Gen Z Killed Breakfast Culture

Smoothies are so popular now, Gen Z has even skipped on chewing.

Health classes engraved in students’ brains that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I’m sure it is. You get enough energy to carry you out for the beginning of the day. However, I don’t find myself eating my first meal until 1:30 in the afternoon.

The Nocturnal Body Clock Doesn’t Have An Alarm

We are usually awake when George Lopez airs on Nickelodeon (that’s 4 a.m btw) and not up until corporate lunchtime. It all depends on the lifestyle of course. I rot in my bed for the majority of the morning. That’s my fault; I don’t have the Youtube beauty guru morning routine. I don’t hit the gym (like ever) and I don’t have morning shifts at my job. If I don’t have anywhere to be, I am not waking up at the crack of dawn (8 a.m.)

Who decided on breakfast times?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with breakfast food. Pancakes, bacon, and even cereal are amazing. I can never go wrong with a bowl of Froot Loops. However, I just don’t have the appetite to eat breakfast in the morning (if I was awake.) Breakfast hours are absurd for someone who wants to eat french toast during the afternoon news.

The biggest casualty I’ve experienced in my life is McDonald's getting rid of All-Day Breakfast. I don’t understand why I can’t order Hotcakes at 3 p.m. I’m sure their profits would soar even higher. Isn’t that a franchise's dream?

Diners get it. Your local diner will satisfy your omelet needs at any given time of the day. They are the heart and soul of this country. They don’t care if you order over-easy eggs with a side of mozzarella sticks at 10 p.m. Who would? The people who constructed breakfast times would. Screw them.

Maybe you should think about the reasons that you skip breakfast. If you eat breakfast, good for you too. We can all agree to thank our drive-thru and diner heroes to satisfy our needs.
