Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Why, there’s nothing starts the day off right like a healthy breakfast. Don’t you think?

Take this meal for example. There’s no meat, no wheat, no dairy, no animal products, no grains or preservatives. Looks like a healthy breakfast, walks like a healthy breakfast but still kind of quacks like a duck. Probably the only thing missing is a decaf soy flat white.

It’s the concept of breakfast, but it’s not breakfast.

Personally, I think that a good concept is the basis of everything, it’s the sui generis energy that brings a great end product.

I mean, we’ve all had breakfast a thousand times, but what is it that really makes it a meal?

Gotta run – I smell bacon cooking.

    Tasty! I really did enjoy the almond croissant I had for breakfast this morning, – with butter and raspberry jam.

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Superb work!|
