I’m a habitual breakfast skipper. I’ll often make breakfast for my son, and forget to eat my own. Who wants cold eggs and soggy toast? I often have morning deadlines, and I’m always in a rush to get him off to school. I have a bad habit of just having a cup or two of coffee in the morning, and I’m always starving by lunch time.
