Todd: So, Adrienne, what did you have for breakfast today?

Adrienne: This morning, I forgot to eat breakfast.

Todd: Nothing! You had nothing?

Adrienne: I had grapefruit juice.

Todd: Grapefruit juice! That’s not a very healthy breakfast.

Adrienne: I know. Don’t tell my mother.

Todd: I’m gonna tell her. She’s gonna listen. She’s gonna hear this on ELLLO and she’s gonna be very upset.

Adrienne: Please don’t tell my mother. You’re right. She’ll be very upset if she hears that.

Todd: Mothers know we must have breakfast.

Adrienne: Hmm.

Todd: I never miss breakfast. So normally, when you do have breakfast, what do you have?

Adrienne: Ah, usually I have yogurt and fruit.

Todd: Yogurt!

Adrienne: Yes.

Todd: Now, do you get like the fruit-swirly kind or do you just get the plain white yogurt?

Adrienne: No, no, I like the plain.

Todd: Oh, really.

Adrienne: Really. The sweetened yogurt tastes to chemical to me. It’s got all kinds of strange sweeteners and things in it that I don’t like, so I prefer to buy plain yogurt. Maybe sweeten it myself with honey or molasses or fruit, something natural. It tastes better.

Todd: Well, what fruit do you put in your yogurt? Do you put the fruit in the yogurt or do you have it separate?

Adrienne: I don’t know. It depends on if I’m in a hurry I guess.

Todd: Right. Right. So assuming that you cook breakfast sometimes…

Adrienne: Rarely.

Todd: OK. But when you do cook breakfast, what do you make?

Adrienne: My favorite breakfast to cook is spinach and cheese omelet

Todd: That sounds good.

Adrienne: It’s really good – with turkey bacon and hash-browns.

Todd: Turkey bacon!

Adrienne: Yeah.

Todd: So is that bacon that tastes like turkey, or…

Adrienne: Bacon made out of turkey meat.

Todd: Does it have the fat and stuff just like the normal bacon?

Adrienne: Yeah, it’s not as fatty. I think that’s why I like it so it’s crunchier. It’s crispier.

Todd: OK

Adrienne: So to me it’s has a better taste, but a lot of people really dislike it, so you have to…. it ‘s kind of an acquired taste I guess.

Todd: Right. Right.

Adrienne: But my mom often cooks turkey bacon in with the regular bacon for breakfast for everyone so that you can’t really tell the difference cause it has that bacon fat taste to it, so it kind of defeats the purpose of being healthy about the bacon but, anyway.

Todd: Yeah, but it tastes good. That’s all that matters.

Adrienne: For a big breakfast like that, it’s true.
