I've never been a great breakfast eater and got by on a couple of slices of toast for years. I experimented briefly with museli, but I find it too heavy for that time of day. Since me 'n' the wench have gone on our health drive, I've finally discovered a nutritious breakfast that I actually enjoy! I have a rice cake, spread with a thin layer of cashew butter and almond butter. I then lash on a thick layer of dark tahini. I sprinkle some sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds on top of that, and then finish the whole thing off with a bunch of alfalfa (or other) sprouts. Bloody yummy! I'm addicted to 'em now! After I've munched through that, I wash the whole thing down with a mixed fruit smoothy.

So what about the rest of you? What do you eat for your breakfast?

Oooo oooo, that sounds like a great breakfast Stu! I really like breakfasts. They're my favourite meal of the day really, which goes with mornings being my favourite time of the day I spose.
My breakfasts vary a lot.... At the moment though I have fruit and seed muesli (i'm allergic to some nuts) with added raisins, dried fruit, or tinned fruit, and chopped banana or orange. If i haven't had a banana in the muesli I have a hot one instead. And I have all that with rice dream, which personally I like best out of the milk alternatives i've tried. Delicious :D. I drink herbal tea or juice, or both
Then if i've got time i'll go on to eat a piece of sunflower and linseed toast if we've got that in, with Tahini on it, and added seeds... Oooh or I sometimes have goats cheese and chutney. Or just chutney, which is more acceptible to my milk free attempts.
Then if there's an apple i'm not allergic too i'll have that.
Oooh and if there's any dark chocolate around or equally cheeky things, I tend to demolish them.

Wow, I wrote a lot about breakfast :eek:

i had rice crispies today. i only ever have toast or cereal. i'm very boring when it comes to breakfast, but as i'm not a morning person, it's a miracle that i function well enough to make those!

Oooo you healthy bugger you!! Dok I mean :D

We sprout our own alfalfa, and I love it to, as it has so many good things in it.

I usually have toast with Cinnamon on it (yum yum!!), a cup of tea or redbush, or cereal for breaky :)

I usually have porridge and honey, only recently discovered the joys of this :D .

But today we had to try a new cereal that I was sent as a product trial for research, A bit too sweet for me, so back to porridge tomorrow.

Beans on toast is a weekend treat

I ate yogurt for breakfast for a while, when I got bored of cereal. At the moment I've settled on Honey Nut Cornflakes, but I'm bored of that already ;) I'm gonna start cooking omelettes now instead, maybe with a good fruity smoothy to :)

Usually just toast and coffee. Its funny, I really can't do without my cup of coffee even though I only drink decaf, and I'm really cranky until I get it. What else is in it I'm wondering! At the weekend though, I love a faky bacon sarnie with loads of brown sauce and fried mushrooms. Mmmm

At the weekend though, I love a faky bacon sarnie with loads of brown sauce and fried mushrooms. MmmmOh yeah! I should start a new thread just about weekend breakfasts! I love a facon buttie on shitty white bread with lashings of butter. Or (vegan police avert your eyes now) a fried egg on toast. Or a full cooked veggie breakfast. Earth Whirler cooks a mean fry-up and does the best fried eggs on the planet! What's life without living on the edge once in a while, eh? :D

I combine my breakfast with dinner, as i usually have it around dinner time. I'll have sandwiches most of the time, like houmous and salad, avacado and tomato, or toasted pb and banana. Sometimes i'll have cereal, or toast, or porridge with BSMs.

Fake bacon?! :vomit: That stuff is bad! Unless you've found some stuff that's shockingly improved since I tried it last. Where du get yours from?

stardust
03-03--2006, 06:18 PM
asda's own brand veggie stuff rocks! tis always much cheaper than main name brands, tastes loads better, and in a lot of cases, they dont put eggs into stuff, unlike main name brands - which is great now i'm vegan.

once my dad cooked me some asdas sausages and i accused him of feeding me real meat coz i wouldn't believe they weren't fake. even made him go get the packaging out the bin to prove it!

peace and love

Fake bacon?! :vomit: That stuff is bad! Unless you've found some stuff that's shockingly improved since I tried it last. Where du get yours from?Depends whether you expect it to be anything like bacon, and whether you expect it to contain anything like nutrition. The best brand was Morningstar, but they're no longer available. Next best is Tesco own-brand.

Aunty Al

Didn't know Morningstar had disappeared altogether, thought that it was just that Tesco was to busy promoting its own. I like the realeat stuff though. Talking of full cooked veggie breakfasts, the Morrisson's cafe near us does a mean one for a real treat! The best used to be a pub in Liverpool (Black horse & Rainbow or Liverpool brew pub for those in the know) but they went upmarket and the food went down to tiny portions, huge prices and no breakfasts any more.

