Breakfast Menu After Retirement

Post by Dug » Fri Aug 09, 2019 6:18 am

I am on the 1 year countdown to retirement and had a fun wondering. For the last 25 + years Mon-Fri before heading to work, I eat oatmeal with NF yogurt, chopped almonds and a banana. On weekends and vacations, I splurge and never eat oatmeal.
For those retired creatures of habit, did your breakfast eating habits change once you retired?

While working I only had coffee on the weekends. Now I have 2 cups every morning.

My splurge is having a nice breakfast, a omelet or skillet type at a local restaurant during the week, while watching all the working folks run the rat race! :)

I make myself a latte at home. Maybe some fruit.

Once in a while I eat out. Scrambled eggs and hash browns are a favorite.

Nothing about breakfast has changed for me. I even take the same breakfast on backpacking trips to prepare while out on the trail:

Oatmeal, ground flax, protein powder, walnuts, fruit (fresh or dried; blueberries or craisins) with Dr Pepper for the liquid --- all cooked in a big bowl in a special way as described years ago at bogleheads.org:
viewtopic.php?p=2242092#p2242092

The special way is guaranteed to give one awesome abs. I've graduated from crunches to Russian twists though. Progress!

Only a little bit. For years it's been 2 oz. of a blend of whole grain organic cereals with as little added sugar as I can find (which is getting tougher to do all the time); 1 banana, 3-4 oz. of blueberries, sometimes also with raspberries and/or blackberries on the cereal; 1 or 2 hard boiled eggs, deviled with yogurt or skyr, fancy mustard and horseradish; 1 cup of coffee with half & half.

Since retirement, maybe once or twice a week I take the time to have the eggs in an omelet with caramelized onions, cheese slivers and fresh herbs if I've got 'em (basil or rosemary).

I'm not retired yet. But I look forward to changing my breakfast. Right now it's oat burgers with cut veggies. Generally carrots. Sometimes jicama and cucumbers.

When retired I will go back to having my mid-morning salad. I'm only allowed to eat finger foods at my desk at work :(

I've never been one to scarf down breakfast, even before heading out to work. I enjoy spending time over a nice continental breakfast with an apple (or berries in season). In retirement, that daily ritual can last for a couple of hours. The newspaper has been replaced by news on the iPad.

Steelcut Oatmeal, mixed with ground flaxseed & chia seeds, protein powder, walnuts, and fruit (dried or fresh blueberries usually), and raisins or dates (chopped). All topped with a splash of Almond milk. This menu is usually 4-5 days week, mixed in with homemade pancakes once a week for a splurge, and a dine-out breakfast of an omelet or scrambled eggs.

Most mornings are cereal or a granola bar plus a low fat yogurt.

Three mornings a week I go to exercise class and I stop at McDonald's drive thru on the way home to pick up an order of scrambled eggs (it's not on their menu, but I've gotten it from several different McDonald's. It costs $1.90 at mine.) and two fruit 'n yogurt parfaits. One of the yogurts is for breakfast, one is for later.

Breakfast M-F consists of oatmeal w/spoonful of peanut butter, raisins, and ground cinnamon. Occasionally when blueberries are on BOGO at Publix, blueberries instead of raisins.

Saturday is cup of yogurt, or a couple of slices of cranberry nut bread w/butter or cream cheese.

Sunday is bagel and cream cheese.

If daughters and their families are over on Saturday morning or Sunday morning, nice brunch with mimosas. :thumbsup :thumbsup

Every morning is a pot of coffee.

Breakfast hasn't changed since retirement: Oatmeal with blueberries and walnuts. Now I have the time to go to Costco for the blueberries! I used to add a splash of milk, but I've changed to either soy milk, almond milk or Oatly.

Weekdays: two soft-boiled eggs, 1/2 cup of oatmeal, no sugar, cinnamon, varying nuts usually walnuts and/or seeds and fruit usually blueberries (frozen in winter).

Weekends: 2-3 slices of bacon, substitute two fried eggs in the bacon grease (yum) and english muffins or bagels. Can't be healthy all the time!

Used to be more lazy when working. More breakfast sandwiches and bagels.

Before retirement my favorite breakfast was a platter of hashbrowns, generous sausage gravy, 3 eggs sunny side up, sausage links, and thick cut homemade Italian toast. Not everyday, just weekends. After retiring somehow...somehow...I became allergic to eggs! Damn!
Now breakfast is an open face sandwich with homemade bread (toasted), lunchmeat, cheese, and tomatoes.

I still have coffee and oatmeal first thing.

After I walked to work every morning I'd get coffee and a cranberry muffin in the cafeteria. I miss those muffins now that I'm retired.

I also IF 18:6. I break my fast around noon with a vegetable cheese omelet fried in butter or bacon fat. I like green olives with my omelet. Sometimes I break my fast with homemade bone broth with a little heavy whipping cream. I will add a nice salad with this.

