There are some phenomenally successful people in the world who eat the same thing every day. The author of this blog post, for instance recommends having a breakfast of just oatmeal and apples to increase his productivity. How is it even related?
You know that what you have in the breakfast can really impact your entire day? A breakfast is not something that you have just for the sake of it. It is the right tool for your body engine. You get your energy from your breakfast.
So in order to arrive at the perfect formula – what sort of breakfast works best for you – you need to stick to that. This is what the writer in the above-mentioned link has achieved. He found that a mix of oatmeal and apples works great for him and from then onwards, he never alters his breakfast.
And anyway, if you want to prepare your own breakfast, it can be a great energy drain to simply decide what you want to have. It is not as easy as it sounds, especially when having breakfast decides how creative and productive you’re going to be for the rest of your day. So, many people think, why take a chance? When you already know that what is the right breakfast for you, why try out different things and run the risk of spoiling your entire day? Better stick to a single combination.
Having a single breakfast is not as outlandish as it may seem. There are many communities in the world who have very little food options, so each day they are eating basically the same thing. Just imagine how much time they save. Supposed you don’t have money to purchase food from market and you eat only what is available around you, whatever grows, or whatever you can get. In nature, there aren’t many options. It’s in the cities that we become so choosy about what to eat and what not to eat.
Knowing exactly what you’re going to have in the morning can be liberating and it can also help you move towards the sort of minimalism you’re trying to attain. Many people have experienced that once they have decided to stick to a single breakfast every day, they can save up to 30 minutes. Of course, the most important aspect is, that once you know which breakfast combination gives you the maximum amount of energy and drive, you can rest assured every day, that you are going to get the same every day.
