1/2 cup oatmeal
2 tsp ground flax seed
1 cup frozen berries
1 cup water
Mix all in bowl, microwave for 2 minutes, stir, microwave again for 30-60 sec.

That's what I have everyday. It's fast/easy and healthy, and tides me over to lunch most of the time.

Right. So you're going to hoof it down to Trader Joe's in your dressing gown to pick up the exotic ingredients that the program dictates. Here's what I got....

Roasted Kale and Chicken with a side of Fermented Pulled Pork and Muskrat Jam

Really?

Native Texans don't wear 'dressing gowns'. I can't speak for the imported ones.

This one sounds good:

"Stuffed Veal and Banana Muffins with a side of Barbecued Pineapple Gravy"

I'll lay that one on DW tomorrow morning and see where it takes me..

Tend to skip breakfast too. Depending on time I get up it's either lunch time or around 4 pm i start eating.

Usually the first thing is a Coke, and unless there is a reason to nothing for several hours. Or not, if I'm hungry. When that happens I just get whatever is available - sometimes it's as simple as a couple of fried eggs and nothing else, or leftover beef stew, or salad with cut up grilled chicken on it and the like, or an apple and a banana or....

I just never paid much attention to what time of day I ate what meal. If it was steak & potatoes for breakfast and cereal for dinner that was and is okay with me.

Oh, pardon me. My (European) roots are showing. It is also known as a bathrobe. Or a housecoat.

I just watched "Secondhand Lions" last night, those old coots were the real deal, lived in Texas, and used dressing gowns.

So you think Hollywood told the fictional story accurately?

But of course. Everyone knows that when it comes to culture, Hollywood always shows people as they truly are, everywhere in the world but especially around the US.

Sounds like my DH. He goes on different eating patterns every few years (although he has no say about dinner unless I'm out of town). For the past few years he's been eating "dinner" food (either leftovers or a frozen entree - Lean Cuisine or Kashi) for breakfast. Several years ago he went through a phase where he ate sandwiches for breakfast (turkey and jalapeņo jack on rye) every day.

I like breakfast to taste like breakfast, myself.

Cherry Coke or Dr Pepper impart a nice cherry-ish taste to go with the craisins and it is rather sweet. It's probably best to use half-water and half-soda-pop. Otherwise it tastes like oatmeal with walnuts and craisins. Or cherry-chocolate-y if you use the chocolate-flavored whey protein.

Generally eat a LCHF diet so 99% of the time:
3 eggs scrambled or fried with real butter
Bacon (or grass fed beef leftovers)

Occasionally will drink a cup of coffee with half & half but have cut way back on caffeine. Sometimes will add a banana or berries with a handful of walnuts or pecans.
