I went to bed around 6 in the morning and had 'breakfast' before sleeping. I woke up after lunch and felt like eating breakfast again. Its often said, whether rightly or wrongly, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.Wikipedia defines breakfast as the first meal taken after rising from a night's sleep, most often eaten in the early morning before undertaking the day's work. According to the definition I perhaps ate breakfast twice and skipped lunch, so I had the most important meal of the day twice. My day turned out relatively productive so maybe two breakfast did help!
