What's the Fat on Breakfast?

For some reason I have to start my day with a high fat breakfast. If I don't then I can't make it to lunch and I just don't feel right. I could eat a plate of veggies for dinner and be fine, but for some reason I need that fat in the mornings like some folks need coffee. So I found this article very interesting:

Bacon or Bagels? Higher Fat at Breakfast May Be Healthier Than You Think


  1. excellent article. the study itself was well done, as well, by Dr Bray et al.

    i definitely tend to eat more carbs than protein/fat in the morning (7am), and usually am ready to snack by 10am, eat a small lunch and chow down at supper. oops :) i should try getting back to eggs in the morning instead of toast and apples...

  2. What exactly do you eat for breakfast?

  3. For breakfast, the first thing that comes to mind is "trimmings" (LOL). I make bento boxes for my sons lunch in the mornings. I use cutters to cut his cheese and meats into shapes and nibble on the trimmings. I have a smoothie a few mornings a week made with whole milk yogurt and fruit. Also bacon or sausage and almond flour waffles (I don't know that they are high fat though). On the weekend I fix eggs with breakfast or have them when we go out to eat.

  4. my friends are not a breakfast before going to the office. I always breakfast. but I'm confused, why not go down but my weight a little breakfast. Do you have any ideas for my breakfast?

  5. If your up for a salmon or hamburger steak smothered in salsa first thing in the morning that's probably the best time to eat it. Some folks want more traditional style breakfast food. Here's s few links to breakfast recipes:
