If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and if you are what you eat, then I know everything I need to know about you by what you had for breakfast. Now, you might find this offensive if, for example, you had a donut and mocha something gwapachino this morning. Or if your typical breakfast involves gnawing on a Power Bar as you sit in traffic. Please know that I don’t judge. I just observe. And sometimes shake my head and sigh. But that’s not you, it’s me.
Here’s an example of what can be learned from someone’s breakfast. I’ll use myself. Every morning for the last 15 years (excepting the few days I traveled or had waffles) I have eaten the same thing for breakfast: spinach salad with diced apple, almonds, and a lemon yogurt dressing. I sprinkle on some raw oats so it looks like breakfast, and then I eat it with a spoon so it doesn’t look like salad.
What this says about me:
- I cling to routine. I need safety and security
- I am health conscious
- I am visual: I like color, texture, shape
- I am a little off-base
- I care way too much about what people think of me
See? Accurate self appraisal brought on by examination of breakfast. Try it, Mikey. Try it, you’ll like it.
