â€œBreakfast is the most important meal of the day.â€ This is something that has been drilled into us by our parents ever since we were young. Breakfast really is very important because it serves as the fuel that will power your body through all of your activities for the day. A hearty breakfast makes a difference and even scientific studies on nutrition show that a heavy breakfast has more of a beneficial effect on your body than eating a larger lunch to compensate for a light breakfast or not taking breakfast at all.
Personally, I love breakfast. Itâ€™s my favorite meal of the day, to be honest. I always see breakfast as a treat and a good breakfast is enough toÂ cheer me up all day. A hearty breakfast doesnâ€™t have to be unhealthy. It just has to be well thought out. A bowl of muesli with some soy milk is already a great start to the day. Muesli provides fiber, carbohydrates and a lot of vitamins and minerals. You can even make it extra special by including sliced fresh fruits, berries or dried fruits. A piece of toast with a poached egg and tea is also a great day-starter. Itâ€™s light enough not to make you feel bloated but substantial enough to give you enough energy until lunch.
The more lavish breakfasts are the ones that are really to die for though. Anyone who has had Eggs Benedict for breakfast will know how absolutely scrumptious a great breakfast spread is. Itâ€™s no wonder breakfast buffets are so popular.
The most enjoyable breakfast buffets are the ones that actually offer different breakfast staples from different regions/countries. A continental breakfast may be delicious, but you have to admit it can get boring and predictable. A hash brown is a hash brown, and a sausage is a sausage. The best breakfast buffets are the ones that actually give you a glimpse into what people in other countries eat before they go out for work or school. For example, Korean breakfast staples are quite spicy. A steaming bowl of noodles called â€œJiampongâ€ can get so fiery it can literally clear your sinuses. They even sometimes pair their Jiampong with kimchi, the traditional pickled vegetables that is also quite spicy. Indians have their roti and chai tea. The roti is often paired with a vegetable curry that is very pungent with masala spices. Eating the breakfast staples of other countries make you feel that youâ€™ve traveled to their countries and experienced their culture in the span of cleaning up your dish. And thatâ€™s an experience worth keeping.
