great. Same thing for D-Donuts and MickyD's sausage & egg breakfast. In fact the big D-Donut store and MickyD's have a huge sign across their doors (in my mind) that says, "KILLER FOOD".

Its great that I have learned to eat breakfast, I just wish that my stomach would at least anticipate this daily ritual by cooperating and making me feel hungry.

Drat! Always positive! Maybe tomorrow!

    i'm always hungry, especially in the morning. Especially in the early morning, say 4am. i can't imagine not being hungry until noon. Exercising tends to make me more hungry.

Putting a mental label, such as "killer", tends to put things in perspective. Nothing tastes THAT good.

    I love the "killer food" analogy over Micky D's and D-Donuts. I like Fiber One Cereal .. it's pretty good!

    I have found that eggs are about the only food that helps me. Like you I spent years ignoring breakfast and now I still have a hard time eating in the morning. I've found that sometimes, I just need to put it off until the commute to work. As for your recipe, is there a way to "lighten" it up and still keep the taste?
