    My typical lunch is my leftover supper from the night before, but I sometimes can’t wait that long and end up eating it for breakfast.

    All this talk of turkey means I gotta go shopping and make myself a full roast

    As for cereal: I always suspected this was some industrial byproduct that they had to pay a fortune to dispose of, then marketing had an idea to pretend it was desirable - like Rosie O'Donnell

    So, you are saying that’s it the grease that lubricates your insides, helping the bolts travel, otherwise one has to eat cereals to help the process

    It could be, it would have to lube things up on the way through. Chocolate in large amounts is the only thing I have noticed that can block you up.
    A friend also told me a doctor warned him not to eat the stalks on cashew nuts because they can tear things up on the way through when you get older and possibly lead to problems.
    Sounds reasonable.

    What stalks are you talking about on cashews? Never seen them. Do you guys have wild cashews?
    I know I developed a severe intolerance to cashews,, somewhere between 50 and 55 yo.
    I know that the fruit where the cashew nut comes from is filled with a severe irritant.

    The pesky little hard bit on the top of the cashew. It's often still in place when you buy a bag of salted/ roasted cashews. It's like a hard piece of wood that wont digest and can scratch things up internally. It's small and looks like a sprout on the end. I eat cashews by the bag full but do keep in mind to weed out the hard bits when I see them. I think as you get older it can be more problematic, a cut internally in the wrong place can lead to serious issues or infection etc.

    An old workmate was a rich Chinese Malaysian ( Chinese FIRST) and she advised me of their adage " Eat like a King at breakfast and a pauper at night." Of course that simply meant eat more at breakfast and lunch and little for dinner.
    The older I get I find truth in this. A big meal at night will allow me to sleep but i may wake up anytime with plenty of energy. Food for thought.

    Because you’d be utterly spoilt with an endless morning breakfast diet of cold pizza or reheated curry and chilli.

    Bacon grease- oooh.
    Could be a whole thread unto itself.

    Sometimes on rainy days I'll fry 6 or 7 pounds of bacon, snacking on probably a pound while cooking.
    Freeze the rest for BLTs, salads and such.
    I save the grease for cooking eggs, Italian beans, swiss chard and such.

    As far as moving stuff on out when it's done it's work, I find eating at least a small salad every day gets that accomplished. Unlike many, I happen to like iceberg lettuce and a salad of it with tomato wedges, handful of almonds or pecans spritzed with rice vinegar is one of my meals almost every day. I'll usually toss in whatever leftover chicken, ham, steak or salmon that might be left over.

    I'll have a salad any time of day. Funny how we develop patterns that last for years!

    This morning I realized I'd thawed a frozen boneless chicken breast for use yesterday that went unused, so I elected to cut the chicken into 5/16ths inch thick steaks and pan saute the chicken with olive oil, chardonnay and lots of herbs. For breakfast, with V-8 juice. And shared the chicken with my pup.

    In Korea, a typical breakfast would consist of salted little fish like sardines, white rice, some pickled seaweed, and some Kimchi (fermented cabbage). Or they might go with leftovers, or if they're hungover they drink a kind of miso soup.
    In Nepal people typically just drink tea with salt in it for breakfast, and wait until the afternoon to eat their one big meal.
    So, yeah, I don't think there is a logical or nutritional reason that Americans eat Pop Tarts, Captain Crunch, oatmeal with brown sugar, whatevs. It's just what people grew up and / or are sold.

    I don t eat anything aquatic so when I was in England , Kippers were a real WTF. Tho I did dig the Broiled Tomatoes, and get tomatoes done on the grill at my local breakfast place.

    Dosa is Indian breakfast food, and Pho is a good Vietnamese breakfast. It's all just cultural.

    I love bacon and eggs, or a nice omelet, for dinner.
