‘The Most Important Meal of the day’ This probably won’t be your first time hearing this. You must have been force fed this phrase alongside your breakfast (as you sat on your dining with half closed eyes) by your mum every time you showed tantrums in waking up and eating. Every household has witnessed this morning scene. And we wish to tell you that your mom’s right (like always!). Here’s why.
The word Breakfast comes by putting together break + fast. It literally means breaking the night long observed fast post dinner (unless you are munching some snacks at midnight while writing an article :p). Breakfast fuels one for the day ahead. Studies reveal having breakfast, and a proper one, jump starts metabolism, prevents lethargy, and other feelings of restlessness, irritation, tiredness by providing good energy. It also helps maintain healthy sugar levels and keeps risks of diabetes at bay. Not only this, it also helps with weight management and prevents the chances of being overweight.
We believe these bunch of benefits must have convinced you about 50% to have a good breakfast. Don’t worry we’ve got a plan for the other half too!
Presenting to you some mouth-watering breakfast recipes by the best that will convince you beyond that hundred percent and will make you jump right out of your bed and onto the table every dawn.
So get your aprons on and let’s dine-in!
A not-so-classic Cereal
Lindsey’s Maca Cacao Puff Cereal gives you a quick break from the regular cereal bowl and granola and brings you a simple, easy to make everyday breakfast alternative. It’s crunchy and brings together a great pair of maca and cacao. One can have it with almond milk, sliced bananas, toasted pepitas, or seeds of choice, or dry out of the jar, or even to top some ice cream!
