You would be surprised just how many of my clients ask me to help them come up with a good breakfast to eat in the car. Or maybe you wouldn't.
We all do it. We're all over-scheduled and we're looking to multitask wherever we can. But eating in the car is a symptom of the larger problem that is making us sick and fat:
We are cramming food in wherever we can instead of stopping to use our senses to enjoy food.
We're gulping it back instead of chewing.
We choose convenient, mass-processed sugary, salty, fatty foods--breakfast cookies, shitty "energy" bars, sandwiches loaded with garbage--that we can choke down, rather than enjoying carefully crafted foods, made with care and fresh ingredients and requiring a fork and knife.
And if I were to poll regular car breakfast eaters, I wager the majority of them would report that they're hungry shortly after.
We are devaluing our food and our bodies.
So no, I will not help you come up with a breakfast you can eat in your car. But I will help you come up with an easy-to-prepare breakfast that is tasty and nourishing, and I will press you to carve out five minutes to eat it properly.
