Breakfast Like A King!

It is definitely true what they say – breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Your body has been hard at work all night renewing worn out cells and keeping all of your organs ticking over without any food coming in to fuel it. So breakfast is your chance to get the day off to a really good start, giving your body all the nutrients it needs and making you feel energised, revitalised and ready to face anything life throws at you.

Some people wake up absolutely ravenous, and love the thought of tucking into a hot, filling cooked breakfast. Other people find the thought of eating anything other than cereal makes their stomach churn. But as with anything in life, there are always more options than you think, and there are always good choices you can substitute for the not so good.

Here are a few breakfast ideas that your body and mind will love (and so will you!):

For those who like a cooked breakfast:

Scrambled eggs on wholegrain toast with a glass of orange juice

Eggs Florentine

Bacon, lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

Welsh Rarebit (fancy cheese on toast!)

For those who prefer a more traditional breakfast:

Breakfast Smoothie – ¾ glass of skimmed or semi skimmed milk, a few tablespoons of natural bio yoghurt, a chopped banana and a couple of handfuls of mixed berries all whizzed up in a blender

Homemade Muesli with milk or bio yoghurt, topped with fresh or tinned fruit

Porridge made with half water, half milk and flavoured with cinnamon, ginger or vanilla essence and sprinkled with a couple of tablespoons of mixed nuts and seeds

Breakfast Muffin (try the delicious Banana and Muesli Muffin recipe)

Try a few different ideas and see what you prefer! You might even surprise yourself!
