the proof is in the ... eggs?

"> "> "> ">

I've been getting enough emails and comments about my eating (or, not eating) to drive me to prove that I actually do eat.  Behold this morning's meal - eggs with broccoli and cauliflour.  I ate about 3/4 of the bowl and thought I was going to burst at the waist!  I felt sluggish for the rest of the day and on the way home from the dogpark I thought I might fall asleep at the wheel.  This is why I don't like to eat breakfast.

By 3:30 I had to drag my sorry ass to Starbucks to get a coffee.  You just know I must've been desparate [Starbucks is never my first choice]  It's not like me to get coffee at that time of day but I had to work at the yoga studio and it probably wouldn't have served any of us if I was snoozing behind the desk. 

Ah well, it kept me awake during the Born to Blog chat!  And hey, I ate this morning!

Hey! Two things... first, KEEP eating! Your body needs the fuel. Maybe try something other than eggs? I love those flavored oatmeal packets in the morning. Yes, I was the perfect daughter... someone who loved oatmeal. Second, how can you afford Starbucks? I like the flavored coffees, too, but I buy the Maxwell House vanilla coffee grounds and then add vanilla creamer and it is so much better than "bought" coffee. And cheaper!

Eggs with broccoli and cauliflour??? Interesting. Starbucks isn't nearly as good as it should be for what they charge, but . . . . coffee is coffee, caffeine is caffeine. I'm not a breakfast eater myself. Usually a toasted bagel and a cup of coffee.

Nice try Freee but I ain't buyin'. Those pics looked like they've been doctored. Or at the very least it looks like you've used a stunt double. I'm afraid we'll need pics of the food actually in your mouth accompanied by audio sounds of your meal digesting in your tummy :-)

Well, no wonder! Eggs are high in tryptophan~an amino acid that is a natural relaxant. It is also found in dairy foods, soy products, meat, whole grains and beans. The best thing to eat in the morning, IMO, is melon and coffee! Save the eggs for dinner!

Hahaha...great entry, love your facial expressions! Way to eat. Maybe next time you can open your mouth and say "train wreck" for those who want proof you're eating : )

No, honey, the reason you don't like eating breakfast is because you're gagging down GAWD-AWFUL combinations like eggs and brocolli!!!! ROFL I love these pictures. Your expressions are so funny! Webcams are the best! So glad you got yours out again! [I told you the lighting would work! Lovely!]

Recipe for tomorrow : 3 scrambled egg whites, 1/2 chopped tomato, 2 tbsp chopped green onions and 1/4 cup shredded vegan cheese! Get after it!

Wait... I just have to say this. You look about 4 years old in that second picture. Incredibly cute. Tehehehe... But no, I don't want a bite! Eurgh! LoL

Kewl, Freeeebie!! I not a Starbuckian either. There's a neat coffee house across from ASU called the Plantation House. It's sooooooooo nice at night to sit outside in the night air and people watch the students. Great conversations too.

I don't know, I think if I had to eat eggs everyday
I would want to burst at the waist too...not my fave
thing to eat....but I AM NOT discouraging you to eat!
I only eat breakfast when I have to work, or when
Dallis is with me, and I take her to eat breakfast before
school. Otherwise, I would rather sleep in and wait for
lunch or dinner, lol!
Great fun pics, BTW Penny

Kat - I eat salads, burritos, cookies and chocolate. Tea or coffee in AM.

DiAnne - Oatmeal, perfect! ty for the reminder! max.hse. for me. I love my coffee too much.
Irun - dang boy, just found out you're sharky's hubby - LOVE THAT!! I like bagel/coffee but can make me sluggish.

Gregg, Songbird, Isabel - you will NEVER see food in my open mouth (not on camera anyway). Some things are meant to be kept sacred.
Grace - El-Tryp in eggs too huh? not just in turkey. zzzzzzzz
SloMo - LMAO...too funny! I like brocolli. I'll try your recipe but that entails me actually shopping. Yes, love my webcam - thanks for your inspiration.
Chica - WB. Love local spots!
Penny - my first meal is usually 2 or 3pm...been trying to eat little before I start my day. ::sigh::
