"Grown-Up Food" for Breakfast?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
In a recent thread on meatloaf, I noted that it often tastes better on
sandwiches the next day, and that I would reheat it by frying it in its
own fat or with a touch of butter.

So this morning for breakfast, I had refried meatloaf and eggs. It
occurred to me that I often eat "nighttime food" for breakfast: Pasta
and meatballs, all manner of casseroles, grilled cheese and roast beef
sandwich, hamburgers, etc etc.

Is there anything wrong with eating this stuff for breakfast? (For the
record, I only eat 2 daily meals, breakfast at about 6:45 and supper at
about 5:15.) I crave it, it tastes good and it gives me sufficient
energy. Will it wreck my stomach or anything, or should I switch to
eggs, cereal, pop tarts, etc.?

Pop tarts? that will wreck your stomach, as well as your teeth.
Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Lord and supper like a Pauper is
how the saying goes. I'm a two meals a day man also, and I can't see
how that sort of food will wreck your stomach. My problem is eating a
huge meal only a couple of hours before bed. Not good for the
digestion.

Different strokes for different folks. My oldest brother used to eat
leftovers for breakfast. My wife loves bacon and eggs, or cheese omelettes,
cold cuts and cheese, all protein and fats. My system doesn't function well
on food like that, so I eat oatmeal or Shredded Wheat for breakfast.

In case this is a serious question, I'll answer it: There's nothing
wrong with eating appropriate amounts of nourishing food at any time of
day that fits your schedule and appetite. If it doesn't make you feel
ill, there's nothing wrong with it. There are people who eat rice and
soup for for breakfast and skip the poptarts. Others eat bacon.
Meatloaf and other "dinner" food isn't all that different.

why would ANYthing be wrong with it? Bacon and eggs (traditional
breakfast foods) aren't any better for you than leftover meatloaf.
Common sense, please!

I seriously doubt that many people ask their doctor for a recommended
diet. Don't know why you would think that's a 'normal circumstance.'
For that matter, I am sure there are many doctors whose knowledge of
diet and nutrition is lacking. -aem

I cut my teeth on cold pizza for breakfast back in my slumber party days!
I've been an advocate of "adult" food in the AM ever since . . .

This question was answered some years ago, on StarTrekTNG. The
Irish transporter guy and his Japanese-descended wife grew up on two
different planets so they were chatting about what makes a good
breakfast. The Irish guy started describing a big heavy bacon-and-eggs
breakfast, and his wife looked appalled and said,
"You ate that for *breakfast*?"

Eggs don't spoil in one days time.

We have bacon, eggs hash browns for supper....with toast! And
sometimes we sneak a little vodka in the OJ. It's not just for
breakfast any longer.
