By now, we all know how important it is to have a wholesome meal for breakfast. It not only helps kick-start the day, but also refuels us with energy and nutrients to keep us going. This is why experts always stress on not skipping the first meal of the day for overall good health. In a quintessential Indian household, breakfast reminds us of poha, upma, idli, paratha et al. And, of course, a hot cup of tea or coffee by the side! But there are days when we don't feel like having something such heavy or fulfilling. Instead, we look for something light yet fulfilling. What do you do then? We resort to some snacks and a cup of tea or coffee.
Here we listed some of our favourite snack options that we eat instead of a healthy breakfast. They are light, delicious and fulfilling to the core. Let's take a look.
