Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the meal that kick-starts your engine, revs up your metabolism, and keeps you from turning into a grumpy, hangry monster by mid-morning. Don’t believe me? Well, let’s hear what some famous folks have to say about this crucial morning ritual:
Mark Twain once said, “Eat a live frog first thing in the morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” Well, while I wouldn’t recommend frog cuisine, the idea of tackling something challenging in the morning holds true. And what could be more challenging than trying to function on an empty stomach? So, why not fuel up and take on the world with an Eggs Benedict?
Albert Einstein famously said, “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” Now, let’s apply this to breakfast. If an empty stomach is a sign of a grumpy morning, of what, then, is a satisfied stomach a sign? A sign of a morning filled with joy, productivity, and fewer accidental computer demolitions. So, grab a croissant and keep your laptop safe from your hangry outbursts.
Winston Churchill once declared, “I am easily satisfied with the very best.” Well, dear Winston, breakfast is your chance to indulge in the very best. It’s a time to enjoy delectable French toast drizzled with maple syrup, or maybe a perfectly cooked Bacon and Egg Toasted sandwich. Life is too short to skip breakfast or settle for anything less than delicious.
Audrey Hepburn, the epitome of elegance, once said, “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. And I believe in having breakfast in bed.” Now, whilst the staff at Blue Gum can’t promise you a bedazzled pink breakfast tray or a plethora of kisses, we wholeheartedly support the idea of enjoying breakfast in bed. It’s a chance to pamper yourself, embrace the day with a smile, and maybe spill a few crumbs in the sheets.
Lastly, Benjamin Franklin shared this nugget of wisdom: “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Well, dear Ben, I’d like to add a small amendment to your statement: “Early to rise, have breakfast, and then conquer the world.” Because let’s face it, a breakfast-fueled brain is the path to success, or at least the path to a full, satisfied stomach.
