So what’s for breakfast? This is most probably the first question that comes to your mind when you wake up in the morning. True to its meaning "breaking the fast", it is the first ever meal you will eat after a night's sleep. Often eaten in the early morning before going to school or work, this meal is cited as the most important meal of the day. Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast perform better in their school tests or work. The foods prepared differ widely in each region and is actually easier than you might think, no matter how busy you are. Just aim to incorporate the essential components that usually include carbohydrate-rich grains, cereals, rice or bread, fruit and/or vegetables, protein-rich eggs or meat, and a beverage like tea, coffee or fruit juice. This combo breakfast meal will help satisfy your hunger and will keep you feeling full until lunch time.
Try to make variations in the foods you served every morning. The whole family especially the kids must have a pleasant experience with this meal to full appreciate breakfast. Alternate coffee, tea or fresh fruit juice paired with bacon or sausage. Prepare in advance some homemade pastries. In addition to homemade on-the-go foods, keep whole fresh fruit, yogurt, whole grain cereals or oat meals as well as whole grain breads and peanut butter for quick sandwiches. Just keep in mind that any food is good when consumed in moderation. Wanna try new good starter meals? Take a look with these quick, easy and delicious breakfast recipes below.
