What Your Favorite Breakfast Food Says About You

You don't truly know someone until you learn what they eat for breakfast. After all, it's the first thing they think of when their thoughts have barely formed and they're at the mercy of their stomachs. Rather than sit down and ask each other pointless questions in an attempt to understand their personality traits, simply take a peek at what they're preparing (or not preparing) for the first meal of the day. You're sure to learn a lot.

If this person had a motto, it would be "YOLO!" Everyone knows pancakes aren't very healthy - nor do they do much good for the waistline. But this person values taste over everything else. He is slightly hedonistic, with maple bliss as his main vice. He's also a person who will spend extra time nailing the details of a project before unveiling it. After all, fluffy, wonderful pancakes take time to master - and he's more than willing to spend it on a good cause.

Bagel with Cream Cheese
When a bagel with cream cheese is a person's go-to breakfast food, it only means good things. He's most likely practical and relatively low maintenance. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it can be eaten on the go, which leads to a simple, streamlined morning. Keep him around for good measure - unless he's one of those picky bagel eaters. Those who request extra light veggie cream cheese and demand their bagels be toasted twice over for optimal crunch are the complete opposite of the classic bagel eaters and taint their good reputation.

Egg Sandwich
Those who prefer egg sandwiches know how to treat themselves without going overboard. They'll have bacon, but only when it's balanced with a good source of protein. These are well-balanced, even-tempered individuals who make great friends. You can always count on them to keep the peace and go with the flow.

Cereal with Milk
This is a tough one, as there are many types of cereal, and they all point to vastly different character traits. For instance, the breakfast eater who pours artificially flavored sugar puffs into a huge tub of whole milk is completely different from the consumer who snacks on fiber flakes with a dash of low-fat dairy. At the end of the day, though, they're both traditional individuals who value their upbringing and seek order in their lives - even if it involves heaping servings of marshmallows before 9 a.m.

Granola and Yogurt
These people are essentially cereal people who have grown up. After all, granola and cereal are quite similar, as are yogurt and milk. When people start their days with this slight tweak on a common breakfast food, it usually means they're refined and educated. They know that yogurt is packed with healthy ingredients, and depending on what kind of granola they choose, that's likely a health-conscious choice as well. Look to them for advice - not just for breakfast food - but general life guidance as well.

Coffee... and Only Coffee
Those who skip breakfast altogether and instead drink a cup of coffee are an interesting breed. They're typically always running late and and make exorbitant New Year's resolutions - usually ones that involve eating breakfast and maintaining a well balanced diet. But, they mean well. If you know one of these people, simply throw a granola bar their way and brew them a tasty batch of coffee using the Mr. Coffee® Smart Optimal Brew™ 10-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Wemo®. You'll have more than enough coffee for both of you to drink and start your day the right way.
