What do you eat for breakfast


Livestock Farmer
Don’t have anything before I start at 630ish, in for breakfast at 830.
2x sachets of microwave porridge with milk and a handful of sultanas, 2 slices of toast, 1 with cheese, other with jam and washed down with a large cup of tea.
Used to have a full English -- cereal with a drop of milk from the top of the tank , bacon, eggs, fried bread , etc . then toast with a goodly spread of butter and marmalade ,with a cup or two of tea or coffee . That was at 09.00 after we'd milked and done the early morning jobs . Best I can manage now is a bowl of porridge , and not a very big one at that !
As an aside , when our kids were younger they had a guinea pig out in the house yard or back inside if the weather got bad . He (she ? ) was also very partial to marmalade toast at breakfast time . He certainly wouldn't let you forget either , setting up such a squeak until it was delivered !

Do you know what a tapeworm is ?
Nothing for breakfast Monday to Friday, as I'm doing the 16/8 diet.

Lunch at 12 ish, with ryvita/crispbread/rice cakes and crisps, apple, banana & yog.

Then a cooked dinner at 6 ish, just not a massive portion. Then try to keep away from TV snacks till bed.

Weekends either bacon sandwich or 80/240 porridge for breakfast.
Every morning for breakfast is 3 Cumberland sausage ( thin) 2 large eggs and 1 slice of wholemeal toast, washed down with black coffee ,
Dinner is roast beef, cucumber and spring onion plus odd tomato, evening meal is cabbage, cauliflower, brocoli and peas, with either meat of fish, and more black coffee

5-6 weetabix covered in sugar then submerged in whole milk (November- April) one and a half breakfast bin lids ( cant eat two as I ain't a pig!) rest of the year when the cafe open.


Tin of tomato soup if I’m in a hurry, toast with beetroot or cucumber on for a treat and scrambled eggs and smoked salmon not as often as I’d like.
When we had cows , I had just a pint of tea at starting time , and then when we'd got the milk away , cows finished off , about 09.00 we had a proper breakfast . Coffee , corn flakes with milk from the top of the vat , bacon and eggs , fried bread , tomatoes possibly . And then just 15 minutes or so of quiet , before we started again . Best I can manage now is a bowl of porridge and a cup of tea , and I'm not too bothered about lunch either .
