Breakfast is for the Birds

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And yet, every adventurer skips it in Dungeons & Dragons. Rations are sold and counted per day not per meal, so you open up the pack of preserves and eat your fill. This is especially unusual during adventures that involve a lot of overland travel. Adventurers can travel for 8 hours each day before risking exhaustion, and then rest for 8 hours. That’s only 16 hours. What happens to the other 8 hours during the day? But do they spend a couple hours in the morning having a breakfast and a nice long lunch at midday? Nope. Never.
