14 Things That Are Perfectly Acceptable Breakfast Foods, According To Us

If breakfast is really the most important meal of the day, we'd better make sure it's delicious. But we can all agree that the old bacon, eggs and pancakes routine can get a little tired. There are those times when you're staring down either your fridge or a restaurant menu (maybe you over-indulged last night, maybe you're just feeling saucy) when ordinary breakfast food just doesn't sound right to you. Guys, we'd like to encourage you to let your breakfast freak flag fly.

We asked around our office for all of the un-breakfast-y things we turn to time and again for sustenance in the morning, and we're betting you'll identify with a few. It turns out that pasta is basically appropriate for any meal, and that cake and pie are like delicious chameleons. And you listen to us, cold pizza -- don't ever let anyone tell you that you aren't breakfast-appropriate.
