I'm such a non-traditionalist when it comes to food.

I'm such a non-traditionalist when it comes to food.

No I mean it...

A lot of it is because I'm limited in what I can physically eat (as in Swallow, I went into the whole thing about this condition I have a while back in the old LJ so I'll not repeat myself), and I'm also limited where my diabetes is concerned. I have to monitor myself and not OVER indulge.

But the main reason is, I'm really not a fan of food, very FEW things really get my taste buds a-drooling. I'm sort of just blasé about food in general.

I love Lobster/Shrimp/crab (Shellfish in general) in just about everything. (Maybe except Pizza *shudder*).

I love Cheese.

I LURVE Chocolate (who doesn't? This is one craving I *HAVE* to do in moderation *damn*)

I LURVE White Peaches (Again, like Chocolate gotta watch it.)

That's really it of the foods that trip my meter.

Then comes by non-traditional part... which is the POINT of my post (Hey I'm PMSing and I suffer really *BAD* insomnia... I haven't slept in maybe 38 hours other than a 2 hour cat nap yesterday at around noon-two).

I don't classify my foods to "breakfast, lunch, and or dinner". I could care LESS what time of day it is... if I want pizza at 8 a.m. I am going to eat Pizza.

I'm an adult, I can do that. (Only when I was a kid it was chocolate cake for breakfast desires, and I've been known to do that too. The day after my birthday for example, I had a big-ol-slice of it.)

But what brought this up and the reason I'm mentioning it at all in my journal to bore you all to tears with is my Dad.

See he went out and bought doughnuts... the little pink box was sitting right there on the counter as I proceeded to make what I wanted for breakfast.

Dad walks in as I am preparing my lovely little fresh spinach salad, a little sprinkle of shaved carrots, with a diced boiled egg, some scrummy restaurant style croutons, and some Louis rich chicken chunks. (A little handful, I don't like a lot of meat in my salad.), and had I not eaten all my cheese yesterday that would have been in my bowl too. Add a light coating of ranch dressing and I'm a happy girl this morning.

My father is looking at me like I've grown horns on my head.

"SALAD FOR BREAKFAST?!?!" He exclaimed as he grabs his third doughnut (The non-descript one, that "one" that comes standard in all mixed dozens. Ya know the one I mean, it's the one with the "day-glow" pepto bismol pink icing and chopped peanuts, the one that is ALWAYS left all by itself after your co-workers beat you to the box... That one.)

I look at Dad's breakfast, then Mine.

I think I'll stick with my salad thanks. To me this *IS* breakfast/lunch/dinner/anytime food.

(I'll probably have that nice little plain cake (my favorite) doughnut dad bought me for lunch.)

I don't class food to specific times of day either.

When I come downstairs in the morning, I first decide whether or not I fancy breakfast (or if I have time ^_~) then either go for what I'm craving, or fish around until I find something that takes my fancy. If I know there's left over pizza from the night before, I'm going to go for that. I've been known to eat leftover curry for breakfast, much to my friends' disgust.

Likewise, if I'm in the mood for a bowl of cereal around lunch then why not have it?

I pretty much take the view that if I like a food, why does it matter what time of day it is? However, a lot of people seem to only be able to stand certain things at certain times of day - mostly breakfast. I can't count the number of times my grandma has complained even about chocolate flavoured cereal: "How can you eat something chocolate flavoured for breakfast?"

Side note, are doughnuts more of a breakfast food than salad? I never considered them a breakfast food, but perhaps that's just my Britishness coming through.

Yup, Doughnuts are MAINLY breakfast food here. Most Donut Shops close by Noon.

Their hours of operation are usually 4 am to Noon

You mean we're not supposed to eat pancakes for dinner? Please don't tell my boys! *grin*

As a kid my mom was often in and out of the hospital because of her diabetes (she wasn't a "good" diabetic), so my dad would feed my brother and I whatever he knew how to cook. Scrambled eggs and Jimmy Dean sausage patties were common dinner fare in my house. Then there was the home ec. teacher who recommended pizza as a balanced breakfast food.

My personal food choices have gotten even stranger since I've had to lose weight, so salad for breakfast doesn't faze me. Though I try to eat healthy, it often boils down to what I have and what I feel like making. Ramen noodles for breakfast is one of my faves!

I admire your ability to resist that doughnut. If it had been me I might've finished off the box, especially if they were Krispy Kreme glazed!

Had they been Krispy Kreme with the creme filled center... the salad might have lost the battle to the will of sin indulgence too.
