Fueling in the Mornings

I have never been someone who doesn’t eat breakfast. As a kid I always had breakfast and you never had to tell me that it was the most important meal of the day. Breakfast foods are still my favorite foods and I crave them almost all the time.

Buuuut I also feel like I eat an absurd amount for breakfast. Okay, I don’t honestly eat that much for breakfast, but it’s more than some people and I do wonder.

Like, I saw my friend eat just a banana and a little 130-cal energy bar before his 12-mile run on Saturday. By the time I left to run ten miles on Sunday, I had already eaten two slices of toast with peanut butter, a banana, and a Clif bar. Granted, he ran half an hour after waking up and I woke up three hours before my run.

I guess I just really hate feeling hungry? But I don’t know whether he was hungry after that little breakfast. Maybe he wasn’t. I don’t even know. It amazes me.

Do you normally eat breakfast? How much? Am I strange? My skating coaches used to tell my mom I needed to be eating more for breakfast, e.g. add some peanut butter toast on the side of my cereal and milk…

  1. I generally NEVER eat breakfast but that is mostly because I’m not big on breakfast foods except for bacon, lol. If I do eat breakfast it’s usually bacon with a smoothie or some such.

    I’m trying to get in the habit of eating breakfast but failing at it so I definitely think it’s a good thing that you grew up eating breakfast and continued on. I think the world would honestly be better off with people who’d wake up an hour or two before they had to leave instead of rolling out of bed the last possible minute and then rushing to work.

  2. I like breakfast! Breakfast food is yummy. I think that I actually eat just a bit less than you, and I was always told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I don’t understand how people can just run for miles and miles without eating breakfast.

    So even if you are strange, I think that you are doing the right thing.
