I have a confession. I eat weird things for breakfast. Today, it was two pieces of leftover pizza with pickles and prosciutto. Last week, I had a grilled brie and tomato sandwich one day and fried rice the next.
Breakfast of champions? Yeah, I know it’s debatable. But at least I make sure I eat a meal every morning.
I used to think a cup of coffee or nothing at all would suffice. But sure enough, as all the studies prove, I was just irritable, distracted and prone to eating something that lived in a vending machine before lunchtime hit.
Jennifer Causey doesn’t have that problem. The professional photographer from New York loves breakfast. The beauty she finds in her daily obsession is translated into eye-catching photos that she posts on her blog, Simply Breakfast.

Last year, she turned it into an 80-page book.
Who knew a cup of tea and a piece of buttered toast could look so good? Even cottage cheese and a hard-boiled egg seem appetizing through Causey’s lens.
The site is also a good reference for those of us who moan that we don’t know what to have for the first meal of the day.
What’s your breakfast of choice?
