5 Reasons Why Breakfast Dates Trump Dinner Dates Anyday

Why aren't breakfast dates a normal thing?

482

Food dates are my favorite kinds of dates, but that's probably because I'm a huge fan of food. But breakfast dates are by far the best, when it's early in the morning and you're both still sleepy and hungry, but want to spend time with each other; it is wonderful. I've noticed, however, that I rarely see young people out on breakfast dates and that the majority of people in the diners are older couples or families. It makes me wonder why breakfast dates aren't a thing and why more couples or first dates aren't going out to breakfast more often. Here are some reasons why I love breakfast dates and some pretty good reasons why it should be a more normal thing.

1. You can go in your pajamas/sweats.

You can literally roll out of bed and go to breakfast. Sure, you can actually get dressed, but the best part about going out to breakfast in the early morning is that you won't look weird going into the place in your pajamas or sweats. You don't need to dress up in something fancy or make sure your hair and makeup is spot on. Just imagine if you went on a dinner date in something like that...the looks you might get. So, why not go someplace where you can be comfy while eating good food.

2. Breakfast food is incredibly delicious.

Let's be honest, there is nothing better than breakfast foods. Pancakes, French toast, bacon, waffles, eggs and so much more. There is just so much to choose from and it is absolutely delicious. Plus, most diners will allow you to substitute a lot of things for whatever you might be craving that morning.

3. It's so much cheaper.

Imagine going out to dinner and ordering the "normal" dinner things, like an appetizer, entrée and maybe a dessert. Depending on where you might go, your bill for two can vary anywhere from $50 to close to $100. Sometimes, it can cost you even more, especially if you can be legally served alcohol. However, going on a breakfast date will get you a meal for so much cheaper. At diners, you can get so much food for around $20 for two people.

4. You have the entire day.

After dinner dates, there’s really not much to do afterwards. But, after breakfast dates, you literally have your entire day left ahead of you. You can spend it with the person you went on the breakfast date with and go on adventures, or you can have it to yourself and get done whatever you need to or just sit and relax.

5. There's less pressure.

Going out to breakfast and being in your sweats is just so much more comfortable than dinner dates. Not just physically more comfortable, but the energy as well. There's just something about being around someone in that sleepy state and in comfy clothes rather than making sure you look your best that makes things way easier. There isn't that pressure to look perfect, and conversation is really so much easier in the morning for some reason.


So, next time you have a date, go out to breakfast. Don't get dressed for real, go in your sweats or even your pajamas. Don't do your hair and makeup, look natural. Share your food with your date if you can't decide. But go to breakfast...you won't be disappointed.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
