I spend a lot of time apologizing for the things I say when I am hungry.
That's why breakfast, for me, is non-negotiable. It's an insurance policy against saying things I'll regret before my blood-sugar levels have stabilized. When it comes to breakfast, baked goods are my weakness (besides coffee): toast, croissants, heck, even a scone on the weekend. There is one bakery item, though, that you will never see in my life, and that's a muffin. Muffins are the opposite of that stale supermarket birthday cake that looks like a terrible idea but is still strangely delicious. Muffins look like they could be good yet manage to disappoint every time. They pose as breakfast food yet offer all the nutritional benefit of five-day-old cake, leaving me hangrier than before.
