Breakfasts are a different matter. I like eat a very robust breakfast, while my wife's is smaller. And when it comes to eggs, I like more eggs for breakfast than she does and I have different preferences for what I add to the eggs. Our son, who likes to sleep as long as possible before arising for school, eats in the car or when he gets to school. Consequently, breakfasts are frequently more "made to order" for each of us.
I'm not going to give specific recipes for these pictures, just a description of the ingredients and their nutritional data.
Here is what I had for breakfast:
Sat fat: 11.4g
My wife enjoyed this breakfast:
Sat fat: 3.8g
Our son, the late-riser, enjoyed this meal on the go:
These meals take a little time to prepare (about 10 minutes.) I get up earlier than I need to so that I can make this meal, but I do have a few shortcuts. For the eggs, I saute the veggies the evening before so in the morning, I just need to warm them in the skillet and add the eggs. The lunch is simple to put together because I prep the veggies and fruit the night before, and only need to assemble the sandwich fresh in the morning. (Again, planning and organization are the key to enjoying life.)
We try to start our days with a meal together and end our day with another meal together. Life is too hectic to ignore the opportunity to start the day with a filling meal and some time with the important people in your life. It is relaxing to sit down to a nice breakfast and is quiet with only our dog whining a little (hoping that something will fall to the floor.)
Getting up a half hour early is worth it. I hope you are able to take the time to enjoy your meals, too.
