Eggs, bacon, pancakes, cereal…These are the typical, tried and true breakfast foods. But isn’t it fun to mix it up now and then? A visit to Moo’s Soft Serve (https://www.facebook.com/MoosSoftServe/) has become a yearly tradition on Sunday morning during our family reunion, and I’m not the only one who thinks ice cream for breakfast is a good idea…
“In a discovery that will give nutritionists the shivers, a Japanese scientist has discovered that consuming ice cream for breakfast improves a person’s alertness and mental performance. Yoshihiko Koga, a professor at Tokyo’s Kyorin University, has carried out a series of clinical trials in which test subjects were required to eat ice cream immediately after waking up. They were then put through a series of mental exercises on a computer. Compared to a group that had not eaten ice cream, Prof Koga’s subjects exhibited faster reaction times and better information-processing capabilities, the Excite News web site reported.”
So why do we eat ice cream for breakfast at Moo’s? To put it simply, it’s delicious! We always talk about going to get some after dinner the night before, but we are always too stuffed from enjoying Bunky’s Raw Bar (https://www.bunkysrawbar.com/) or Squid Lips Overwater Bar and Grill (https://www.squidlipsgrill.com/melbourne-squid-lips/). In addition, we are committed to supporting locally owned establishments. Each location noted here will qualify. Plus, it’s just fun to be naughty sometimes. People are creatures of habit, and there appears to be an approved list of breakfast foods. Why? I have no idea!
So tomorrow morning, how about enjoying some leftover pasta for breakfast? Or how about that tender steak from last night? Even better: Those brownies are calling your name. Yes, having dessert for breakfast daily may not be your best nutritional choice, but occasionally, throw caution to the wind and start your day with a piece of cake!
