Breakfast is a ritual. Well, it certainly should be. It’s the most important meal of the day. After a night of sleeping and fasting, breakfast replenishes the body with nutrients that pump energy into our body. From the University of New Hampshire, breakfast
Having a breakfast ritual is part of my every day. There was a time when I ate oatmeal every morning, changing up a few times over several months and when I met friends at a restaurant for breakfast. That all changed when I was diagnosed with two types of eczemas. To help mitigate its affects, one of my new routines is to pay closer attention to eating well. And so I gravitated to a breakfast ritual:
2 days a week: oatmeal with raisins and walnuts. On the side is a banana, orange juice and a latte.
3 days a week: tall glass of green smoothie, one cooked egg on wheat toast. On the side, occasionally I’ll have a latte.
Pancake Saturday includes fruits, maple syrup, orange juice, and a latte.
Sundays: whatever my heart desires. Here’s the short list:
hash brown potatoes with onions and bell peppers and egg(s). On the side is orange juice and a latte.
toasted bagel, cream cheese, and salmon. On the side is orange juice and a latte
Egg omelette stuffed with a choise of goodies, such as mushrooms and onions or shrimps. On the side, my usual orange juice and a latte.
