Would You Prefer a Good Breakfast or Extra Sleep?

The folks at Panera Bread just revealed the results to a new survey about breakfast. In their survey they discovered that 73 percent of Americans would choose a good breakfast over an extra 15 minutes of sleep. I found this hard to believe as most of the people I know rarely have the chance to eat breakfast. And as much as I love breakfast — and I do love breakfast — I'd opt for an extra 15 minutes of sleep. So tell me, which would you prefer? A good breakfast or extra sleep?

A good breakfast will give you more energy than a few extra minutes of sleep.

I am not a huge fan of breakfast so I'll take the sleep anytime

Wow, come to think of it, I haven't had breakfast in bed yet. Ever. My dad always insists we go to the table. So yeah, I'll go for that.

I don't usually eat breakfast since it makes me sick to my stomach to eat so soon after waking up so I'd definitely go for the sleep.

I am the biggest breakfast eater. I make sure I eat breakfast every morning, or else I can't function the rest of the day.

If it were between good breakfast and 30 minutes of extra sleep, definitely the sleep. But only 15? I'll take the food instead!

Extra sleep as it has been almost 10 years since I last woke up early for breakfast and do not remember what I am missing.

I find that unless I stayed up REALLY late the night before, the later I sleep, the more tired I feel. Having some time up, making coffee and breakfast, wakes me up much more than sleeping in 20 minutes or so and having to rush. It's really hard to get my but out of bed initially, but I get much more done throughout the rest of the day if I do.

I'd totally take the sleep. I never eat breakfast until a few hours after I'm up anyway...I'll grab a cup of coffee, hit the road, and eat breakfast at work.

I chose sleep - not a morning person, not a big breakfast fan either, BUT my hubby has cooked my breakfast for 25 years and I love it except the hot cereal days. Love the eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, chorizo with potatoes thing but the mush and fruit has got to go. Only eat it cause I have high cholestrol. I'll take lunch and dinner foods any day over breakfast foods especially the waffles and pancakes.

Breakfast in bed is the ideal choice. I definitely pick sleep during the week, but on the weekend, breakfast all the way (as this usually includes delicious waffles and such!).

Can a morning person make me breakfast while I sleep more?

This is a trick question. The question should be which would you prefer: a really good breakfast cooked by someone else or 15 extra minutes of sleep. I wouldn't choose the breakfast if I had to cook it. But if someone brought it to me in bed...well, I guess I'd have to get up and enjoy it.

I'd totally choose the breakfast if it was made for me... but I'd too lazy to wake up to make it myself.

Coming from a total morning person, I'd take any breakfast, especially a good one, any day of the week! Mmm.

Cooking and eating a good breakfast takes more than 15 mins, If only I could get up earlier...

I wish I could eat a great breakfast in the mornings, but I just can't get out of bed.

If we're only talking about sacrificing 15 minutes of sleep, then I would absolutely choose breakfast, despite the fact that my alarm goes off at 5:15am. 5:00 it would be! The problem is that a GOOD breakfast (definition: better than my normal bowl of Corn Flakes) requires more than 15 minutes to make myself and eat. But if I could manage have it made, consumed, and cleaned up in 15 minutes total upon rolling out of bed, I'd be all for it!
