An American writer, Robert A. Heinlein, once wrote: “One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast.” Although most of us would say that his words are only a pure exaggeration, I am more than sure that if our body could speak, it would highly disagree with us. The importance of a healthy breakfast is often challenged by the demanding requirements of our 21st century lifestyle, which either forces us to eat some sugared doughnut with big latte on our way to work or to skip breakfast completely.
The food we eat for a breakfast serves to wake up our metabolism and also works as a signal for our body, telling it that it will be nurtured regularly throughout the day. Eating your breakfast guarantees you to be physically and mentally prepared to face all the morning challenges that wait for you on your work or school desk.
However, never forget that to start your day with healthy energy and healthy thoughts, you first have to choose healthy breakfast. Here are my 7 healthy breakfasts I use to prepare for myself
1) “Sketchbook” breakfast that will paint your day
While the eggs and broccoli stems are cooking, I cut the smoked salmon andcheese into small pieces. I add rocket salad and multi seed cracker to balance the taste of my not only colorfully looking but also colorfully tasting breakfast.When everything is cooked, add the broccoli stems and eggs cut into halves.
2) Sweeten your day
Are you rushing to school or work without any spare time? Have a look in your fridge and grab all the fruits you see. I guarantee you that you will cut them beautifully within couple of minutes and enjoy their refreshing taste. My favorite combinations are berries with banana, green and red grapes and pears with Pink Lady apples. Our body can absorb all the fructose and vitamins from fruit the best in the morning time till 1PM, so don’t lose this brilliant opportunity.
3) Hercules Breakfast
This is one of my favorite breakfast that I eat when I feel very hungry in the morning and I know I will need lot of energy for the following day tasks. I simply wash some green salad (Rocket always wins for me), add tomatoes, onion, peppers or any kind of vegetable. Then I add pieces of roasted salmon with honey and some cheese. Finally I season it with drops of olive oil, salt pepper and mix of beans and peas (this one contained baby peas, Azuki and chick peas).
4) Liquid Morning Pleasure
It often happens to me that I wake up and I don’t feel any hunger, but I know I don’t want to start my day with an empty stomach. In this case, I prepare myself a proper healthy liquid breakfast. In the first case, I mixed blueberries with little bit of milk and banana and in the second I replaced blueberries with strawberries.I love this breakfast because it’s very refreshing, healthy, and you can have so much fun with it by combining various kinds of fruits together. Have Fun
5) Generous Fridge
This is what I call: What the Fridge Gave Me. In this case I had a flat bread withlight Philadelphia, ham, cheese, baby salad, corns, olives, peppers and baby tomatoes. Requirements met: Easy, Quick, Tasty and Healthy.
6) Healing Breakfast
My good old porridge… This is my absolutely top favorite combination with berries and banana. Not only healthy but healing as well!! Fiber and other whole grains that can be found in oatmeal help to clean out your colon.
7) Breakfast for Two ❤
This is what I call jumbo breakfast….you know those kinds you need to eat before something big like flying to the moon or climbing Mount Everest. On this plate you can find corns, broccoli, tomatoes, feta cheese, olives, garlic, salmon, rocket salad, peas…and you can replace or add any ingredients you wish. Get ready for a difficult day by this energetic bomb or grab another fork and share it with your partner ❤
Lastly, short poll and some wisdom from my favorite Winnie The Pooh….. on breakfast. Enjoy cooking ❤
I would be very thankful if you answered this simple question just for my own interest.
