Default What's for Breakfast?

Since there's a "What's for Dinner?" Thread, I thought I'd start a "What's for Breakfast" to get an idea of what others eat.

Today I ate:

5oz of New York Striploin Steak
2 large eggs, fried (in butter)
1 oz. of old cheddar melted on the eggs
1/4 of a Granny Smith apple

(I find I don't tolerate much carbohydrate at breakfast, except when I'm doing distance cycling in the day, so I eat one slice of apple, or a small serving of berries, or something similar for fiber, etc.)

Nutritional Info: About 640 calories, 6g of carbs, 54g of protein, 42g of fat.

I also take some meds, etc., with my breakfast:

1000mg Glumetza (Extended-release Metformin)
75mg Arthrotec (for my osteoarthritis)
900mg Gabapentin (for nerve pain)
81mg Aspirin (Family History of Heart Disease and my own hypertension)
2000iu Vitamin D (I'm extremely deficient without supplementation)
100mg R-ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid, for glucose management)

So, what are the rest o' ya eating today? Or any day?

My breakfast was a nice thick slab of ham on a slice of GG bran crispbread with a little butter & mayonnaise to moisten it, and my coffee laced with real cream. Very satisfying, but not quite up there with steak & eggs, you ornery pup! And a strip steak to boot! My oh my!

not very interesting breakfast but here it is..

corned beef hash, I like mine crispy. 2poached eggs on top.

I got some new for the season coffee, Pumpkin Pie with spices. I whipped the cream & put more pumpkin pie spice on it.
Not to sure I even like it but it sure smells good when being ground.

I think it's very interesting - and it's popular because it's so good. Crispy is the way to go - love it!

Y'know what? I think I should try CBH with my wee turnips . . . betcha'd never know the difference! Now if our market will only put corned beef roasts on sale . . .

p.s. This thread has now been duly "stickied" right up there with what's for dinner!

I had 2 slice of multi grain bread with turkey, avocado, olive spread and 2 slice of chicken breast + instant coffee with milk and a glass of green tea.

No sure how many carbs it is. To me, just eat and exercise it all out.. LOL..going to have a 5 kms walk soon with my Standard Poodles

Hmmm... I don't really eat a breakfast. I have some nuts and cheese first thing... then 3 hours later I have some scrambled eggs and/or bacon. Today I had bacon

My dear husband served me a cottage cheese vaffel with raspberry and a cup of coffee with cream today.
This gives me 8 carbohydrates.
