Traditionally we are expected to eat three times a day, which is widely accepted and carried out by people, and I am most of the time one of the followers of this tradition; when it comes to breakfast, however, I see no limitations- you say "breakfast"? Breakfast is always welcome any time, anywhere, in any form, with any content and at any number a day!

* * *

Sometimes I can't help thinking that we are born for having breakfast! In those moments it seems to me that breakfast is the reason of our existence.

* * *

One who doesn't like breakfast or hasn't breakfast -is this possible?- at all is the one to be stayed away from!

* * *

Happy is one who would prefer their breakfast in a countryside garden among flowers and trees, in the presence of the sun beams in the morning!

To me, a breakfast is a breakfast with tea. I can't imagine any breakfast without tea. A breakfast without tea is like a human being without legs and arms, like a bird without wings, like a sky without blue. How about coffee?- one might ask now- Breakfast with coffee instead of tea? Only once have I tried so far a breakfast with coffee, and that experience was terrible. If not with tea, thus will I say, let no breakfast be at all!

Quoting pagliaccio:

Yeah, it's possible! Not a fan of breakfast...can't stomach eggs, coffee or tea. I have only recently started eating anything at all for breakfast and it is usually oatmeal or a protien bar and some fruit.
Difficult to do though.

If I were a novelist, I would write a breakfast novel; if a painter, I would paint a breakfast painting; if a musician, I would compose a breakfast symphony; if a sculptor, I would sculpt a breakfast statue.

I defy anyone to claim all the universe doesn't move just for the sake of breakfast!

Breakfast one of the very few things to which I never ever say "NO!" in all conditions. As long as it is breakfast in question, I am all, from head to toe, a "YES!".

Give me my breakfast, and all meals be yours!

This might be the only issue that I disagree with Ataturk on. Ataturk never ate breakfast. Personally, I think maybe he was too hung over to eat....

Perfect breakfast for me:

tea, (not bag)
white cheese
fresh bread
strawberry jam, fresh
breakfast salad (tomatoes, cucumbers, parsley, mint, olive oil and lemon juice)
on occasion sucuk
