I put everything but honey in a french press, fill it with hot water, wait for several minutes and plunge. Honey is stirred into the brew after you fill your cup. Sorry for a 2 year long response.
Meanwhile I've discovered another majestic food item - grilled cheese (made with homemade bread and young gouda). The secret is a spread or two of butter on the inside, and the freshness of the loaf.
That's the bread recipe - weekendbakery.com/posts/making-a-crusty-white-loaf
Also meanwhile I've spent over a year working in a coffee shop, so coffee is my pal now, and more often than not my breakfast is just a cup of coffee.
Cheers to all of you delicious sushis who keep this thread alive.
Eggs over easy and buttered toast. I like the ritual of cooking breakfast every morning. I find it hard to get up, but if I force myself to do the actions of standing up and cooking and eating a lot of food, I can really get myself moving for the day and start my day off!
I have a coworker who does this. He'd fit in well here.
I don't regularly eat breakfast but if I do I'll grab a bagel and create a sandwich with some sausage patties, cheese and hash browns. I don't like eggs.
half scrambled eggs usually. For those who don't know, instead of whisking in a bowl and cooking that, you crack the eggs directly into the pan, and let the whites cook for a bit before you stir things around. Produces this really fluffy kind of scrambled egg that only takes 2-3 minutes to make.
First thing I do when I wake up is drink a cup of black coffee, I always do this on an empty stomach. After the coffee I usually either won't eat until about lunchtime or so.
I don't because I can't get out of bed until the last second before I need to go to my daily endavor. It's actually kinda sad because I used to love breakfast when I was younger but I can't leave my bed any earlier.
Don't you find eating a lot of food makes you sleepy? I feel like I always feel less energetic after a big meal, so I try and eat less when I want to be more productive.
That's the usual postprandial somnolence, just accept it and enjoy the energy post-digestion you end up getting by a good meal.
First thing in the morning, anything I can find, usually oatmeal or stale bread. After my morning commute, I get a second breakfast fresh from bakery, usually something pizza-style or bread-rolls with wieners. After that, I eat a protein bar, just because I got to like the taste. I try to limit my coffee intake, but a good macchiato is too delicious to pass up.
probably your body trying to break down complex carbohydrates; have you tried cutting down on grain-based food?
I feel like fatty foods like cheese and stuff make me sleepy too, but I haven't really been paying attention tbh. Usually I just put off eating when I have work to get done immediately.
overnight oatmeal with almond milk, frozen berries and peanut butter
i usually like eating the same thing every day
I had coffee and some poorly fried eggs on toast :)
Fried eggs are a must for me, the other thing can be milk, cereal, yogurt or orange juice
Normally coffee, muesli with yogurt, and boiled eggs.
On weekends I'll make scrambled eggs and bacon.
I've never heard of grilled cheese with honey before. Does it go in the sandwich, or on the outside?
Lately I made some homemade gronola using dates, cashew nuts honey, cardammon, ginger and cinammon. I have that with coconut milk and it's delicious!
I've also brought a french press so I've been making that along with eggs + zaatar other days.
It's a comfy life~
I love homemade granola!!
Also I eat a lot of dried fruit compote which is also pretty comfy ~
It was my first time making it and I put like a bunch of random things like a tablespoon of ghee, and peanut butter.
I'm actually making some again today since I ran out. This time I'm using walnuts and this weird red looking fruit (cranberries?), my friend left them for me so I added it in last minute. Let's see how that turns out.
>dried fruit compote
owo I've never had that for breakfast before, now I want to try it too!
What sort of recipe do you use? Also post pics!
