This is a question that I always get, so I figured I’d hand it over to y’all, because my answer’s so unfun.
What do I eat for breakfast? A grapefruit. A lonely grapefruit, occasionally some sunflower seeds and about 32oz of water. [insert pouty face] Not very interesting.
I chop my grapefruit in half, then in quarters, then I split the quarters into halves. This way, I’ve got small pieces that I can eat with my hands, it takes a while for me to eat, and I can leave breakfast feeling satisfied and ready to hit the road. I can also hit the road with my grapefruit if I need to do so. Then again, since I eat every couple of hours, it fits my schedule perfectly.
I am often asked, “Well.. if I’m supposed to give up my Lucky Toast Life Crunch cereal, what am I supposed to eat?”
For starters, I think it’s OK to go with something slightly carby for breakfast. Not sugary sweet, but something naturally rich in fiber and maybe even with a little protein to help you feel full longer. Oatmeal (not those good-for-nothing packets, either), a peanut butter sandwich, granola, fruit… the possibilities are endless! And since sometimes we all need a little help coming up with creative ways to avoid the cereal aisle, I’m opening it up to you!
