It dawned in me when reading the (half-hearted) porridge thread that i've not eaten porridge or even cereal once for breakfast during 2012. Bit weird.
I put my fair share of vegetables away (not for breakfast obviously), but tend to get inflamed/itchy gums when i eat fruit, possibly because of pesticides, idk, so i have to give that a swerve, too, meaning if i'm to eat in the AM i pretty much have to be a bit of a carb monster.
Being a permanently busy business-related businessman means i tend to only have a 5-10 minute window, too, though to be honest, sometimes i just start forgetting to eat breakfast at all and go for weeks without bothering.
Anyway, a typical week would be as thus...
1 day of wholemeal toast & butter (normally 2 rounds, occasionally three, never four or more, and never just one) + tea, 2 sugars.
1 day of toasted breakfast muffins with butter (always 2) + tea, 2 sugars.
1 day of potato cakes with butter (normally 1 of the big round ones, or 2-3 of the smaller ones. Talking about the flat variety here, not Irish potato cakes, they're huge, like) + tea, 2 sugars.
1 day of crumpets with butter (usually 3) + tea, 2 sugars.
1 day of teacakes with butter (normally 2) + tea, 2 sugars.
Saturday is always bacon butties (usually one big wholemeal bloomer/barm/whatever you choose to call it with around 4 pieces on, or two normal sandwiches, often three pieces of bacon per sandwich, bit o' brown, bit o'red, i'm just not uptight about that sort of shit) + tea, 2 sugars.
Sunday's always a full English. A proper 900-calorie job (1 fried egg or 2 scrambled, 2 bacon, 2 herby sausages, garlic button mushrooms, buttery baked beans, etc). Tend not to eat too much bready carbs with it, get my share during the week, but if there's a potato cake knockin' about i'll use it to wipe up the bean juice, sure, + tea, 2 sugars AND a nice cold glass of pure orange.
Anyway, tell me in detail about a typical week of breakfasts for you, assuming you're not all bad-ass rebels who don't do life to plan, or just ignore this thread completely if you feel it's the breakfast thread straw that broke the camel's back today, or get all WOAH! because you do something slightly different, or just comment on how two rounds of any bread product a day + a weekend full English means you'll almost certainly have a heart attack by the time you're 22, etc...
