It’s time to expand breakfast choices


It has often been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It is pivotal to get up and start your day with a big, hearty breakfast.  Well then, why is it that breakfast is by far the most limited meal?

This has been something that has bothered me for a couple years now.  I was never a big breakfast person, never was hungry in the morning.  A few years ago, I decided it was time to start eating breakfast daily.  The question then led to what do I eat that is quick but also relatively healthy.

I thought I could wake up 20 minutes early and make some eggs and bacon everyday.  That did not last one day. An extra twenty minutes of sleep was more beneficial to me than slaving away in the kitchen right when I wake up.  I then thought I could make these eggs the night before then heat them up in the morning.  That is gross.  Anyone that reheats eggs will most likely end up behind bars one day for a much larger crime.  I obviously do not have the time to make waffles or pancakes and those are nowhere near healthy enough for my chiseled physique.  I settled on oatmeal, I have been having it every weekday for years now.  It is just fantastic.

This led me to this thought, why is breakfast so limited?  Realistically you have a couple options: eggs, bacon, waffles, pancakes, bagels, donuts, cereal, and oatmeal.  Sure, there are other options such as fruit or biscuits and gravy if you’re feeling southern.  Why is this so limited? Why, why, why?

There are many working Americans who simply skip breakfast based off availability.  There is simply no healthy option that can be heated up to eat at your desk. All the ones you don’t have to heat up are more dessert than breakfast.  Donuts should not even be considered breakfast. It is a travesty!

Think about all the different food options you can have for lunch/dinner.  The list goes on and on.  I am here to normalize these foods for breakfast.  If you want to wake up and have a chicken breast with potatoes for breakfast then you do that.  If you want some spaghetti and meatballs to start your day, well have at it Rick! (that is actually kind of savage, don’t do that).  There are plenty of lunch/dinner options that can be heated up in the microwave and had at your desk.

Enjoy your life people, eat whatever you want for breakfast.  I am sick of society telling us what we can and cannot have for breakfast.  Sorry oatmeal, it was a great run but I am having a steak for breakfast tomorrow.
