Our quick and easy breakfast recipe combines all three foods in delicious medley of nutrition
No matter if you are on a diet or not, breakfast is one thing that is important to stay healthy. A wholesome breakfast is crucial for a strong start to the day. As the first meal of the day, breakfast tends to set the tone for the rest of the day. This is why experts suggest having a high-power breakfast with a good balance of all essential macro-nutrients, that may keep you energised for the rest of the day. On the other hand, a morning meal with too many greasy or oily foods may end up making you feel lazy, sluggish and can even give you a feeling of indigestion. While there is no single set breakfast that everyone should follow, nor are there any set rules for a healthy breakfast that works for everyone, but all experts suggest a healthy mix of essential macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients in breakfast meals.
