I love eggs, and I’ve recently discovered how delicious sauteed onions are with scrambled eggs - this has become my ‘everyday’ breakfast of choice. Sauteed onions in some olive oil until they are sweet, then add the eggs and some truffle salt.
I eat scrambled eggs with onions at least 3 days a week, adding in either broccoli, mushrooms, or peppers in with the onions. Sometimes I will include an Amy’s sausage which I cut up and saute with the onions before adding the eggs. I often include a half an avocado along with some cherry tomatoes as sides.
Fruit (blueberries, raspberries, or peaches when available; dried cranberries other times); crunchy cereal (low sugar, whole grains, seeds - along the lines of Bob’s Red Mill Muesli); milk or yogurt.
My favorite breakfast when I have time: sauteed onions, add other vegetable (zucchini lately) until begin to soften, add chicken stock/thyme cover until onions are tender, then reduce until almost all stock is gone. Top with fried egg whites with generous salt and pepper. Mike
Weekdays it’s a mish-mash. On weekends a big one, especially on Sunday. Huevos rancheros, chorizo con huevos, bacon or sausage and eggs. If I’m feeling like a big spender, I go out to Podnah’s Pit for smoked brisket and eggs with a biscuit or to the Original Hotcake House for eggs, bacon and pancakes.

Like the other working people here, I too have a “weekday” and a “weekend” go-to breakfast.
Weekdays: A vitamin pack composed of one vitamin C, one calcium/magnesium, one fish oil and one multivitamin tablet. I down this with a protein shake composed of protein powder or egg whites, 1/2 cup of juice, 1/2 cup of plain yogurt, and 1/2 cup of frozen fruit. My go-to fruits are strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, pineapple, peaches or mangos. When in season, I cut them up and freeze them myself. I finish my weekday breakfast off with either a bowl of homemade granola or steel-cut oatmeal. Both see the addition of dried nuts, dried fruit, and dried coconut.
Weekends: These are my special breakfast days where I try to do a Denny’s style breakfast but still keep it relatively healthy. Start with the same vitamins and the same shake minus the protein or egg whites. The base of my main course is now eggs and breakfast meet. I will make over-easy, scrambled or an omelette using 1 whole egg and some liquid egg white. while I’m making this, either sausages, ham strips or bacon strips are grilling on my George Foreman grill. A thick slice of my homemade multi-grain bread is toasting in the oven as well. This is always topped with chunky peanut butter made from whole peanuts and/or some Nutella. Sometimes I will just combine the multigrain bread with the eggs for some French toast.
As of late, I have been debating whether or not to add icewine or some Moscato D’asti to this and have been holding off as I don’t think alcohol in the morning is a good idea and I already have some every night with dessert anyway.
