Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater

Breakfast. The meal that breaks the fast. This seems to be the meal that gives people the most trouble when they stop eating processed food and start eating real food. No more breakfast out of a cereal box, or toast in the toaster, granola bars are out as are pop tarts, waffles, pancakes and toaster strudel. No orange juice, bagels or yogurt and granola. So, what the heck do you eat for breakfast?

Picture 

Eggs and its many variations, are the obvious choice, coupled with bacon or sausage. Omelets filled with veggies and cheese. The not so obvious, last night leftovers. I’ve been known to eat chili for breakfast or ground beef in a bowl. If you can’t wrap your head around meat for breakfast, try making healthy pancakeswaffles or muffins. And if it’s a hot bowl of spicy, pumpkin-y, nutty goodness you’re after, try this PUMPKIN PORRIDGE.
