Doctors tell us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gets the metabolism moving, brain functioning, and body and mind alert and ready for the day. It is also essential for maintaining a good, healthy body weight. When considering breakfasts, understand the many ingredients that can be included to add excitement and variety in the mornings. For those who do not take the time to have breakfast, this may be just what you need.
New recipes can be found anywhere, and everywhere. From cook books, to websites and even family recipes, they are everywhere. Try including fruits and vegetables into your morning meal. This will add variety to a meal that may have become boring. Trying new things may open up a new area that the whole family can enjoy together.
Most people think of eggs and bacon for breakfast. Some may even like pancakes and sausage, but other than that, many do not vary from this routine. Perhaps this is why some lose interest in eating breakfast. Without venturing outside the box, and trying new things, we become bored and stop doing what is no longer interesting to us.
If eggs are becoming boring, perhaps try some yogurt with some granola sprinkled on top. This provides the yogurt with a nice crunchy texture, and draws the sweetness of the yogurt in. Add a piece of toast and we have a new breakfast idea. Oatmeal is a very healthy food product and one that is great for the heart. Try throwing some raisins and almonds in the pot while it is cooking, serve with a piece of whole wheat toast and again, here is a nice healthy breakfast.
You can experiment with ingredients that you like to make a recipe of your own. A great homemade cereal is a combination of dry oatmeal, coconut, raisins and sunflower seeds. A cup of this in a bowl with a little half and half on top makes for a great morning meal. It is very high in nutrients, fiber and flavor and adds variety to your morning meal. If bananas are appealing, throw a few slices over the top for a new taste.
Although there are many ways to make breakfast, if eggs are still your thing, try scrambling up a couple and putting fresh vegetables of your choice on top. Red and green bell pepper work well with a little cheese on top of that. Have a piece of toast and you have an egg dish that has a new kick.
There are great cook books that provide wonderful recipes that the whole family can enjoy together. Try new things and new ingredients when making breakfast. This can be a fun time to really experiment with the ingredients that are already attractive, but then try incorporating other ingredients that have not been tried yet.
