- Breakfast is now one of nearly five meals a day.
I'll admit, I occasionally dabble in what hobbits refer to as "second breakfast." And I've certainly never let a good brunch get in the way of lunch. But I still think I've got a lot of fork shoveling to do to catch up with the average American. Ad Age talked to
Hillshire Brands' Chief Innovation Officer Sally Grimes about our eating habits, and she dropped the anchor that Americans are now consuming 4.9 meals (including snacks) per day [via Gawker
Grimes opined on our love for quick and easy meat products (if you need proof, perhaps this Jimmy Dean sausage rant can convince you), but had no comment on the possibility of a bacon hot dog. If ever a food was destined for the rollers at the gas station, it's a hot dog stuffed with bacon. OK, readers, time to confess. How many meals are you eating in a day?
