Since the 'What did you eat today'-thread has become so popular (10 pages so far!), here's another variation: What do you eat really often, like, daily or several times a week?

My current breakfast hang-up is dark rye/sunflower bread with tahini, Streich (see below), cherry tomatoes, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts and avocado. Sometimes I add a little olive oil with fresh garlic.

I like a thick layer of avocado on a slice of grainy bread, with a thin spread of miso, and tomato slices on top. If I'm out of avocado, I spread some home made homas instead of the avocado.

One of my favourite breakfast foods that I regularly eat is toasted organic bread from my local organic grocery store. They have many vegan variations and so far my favourite is the multi-seed sourdough. After I toast it, I put Earth Balance Spread and Strawberry Jam on it. Yum!

Bagels (even though I do take bagel breaks every now and then)
almond butter
peanut butter
pita bread
odwalla peanut butter chocolate chip bars (well I went through a phase... not eating them as frequently now)
cereal (raisin bran)
chocolate (not every day... but typically at least once a week)
coffee

Bananas
Cashew nuts
Marmite


And every day from here, as I've just bought a top juicer, I'll be juicing some combination of fruit and veg. :)

dark rye/sunflower bread

Yes, I like that too - it's mostly imported from Germany so I don't know where that leaves me on the foodmiles though! What is Streich made of, Korn?

We usually have some form of cabbage or broccoli most days, but apart from that it depends what fruit and veg are in season.

We get through a lot of yeast extract too, but we've switched from Marmite to Natex, which is lower in salt.

what is vegemite?

I prefer marmite because sometimes vegemite is not vegan!
foxytina, it is a spread, almost black in colour, that is made from yeast, plus herbs, spices, minerals, vitamins, and derivatives of soy, barley, and wheat. It is salty, and is delicious on homas or avocado.

BTW Banana, the reason I said that sometimes vegemite is not vegan, is because the manufacturers of vegemite, use those same pans to make meat spreads, for 6 months of the year. In both cases, the products refer to Australian manufacture - could be different in the UK and elsewhere.

Just about every day I eat whole wheat bread sprinkled with nutritional yeast with flaxseed oil over it.

By the way, how many of youz are down with Omega-3?

Yuck Eve - are you kidding me!?! I'm just wondering though - just because vegemite is cooked in the same pan as a meat product - does that mean it is contaminated? I'm sure they would thoroughly clean their pans before re-using them to make vegemite. But then again I could be wrong.

Is there somewhere I can read about this. How did you find out about it?

I'm a marmite fan myself, I used to have countless arguments on why it was better than vegemite with an Australian mate of mine, haha

I've even got a Marmite fridge magnet!

Nothing...just plain vegemite!!!! When I was just veggie, I always liked vegemite and cheese...very Australian. They even have Kraft Vegemite cheese slices here...but they are not even vegetarian (rennet)

As a child, I think my brother used to love vegemite just as much as you do today Banana!

He would eat vegemite and cheese and vegemite and lettuce. Even vegemite and honey was big in our house!

I remember when we were both little, I would go into his room to wake him up in the morning and give him a cuddle. He would smell like vegemite because he'd eaten so much of it lol.

Roxy, you said "just because vegemite is cooked in the same pan as a meat product - does that mean it is contaminated? I'm sure they would thoroughly clean their pans before re-using them to make vegemite." You asked how I found out about it.

I got the info from a website where people go to check if products are kosher. As the pans used by Kraft for vegemite contain meat for 6 months of the year, that makes it non-kosher. This may not bother people who are not interested in kosher/non-kosher, but if they consider the pans contaminated by meat, well that's good enough for me!

Kraft Vegemite is suitable 6 months of the year - check if there′s a K by the use-by date - if so it's OK.

Thanks for that info Eve. I buy my vegemite here in Canada, but it is made, and imported from Australia. I just peeled the Canadian import label off my bottle to reveal the original Aussie label. There is no "K" by the used by date, however in bold it says "suitable for vegetarians". I will keep a look out, for that "K" though - that's very interesting. I would prefer to purchase kosher vegemite - perhaps when I find it I can purchase a large jar - because vegemite never goes off.
