Good post. Thank's a lot.
Just one thought as I was reading threw it though
[Quote]In modern society, the word has been co-opted and transformed from a functional definition into a cultural one where breakfast is your morning meal, generally consumed before heading off to work. I expect that this arose as a consequence of industrialisation given that factories thrive on predictability and conformity.[Quote\]
I actually think it caught on so well because, as we know, society are primarily high carb/sugar junkies, mostly without even knowing it due to lack of good information, and so they require a big morning boost/insulin spike to send them on their way otherwise they would not function well at all. I think this is why "breakfast" caught on and is so important from the conventionals standpoint.
But for those few who eat "primely" the need for this morning insulin boost is almost zero hence this whole breakfast thing hardly matters, in fact it can be counterproductive.
