    B: 1 coffeencream (v small) and eggs with leek in butter.
    Then another, larger coffeencream
    L: mozarella, beef tomato, olives and 2 pickled beetroot the size of small marbles. Yum
    D: will be steak, salad and stilton.

    I was reading Fung last night, and he was saying 'don't eat breakfast if you don't want to. People who eat breakfast eat on average 500 calories more than non-breakfasters.'
    :eek:
    So, OF COURSE I had to rebel.

    I don't usually eat breakfast. I have creamy coffee which has plenty of calories. So today, the intention was to REPLACE the coffee with a proper breakfast.
    = total FAIL
    I ended up with both coffee and brekkie. Plus I obsessed about food most of the morning, and created more washing up. :mad:

    So unless he is just playing mind games with me, there may, just maybe, be something in his theory.

    :shifty:

    I ate brekkie for years, but that was before I got the coffeencream addiction. :(
    Nowadays, I normally only have breakfast once or twice a week, at the weekend, and they are huge great blowout English Feasts, and I forget about food till supper.

    Hi, been away from the site for a while, hope everyone's doing okay! We're having work done to the flat and it's been a bit chaotic recently.

    Foodwise, there's a beef stifado (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/624633/beef-stifado - it's heaven in a pot) simmering on the stove and home-made yoghurt with lemon zests on the go too.
