*TIP: Find Alternatives.
I never really ate breakfast. Cereal and toast never sat well, fruit gave me intense stomach pain.
Not having breakfast also meant I wasn't hungry for lunch and lead me forgetting that as well.
It wasn't until I collapsed a few times, unable to walk, and had to be picked up, I decided to take notice.
After lots of lectures from many people, I still made excuses and explained how food in the morning made me sick.
Then a really good friend quite frustrated said, "There must be something you can eat, it's a matter of finding out what it is."
Which was quite sensible and I didn't have anything to say.
I did remember that if I was out for coffee, I would get a croissant in the mornings. So I tried that and it worked well.
Instead of having soggy cold croissants, I discovered some frozen ones. So each morning I woke up 20 minutes earlier to heat them up in the oven..
I hadn't collapsed since and don't seem as tired since I started having breakfast.
But then the enthusiasm that led me to waking up 20 minutes early waned.
Today, I am eating cheese and croustinis (which are just toasted baguettes slices). What I discovered is I must have some sort of fat with my food in the morning. So Chinese noodles work as well. Once I started looking and paying attention, there seemed to be many alternatives I can try.
This is a lesson I have brought to all aspects of food. If something doesn't work, for my stomach or for a recipe, or for a friend's needs, I will try something else.
