I eat a smaller breakfast that is very healthy.  Either oatmeal or some type of fiber-rich cereal.  Load it up with blackberries, bananas and blueberries.

I eat a fairly but not burly sized breakfast to start the engine running.  It helps that I wake up hungry!!

What do you usually eat
If it's not too early and my wife is up, she'll fry me three eggs over easy and I usually eat them with grits on weekdays.  Just one slice of wheat toast for soppin'.  And if they're ripe, a whole sliced tomato with salt and pepper.  Or, if they are ripe, sliced avocado with fresh squeezed lemon with salt and pepper.

If it's early.  I'll take three hard boiled eggs with an avocado and a banana.

I have a bad habit of usually skipping breakfast and just drinking 1- 2 cups of coffee.  If I do eat...it's a bowl of Raisin Bran or maybe a cookie.  I've just never really been a morning eater.

I have always loved huge breakfasts!  My husband used to laugh; when we first got married I would make two fried eggs, two pieces of toast and two bowls of cereal.  All for me. :D ( I worked a strenuous job then.)  I don't eat that much now but still do it justice.

I hate eggs but love a big breakfast.
As a kid, the family used to go out for brunch after church OR dad would cook these massive, delicious meals fit for the halls of Valhalla.

It's breakfast time now. I think I'm going to go eat like Thor.

5 days a week it's 3/4 of a cup of a whole grain oat cereal, with the recommended amount of milk (usually 1%) and a teaspoonish amount of sugar. The weekends are all over the place. Yesterday it was 2 eggs, a piece of toast and some bacon (not a rasher but a goodly amount).

I was lucky growing up. My mom was always a very good cook but dad's even better. Our next door neighbor's kid (Pat) who was around our age used to show up at our place for Sunday brunch. He'd come by himself.
I still remember his doofus smile...

Pat: "Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Blaze! This is great! I don't usually eat a big brunch like this at my house."


Felt like an episode of Leave it to Beaver. :lol:

Afterwards, my bro ChristophBlaze who was Pat's age & pal would rip, "Why don't you stay home and eat your own food?!" :lol:
I guess getting teased was the price Pat paid for having a good meal. :lol:

I enjoy (vegetarian) typical breakfast fare, but am seldom inclined to eat early in the morning.  Instead, I start my mornings with a protein shake blended with berries.

Yeah, they're actually quite delicious! Sometimes I'll slip in a little cocoa powder if I'm feeling extra decadent :lol: --it's pretty heavenly when combined with raspberries or cherries in particular.

During the week on days I go to work and Saturday, usually a small bowl of cold cereal, a piece of toast or other bread, half an orange and coffee.  On Sundays, a cup of Joe before I take Rocky to the dog park.  When I get back, Rocky gets fed, and then I chow down.  Eggs over easy,or an omelet, breakfast meat, half an orange and more coffee.

Every three months, about a week before I have a follow-up exam by my primary physician, I need to have full fasting blood work done. After that's done, I'm famished, and go out to get my grub on.  Either head to the Awful Waffle for an All-American, or the local deli for corned beef hash and eggs, which includes a bagel and a small bowl of oatmeal.

Can't live without breakfast.  I'm shite for the entire day without it.
