I'm declaring that fruitcake is a good breakfast food. First of all, eating fruitcake makes me feel good and puts a smile on my face. How can that be bad for me?

Secondly, fruitcake is loaded with fruit. Mostly raisins and currants. There must be tons of antioxidants in each bite. To say nothing of all that vitamin C preventing scurvy. Scurvy is a nasty affliction.

Thirdly, and lastly, there are nuts in fruitcake. Nuts are a good source of protein. Protein keeps my muscles strong, so I can lift the fruitcake. It's like the circle of life.


  1. I have been known to eat fruitcake for breakfast - it goes so well with the morning coffee. And you're reasonings are sound, Lu! I'll give you another 'excuse' - eating fruitcake for breakfast gives you all day to burn off those calories, whereas eating it after supper doesn't!

  2. Brilliant reasoning, Janet. Unfortunately it doesn't take into account the sugar cookies and pecan fingers and chocolates that were eaten after supper. Should I eat all my desserts for breakfast? Is that what you're suggesting?
