One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast."
-Robert A. Heinlein, Friday
That's how important the first meal of your day should be for you. But we all know it isn't. Most of us just grab anything that comes our way and hurriedly gobble it while rushing for work. Then we make up by gorging on buttery parathas or oily noodles from the nearest Chinese van to compensate for a poorly consumed morning meal.
Breakfast can make or break your day - one doesn't realize this until you make it a daily habit and only then will you feel the difference. It's the fuel that charges you up and keeps you going for the rest of the day. After the night long hibernation mode that the body stays in, your morning meal is like a launch button that supplies energy to your system and keeps you pepped up for the day ahead.
A traditional western breakfast was loaded with bacon, eggs, pancakes, sausages - rich on palate but stacked with calories. In the recent past there has been a sudden surge in the healthy breakfast options. People have become doubly aware of the significance of good and wholesome breakfast in their daily diet plan.Tailor made breakfast options have therefore gained popularity. Now you have healthier options creeping on to your breakfast table, straight into your plate- from whole-wheat breads, oats pancakes to quinoa salads and soy milk.
