What’s For Breakfast?

It’s one of the most well-known sayings when it comes to food: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

From sweet to savory, people have different preferences for their first meal of the day. While many students eat the breakfast offered at the school cafeteria, which includes fried rice, bacon, toast and sausage, others bring food from home or stop by the store on the way to school. Those who want to eat something healthy and sweet eat fruit and yogurt, or drink smoothies. People who love to sit down and savor their first meal of a hectic day eat pancakes. Some love to have rice every meal of the day, including breakfast, so they cook up fried rice with bacon and eggs. Then there are those who eat breakfast snacks such as Pop-Tarts, Belvita, or granola bars for convenience, or even those who skip breakfast altogether.

Here’s a look at what students and teachers at Hawaii Baptist Academy eat for breakfast:

“When you’re old, you have to watch what you eat to be healthy. I have Cheerios for dietary fiber, fruits and a coke. The coke gives me sugar and caffeine to get through the day.  If I have a meeting scheduled, I have two cokes.”

“I try to start with some fruit, a cup of coffee and some protein. Usually I’ll have some yogurt or these almond bars because it’s healthy and quick in the morning. In a perfect world I’d have bacon and eggs every morning!”

“For breakfast I usually start my day with a big smoothie bowl. The fruits or veggies depend on what I have in the fridge, but banana ‘Nicecream’ is probably my favorite. It gives me so much energy throughout the day.”

“A bowl of kasha; a common breakfast for Russians and Ukrainians. [It has] cooked buckwheat groats, crushed walnuts, sautéed onions, kidney beans, and garlic. I make it myself. Power food with lots of carbs, protein, and unsaturated fats; good for consumption before workout.”

“Sorry, but I don’t eat anything for breakfast because I have no time and mornings are for catching up on all the homework I [didn’t] do at home.”

“Oatmeal and honey is my staple breakfast every morning. I usually add some dried cherries to it but I was out of it this time. I sometimes top off my breakfast with a banana or yogurt. While it doesn’t look particularly tasty, I really enjoy the combination of warm oatmeal (not the instant kind), honey and a tart dried fruit. Plus, it’s good for me.”

“Cereal, fruit and juice. While it does seem like a simple meal, it fills me up and gives me a good mix of protein, fruit and grains, which keeps me going through the long and busy days at school.”

“For breakfast, I usually drink a super green fruit smoothie. It fills me up till break and gives me energy in the morning. I can’t go a school morning without my healthy smoothie.”

“For breakfast I usually grab a granola bar or something like that because it’s easy to just grab and go in the morning. I’m always rushing to get out of the house, and it tastes great!”
