I’m not going to lie, I’m definitely not a breakfast person. It’s not that I don’t like eating in the mornings or anything, it’s just that I don’t really enjoy the typical “breakfast food” that seems to be considered normal.
I love waking up to a plate of leftovers, and I’ve even been known to make a single serve of pasta at 8:30am on a weekend – that kind of breakfast is great.
But the thing is, if you say ‘oh, I had carbonara’ then most people look at you as though you’ve either waken up with a hangover or are a weirdo.
And I really don’t get what the big deal is. I know that breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, and I know you should try and eat a decent meal most mornings, but the thing is; if you can eat a chicken stir fry for dinner and it’s considered a nutritious meal, than why can’t you have it for breakfast?
And besides, a lot of the most common “normal” breakfast options aren’t super good for you anyway. Think about it. Most types of cereal are full of sugar and don’t actually offer many nutritional benefits, and both bacon and sausages leave much to be desired.
What I will say is that eggs are great. They’re loaded with protein and are always a good option, but the problem is that people have labelled them as a “breakfast food” and they’re not often seen on the dinner menu.
If you’ve ever been stressed about what to have for breakfast or feel obligated to eat what everyone else considers “normal” then just take a deep breath and eat whatever you feel like!
It’s time to get rid of all these meal labels and just eat what we want, what our bodies need and most importantly when we feel like it.
I want to see what your first meal of the day is, whether it’s bacon and eggs or a burger – let’s just ditch the labels!
Please post your meals on social media and use the hashtag #ditchingthemeallabels so I can see what’s on your menu!
