Breakfast! the most important meal of the day?

Breakfast! It’s supposedly the most important meal of the day. It sets you up for the day ahead, and skipping it can have detrimental effects on our health. We wanted to find out what breakfast means to our Cafestudy members.

There were lots of suggestions for favourite breakfasts.

French Toast with bacon, maple syrup and lots of fresh fruit with a pot of English Breakfast (tinky)
The ideal breakfast is sitting in a cafe, paper in front of me and the old faithful....juice, 2 eggs, bacon, tomato, mushrooms, sourdough toast maybe a hash brown & well made latte (rednal)
Some like it simple – Weet-Bix and toast/vegemite.

Nikkinoo says: Breakfast is a huge part of living a healthy lifestyle, too many people skip it and the effects yet subtle are very detrimental.... a healthy breakfast needs to be full of wholegrains, protein and the right carbohydrates.... weetbix, toast with eggwhite omelet, porridge.... be creative and enjoy life to its fullest :) Reply

says: Actually the best way to loosing weight in a healthy sustained way is to make breakfast your largest meal of the day. It has to be quite substantial and "healthy". (hint try making Bircher Muesli. Quick, easy and cheap to make. Can easily vary ingredients. DON'T add sugar).

Then dinner should be light and the smallest meal of the day. (hint try lentil soup. High in protein, also quick, cheap & easy to make and vary).

All meals need to be consistently healthy. Consistency is key. Reply

chickenman says: what one has for breakfast depends on ones' lifestyle. the more active a person is, the more nutrition needed to sustain the body. whatever one has, it is a benificial way to start a new day. Reply

Simple; into a blender place 2 weetbix, tablespoon honey, 1/4c frozen berries; 1 cup milk. turn on whizz. put into cup; get into car; drive and have breakfast.


Toast with hard boiled egg; mashed and honey. Toast = carbo; Egg = Protein and the honey is a boost of natural insulin LOL.....if not honey - marmite

weekend; simple; omelette with caramalised onions; or mushrooms; slice of toast with marmite; and a glass of juice (usually cranberry or blueberry),

Yes, when I skip breakfast, I over eat for the rest of the day. So I make the time for breakfast. Reply

Kajal17 says: I am someone who skips breakfast most of the time and I'm still trying to get rid of this awful habit because I've come to realise that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day regardless of anything that you do during the day. Nowadays, I resort to quick forms of breakfast most of the time like a simple bowl of cereal or a bread with a spread. Somedays, I like to prepare french toast, toasts, etc. Reply

says: I like eating healthily! or at least i think so... In my opinion, breakfast is the most important meal, which gives energy on a whole day! That's why, it should be balanced in this way: more carbohidrates, enough protein and less fats.
My suggestion in this case is simple: take 1) oats, 2) protein powder and 3) water/milk - mix it together, and you will be fine! for better taste you may also blend it...
My gf found this recepy is so strange, but I don't care... Reply
