Why I Eat Breakfast
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I love breakfast. For breakfast, I usually eat traditional breakfast items, such as cereal, French toast, or a bagel with cream cheese. When I was growing up, my family would get up in the morning, usually around 8:00, and we would all sit down at the table for breakfast. At the table, we could talk about whatever was on our minds or about what our plans were for the day. When I went to college, I continued my breakfast tradition. At school, there were a number of reasons why I ate breakfast.

First, I did not want my stomach to growl in class. The noise would be distracting to my classmates and embarrassing for me. Therefore, to avoid problems, I wanted to be sure to eat breakfast before going to class. I was fond of biscuits and gravy, and I drank coffee with my meal. After eating, I would then go to class, stay awake during my professor's lecture, and feel fairly confident that my stomach would not embarrass me. In addition to avoiding embarrassment, there were other reasons why I ate breakfast.

A second reason why I ate breakfast was because I liked to be up and out early. If I was out early, I got to see what was happening on campus. If I slept in, on the other hand, I knew that I would miss out. What I missed out on might be something that I was eager to be a part of. By being up early, I got breakfast, and I learned about upcoming activities that interested me. There was also one other reason why I ate breakfast: money.

My parents bought a meal plan for me when I was living on campus. The meal plan consisted of three meals on weekdays and two meals on the weekends. I did not want to waste the money. Therefore, I ate my meals. I was also very conscious of the dining hall's schedule. Staff would stop serving breakfast at 10:30 and would begin serving lunch. I was careful to get to the dining hall before 10:30 so that breakfast would be my first meal, rather than lunch.

Since I have gotten married and graduated from college, however, I have noticed a change. As hard as I try to get up early, I find myself sleeping later. I also find myself putting other tasks, such as checking my earnings, reading my email, and looking to see what is trending on Twitter, ahead of breakfast.

Despite my drive and ambition, however, breakfast is still a priority in my life, and it always will be.
