A healthy breakfast is a way to a heathy day. Breakfast is often touted to be the most important meal of the day yet the most ignored one. In the midst of morning chaos at home, we tend to compromise on a wholesome, healthy breakfast by often grabbing a cup of coffee or sometimes, nothing at all. The fact that a healthy morning meal is important for our body, we should never avoid it and, in fact, must keep it protein- and fibre-rich. Breakfast literally means to break the fast; since our body isn't consuming for almost 8-10 hours post last night's dinner until we wake up, it becomes important for us to refuel our body with healthy food in the morning.
Yes, we do know how tough it can be to prepare a lavish breakfast spread at home every day which is full of nutrients. Yet there are certain delicious breakfast options that are wholesome, easy and can be prepared in a jiffy!
