Every morning we wake up worrying – Now what to cook for breakfast? There’s undoubtedly a whole variety that we can try every day, but the question is – are they packed with wholesome nutrients required to kick-start your day? Breakfast is the most important meal, so it should be a balance of all the essential nutrients wrapped with absolute goodness of health. An ideal platter should have a mix of carbohydrate, proteins, essential oils, necessary vitamins and fibre. Some healthy breakfast options could be;
- Cornflakes added with milk, seasonal fresh fruits , almonds, raisins, walnuts and a dash of honey
- Poha (beaten rice) with lots of vegetables and groundnuts
- Upma, with veggies like cauliflower, French beans, green peas, capsicum
- Toasted multi-grain bread with boiled eggs and some low fat cheese
- Toasted brown bread sandwich with eggs / fresh cottage cheese, peanut butter spread, lettuce leaves, cucumber, tomatoes
- Stuffed paranthas made of wheat flour , served with curd (Leftover daal can be used to knead the dough to make it more nutritious).
- Grilled veggies and fresh fruit salad with low-fat yoghurt
You can round off your breakfast with Green tea / Fresh vegetable juice/ fruit juice and plenty of water, preferably after a gap of half an hour.
Happy breaking your fast!
