The most important meal of the day (at Heaven 'N Eggs)

All my life (and probably everyone else's), I've heard it said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. If not by my parents, it would be magazines that advised me that eating breakfast would help me lose weight, that it will help me think better during the day, that it will energize me properly, and so on and so forth.

It is not always easy to find time to eat breakfast though, as I (like a lot of other people) would rather hit the snooze button again to catch a few more zzz's, than get up earlier to grab a bite to eat so early in the day.

Well, the older I got, the more I realized that the reason this cliche is a cliche, is that there is some truth to it. I found that I just functioned better when I had something in my tummy to fuel me in the morning.

One way for me to be more diligent at having this oh-so-important meal is to make sure that I have something good to eat. This is not always easy as a pescetarian, because I do not eat many of the dishes that are usually found on the Filipino's breakfast table, such as tapa, tocino, longganiza, corned beef, and adobo (in other words, most of the things you can add the suffix "-silog" to).

So at home, I make sure that I have some of my favorite cereal and milk that takes almost zero time to prepare (twenty five seconds flat to open the box, put the cereal in a bowl, and add milk).

When I am able to wake up early enough though, one of my favorite breakfasts out is the Smoked Fish and Spinach Miracle at Heaven 'N Eggs. The smoked fish and egg go so well with the garlic rice that comes with the meal, and the spinach gives you a sense of having eaten something healthy.

One thing though, I noticed that they are not consistent with the amount of spinach that goes into the eggs. I really like spinach, so I get very disappointed when I find that there is sometimes less of it when I order this dish. I've learned to ask them to add a little more spinach when I have it, just to make sure that I will enjoy it as I usually do.

The Smoked Fish and Spinach Miracle

April 19- P.S. I just went to Heaven 'N Eggs, and I was told they don't carry this on the menu anymore. I asked if I could still order it, and they obliged. There's no harm in asking :)

If you ever go to Heaven 'N Eggs and you don't see this on the menu, try asking the servers if they can make it for you :)
