“I went to a restaurant that serves ‘breakfast at any time’. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.” ~ Steven Wright (Photo by Mathilda Tan)
If hitting the snooze button three times is more appealing than having a bowl of cereal, you might be a skip-breakfast sinner.
If you’re skipping breakfast to save calories, don’t bother. You’ll end up eating more for lunch or dinner because you went hungry all morning.
Perhaps the problem is this idea that breakfast should eaten as soon as you get out of bed and must consist of “breakfast” foods. Well, there are no breakfast rules. As long as you eat something in the morning, and you define “morning,” and that something means anything from soup to nuts, you can change from a breakfast sinner to a breakfast saint.
