In the country where there is no Breakfast

I think I understand most food behaviors that I have been exposed to. But there is one I just don’t seem to get.

When people do not eat breakfast.

I wake up starving and have to hold myself not to eat 2 portions of my scrambled eggs or birchermüsli (I have even googled what a normal breakfast size is, since I am pretty sure mine is way above normal.).  The only reason why I sometimes pushes my breakfast a head of me (like an hour or so) is because I can not make up my mind what I should eat that morning. If I have to be at a meeting early I set my alarm 30 min earlier. Easy peasy. Noone messes with my breakfast.

Today a Swedish morning paper wrote that only 1/3 of the Swedish grown up population actually eat Breakfast. Chock. And the ones that do inhale their bowl of granola in an average of 3 minutes. Often they eat as they dress, do their make up, pack their bags or whatever. Not that I should care.

I just do not understand why so few Swedes haven’t found the charm in making a feast out of this meal. Especially since they put so much effort into every other dish, cocktail, bread, glas of wine or whatever they are into right now. And I am sure that I am not the only one that have a pretty low blood sugar in the morning that I like to rise.

However, I guess I do not have to understand everything.

But seriously, the only meditation that ever worked on me must be to sit in peace and eat my breakfast.

    I’m your breakfast soulmate) For me it’s easier to wake up in the morning, if I know there is something special for my breakfast, or just something I simply love! It’s the only meal I can’t skip!

    I’m so with you, breakfast is the reason I get up in the mornings.

    Happy Holidays! I hope that you are enjoying some charming holiday breakfasts.
