because breakfast includes the word "break."

There's something so lovely and indulgent about cooking breakfast, setting the table, and really savoring a meal first thing in the morning. I tend to be an early riser--I love the stillness, the soft early light. It's one of my favorite times of day. And on these chilly snowed-in mornings, our long, extravagant breakfasts have been such a treat--a real lesson in mindfulness. I tend to rush through meals on my way from here to there, so I've pledged to change that--and to take more time for myself at the start of the day. (Even if what's in front of me is just a smoothie.)

I'm curious: Are you a big breakfast person? 
When do you take time for yourself throughout the day?

Umm I wouldn't say I'm a big breakfast person. I work Monday - Saturday but on Sundays I make a real breakfast for Ryan and I. Sunday is our enjoy the morning and enjoy a long breaks kind of day!

I haven't eaten breakfast in forever! Well, I did have eggs yesterday. But still. I don't why I don't. Probably because I don't have a lot of breakfast products to actually eat. But it is important to eat all three meals. It's good that you make time to do that!

Ever since I started working 8 to 5, I eat breakfast. I used to hate breakfast but am slowly coming around to it. I only like to eat sausage biscuits that you can pop in the microwave quickly. I found out this week that oatmeal does not appeal to me. :)

A nice, big yummy breakfast always helps start the day off on a good note. Usually I'm not good about this, but when Saturday roles around it's always nice to dig into some delicious banana pancakes!

i'm definitely a breakfast person! it's my favorite meal of the day. i'm not a morning person so having a big, delicious breakfast to look forward to always makes getting out of bed easier.

I'm a huge breakfast person! Always starving when I wake up and loove my cereal in the morning. But you are right, it's definitely a meal that's rushed through usually because i've sacrificed my time to doze in bed!

I can't start my day without breakfast... :) It's my FAVORITE meal of the day! I eat cereal during the week, but on the weekends, it's pancakes or omelets! YUM!

I LOVE breakfast, unfortunately, I don't have the time during the week to cook breakfast, so it has to wait until Sunday. Recently I've been taking time in the afternoon. I work in the mornings & have class in the evenings, so I take a bit of time in the afternoons to have a cup of tea and read or write.
