Part of your complete breakfastPosted by Steve on June 29 at 11:47 am
We’ve talked before on the blog about the challenges of keeping the creative juices flowing (see my posts about beating creative block and being a night owl or an early riser). Everyone has a strategy, but one thing’s for sure: creativity is tough to come by when you’re tired, hungry, sluggish, or buried in the busyness of life. I’ve never been a big breakfast guy, but I’m experimenting with some morning meals to see what cooks up the best balance for my day.
I’ve tried big breakfasts and small breakfasts. Bagels and English muffins? Check. Breakfast bars are stashed in my car (cereal bars, granola variants, and toaster pastries). I’ve combined the above with breakfast shakes, and I have a mug of coffee each morning. You’ll notice that all these things don’t require much prep work, and I prefer to eat in the car I’m going to be trying more fruits for the summer, and once in a great while I get a craving for the golden arches.
I’m convinced of two things. The more sugar, the worse off I am! The frosted pastries and sugar-suffed cereal bars are tasty, but they definitely don’t sustain me. Secondly, I need some consistency from day to day… random meals means random performance in my case!
