The most sensible people follow the unwritten golden rule to breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper. But me I am the exact opposite. 

And no it’s not because I don’t know, it’s because my body is now accustomed to the unfit routine. With my mornings so chaotic, breakfast is the last thing on my mind. In between chores, preparing lunch and getting the household ready for the day I barely have time to breathe, forget about sitting by the table sipping tea and eating breakfast. Sometimes at best I grab a paratha or a sandwich and on the go take bites to sustain my hunger pangs. Oh yes, my body does call out for its share of nutrition and well being. 

However now this needs to change. 

Days on which I sit and indulge in some quality time with my breakfast I feel refreshed and energetic. I cannot overlook the importance of amazing nutrients like calcium, iron, vitamin B and fibre I get from the delicious spread. I can clearly see the difference in myself.   

And I’m going to initiate that change today as I’m heading to the Gupta family for breakfast. What else, they have over a hundred mouthwatering recipes, to pick from for your perfect breakfast on any occasion. You can see them here...

I’m headed to check out what I’d love to try to whip it up too. 

Those are some great recipes and I would love to try them. However I’m going to leave the regular Kellogg’s and fruit with milk for later when I’m too bored in the kitchen as they are simple to make. And I’m going to try some out of the way recipes to indulge in my oh-so-interested-in-cooking phase. 
I’m so enamored with these recipes and have set the breakfast menu for the next few days: 

Cornflake Coconut Ladoos; ladoos filled with goodness for you to gobble.
2 Cups Kellogg's Corn Flakes 
¼ Cup Milk
Chopped Nuts as desired   
¼ Cup Ghee + Grated Coconut 
Steps to Make
Add all the ingredients and mix properly.
Shape in size to serve.

Cornflake Popcorn Clusters; bursts of joy, power-packed with health.
1 Cup Kellogg's Corn Flakes 
½ Cup Popcorn & Chopped Nuts
¼ Cup Brown Sugar, Butter & Honey 
Oil for greasing

Steps to Make
Put the butter, brown sugar and honey in a non-stick pan and cook over medium flame for 4-5 minutes. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix gently. 
Spread on a greased baking tray and allow cooling. 
Break into pieces and serve.

Apple Cinnamon Cornflakes: Cinnamon breakfast filled with the goodness of apples.
1 Cup Kellogg's Corn Flakes 
½ cup Chopped Apples 
¼ TSP Cinnamon Powder 
1 Cup Cold Milk

Steps to Make
Add Cornflakes to a bowl.
Add the Milk 
Top it with Apples & Cinnamon 
Serve immediately.

Isn’t that fun, easy and so very tasty? Oh yes. Cannot wait to try these. 

And for those who still are lazing around, indulging in breakfast has long term benefits and can help reduce obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. Apart from the health benefits, breakfast is a perfect opportunity to start the day together as a family and connect with each other before jumping into your day-to-day activities. 

Do I agree? Yes I do. 

What about you?
