People who prefer non-traditional breakfast foods in the morning- are you one of them?

Not all cultures eat cereal, pastry, eggs, or fatty meats and/or potatoes in the morning.

I like a miso soup or vegetable soup or ramen for breakfast or maybe some white rice with pepper on it. I’ve been known to eat salad for breakfast or some of yesterday’s leftovers.

Anyone else like this or know people who are?

I don't eat traditional breakfast foods for breakfast. I prefer a small serving of pasta with vegetables.

I’ll eat leftovers if they’re better than the alternatives on hand and are compatible with coffee.

R1 that sounds interesting... do you dress with oil/butter or sauce?

OP, I'm not big on breakfast in general, but I always thought a restaurant concept that focused on less traditional (in the Western sense) breakfast foods could be interesting. Say, a Pan-Asian breakfast and brunch concept which served traditional Thai, Chinese, Korean, Malaysian and Vietnamese breakfast staples.

Does cold pizza count?

I heat leftover pizza in a preheated 350 oven for 12 minutes. It's so much better than cold or microwaved.

R8 Cold pizza sure does. Also love cold spaghetti on a sandwich.

Miso soup is not uncommon in Japan for breakfast.

Hummus toast on English muffin is good. I like to put feta cheese and maybe some of those sun dried tomatoes that come in the bag. Top it with an olive oil or balsamic drizzle.

Yes. Breakfast is open to any entree and closed to sweets except pie and proper crumb cake.

Today I had Fritos and salsa for breakfast. Tonight I'm making chili, some of which I will undoubtedly eat for breakfast tomorrow.

Sometimes I'll eat cold pasta, if it's already sauced. But usually I like to reheat it. Pizza must be reheated, in the oven, if you're me.

Intermittent fasting. I don't eat until after 3:00pm.

Sometimes I ear sandwiches or breakfast, not egg-and-bacon sandwiches, but regular sandwiches with cheese or pb&j or something.

It's considered normal in South America, every hotel breakfast bar there has sandwiches fixings. And cake.

by Anonymousreply 37May 25, 2023 9:52 PM

Cake is a good breakfast food, r37. But it has to be good cake.

by Anonymousreply 38May 25, 2023 9:54 PM

I'm not always consistent, but the point/practice of intermittent fasting is to have a period of 15-20 hours every day without food.

There was research demonstrating its efficacy, then research challenging that, then more research confirming its benefit.

What's not in dispute, lowered total calorie intake correlates to longer life. And an empty stomach and hunger is good for my soul.

I never want to eat anything soon after I wake up. I get a large coffee with milk (no sugar) at the corner deli on the way to the subway, but generally don't eat a meal till around 1 pm.

Why don't you make coffee at home, r42? So much better. So much cheaper.

by Anonymousreply 43May 25, 2023 10:43 PM

I've never made my own coffee, and at 60 don't plan on starting. As long as it is very hot and caffeinated I'm good with it, and at 2 bucks for 18 oz I'm fine with the cost of the convenience - the milk would probably go bad before I got through a quart as well.

I could have written every word of this. It's just coffee and water for me until lunch: "I can't imagine putting food on an empty stomach."

The Vietnamese consider pho a dish for all meals. If I had to eat breakfast it would be something like that: a savory with lots of protein.

I like chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream for breakfast (left over from the night before).

The day after Thanksgiving, I like to have leftover stuffing and gravy, turkey, and potato salad. I don't really like ham, but I do like leftover Thanksgiving ham with eggs, or a ham and cheese omelet.

Cold brew or iced coffee with a nice bowl of weed

Something savory if hungry - definitely not breakfast food. Ramen, leftovers (Chinese or Thai for breakfast is fabulous)

I do enjoy some breakfast food, just not at breakfast time. This irks others, I do not care.

I will eat waffles for dessert, cereal is great stoner food that covers my munchies well, I’m an egg slut and will eat them constantly but maybe only soft-boiled in the morning. Put a runny egg on anything and I will give it a go

Hey, R58. Your post reminded me of when I lived in Budapest. Years ago. A cafe I frequented featured an “American Breakfast” on its menu. As you’d expect, eggs, toast, bacon, etc. But I never tried the “Hungarian Breakfast”: espresso, a pack of smokes, and the morning paper.

Oatmeal is non-traditional for me. So now that we're talking about it, I'm going to have a small bowl tomorrow with greek yogurt, dried fruit and nuts mixed in.

I really tend not to be a "sweet" breakfast person (pancakes, waffles, cold cereal) and like my savory breakfasts, but I'm thinking it might be good to mix it up a little and not constantly have an egg (in some form) on mornings I *do* eat breakfast.

I cook exotic grains for breakfast nearly every morning. Quinoa, Millet, Buckwheat, Amaranth, Brown Rice, Bulgur, Oatmeal, Grits. I don't oversweeten them. I use a pat of salted butter and a just a little bit of sweetener on them. Afterwards, I have a glass of soymilk. I feel better on this diet, and am often not even hungry at lunch time, so for that meal, I'll have something very light, like a PB&J sandwich, or a piece of cheese and a piece of toast with half an apple or half an orange.

Spicy foods don't appeal to me for breakfast, but if I were desperate, I'd definitely eat leftovers from the previous night's meal. At Thanksgiving time, I will have a piece of pumpkin pie for breakfast, or some sausage dressing.
