What do you eat for a typical breakfast?


He / Him
Okay, this is pretty far afield from Geek Talk, but I just find it endlessly fascinating how people eat around the world.

What do you typically eat for breakfast?

On Weekdays, I tend to have a slice of sourdough toast (woo San Francisco, home of the sourdough!) with extra-chunky peanut butter, and a cup (or two) of coffee.

On Weekends, I sometimes make fried eggs with toast and avocado (woo California!), and I pair that with one to three cups of coffee (I love coffee).

He Who Lurks Beyond The Veil
Karelian Pies (a traditional finnish savory pastry, it’s a small rye crust filled with rice porridge), fried eggs and lemon juice is my usual breakfast.


I cook breakfast for my wife regularly (and sometimes the kids, but they are picky and we like good food). I make sunny-side up egg on toast, frittatas with broccoli, red pepper, ham, & garlic (and cheese, of course. I put cheese in nearly everything I make), or scrambled eggs with cheese and basil.

When I'm not making eggs, I make a chicken salad (chunks of boneless chicken breast or thigh with chunks of apple, carrot, cucumber, tomato, and cheese topped with yogurt and blueberries) or what I call "potato mush" (actually yam mashed with cinnamon, almond butter, cream, and maple syrup, mixed with chia seeds and topped with yogurt, blueberries, and walnuts).

Sometimes on weekends I'll make waffles. The kids will eat those without complaint!


My go to when possible is a jalapeno bagel with egg, pepper jack cheese, and either sausage or bacon. Sometimes a plain bagel with butter and cinnamon And a side of fruit to change things up. If I'm cooking at home then either an omelette or french toast.

Coffee. Black 20 ounces.

either English muffin with cheese and morning star vegetarian sausage or some kind of sweet breakfast cookie thing and a banana.

savory or sweet…about 300 calories either way


Relaxed Intensity
Scrambled eggs with some cream cheese mixed in, sausage, and an apple on rest days.
Granola, nonfat vanilla greek yogurt, and blueberries mixed in a bowl after fasted cardio on most other days.

Usually around 600-700 calories.


Well, that was fun

I very rarely eat breakfast, but if I do it tends to be a quick poached egg on a slice of toast.


Like Morrus I often don't bother, but if I do it'll be a bowl of cereal, usually honey-nut clusters. Milk in a separate mug to sip after taking a spoonful, because I hate soggy cereal.

That sounds AMAZING; something I'll be looking up. (I'm in the States, so not something I'm familiar with, but I am curious!).

Typically, breakfast burrito: scrambled or fried egg, sausage or bacon, some cheese, and veggies. When I make them in advance, I'll prep a dozen and freeze and microwave. Or "Greek" yogurt and granola or cereal.

On weekdays, I bring two granola bars with me to work - one is always oats & honey and the other rotates between chocolate chip, peanut butter chip, and banana. I eat those around 8:00, and then since that seldom fills me up until lunch I eat a hobbit second breakfast around 9:30 or 10:00, which is usually a sweet roll or something similar. (I just discovered cinnamon glazed Baby Bundt cakes by Hostess - so good!)

On weekends, my wife like Burger King's croissanwiches so I usually buy those for her, but I generally make do with two pieces of white toast with grape jelly. I sometimes supplement that with a banana.



I never used to eat breakfast but, since being diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic (sucks to get old), I've started on whole grain cereal with milk and some sort of home dried fruit (usually apples), with a small cup of no sugar added yogurt. On weekends I'll sometimes switch it up with a toasted whole grain muffin with cheese, an egg, and sliced meat like Montreal Smoked Meat, and a glass of milk.

A more traditional 'breakfast' of scrambled eggs, bacon, and brown beans is more of something that I would make for dinner.


Kashi Go Lean cereal, seed nuts (usually almonds or cashews) and fruit (usually dried apricots or dried cherries).

Plenty of fiber, plenty of protein and tastes pretty darn good.


Coffee. We don't keep food in the house except for what is specifically for planned meals. And since my wife and I have different morning schedules, we do not plan breakfast.

A year ago, probably some fruit I pick up on my way into the office.
This year, a bowl of cereal, or a toasted English muffin (butter and cheese, or peanut butter on it).
Next year... as we go back to office my workplace may be offering breakfast as a perk. We'll see what that entails.

Much depends on what we are doing. Either my wife bakes, or I put together some egg sandwiches.

On Weekdays, I tend to have a slice of sourdough toast (woo San Francisco, home of the sourdough!) with extra-chunky peanut butter, and a cup (or two) of coffee.
My wife and I love that sourdough place down near Pier 39, with the animal shaped breads. We go there whenever we visit.

On topic, I don't eat breakfast on most days, but when I do it's a bowl of cinnamon life cereal.

Aging Bard

I hate wasting food, so I often eat leftovers for breakfast. I cook breakfast when my wife wants a nice breakfast, and then there are lots of possibilities: British-style "fry-up", huevos rancheros, breakfast sandwiches or burritos, buttermilk pancakes or waffles, and berry buckles.


If I'm in a hurry, cereal and milk or granola and vanilla yogurt. If I'm not in a hurry, I'll make some oatmeal with honey, cinnamon, and orange zest. Or on special occasions, some homemade buttermilk biscuits with fried eggs and bacon.
