Healthy Eating

Do You Like It?

When I asked my twitter friends which meal they dislike most the answers varied pretty evenly between breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Some didn’t like lunch because it was a challenge to figure out what to eat while some expressed their desire to overeat at dinner.  Good point about dinner, but a few of us (myself included) could happily live without breakfast.

It’s difficult to understand why someone who likes to eat as much as I do could be so annoyed by the first meal of the day, but I don’t care for it.  I’ve never been a breakfast person – though I like eating pancakes for lunch or dinner on occasion, but I always eat it.

I know it’s important to jump start my metabolism so I do, but breakfast has to be easy and filling.  Most mornings I eat Fage 2% Greek yogurt or a Special K chocolate protein shake with a banana.  And lately, I’ve taken a few minutes to poach egg whites to eat on toast with half a slice of cheese.

Which meal do you dislike most? Do you have a favorite go-to breakfast?

    Well. I'm not sure I've ever met a meal I didn't like. Okay, that was a joke. I really don't like to eat breakfast. I could easily go til 2pm before I eat.

    I don't, tho. And I'm starting to not dislike it so much. I either have a microwave egg. (I know, gross, huh? But I'm not at my culinary best in the morning.) Or steel cut oats that I've made a batch of and divided up into single servings the day or so before.

    Breakfast and lunch, really. I don't really like breakfast food so I mostly just drink a cup of coffee and have a piece of toast or a hardboiled egg. But lunch can be really hard. I never know what to eat. I was actually thinking about finding something I like and automating that meal- eating the same (or about the same) thing everyday. It would make things so much easier! 🙂

    Breakfast has always been really hard for me. I love breakfast foods – it's just sometimes hard to make myself eat at 5am (the time I have to get ready for work).

    During the week, I like something quick – but I've making myself get in to the habit of enjoying a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch, or a Flat Bagel (only 110 calories) with fat free strawberry cream cheese. If I do decide to eat on the run, I grab a Fiber One bar.

    I'm finding there's a lot of new stuff I can try for breakfast – and so I'm experimenting a little. I really like the Flat Bagels but I'm also (on the weekends) eating something like a multi grain English muffin with a poached egg or a slice of melted cheese. I'm getting there.

    I like Kashi go lean cereal with skim milk, cinnamon, and fresh blueberries. There's enough fiber in there to keep me full for quite awhile.

    Dinner is the meal of the day that I like the least. In my up bringing, dinner was always the meal where your family came together to talk about your day; however in my own little family now that I am all grown up, my DH works 2nd shift so it is always just DD and myself and I feel like something is ALWAYS missing.

    I don't think I have a meal I dislike most. Ha! If anything I look forward to most meals….hence my weight loss journey! LOL

    I really go thru spurts with breakfast foods, but lately I've been pretty obsessed with eating an English muffin (or 2 waffles) with a chocolate soynut spread I found in the organic/healthy section at the local grocery store.

    The answer to this question has changed fairly recently. The meal I dislike most right now is dinner. I just have no desire for dinner-like foods really, and I am just not as hungry for it.

    My favorite go-to breakfast is plain Greek yogurt with berries, walnuts, a sprinkle of granola and a drizzle of agave syrup. I like your breakfast options too. I also love a whole grain English muffin with peanut butter and banana.

    I am NOT a breakfast eater. Never have been. Even my Mom says I was like this as a child!!! I do eat it though but it is usually small! Maybe one egg and a piece of turkey bacon with a cup of coffee! But I have to eat it about 2 hours after I get up or it's a no go for me!!!!!

    i LOVE breakfast! even if i'm too full from eating late the night before, i always feel like i need breakfast. every morning i usually eat oatmeal mixed with nut butter and fruit, sometimes adding fage to the top. oatmeal and nut butter are the two foods i just don't burn out on.

    dinner is hardest for me because i never know what to eat and just don't plan for it like i do breakfast and lunch.

    I like all meals! I LOVE a good breakfast…I just don't have time for them! I LOVE a great dinner…I just get tired of cooking them! Am I complaining or what! I usually eat the same things for lunch over and over. You really stumped me with this question!!!

    Probably lunch – but only because it's such a pain to pack something to take in to work. My current favorite "go to" breakfast is 1 packet of instant oatmeal (low sugar variety), 1 cup of 1% milk, and 2 turkey sausages. I eat this pretty much every day and have yet to get sick of it!

    Breakfast is the meal I dont like the most but I have the hardest time with lunch, Im guessing thats b/c I never eat breakfast and end up binging at lunch due to starvation. When I do eat breakfast I notice I become hungry more frequently and even though its better for you, I still hate that feeling.

    I can't do anything sweet in the mornings. My go to is a couple of scrambled egg whites and a tablespoon of cheddar in a tortilla with some salsa. I have eaten that *every day* for months. Yum!

    I hate lunch tho! I get sick of sandwiches, and salads annoy me…I just need fresh ideas I suppose!

    I could live without breakfast. I have zero appetite in the mornings. However, I have been making smoothies for breakfast and that seems to do the trick.

    It's between breakfast and dinner.
    Breakfast because I rarely eat it. I have a weird work schedule. Sometime's I'll end up working 7am -1pm and over my dead body will I be eating something at 6:30 in the morning! haha. Dinner is tough because I'm more lazy in the evening. I've already spent all day on my feet, so the last thing I want to do is cook! Today I was lazy and we ordered pizza for our afternoon meal, but i am determined to cook dinner tonight!!

    Confession time – I don't eat breakfast – rarely ever. I hate it. Have no time for it and mornings are the busiest time for me. 11am comes fast enough. Terrible isn't it? I break the oldest rule in the book.

    I love breakfast! give me an egg Benedict over any fancy lunch any day. French toast? yes, thank you. Plus I MUST have my coffee. Healthy breakfast? Only Corn flakes or whole wheat toast with whipped cream cheese…bananas…home made fruit cocktail.
    I think the hardest is lunch but I don't necessarily hate it.

    I am not a breakfast person in a way that I can't eat too early. My body has to be awake in order for me to feel like eating something. Otherwise I feel sick if I eat. I usually eat greek yogurt (Fage or TJ's brand) with an apple & a banana. Sometimes I'll have coffee with fat free creamer but only when I need some caffeine.

    I find lunch to be boring. For years it was sandwich, carrots and fruit, you wonder why it was boring. Now, I'll do soup or leftovers, so it is better.
    I love dinner b/c it feels like better food.
    And, I like bkfst too: have you tried bagel flats? I have Laughing Cow on them or peanut butter. I also like spoon sized shredded wheat and add raisins, very filling, and I like steel oats with almonds and cranberries.

    Well, my first instinct was to say lunch, because I never know quite what to eat, but then, I realized I really dislike dinner, only because I feel like I have to come up with something healthy that everyone in the family will eat, and that feels impossible right now!
