We’ve been told for years breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But since 2019, with the rise of intermittent fasting, breakfast is a thing of the past. It’s not cool anymore.
“You’re having overnight oats? At 9 am? What a loser.”
I’ve never been a big breakfast eater myself, as I naturally get hungry at around 11 am. But there were a few years when I was working a desk job and having 3 croissants and a latte at my desk at 9:30 am just felt like the right thing to do.
Over the years, once I got a bit more responsible, I changed my eating habits to be healthier and I now enjoy my breakfast time so much.