I wake up at 10AM anyway and my first meal can't be counted as breakfast. But usually when I actually wake up early enough for breakfast, I'll go buy milk and beef-filling bread on my way to campus. And on the days I'm not going to campus and wake up early, there's really no telling what I'd eat in the morning: it can range from normal cereal to grilled chicken to Doritos.
don't have camera so no pics, sorry
i have whatever tinned fruit with dinner the night before. might put tinned orange in a curry, make cherry pie, or just tinned peaches. then i take the juice and put some dried fruit in, usually apricots, prunes, raisins, that kind of thing. add some sugar, spices, depending on my mood, and heat rapidly. once it boils leave it in a simmering pan for ten minutes or so, then turn off the heat and leave it until morning when i'll put it porridge, or with oats or pancakes or something.
granola or muesli things also work well with it, but for best results the oats should be added to the compote after turning off the heat but still the night before.
Today I had doctors sausage and sourdough bread in a rush and felt horrible the whole day. I'll stick with oatmeal or canned fish and pickles, I guess.
i can't find the energy to make a proper breakfast so i typically just have coffee and maybe some toast
1 cup oats, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 2 scoops protein, 1 tbsp maple syrup, almond milk, microwave 2 minutes. Dash of cinnamon. Stir and eat.
Maybe throw a square of dark chocolate in once in a while.
wow sushi roll this is some next level fancy stuff but it also sounds very homey and comfy. it's also interesting how i can sort of imagine a slice of your life through your breakfast.
Normally it'd be coffee and a fag but thanks to the kung flu it's a.beer and a joint.
Hotackes with walnuts and some tea
My breakfasts vary a lot. I usually just have whatever I cooked the previous night, I use my slow cooker often so I always have stuff left over for the next day. This morning was my bacon and cabbage stew.
Ingredients for anyone interested:
1/2 medium cabbage
2 tsp parsley
1 tsp hot paprika
3-4 tbsp smoked paprika
2 crushed garlic cloves
4 bay leaves
3 small turnips
1 can tomatoes
2 tbsp butter
6 cups chicken stock
x amount of cracked pepper at the start (I just kept going until it felt like a good amount)
Salt to taste (just kept adding a tbsp or 1/2 until it tasted right)
Some form of egg, usually just fried but sometimes I'll make an omelette. Always some toast. Some bacon or sausage if I have it.
To drink I have milk or juice. Or rarely beer if it's the kind of day for that…
Breakfasts are my worst enemy.
I have to get up earlier to make them. I also never seem to have an idea what to make, apart from sandwiches, cereal and pancakes.
I have been exclusively eating cereal before the pandemic, because I could make it at work, saving time for sleep. It got quite boring, though!
What's your favorite cereal?
I rarely buy it but when I do I get sugary garbage like captain crunch because I wasn't allowed it as a kid
Probably this kind, but with a toffee or chocolate filling.
If not, then some made by Nestle, like Chocapic, Nesquik, Kangus. I don't like the company itself, but the cereal's good.
Cap'n Crunch look very sugary indeed!
I don't really eat any "breakfast foods", I usually just save some food from the night before and eat the leftovers. That said, I often eat my breakfast the night before…
Toffee filling? That sounds pretty good.>>669
Breakfast for dinner is fine too
I had a chocolate protein shake for breakfast, mixed it with almond and coconut milk.
Oatmeal with fruit every time on the stove or in the microwave. Bananas are always in it since they're cheap and also frozen berries, which are expensive. Sometimes I'll eat grapes with oatmeal, but never in the oatmeal. I definitely want more variety for my oatmeal. I want flax seeds, mangoes, strawberries, etc.
Cleanup is always the time crunch for me, especially when it comes to eggs.
These days I usually just start with a cup of soymilk. I used to have a cup of regular milk, but I learned that it was giving me brain fog, so now I only have regular milk in the evening. I have something else a bit later when my stomach wakes up more.
Had some really delicious toasted rye bread with brie cheese today, washing it down with some black coffee now. Feel ready to make the best of the day.
french toast, or just some sandwich with hard boiled eggs and pink sauce. maybe some sausages and cabbage, but that's about it. i eat the same stuff every day, except for special occasions when i feel particularly motivated and decide to make some pancakes or oatmeal.
