People still argue about whether breakfast is the most important meal of the day. (Short answer: Yes for kids—particularly those whose diets may be lacking important nutrients; it’s a toss-up for adults.) But ever since eating cold pizza for breakfast in college (more than once), I’ve wondered why we choose certain foods over others for the first meal of the day.
Granted, the Kellogg brothers changed what millions of Americans eat first thing with their invention of cornflakes more than a century ago, but what’s considered a traditional breakfast meal still varies widely in different countries and climates—not to mention amongst college students. The newly awakened often greet the day with rice and miso soup in Japan, café au lait in France, nsima in Malawi and gallo pinto in Costa Rica.
What’s your favorite breakfast meal? What’s the craziest thing you ever ate first thing in the morning? Consider snapping a photo and sharing it with us below.
We’ll take submissions until December 12 and post a gallery of the best shots at
