Breakfast is usually same, protein shake and meal bar.

Lunch varies most, either Chipotle, Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, burger/fries, sushi, noodle soup, pizza, etc.

Dinner usually rice with something.

Most breakfasts will be either an egg or cheese & a slice of toast or an English muffin.

Lunch in the summer is salads. I vary the veg & the proteins alot. In the winter I tend to make a large pot of vegetabel soup & we will eat that all week. So lots of fresh veg all year long.

Dinners are whatever we have, a protein, veg & a small starch. No set menus, but I do vary as I go.

I'm not a picky eater, but when fixing my own meals, I'm perfectly happy eating the same things over and over.

Breakfast is fruit and yogurt, and usually a piece of toast a little later in the morning.

Lunch is steamed vegetables and maybe a few bites of whatever was left over from dinner.

I do cook a completely different dinner every night. I probably have 30-40 family-approved meals I choose from, and I try new recipes regularly. Planning and shopping for these meals uses up any desire I have to think about food. When I found out my sister made a different cooked breakfast every morning, and had something different for lunch every day, the very idea made me feel tired. That's putting way too much time and effort into eating.

We eat out all the time but the things we eat at home or our Monday beach picnics don't vary much.

I make the NY Times roast chicken with mashed cauliflower on Sunday nights and we take hard boiled eggs, roast turkey breast, and Ezekiel bread to the beach on Mondays.

The rest of the week it is whatever.

We like just about everything, but I’m not an adventurous cook. If I want any kind of ethnic, besides Italian, we get carry out. I will dabble with exotic spices once in awhile, but not often.

Breakfast is bacon and eggs or pancakes on weekends. Cereal or a bagel the rest of the time.
Lunches are leftovers from dinner.
Dinners are almost always Italian once a week, fish once a week, meat potatoes and vegetables the rest of the time. Variety would be a casserole or liver and onions, or a turkey breast instead of chicken.

Glad to see so many adventurous cookers.

Breakfast is usually bone broth for me. Lunch is some nuts or maybe a leftover. Hubby has a business lunch almost daily, so I don't need to keep lunch stuff here for him. For dinner, I rarely repeat a recipe, unless I really love it. And I experiment on guests all the time. I prob have 140+ spices

My kids all are adventurous eaters and I often forget this when we have friends over and end up scrambling to pull out and amend some part of dinner for the visiting kids

Extremely varied diet. But I try to alternate between Meat and vegetables. One day Meat / Chicken/ Fish and the other day it will be beans/potatoes/vegetables / pulses. I try to cook food every night and will use the leftovers for next day Lunch.

Today I had Fried Okra with Tortillas.

Tomorrow night I am thinking of having Liver Fry !!!

Always totally random as the moods strike. Spontaneous is the word.

^^^^^^ Yay! My kind of a guy!!!!! ^^^^^^

My cooking never base on recipes. All I need is a picture or personal experience eating something what I want to duplicate at home.
Adventurous eaters unite!!!
