    Not specifically breakfast, but...
    Pumpkin and pear soup
    2T oil
    1 onion, diced
    1T curry powder
    500g butternut pumpkin, skin on, diced
    2 very ripe brown pears, peeled, diced (I never peel, but it's really hard to get the texture smooth with the skin on, so up to you)
    3.5c chicken or vegetable stock
    Saute onion in oil until soft, about 5 mins. Add curry powder and stir for a minute, then add pumpkin and pear, and saute another 5 mins. Add stock, bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer until pumpkin is tender. Blend until smooth.

    For us it was crackers. My MIL wanted crackers with dinner. Who the heck eats crackers with dinner?

    When you overhear someone in a cafe refusing to order their child yogurt and muesli for breakfast and insisting they have to have something healthy like eggs and bacon

    They put more effort into planning, preparing, and packing compliant meals for a weekend away than they do packing. And they come out of it less stressed than in pre-Whole30 days.

    Your make-up bag doesn't contain makeup, only travel sized bottles containing olive oil and balsamic vinegar so you don't have to rely on restaurant salad dressings.

    you have this conversation with the waitress at a Kountry Kitchen in rural PA while on a business road trip with a colleague after ordering a salad.
    Me: "Do you have olive oil and red wine vinegar?"
    Her: "Yes"
    Me: "Is it olive oil? I have to have olive oil. If its canola oil or some other kind of oil, It bothers my stomach a lot. Are you sure its olive oil?"
    Her: "Im pretty sure its olive oil. I can check with the cooks in the back. They would know. You want me to check?"
    Me: "Thats ok just give me the red wine vinegar. Does it have sugar in it?"
    Her: "I'll bring you the bottle" She brings me the bottle and sure enough its just regular red wine vinegar, nothing added.
    Her: "By the way, I did check with the cook. He said it is canola oil!"
    She was the sweetest most patient waitress ever!

    My fav is still the one about not licking our fingers. That makes me laugh every time.
    Last week I made oatmeal cookies with my daughter for a camp party and she asked if she could lick my fingers since I wasn't going to.
