Would You Eat Ice Cream For Breakfast?



I only ask because according to The Telegraph, an English newspaper, eating ice cream for breakfast makes you smarter.

Or so Japanese scientists claim.


“Compared to a group that had not eaten ice cream, Prof Koga’s subjects exhibited faster reaction times and better information-processing capabilities, the Excite News web site reported.

Monitoring of the subjects’ brain activity revealed an increase in high-frequency alpha waves, which are linked to elevated levels of alertness and reduced mental irritation.”




“In 2005, neuroscientists at the Institute of Psychiatry in London scanned the brains of test subjects as they ate vanilla ice cream and saw immediate results.

The study found that eating ice cream activated the same “pleasure spots” of the brain that are lit up by winning money, or listening to a favorite piece of music.

“This is the first time that we’ve been able to show that ice cream makes you happy,” Unilever spokesman Don Darling said at the time.

“Just one spoonful lights up the happy zones of the brain in clinical trials.”

Ice Cream for Breakfast

You can imagine that the food police are all over this like a mouse on cheese! They are not happy!

Just an FYI for you all……….

Would I eat ice cream for breakfast? Yes. I eat what I want when I want. Sometimes I will have spaghetti for breakfast if that is what I want. This is especially true if I have left overs in the fridge. I don’t have to have so called “breakfast food in the morning and so called dinner food in the evening. Some times I just crave some thing and I tend to eat it. The only food I am careful about eating is too much sugar as too much sugar may cause strokes.

So…….what say you?

  • A. The recipe looks great! We make cabbage and noodles. Very similar but no meat.
    B. Heck yeah I’d eat ice cream before breakfast! You bet!

  • When I first visited Australia and went out for breakfast the first morning, I ordered pancakes. I wasn’t paying attention – I’d come 10,000 miles to see if the man was who I perceived him to be. So imagine my surprise when pancakes arrived all steaming hot with ice cream, whipped cream and maple syrup on them.

    I looked at John and I said, “What the hell is this??”

    He said, “You ordered pancakes, didn’t you?”

    I replied that yes I ordered pancakes but who ordered ice cream and whipped cream? Where’s the butter??

    That’s how pancakes come in Australia. They must have talked to the Japanese guy a long time ago.

    I’ve never been fond of cooked cabbage but the sausage and pasta makes it worth a try.
