Breakfast is most important meal of the day. The word literally refers to breaking the fasting period of the prior night.Breakfast vary widely from place to place, but mostly include a carbohydrate-rich food such as grains or cereals, fruit, vegetables, a protein-rich food such as eggs, meat or fish, and a beverage such as tea, coffee, milk, or fruit juice. Coffee, milk, tea, juice, breakfast cereals, pancakes, waffles, sausages, French toast, bacon, sweetened breads, fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, baked beans, muffins, crumpets and toast with butter, margarine, jam or marmalade are common examples of Western breakfast foods, though a large range of preparations and ingredients are associated with breakfast.Even in India the breakfast varies from state to state. Many people skip breakfast which affects their health. Having a healthy breakfast lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and also metabolic disorders.The Sugar levels are usually low in the morning hence breakfast is a mandatory for everyone.
On weekdays our breakfast is mostly bread , cereals ,dosa or idli.Weekends we have an elaborate breakfast.My kids want to have something different every week.
