Easting breakfast not only stimulates calorie burning but also will wake you up because you now have energy to use. Another thing the kind of breakfast food you eat will also determine how your body responds. Now a days breakfast foods consist of simple carbohydrates i.e. Doughnuts cereal bars white bread sugary cereals bagels. These types of foods are loaded with sugar and usually have high number of calories which spikes your blood glucose levels. Although it will give you energy it will be short lived and when your blood sugar crashes so will you and you will crave more sugary substitutes before you even hit lunchtime. By eating a hearty breakfast with complex carbohydrates which digest slowly such as oatmeal or whole grain bread or bagels which are high in fiber and low in sugar you will provide your body with a steady source of energy and keep your cravings down.
Top a healthy muffin with berries and eat along with a glass of juice. Plenty of healthy muffin recipes are available try making enough over the weekend itself.

Breakfast sandwich - you could make these with leftovers too. You could use chapattis or pita breads or wholemeal breads and stuff them with left over sabjis or any vegetable of choice. Over the weekends I tend to quickly sauté grated courgette spice it with cumin chilly and coriander powder and make a grilled wholemeal sandwich. This helps me get one of my five a day vegetables as well. You can try the same with paneer or grated cauliflower cabbage etc.
