Morning. Bright sunshine. The pleasant wee hours. That lucidity of examining the newspaper in the bright embers of the sunrise and proceeding for a hot cuppa tea! And what follows next? The breakfast, of course. For most of us, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
It connotes an emotive touch instead of being singularly about food and food alone. The breakfast is perhaps the most pleasant and fascinating interchange of ideas, friendly, banter and whatnot over food. Before we break for the day and head for our respective duties- whether job, entrepreneurship or home-making, breakfast allows time to communicate and play catch up. So it’s all the more rational to have something so special and exciting that it makes the day.
And that our breakfast meals be not the same, routine, boring, dull run of the mill meals that we’ve been having since the Jurassic age- such as the sunny side up, cheese and bacon, tuna sandwich or that good old bowl of cereal. Accompanied with a glass of fresh juice. You’ve already gorged on it enough to make the word stale even staler. Routine breakfast options could be likened to watching dull soap operas- same storyline, nothing fancy.
Who doesn’t like a makeover? Even your neighbourhood nanny who’s utility is no more than babysitting needs some. So why not your taste buds? We present you some interesting breakfast ideas that will lighten up your day whilst keeping you stomach-full.
