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.
