10 Yummy Quotes About Breakfast

Yum! 51

breakfastIs it just me or does breakfast seem to be the most controversial of all the meals? Some people swear it's the most important one of the day, while others don't even bother eating it. Personally, I'm of the former camp. Without breakfast, I'm useless -- cranky, tired, completely ravenous by lunch time. I love breakfast, and breakfast loves me. At least I think it does.

Anyway, in honor of my affinity for this particular meal, here are 10 great quotes about breakfast. Yum.
