Spiky hair, sunglasses, and a huge personality are all traits of the fun-loving Guy Fieri. Remember the old saying that you are what you eat? Well, apply that logic to this Food Network hero and suddenly his seemingly crazy antics, reactions, and mannerisms all become a little more clear when we take a look at his breakfast routine. Spoiler: It’s 100 percent egg-free!

Our friends over at PopSugar had a chat with those who know Mr. Fieri best. When they asked how he liked his eggs for breakfast, camp Fieri replied with a surprising response: He doesn’t eat eggs!

Instead, Mr. Fieri is all about the ham, grits, and red-eye gravy. If you’ve never tasted the deliciousness that is red-eye gravy, it’s another way to add an extra jolt to your morning routine. Coffee (and more often espresso) is used to deglaze a pan after cooking up tasty ham bits. Next, flour and butter are added to the liquid and a thick, wonderful gravy is formed. It’s magical, to say the least.

I’m pretty sure that if I started my morning off with something similar, my hair might suddenly start to stand on end as well!