Best wishes,

The best thing about retirement is that I am not in a hurry to get to work; consequently, I can take the time to prepare whatever suits me on that day. My only limitation is what food is in the refrigerator or pantry.

Been retired since Jan 1.

I eat nothing for breakfast now.

Stopped drinking coffee and tea too!

A light lunch, and then a splurge on dinner is a typical day now.

I've stayed Boglehead simple in retirement: oatmeal or oat bran, banana, whole wheat toast with low-fat spread, water. Sounds boring, but I look forward to it every day - so far.

Still working, but have cut back. Don't usually go in til 10.

Weekdays, almost always skip breakfast. Will make myself a double cappuccino at home, then another coffee at the office. Very occasionally, a protein shake.

Weekends, usually eggs and vegetables mid morning. Very occasionally, and only on a Sunday, buckwheat pancakes with nuts and blueberries.

On most days, 2 jumbo eggs with vegetables and a little protein like ham + a banana. I'm reducing my intake of oatmeal. Although it has fiber, it has a fair amount of carbs and I'm hungry quicker than when I have the eggs.

Pre retirement breakfast was 3 cups of 1/2 caffeine coffee, early am workout, then at work oatmeal/1% milk/1/2 chopped apple/cinnamon/cardamom premade Sunday evening. Since retiring I've switched to two large eggs fried in butter after working out. Keeps me full till lunch, even if I am hiking all morning.

No much. Most days I eat what I ate while working. Some days we walk to a local restaurant and have a larger breakfast.

If you eat what you like for breakfast while you are working, why would that change once retired?

I'm not retired, but my breakfast has rather recently changed from a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats With Almonds and whole milk to a cup of Columbia light roast caramel coffee brewed in a French press with two tablespoons of Almond Roca creamer. Mmmm.... :mrgreen:

This has reduced my morning caloric intake from about 500 calories to about 70, and it gets me through to lunch most days unless I'm physically exerting myself significantly.

Breakfast is a few cups of Kona coffee. Lots of our wonderful well water (fasting) until the afternoon (usually 3-6PM). Then low carb meals for a few hours.

I do miss oatmeal with 6 fried eggs, and will occasionally splurge with that for breakfast.

I ate crappy my entire life. It wasn't until my mid-forties that I started to eat healthy :oops:

I have experimented with different things, but found that steel cut oats with blueberries, strawberries, ground flaxseed, and ceylon cinnamon works the best. I often add two poached eggs as well. It's a big breakfast but I feel the best throughout the day when I eat this every morning.

So no, I will not be changing my breakfast menu after retirement in a couple years. I will however occasionally splurge with hash browns, pancakes, etc.!

Lots of oatmeal mentions in this thread. Add me to the list.

After morning workout, fix up oatmeal with protein powder, cinnamon, Splenda, and nuts. And two handfuls of raisins. Have done the same breakfast for about 10 years, both before and in retirement.

Not retired but it wouldn't make a difference. Coffee black with:
- Ozery "Morning Round" toasted with a little almond butter (not much needed since it melts on the toasted round)
- Overnight oats with cocoa powder, chia seeds, flax seeds, and unsweetened almond coconut milk (eaten while chilled not heated). Key on this one is watching the portion size on the oats to keep it around 250 calories. Make sure the seeds don't spill, what a mess!

No, just one cup of black coffee, both before and after retirement. When I worked, I was forced to eat earlier than I wanted at lunchtime, as my workmates were always anxious to get to lunch early. Now in retirement, I normally don't eat calories until usually at least 4 hours after I wake (not counting the 10 calories or so in a black cup of coffee).

Do people generally do a little exercise at gym or walking before breakfast or after?
For the IF'ers do you exercise prior to breaking the fast later in the day, or do you wait until after you've eaten something?
just wondering, because I usually do not exercise until after I've had something to eat (usually oatmeal and coffee).
But I've been wondering about the IF routine too. Does skipping dinner (just having water) count?

I don't eat breakfast regularly since I am mostly convinced by the arguments about intermittent fasting and decreasing insulin.

When I have breakfast it is usually a typical Vietnamese breakfast like noodle soup, phở or bún bò Huế, or maybe rice with a pork chop (cơm tấm).

I exercise before breaking the fast. It can take a few times to become adjusted to it; I did light cardio for a while until my body adapted.

Skipping dinner counts. The idea is not to restrict calories (“Delay, Don’t Deny”), but to [... I decided not to stray into what mods might consider medical advice].

My exercise is on the more intense side and I can't exercise properly after eating anyway... my minimum fast (assuming I ate a regular meal) before gym would be 2 hours, 3 hours before running ... and better if even longer.

If one is determined, one could turn salad into finger food. Whole cherry tomatoes. Whole baby carrots. Cucumber spears. Half a lettuce leave, cut alone the rib. Etc. Dressing in a separate bowl that you dip things into. Essentially, veggies and dip.
