I sorta have two breakfasts cuz I usually eat 5x per day.



I always have coffee while I'm getting ready for my day...and I usually have some sort of toast with jam.



after I've settled at work - usually about 10:30am, I have cultured soy with hemp plus granola and some fresh fruit.



or a luna bar if I'm in a real hurry...



I have a little fridge in my office, so I can shop for my week and stock up! it makes it a lot easier!

some fruit - i.e apple with pb, banana, peach etc etc

a calcium rich product - soymilk, or cheese

an addiction - coffee or milo

Some of my favorites:



* Dairy and egg free whole grain waffles with fresh fruit or homemade blueberry preserves or maple syrup on top.



* Some kind of homemade vegan muffin.



* Fresh fruit and whole grain toast with almond butter.



* Yummy tofu scramble.



* Breakfast burrito with refried beans instead of the eggs.



* Hot cereal with vanilla soy milk and Turbinado sugar. I really like this organic one (can't remember the name, sorry) with flax seeds, oats and barley in it.

What are grits? Someone once told me the were the bits of corn left on the cob after the ears have been taken off, all dried out and mushed up. But I"m not too sure if that's accurate. Are they called anything else? I don't think I've ever seen them for sale....

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

I really only eat breakfast on the mornings when I have to be at work at 12:30...



On the mornings I have to be there at 7:45, I'll usually eat some oatmeal or a yogurt shake at the desk sometime around 11. I can't even eat when I first wake up. I feel too ill!!

- huge cup of coffee with lots of organic milk or soy milk

AND

- muesli with plain yogurt, organic milk or soy milk



If I can not make it out of bed in time (very seldom, since I treasure some quality time with my coffee in the morning), a banana instead of the muesli.



Soy milk when in the States - organic milk and yogurt when in Germany.

I used to eat oatmeal every single morning. Lately I've been enjoying soy granola with soy strawberry soy milk though.



When I am in a hurry I grab a power bar. Sometimes if I am extra hungry, I will eat that in addition to my oatmeal or granola.

They might also be called "hominy." Quaker makes grits, they probably carry them at your grocery store in the cereal/oatmeal section.

lol ya



i usually have puffed wheat cereal (mmm memories of sleepaway camp)

with soymilk and some fruit substance (applesauce, driedfruit stick, fresh fruit) Im a creature of habit and dont vary much but i go through phases, before this it was the Vegan Muffin phase and before that the Cream of Wheat phase. ALWAYS topped off with a huge mug of coffee. (hence the name)

today i had a homemade apple walnut mini muffin, 1/2 banana with peanut butter, and a small wild apple. i always have a half of a banana with something. just a habit



another great breakfast idea besides oatmeal (which is super good and cheap) is roasted kasha. it cooks just as fast as oatmeal and is really yummy and healthy. (gotta love the fiber )



oh and more about the banana: if you slice it lengthwise, spread some pb on it, put it back together, then cut it in 1/2 inch slices, you have a nice banana sandwich. they look so pretty

Sometimes, I'll make brown rice the night before, then in the morning, reheat and add some cinnamon sugar and milk. Sometimes, I add butter too.

Grits are coarsely ground corn. Other than being derived from corn, they have no relationship to hominy. They are simpler to polenta. In my experience, most grits are from white corn and polenta is from yellow corn.



Grits are eaten primarly in the southern United States.

Mmmm. The most important meal of the day....

I usually have one or more of the following, depending on how much time I have to spare:



Fruit

Oatmeal w s'milk

Toast with peanut butter and jam

Orange juice



On weekends I try to do something special and make pancakes, or tofu scramble or muffins. But I've been lazy lately!

A bap is the Uk word for an american "bun"! Basically just a roll that you can put burgers or salad or whatever in to.
