There is a survey going on over here in NZ.
A survey to find out how many office workers actually eat Breakfast.
In my opinion they asked the wrong group of workers, it's us Manual workers that should be asked.
But, breakfast-wise, how do you start the day?.
I like the Coffee/Toast, butter and Jam angle, although I have been known to eat Steak Chips and Bacon for b/fast.
What's yours?.

Coffee, more coffee, some vitamins, and some coffee.
(Some mornings after looking on ECN, I might find myself "eating crow", or my boot, depending on if I've put my foot in my mouth or not in a post)

I'm not a morning person.

That said... My usual? Xlarge coffee (x cream x sugar) and 2 donuts from Dunkin Donuts... every once in a while a breakfast sandwich & hash brown from McDonalds or BK or some such. Usually eaten on the way to the job site. Days I'm not working? No breakfast... nap instead.

(although the Wife discovered some of these microwave breakfast sandwiches that _don't suck_ for a change - I might start having one of those... with the coffee )

Coffee, with milk/creamer and Splenda sweetener. No food unless I have some carbs handy (pastry, donuts, banana bread, etc) at my desk mid-morning. I eat lunch about 2:30 or 3:00 and by then I go for protein.

Bad breakfast but it's an old habit....

When I was younger, I would have a glass of milk. Now I am old and have 2 pieces of toast.

Cs409, I think the question was meant for after you are awake.

I start with a couple cups of coffee then mid morning have a biscuit or a light sandwich of some type.

On weekends I'm more apt to have a full breakfast.

Favorites:

2 Eggs, Bacon and Cheese on a Roll. side of OJ and Coffee.

Cheese Omelet, side of Sausage, Hash Browns, Rye Toast w/butter & Coffee.

I'm told I shouldn't be eating this stuff everyday, so Coffee and a Vitamin usually replaces the above.
