Having a bowel movement after the breakfast is actually the most normal thing. It is due to gastro-colic reflex. Food, coming in your stomach, triggers peristalsis of the colon, and you expell the stool from the previous day.
I guess you are ingesting a lot of fibers (vegetables, fruits, cereals, beer...) - this is probably the cause of large stools.
