10. Museli - combine wheat flakes oat flakes rye flakes barley flakes with some dry fruits like raisins currants seeds like pumpkin seed. Serve with seasonal fruits and milk. 11. Quick French toast - cut couple of bread slices into four triangles each. Dip them in beaten egg (season it as needed) and cook on hot tava. Drizzle some oil or butter while cooking. Cook both sides and that s a good breakfast on the go. 12. Millet gruel - Millet is usually considered poor man s food but truth is many people who work hard physically have ragi gruel often for breakfast. It keeps them full for long although they are involved in intense work. One way of preparing is similar to multi grain porridge mentioned previously. Another method is to mix it with some buttermilk and let it sit overnight.
8. Healthy pancakes - make your own pancake mix by adding either the above mentioned porridge powder or wholewheat powder along with some millet powder. Add mashed banana or pureed apple or blueberries if you want it sweeter add syrup like dates syrup to make a batter. I tend to skip the baking powder or soda bicarb as it inhibits nutrition absorption. You could add little all purpose flour to ease flipping the pancake. Pour the batter on hot tava and drizzle oil/butter/ghee. Cook both sides eat. 9. Bread omelet - beat an egg and add salt and required vegetables like tomato onion mushroom etc. and make an omelet. Grab couple of toasts and a glass of juice. Having protein earlier in the day is said to be better than later.
A hearty breakfast not only provides the body with enough energy to last you all morning but it also gives the body the nutrients to function optimally. When you skip breakfast its harder to get the recommended daily allowance of vitamins minerals and nutrients. When the body is in a state of energy deprivation most people head for the quick fix of sugary high calorie high fat snacks. Not only does this impede your body s ability to function it also hurts your ability to lose weight. By eating a healthy breakfast that contains complex carbohydrates lean protein low fat dairy and fiber you can consume a healthy balance of essential nutrients that will help the body function throughout your day. Overall people who eat breakfast tend to have a better diet than those who skip breakfast altogether.
