Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so it is said. "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper," goes the saying. Skipping the first meal of the day is advised against by all nutritionists and dieticians. But how to practically apply this principle when we are constantly in a rush to reach our school, college or place of work? People prefer to generally skip the first meal of the day, and go on straight to lunch. Moreover, with increasing commute times and a hectic lifestyle, no one has the time to have a proper sit down breakfast with a lavish spread comprising three courses.
Nevertheless, the importance of eating at least something to start your day with cannot be understated. How then to get the best of both worlds? We collated some breakfast ideas that are simple to whip up, delicious to taste, and the best part - you can eat them on-the-go. They are easy to carry and not messy at all, so these ideas can easily be part of your daily commute. So pick up these quick ideas and make them a part of your weekly food menu for days when you're running late. You'll see the difference in your health in no time!
