Re: What's For Breakfast ........ McDonald's ?

"Fried or scrambled eggs Fried sausages, Rashers of smoked Bacon slightly burnt, Plumb Tomatoes, Baked Beans, Black Pudding, and a couple of slices to soak up the juice. A big mug of teaspoon stand up builders tea, and you are all set.... for a heart attack, but it was fun getting it."

Serious;y, NOTHING will get me sicker, quicker, than just what ypu've described - ugh! When I go visit our northern cousins and get fed a diet of morning full Englishes, my stomach is NOT happy!!

I don't think we believe that cholesterol you eat contributes to cholesterol on your blood.  I think the current thinking is that carbohydrates do.  Therefore, a breakfast of pancakes and syrup, a cinnamon roll and orange juice might be the real heart attack on a plate.

You might not believe it but there are a lot that do.

Your pancakes and syrup is just a set you upper. The full english will fill your legs down to your boots, and keep you going until 11's.

Just gave me a flash back to when I was building buses... for New York, Baghdad, London, and other places.

At one point I used to have a light breakfast at home, then at break (10am) a couple of cheese rolls, and a hot steak and kidney pie, then a full dinner with pudding at lunch time from the company canteen, and a drink in the company bar, then a couple of sweet cakes at tea time, and then when I got home a decent dinner.... and yet I was skinny. 10 1/2 stone in my jockeys.

That said, in a repetitive weight lifting competition we had among ourselves I came second only to a guy built like a brick shithouse. You don't have to be big to be strong.

Breakfast of champions...
Poached eggs with a hint of malt vinegar.
Baked brown beans with a taste of maple.
Plenty of fruit and a strong dark roast coffee.
Good to go.

Truth be told, my breakfast each day is coffee with cream and nothing more.  I do like eggs, grits, ham and toast for lunch or supper, however.

Your grits, which always sounded grim to me, is something like porridge isn't it?

Corn porridge, I suppose.  People who don't like them tend to add milk and sugar and find them satisfactory.  I prefer them with a pat of butter and salt and pepper.  If you have had something like cream of wheat, you have had a near approximation.
