I'm just not good at having breakfast in the morning!
I make sure I get up early enough to make Cooper a big bowl of porridge during the week and sometimes treat him to a cooked veggie breakfast at the weekend, but I just can't face food that early in the morning.
Water yes, food no!
- beans on toast
- crunchy nut cornflakes
- a cooked veggie breakfast
- tattie scones and beans
- poached egg on toast
- mushrooms on toast
- greek yoghurt, fruit and honey
I know! It's good for you. It sets you up for the day. People who eat breakfast are less likely to overeat later in the day. Hmmmmm! There may be something in that one.

My favourite this week has been a blueberry, apple and orange juice with added Baobab powder for extra nutrients and lots of ice to turn it into a more juice like texture. I've had that one twice. Once I have poured two drinks for me, I add a banana, some greek yoghurt and milk, whizz it up again and pour that into a sealed cup for Cooper to take with him.
Juicing is big at my work just now, well at least in my department. My friend Louise started juicing about a month ago. She brings juice into work too and feels great on it. Her favourite juice has tomatoes and chilli in it. I'll have to ask her for the recipe. Then there is my friend Genna who writes over at Blethering Boys. She has really gone for it and is doing a full juice detox. She has lost weight, looks great and is bubbling over with energy, so I think for the moment I shall stick with my juices and let go of the no-breakfast guilt.
What is a weekday morning like in your house?
Does everyone eat breakfast?
While we are talking breakfasts. I have to tell you about one of my eBay Collections.
In support of breakfasts everywhere I have created a board called The Breakfast Bunch were you will find lots of fun breakfast gadgets and kitchen fripperies.
I had such fun creating my 12 collections for eBay, I do hope you go over, have a look and follow any that catch your eye.
