Yes, its the most important meal of the day. I have something different every day.
Thanks for all these responses!
It is hard for me to eat a good breakfast so this is all so inspiring! I'm going to add some of these ideas to my shopping list!

CHRISTINA- You are my new favorite friend! I went to the store after the park playdate for my kid's bookclubs and I picked up about 8 lemons (unfortunately I didn't go to the organic store). I also picked up 5 grapefruit, because like you- I LOVE GRAPEFRUIT! Right when I got home, I cut my lemon in 1/2, added a squeeze of agave nector, and microwaved my distilled water for 30 seconds. It reminded me of the lemon cleanse, but didn't burn going down! It is so yummy! I look forward to drinking this daily! (But more than just breakfast!)
I really hate that I have Interstitial Cystitis and can't have lemons, oranges, grapefruit, or limes without being in a LOT of pain afterwards. If I could have them, I would definitely try this!
I used to do lemon water and really liked it, but it started eroding my teeth too bad and I had to stop. My enamel is very weak to begin with and the prolonged acid exposure was causing my enamel to break down and I was getting constant cavities and chips in my teeth (I use a prescription toothpaste now that is helping to strengthen my teeth)
I was really good about eating breakfast for a while when I was working out, but have been bad lately and not eating often enough. I usually eat oatmeal or a bowl of Special K, but I also love these Mini Spinach Quiches, especially with some mushroom or other veggies added and with Paprika instead of the hot sauce. They freeze and reheat in the microwave well! (I also recommend greasing the muffin tins instead of using paper liners)
Ginger, I LOVE the brown sugar pop tarts too!
Aww Wendy, that stinks! I would say for anyone concerned about enamel, USE A STRAW! It's what they suggest for sodas, too, since they really destroy teeth over time (as well as the rest of your body). Coca Cola to clean acid-covered car battery posts? Yes, we put that all over our teeth--ugh!
Sara: LOVE YOU, GRAPEFRUIT BUDDY!
I eat fruit almost every day, by itself. I usually buy the big fruit bowls at Target and just get it out every morning.
So, you want to know what's weird?? My kids- I keep telling them NOT to touch Mommy's grapefruit (or as the 3 year old says- Great Food), but they keep coming back and sneaking! I guess I'm just either blessed with super hungry kids (you know, the ones that never stop), or super non-picky eaters. They LOVE salad, too!
