Eat Breakfast

If you’re already in the habit of eating breakfast, you can move on to something else.

If you don’t eat breakfast, I’m simply going to say, you should.

For years, the only time I’d eat breakfast was when I was at a breakfast meeting, or when I was a guest somewhere and breakfast was made for me. Like at a bed and breakfast. Or my parents’ house.

Last month, I started eating breakfast every day and I feel better. Much better.

It doesn’t have to be a lot. Generally, my breakfast is two eggs with a little cabo southwestern chipotle powder sprinkled on. Pesto is good, too. I boil the eggs, and while I’m waiting for the eggs to boil I have either a banana or a grapefruit. If I eat a banana, I end up with soft-boiled eggs. If I go with grapefruit, cutting the wedges apart takes a little longer and I get hard-boiled eggs. And hot chocolate.

I’m not saying breakfast is a moral imperative. For years, I scoffed at the “most important meal of the day” finger-waggers. I don’t pretend to know the science of it, I’m not a nutritionist. I’m just saying, I feel better. You might feel better, too. Who doesn’t like to feel better?
