You might think a muffin and a cup of coffee ought to do the trick, but it is advised to be more careful about what you choose to start your day with. Here are some suggestions for breakfast recipes. Check out below 5 breakfast Ideas that you can try.
Eggs are good
Some protein in your breakfast is always a good idea. So, have eggs with bread (wholegrain/multigrain) or roti and flavourful food. Eggs could be in any form: boiled, poach or omelette. Try to make it nutritional by adding green veggies such as broccoli, capsicum, spinach to your egg recipes.
Have a smoothie
A fruit or vegetable smoothie is apt for a busy morning. Just chop some seasonal fruit, place in a blender with honey or hazelnut syrup and blend until frothy. You can create your smoothie by mixing two or three fruits or create combinations of fruits and veggies. For example, Carrot and orange combination with is very healthy and tasty.
Wholegrain above processed
A store-bought packet of noodles may sound tempting for breakfast, but don’t give in to this temptation because maida is bad for your gut and brain. Opt for wholegrain parantha, porridge, or oats, as these foods will give you the requisite nutrition required to feel energetic and begin your work.
Despite the not so good press that milk gets sometimes, it’s wholesome food. A toast or cornflakes with some warm milk for a quick morning bite is always good. Milk keeps the stomach full for a long time and is especially good for bone development in children and teens. For those who are lactose intolerant and are not too fond of milk, a yoghurt is a good option. Sugar-free muesli with yoghurt and chopped fruits are very filling and delicious.
Idli sambhar and uttapam are healthy breakfast recipes. Foods like Idli are good for the gut and if you have them with coconut chutney, you are doing your skin and hair a service too, because coconut is rich in fatty acids and nourishes the skin internally.
