Healthy Breakfast

  1. Jun 4, 2005 #1
    What is a healthy breakfast? Eggs? What else? I think eating waffles with butter and syrup everyday is a bad idea, and I am wondering about what I could switch to that is more healthy. Gracie!

    A good breakfast is eggs, meat (sausage, bacon, ham) and grits, smothered in Louisiana brand hotsauce. :approve: A healthy breakfast is fresh fruit sprinkled with wheat germ and yogurt...ok, but doesn't always hit the spot. :frown:

    from the culinary glossary

    "Grits is the dried kernels of white hominy (made from corn) eaten as a cereal that is similar in texture to pudding. "

    Similar in texture to pudding? What kind of pudding? Black pudding? Yorkshire pudding? Bakewell pudding?!

    Are they like porridge? Do you have them hot or cold? Do you put milk on them?

    If I didn't think you were completely taking the piss, I'd tell you.

    "taking the piss" ?

    I was asking a serious question.

    edit... I wikid Muesli. Looks almost like cereal to me.

    kind of like porridge, but with a gritty texture. Not gritty like gravel or popcorn. More gritty in appearance than texture. It is whitish in color and they are eaten hot. They can be eaten with just about anything. Look at the breakfast table in my last post. The bowl has grits and it looks like a pat of butter. All the other stuff is commonly eaten with grits for breakfast. Shrimp is also common and so is chicken, but that would be for lunch or dinner.

    Sorry!

    Yeah, it's rolled oats with raisins and other assorted dried fruit. Do you guys not get Alpen or anything over there?

    I want some!

    If they're good enough for Evo and Huck to champion, they've got to be good enough for me.

    SEND ME GRITS! with instructions :blushing:

    I have not an idea of what Alpen is.

    I don't eat much grits, but I do like them. They are more of a southern U.S. meal and northern U.S. eats oatmeal. I've always thought grits were more multi purpose and tasted better than oatmeal if prepared right. Many times I've stopped by roadside diners in the south and had some great grits.

    You have no idea how wrong that sounds. :smile:



    Okay, well, how about you make your own?!

    2 cups rolled oats
    3/4 cup diced dried apples
    1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
    1/2 cup raisins
    1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds
    1/4 cup sunflower seeds
    2 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar

    Stick whatever else you want in there too. Put in bowl, pour on milk! Mmmm!

    It's very Swiss. Do we have any Swisses here?

    I don't like grits, I think each one tastes like what it rhymes with. Oatmeal's the shiz G. With raisins!

    That Muesli stuff sounds good! I want some!
    Something is oddly familiar here...

    lol, after I looked that up, it was funny.

    GRITS is colloquial for "girls raised in the South."
