@hightor,
Ug - I, personally, would rather have natural sugars...but that being said I do search for the juice with the lower sugars. I just avoid anything that is chemical or non- natural - as much as I can.

Had a life/personal type coach (was offered free from work) she was also a nutritionist and pointed to me that things like yogurt with real whole milk with as low sugar as possible was actually better for you than the "fake" things like skim, lower fat. You just have less of if. That all this processed stuff is poison for your body.

She even got me making my own granola from all organic products and led me to places I could get the more natural stuff.

That being said you are correct on the low amount of sugar - being very important to minimize this for your body.

Ok that being said - I still drink my coffee for breakfast! Sometimes I have plain yogurt and add my home made granola. I am not a big breakfast person - maybe an egg with some sautee veggies and a little cheese.

@chai2,
Looks good to me, except for the avocado....really don't like the texture, but that's just me.

A couple of poached eggs. Had used some balsamic/fig vinegar in the poaching water. Turned out really well. A couple of tomato slices on the side.

@ehBeth,
That sounds good.
How much vinegar to how much water?

@chai2,
some like to use 2 inches of water but if you use 4 inches you can get a more spherical egg, I use a tbsp of vinegar in 4 inches or 2 teaspoons in 2 inches.

@glitterbag,
Sounds about right. I've just recently started using different vinegars and it's been working nicely, adding a tiny bit of flavour

Want to hear something funny? I set out to improve my diet, so went to Smith's (a fairly large supermarket here) to get a couple of tomatoes. They didn't have any. Not one.

@roger,
With the kind of drought going on there are bound to be shortages. Maybe even greenhouses are having trouble getting enough water.

@edgarblythe,
coastal permicep style systems will provide all the water we need but at unreal prices. In some states, the interstate River Compacts (A Fed Idea from the 30's) are actually considering to make private wells provisional. In many states in the eat, the "prior Appropriation" laws arent working at all. California is a desrt both above and below ground. Its got aquifers that are tapped out

@ehBeth,
Mrjoe is the king of poached eggs. (Puffs out chest) It's a gift, really.

I just consumed half a hamburger, leftovers from last night. I'm expecting to eat steak and eggs tomorrow.

@glitterbag,
They also make a fabulous Bearnaise Sauce that I use when I make steak and eggs. There's something about Knorr's products that none of the others come close to. When I see them, I buy several at a time.

I am up super early (between 4:30 and 6:00) and don't generally eat until about 8 hours after I wake up. But I will have a couple cups of cappuccino and a glass or two of grapefruit juice. Funny thing is - I can't find the yellow grapefruit juice anymore. And I can't find canned apricots, either. Both have gone from every supermarket.

@Mame,
Today, for the first time in longer than I can remember (40-50 years?) I had raisin toast. I'm sad to report: meh.

Bacon, fried eggs, biscuits - I wanted hashbrowns but didn't bother to make any. Typical Sunday breakfast here.

New's Day just wouldn't feel complete for any of us without eggs benedict, so we're having it for brunch. The peameal came out of the oven an hour ago, and this place smells great.

@Joeblow,
For me, my usual (probably) jello, pudding, yogurt and banana; maybe some form of bread or muffin. But not for a couple more hours, probably.

Fresh ground flax seeds in a bowl with non GMO cereal and milk, with a banana and a few berries.
