In the winter, I usually do hot meals all day long.<br><br>
My dh eats a cold breakfast, my kids eat a cold lunch (dh eats out of a thermos), and we all eat a hot supper.<br><br>
But, me? I'm spoiled, and mine are hot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
About half-and-half on both breakfast and lunch. Breakfast is sometimes yogurt or a bagel, but sometimes eggs and occasionally oatmeal in the winter. Lunch is usually cold if it's freshly made, but we often eat leftovers for lunch. Dinner is almost always hot, except for the occasional "big salad" meal during the warmer months.
Dinner is almost always hot. Since we don't eat much bread (ergo not many sandwiches), lunch is frequently hot - quesadillas, leftovers, soup, etc. Breakfast is hot when there's time, otherwise it's cold cereal, Zone bars, or plain yogurt with honey & homemade granola.
DP often eats a cold breakfast. I can't make myself eat cold food in the morning, so I eat either oatmeal or eggs or something else hot, or nothing for breakfast.<br><br>
If I'm at work, lunch is hot (free healthy delicious lunch at one job<br>
(that I make for everyone lol), and free healthy soup and bread at the other. though I did find that bringing a cold baked sweet potato to suplement prevented me from wanting to buy lunch there for too much money. I sometimes do this). If I'm at home and we have bread, sandwhiches. I LOVE LOVE LOVE sandwhiches, and would happily eat them 3 meals a day for a long while. (heck, I would eat rubans, or cold cheese sandwhiches with sauted onions, butter, mustard, and balsamic vinegrette, or leftover thanksgiving sandwhiches 3 meals a day the same thing every meal for a long time. I would get bored, eventually, but still I love them so). We don't keep a lot of bread or sandwhich food in the house (though we might change that. bread might be expensive, but its way cheaper than eating out at work which I keep doing from soup not being filling enough).<br><br>
DP does both hot and cold lunches as well.<br>
Dinner is almost always hot.
Depends on climate, really. If I'm living somewhere really hot, we tend to eat cold food at all meals. If it's cold weather, we eat more hot food at all meals.<br><br>
Breakfast - Personally, I don't like most cold cereals, except muesli (which I'll eat with yogurt and fresh fruit). Starting the day with a cold bowl of crunchy stuff is just not appealing to me. I'm more likely to have toast or bagels or muffins. I like oatmeal porridge. Lately, I've tried to increase my protein intake at breakfast, which has meant eating eggs more often.<br><br>
Lunch - For me, it's usually a sandwich, but I'll often have salad if it's warm out. I don't like cold salad on cold days. In winter, the kids often take hot food in a thermos for lunch - leftover pasta or soup etc. It's a nice change from sandwiches.<br><br>
Dinner - Usually it's a complete food pyramid meal, but it can be hot or cold, again depending on climate.
Breakfast usually cold, but sometimes we have hot cereal.<br><br>
Lunch is the main meal of the day and pretty much always hot. Dinner is usually hot also, but a smaller meal (pasta & cottage instead of chicken, potatoes & green beans I would serve for lunch).
Breakfast is almost always cold cereal or bagels. Once in a while I make oatmeal or make toast or warm up waffles/pancakes. I almost never actually cook for breakfast - I just don't have the bloody energy at 7 or 8am!!<br><br>
Lunch is a toss up - we do lots of pb&j, tuna fish, etc but we also do mac'n cheese, grilled cheese, quesadillas, chicken nuggets, hotdogs, and leftovers.<br><br>
Dinner is almost always hot. Unless its 'fend for yourself' night, and even then theres usually left overs to reheat or something.
Breakfast is almost always warm. We don't really buy cold cereal so it's either toast and cheese, eggs, or oatmeal for me. DP will sometimes eat yogurt and granola, but I really want something warm in the morning, esp. in winter. In summer I might do yogurt too though.<br><br>
Lunch varies. Sometimes a sandwich, more often reheated leftovers.<br><br>
Dinner is always warm. In winter we even avoid raw salads.
