Boring, boring, BORING

These days I’m finding that breakfast is one of the MOST BORING times of the day.


Breakfast cereal is boring, boring, boring.

I’m tired of Muesli and all those other BORING things we are told are good for us (ha ha – mostly they are just the opposite, but that’s another rant for another time).

There must be something that’s quick and easy to do, fills you up until lunch time, is moderately healthy, won’t make you fat, and is NOT BORING. I haven’t found it yet.


Urgh! What a horrible thought!

Wally.. I eat Tuna for breakfast! If you buy the right brand (for eg. Safcol) it tastes great.. I add Cayenne Pepper to it.. It keeps me satisfied until lunchtime.. Loaded with healthy Omega3 fats and no deleterious effect on my blood sugar.. Well worthy of your consideration!.

Tropical fruit and melons, and LOTS of it. Go down to the Central market a couple of times a week on the way home. buy a Red Paw-paw that has some pale green splotches – not too firm but not mushy. If you can get a rough pineapple (spiky leaves), go for it, but steer clear of the smooth ones as they are generally not as good to eat. Bananas, of course, and Rockmelon, watermelon, a Tangerillo for difference, Mangoes (but only in season, and only Aussie-grown). Fill up your breakfast bowl heaping = as much as it can hold with 2cm cubes of everything. the fruit can all be kept (except bananas turn black) for a few weeks in the ‘fridge with cut surfaces resting on plates, but it does take up a bit of room.

It fills you up. You might feel like you have a tummy full of water all morning, but for some reason, as long as you avoid eating any thing else with it, the hunger is suppressed until well into the day. A few weeks into it, your system will get used to the waterbag feeling.

Unfortunately in this country, where fruit should be cheap, the “system” manages to keep the prices sky-high (ever bought lemons at a supermarket?)if you can add anything (your mandarins) to the mix, it helps.

We’ve been doing this for at least 12 years!

Use half the muesli and chuck in seedless grapes, sultanas and strawberries, takes seconds. I don’t like banana myself but it’s pretty quick to add in too. On weekends when I have more time to dice I add apple, orange, pear.

I like the fruit ideas. Thanks everybody!

I’m going to have to reform my wicked ways and eat more fruit. I don’t know that I’ll go all the way that Don suggests – at least not right now.

But more fruit and less of that cereal crap sounds about right.

And sorry Adam – Cocoa pebbles and honeycomb WILL NOT get a look-in!

Maybe Cap’n Crunch then? :-)

Don’t know what a Cap’n Crunch is, but the name is enough to put me off!
