In a perfect world, the ringing of an alarm clock would be accompanied by a cloud of delicious breakfast aromas, which would drag us from the bed as if we were animated cartoon characters and gently deposit us in the kitchen to enjoy a hearty breakfast. This probably seems like a dream, since many of us forget breakfast, even if it’s a very important meal. Is it time for a change?
Choose not to skip!
Everyone is aware of the quote “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”, which advocates the importance of breakfast. Even Homer mentioned a meal, which was consumed immediately after sunrise. Modern habits and the fast pace of life, however, have many people considering the preparation of breakfast as an arduous chore! You may enjoy pressing “Skip” on YouTube Ads, but, for your own good, you should definitely avoid skipping breakfast!
Learning all about breakfast can whet your appetite for history. We mentioned Homer before, but what is the history behind breakfast? Field workers in ancient Egypt used to eat a meal, consisting of beer, bread and onions, early in the morning and before they started working in the fields. But maybe we are traveling too far back in history.
If “waffles” is the first word you think of with “breakfast”, then you may be interested in this tasty fact: the first waffles were introduced in the American colonies, back in 1620. But maybe waffles remind you of brunch. The first mention of this term, which combines breakfast and lunch, was in an English news article promoting brunch as a light Sunday meal which could bring people together and cheer them up. Brunch’s mood-elevating properties are still relevant today, considering how many brunch-related Instagram stories we see on our feed every weekend.
Breakfast + Lunch = Brunch!
Start your engine.
Let’s leave history where it belongs… in the past. Not eating breakfast is a bad habit, which leads to low levels of energy at the beginning of the day. As a result, after some hours of hunger, you’ll probably nibble impulsively on anything, regardless of its quality. This mindless eating is more likely to happen when you won’t be able to concentrate at the office or in class. The explanation for this fact is simple:our brain is like a car engine and breakfast is the essential fuel. In addition, skipping breakfast is not suggested when you are trying to slim down. Your metabolism will slow down and you’ll feel like your scale is stuck. At the end of the day, breakfast’s benefits are more than you thought.
Fast, easy and healthy!
Many people agree that breakfast might be important and nutritious, but their responsibilities and being on the move all day don’t allow them to enjoy it. That’s why we have some, really healthy and quick to prepare, breakfast options. A tortilla wrap spread with peanut butter and sliced bananas can be made so quickly that you might find time to prepare a second one. A quick and healthy breakfast could include a smoothie. You’ll just need milk, your favorite fruits, and a superfood, like chia seeds. The only way, the preparation of a smoothie will be time-consuming, is if the cap has been left off the moment when you switch the blender on…
The most delicious types of breakfast!
The truth is that there are times when you really can’t make breakfast at home and you’d prefer to enjoy some street food. Street food is not necessarily an unhealthy option, even though people have that impression. So, you may wonder, “What am I going to eat for breakfast?” There are many different breakfast options, and they are all high quality.
The Parisian: Butter croissant, with its fresh-baked aroma, filled with fresh savory fillings. Even without a view of the Eiffel tower, you will wholeheartedly say “bonjour!”.
The traditional: There are many options and the same goes for the variety of tastes. Original koulouri from Thessaloniki, salty cheese pie from Epirus or a hearty, filling, spinach pie, which will make you feel as strong as Popeye.
The “I live for sandwiches”: There is no such thing as a universal sandwich, since every sandwich can be uniquely perfect for someone. Chicken with cheddar, arugula with mozzarella, vegetables or a more gourmet option with olive pate. We bet that you will discover the unique sandwich combination for you.
The sweetaholic: The day can start in a sweet way with cookies and “bougatsa” with cream or even more sweetly with a honey pie.
