A cracking good breakfast.



Breakfast worries me. I'm now convinced that if I consume a single rasher of fried bacon, I will put on 5 Kilos, my diabetes will rage out of control, and I'll have a sudden urge to strangle Kittens. It's that bad.

So, fried breakfasts are a rarity. Instead I eat sensible things like Muesli, re-heated left-over curry, and medium boiled eggs.

But eggs spell danger. As we all know, they are filled with salmonella, cholesterol, and cancer. Not long ago it was recommended that we ate no more than one egg every two years (at our own risk), but this has now been slightly revised. We can now eat a dozen or more each day without any ill health worries at all. Thank heaven for wise egg-scientists.

The ones above were consumed yesterday. They were slightly overcooked, as half way through their preparation I was called upstairs to examine a damp patch on the ceiling.

The damp patch proved to be no more than a shadow, and, as a result, my eggs were less than perfect. I'll boil some more again in a week or so (unless the egg-scientists advise otherwise).

    1. Kale? Oh my goodness. Is nothing sacred?

  4. Most amusing. Lady M still not got those glasses? You just have to ignore everything told to you by all scientists, especially the egg ones. In a few years time it will be olive oil and then probably wine that you have to abandon .... never believe anything told to you by 'experts'!

    1. We were always told that the reason there are very few cardiac problems in the S W France area, is because they eat very healthy Duck Fat. I'm not sure if that still holds strong either!

  6. I love an egg and I think that all those statistics are only compiled by people who need something to do to keep them in their jobs ..... just everything in moderation is my mantra ..... we have been told that every food that exists has been either good for you or bad for you at some time or other . Enjoy your eggy Cro ! XXXX

  9. Because of digestive issues I now follow a high fat and protein, cutting out starches and sugar. I eat plates of bacon and eggs, steak, sausages, fish etc, plus black coffee, Merlot and very dark chocolate. I have lost two stones since September and blood readings much better. No processed food at all. Feel so much healthier on this regime adapted from the Fast Tract Diet by Dr. Norm Robillard. Enjoy your eggs I do!

    1. You didn't mention what terrible ailment you have, otherwise I would have gone out immediately and ordered it. Your diet sounds superb.

    2. Laryngopharyngeal disease which is basically when acid or pepsin burns the delicate throat tissue. Also IBS. The theory is to reduce fermentable carbs which cause gas to back up and force acid up the oesophagus. The diet goes against everything we have been told so was difficult for me to get my head around, ie high fat. Good fats like coconut oil and EVOO ate best but liberal amounts of fatty meat and butter too. Plenty of green leafy veg, oily fish. Only melon and berries for fruit, which I mix with mascarpone. Cheeses OK. No starch or sugars. Supposedly good for obesity diabetes and cardio vascular. I went through ketosis when my body converted from utilising carbs to fats. Bit flu like but fine now. Its a good way to eat x

    3. Of course I was only joking when I said what I did. Having experienced acid reflux on rare occasions, I can imagine how awful it can be.

    1. I always do that when Lady M goes travelling; a big steak (no egg), and a tiny salad.

    2. Oh yes, and a tiny salad. I have only recently been adding a fried egg on top of the steak. It is absolutely heaven.

  11. My husband read that leftover rice is dangerous because of bacteria. I will ignore that also.

    1. I've heard that too. My left-over curry this morning was blasted for two minutes in the microwave; that kills all bacteria.

  13. I also am careful with Breakfast. Like you I like the odd last night curry. Today I had my favorite, rice, small piece of fish and umeboshi (pickled plum).
    I don't have it often because of the carbs but I so love it.

    cheers, parsnip and mandibles

    1. Umeboshi is a real favourite of mine; I wonder if I could buy some through Amazon!!!!

    2. You could, I have ordered from them but they are not the ones I love from the market.

  14. We had scrambled eggs for dinner last night. I love soft, buttery scrambled eggs and eat them whenever I want them!

    1. Funnily I don't really like scrambled eggs; every other way, I love them. I have no idea why, I think it must be the texture.

  15. Breakfast of champions, Cro. Eggs, milk, bread and raw veg are all one needs to be perfectly healthy...

  16. It's not that I'm a creature of habit but for breakfast since I was aged in single figures I have had toast with Marmite and peanut butter (usually on separate pieces) for breakfast. That may well be in addition to muesli with ginger and banana or porridge or whatever. The bacon roll comes mid morning if I'm at The Woodlands for coffee. That's why I'm so thin.