Atomik

Didn't know Morningstar had disappeared altogether, thought that it was just that Tesco was to busy promoting its own.Nah. Basically, the company that distributes them went GM-free, and Morningstar couldn't guarantee their product as GM-free, so no more UK distribution.


The best used to be a pub in Liverpool (Black horse & Rainbow or Liverpool brew pub for those in the know)I remember it well. Spent many nights getting drunk there back in the day. Nice, big brewing vats in the window and an ace kebab shop over the road that used to do the greatest bhaji kebabs with a chili yoghurt dressing for 1.50. And the kebab shop stayed open until the pub kicked out at 2.30am. And 2.30am was well late, back in the days of steam. Know worra meeeeeeen? :D

Don't worry we have the odd fry up to :D me and Lewis have the vegan version with tofu instead of egg, while Luke and Stonsey have eggs but we all have fried bread, veggie sausages, hash browns, baked beans, mushrooms and fried tomatoes.... oooo I am making myself hungry now <tummy rumbles as she hasn't had dinner yet> Yup don't hurt to have the odd fry up, and if it is veggie, done in sunflower or olive oil ..even better!!

mm, love brekkie....

usually 2slices of toast, sometimes a piece of fruit too depending on how times going along.... this is when ive got lectures.... except when i only have an hour of lecture then going home anyway so i have breakfast afterwards and get up later... bad, but hey...

otherwise it might be some cereal of some description, some sort of fry up, some sort of fry up on toast, a huge bowl of fruit salad stuff...
depends on how i feel....

and i never seem to really drink anything at breakfast either... unless ive been on the alcohol the night before... :whistle:

.... or i sleep straight through til lunch time and have a sandwich or something instead :D

As much as I really like the facon stuff, it's bloody full of hydrogenated fat! So it really is a rare treat.......The other thing Dok failed to mention was the healthy cooked breakie that he sometimes cooks - cheese & black pepper crumpets with scrambled egg, raw baby tomatoes, fried mushrooms & red onion, sprinkled with parsley. It's bloody crazy that in Glastonbury, no cafe makes veggie breakfasts like we do! One cafe tried to serve a vegan breakfast with quorn sausages. Twats. :rolleyes:

I rarely have breeakfast, at least at breakfast time - usually i eat around 11 instead.

But one thing i've discovered recently im really enjoying, and i totally made it up myself (tho something similar has probably been done before :) ), and that is:
wheatabix in milk - wait for it to go slightly soggy - then scatter mixed seeds ontop - i have a mix of sesame, poppy, sunflower, pumkin and hemp - and then sprinkle cinnamon or mixed spiced over.
yummy! :thumbup:

At the moment i love soggy weetabix! But i stick mine in the microwave with the milk, until it's hot and soggy, then i put a little cold milk on it, and some sugar. It's yum.. like a different tasting porridge.

Today a full vegan breakfast at The Whale Tail (http://www.10000things.org.uk/whale_tail_cafe.htm), mushrooms, baked beans, fake sausages, sliced fried tofu, real toms grilled, grilled # browns, 3 slices of toast.

At home, if I'm up in time, just a modest version of the above, unless I'm having a porridge day, made with soya milk and with sultanas in too.

:patch:

On the groundfloor beneath our Whale Tail is Single Step Wholefoods (a workers' co-operative established 30 years ago!), from which all the Green & Blacks products have recently been removed, except for the Maya Gold (http://www.greenandblacks.com/story.php) which was / is G & B's only Fair Trade product.

The reasoning is that

1. there are plenty of Fair Trade chocolate-type alternatives available and


2. G & B have been taken over by Cadbury's (not a totally awful firm like Nestle (http://www.babymilkaction.org/), but they are), a big phat multinational and it is felt that Cadbury's intention in taking over G & B's was to buy for themselves a degree of respectability and thereby to hoodwink uzz, the greenward consumers.

I always eat cereals mixed with other cereals, I guess it's just one of those odd things that families hand down.

This is probably my favourite breakfast cereal:

Ever tried it?

You must!

Really!

The packet / box is annoyingly difficult to open and close, and has been so for decades.

That does sound yummy, but it's something I'd be more likely to eat for lunch. I don't eat much for breakfast, usually just a piece of toast with marmalade or fruit spread - Sunwheel pear and apricot is my favourite - or a small bowl of cereal - Jordan's maple and pecan crunch this morning. I seem to need something sweet for breakfast, I never eat anything savoury and I couldn't face a cooked breakfast at all.

I heard about this diet...you eat only fruit up until lunch time...after lunch you can eat what you want, but you cant eat protien and starch together....

You are'nt allowed to eat anything after half 9 at night.

Its not so much of a diet, more working with your bodies natural rhythms.

I posted here because, everyone seems to enjoy fruit smoothies in the morning. Fruit is supposed give you lots of energy, as long as it isint mixed with Tea/Coffee, wheat..ect..
