My breakfast is generally oatmeal with some rasins tossed in. However, my favorite breakfast is an omelette/scrambled egg (add some milk some it comes out smoother) with some cheese melted into it.

 

During the week, we cook up a big pot of oatmeal and help ourselves to a couple of bowls. On the weekends, sometimes we'll make an omelette/scrambled egg or some pancakes (lately, we've been using flour and milk and a few other things to make the mix rather than buying the mix)

 

And sometimes, when we don't have the 5 minutes to cook some oatmeal, we just grab some cold cereal (either organic/natural cereal or store brand cereal. We're never going to waste our money on Cheerios or brands like that)

How about a western omelette with sausage on a roll or bagel. Can be that or cereal. If I don't eat breakfast, its usually coffee for me.

lol... Well back in Italy in the mornings I would go down a few blocks from my apartment in Florence and head to a bar (we call them "bar's" there, but they're like cafes) for an espresso or a macchiato (and they're not like gigantic coffees like they have here in the U.S. (ridiculous to say the least) :eek:) and have that with a cornetto alla crema or a sfoglia alla crema or alla marmellata or some sort of other pastry or fresh fruit or biscotti. Another nice one is fresh bread w/nutella with milk or San Pellegrino. :cool:

 

Don't have lots of cereals in Italy as the kids prefer biscotti moreso, but I used to eat Honey Nut Cherrios there from time to time since that was a popular cereal, or if I wanted a brunch at home, I'd scramble some eggs, warm up a piece of scacciatina (type of focaccia bread) in a pan and then crisp up some pieces of pancetta and put some nice provolone cheese on the eggs and melt it a little. :cool: BTW what's your beef with Cherrios? They're natural and rather healthy. If I can't get to Whole Foods for organic or natural cereal, then I'll pick up some Honey Nut Cherrios and some organic skim milk. :cool:

I don't eat breakfast either.... If I eat somethin before I leave the house, I'll have a nasty taste in my stomach up until lunchtime.... I find that (for me) the best cure for this acid reflux I sometimes get in the morning is... a nice bottle of ice cold water.

 

t'hell w/ all those liquid gels, pills, and other nonsense.....

 

 

I only cereal when I don't feel like ordering out, or cookin up anything.... far as fast food restaurant breakfasts', nope, not anymore... only thing I used to eat was those sausage biscuits (mcdonalds) during my college years...

 

I don't drink coffee; aint my cup of "tea"....

Only time I drink, "tea", is when I'm sick (which is rare).....

lol... I agree... Since I've come back from Italy, I'll do brunch but rarely do I have breakfast except on the weekends. Then maybe I'll have a bowl of organic oatmeal or some natural or organic cereal, but during the week a cold cup of water does fine such I have lunch early anyway. I find that having breakfast makes me feel "ugh" sort of and then when lunch comes I'm even hungrier than when I don't eat breakfast. lol

I wasn't really referring to the cereal itself. I was referring more to the brand of Cheerios. For the same price as a box of Cheerios, you can get a good natural brand like Kashi's "Heart to Heart", which is the same thing with more natural ingredients. Or if you don't care so much about being all-natural, there are store-brand cereal (they usually say something to the effect of "Toasted Oats") that have the same ingredients for a lower price.

 

The same thing for cereals like Kellogg's Rasin Bran and other popular cereals: You can get better value by buying a different brand (ShopRite used to have Organic Rasin Bran, but they discontinued it. :( )

 

I've heard that about Italians not being big on cereal. My Italian teacher said that the only places that have cereal are usually in tourist areas. She said that, for breakfast, they usually have a caffelatte (coffee with milk, for those of you who don't speak Italina) or bicotti alla marmellata (biscotti cookies with jam)

Ah, I see. In that case you're right. I mean for example I'll buy Organic cereal from Whole Foods (the 365 store brand) for $4.19 and it is great. So is the Organic oatmeal.

 

As for breakfast in Italy, it wasn't something that I ate a lot of quite frankly, and the cereal section is so small in the supermarkets (like COOP) that you can breeze through it in less than a minute.

 

Breakfast is generally light in Italy because we eat big lunches, so often times I would travel places during the mornings in Tuscany before my late classes and then I would grab a cornetto or something quick and have that on the train.

 

Another thing that is great there is how cheap breakfast can be. An espresso or a macchiato is basically something like 0,75€ cents and then you leave a tip so maybe 1,25€ if that and the cornetti or sfoglie are maybe about the same price 0,75€. :cool: I think I ate fresh bread w/nutella once or twice. Went to a bakery and picked up a big bread for next to nothing warmed the nutella a bit and I was very pleased for maybe a few euros. :cool:

Do they have organic oatmeal in containers larger than 18oz at Whole Foods? I was thinking about having organic oatmeal more often, but trying to keep the cost down at the same time (and generally, large containers are cheaper per-unit than smaller containers)

 

By the way, I heard of this dish called polenta that you eat for lunch in Italy. How is it? I saw it at Western Beef by the deli counter, and I was wondering if it tasted good. My Italian teacher said that it is a cornmeal dish, so it doesn't sound like something I would like.

Platanos con frijoles. Yep, my all time breakfast favorite, and my most favorite dish of all.

My breakfast is whatever my 1st meal (out of many lol) of the day is, and since my day doesn't usually start until 4 PM, its usually McDonalds or pizza

 

If I'm lazy and don't feel like cooking (haven't cooked in a few days, too hot to be in a kitchen), I'll just have a bowl of cereal for dinner
