I didn’t usually eat breakfast until very recently. During Janplan, I’ve probably gone to breakfast more times than I did the entire fall semester. Part of this may be due to the fact that Foss is open for breakfast now (meaning I don’t have to leave the building) but I like to think that I’ll continue this into the spring semester. Maybe when it gets warmer out I’ll make the walk to Dana in the morning.
I know everyone always calls breakfast the most important meal of the day, but I never really bought into it. When I wake up, the last thing I’m thinking about is food. I’m tired and all I want to do is go back to sleep. When I finally do get up, I’m much more concerned with showering, getting ready, etc. than I am about breakfast. “I’m not even hungry,” I always say to myself. “I can wait until lunch.”
I don’t even know why I started going to breakfast during Janplan. Admittedly, it probably has something to do with the fact that we talked about nutrition in class. But I think it’s mostly because I was unusually hungry one morning. Anyways, I went to breakfast and had a bowl of yogurt with a couple of scoops of nuts (from the ice cream area) mixed in and a glass of skim milk. I’ve been eating more or less that same meal each day during Janplan, but I’ve also been adding in a couple of whole grain bread with peanut butter. I’m no nutrition expert (as shown by my earlier post talking about goldfish) but this does seem like a pretty healthy meal to me. The yogurt is either low-fat or fat-free, I can’t remember. I will only drink skim milk, which I believe is healthier. Also, whole milk is think and tastes disgusting. Whole grain bread is obviously healthy, and (I think/hope) peanut butter and the nuts I put in my yogurt aren’t bad either. Someone might comment and tell me that I’m wrong and that what I’m eating is not healthy, and I hope that if someone does, it will make me look for healthier options. I can’t guarantee that though, especially if someone says something about the yogurt. Seriously, try it, it’s so good.
