What do you like to have to eat in the morning for breakfast? Do you think it is an essential meal? I personally like to have a bowl of cereals, some fruit and a glass of natural juice. I'd like to have those more traditional heavier english breakfasts but I don't find the time or patience to make that up in the morning.

Lately I have been eating granola and yogurt for breakfast because I am trying to be healthier. My favorite breakfast though...bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant. So good and so bad at the same time. My mouth is now watering. I want one! lol

Haha, sorry for having triggered that reaction on you. Do you really find the time for cooking some eggs or bacon in the morning though? I can't believe you cannot be one of the majority of persons who are lazy in the morning :) Grabbing a yogurt sounds so much more simpler!

I usually don't have proper breakfast most of the time. I only have breakfast when I take the trouble to prepare breakfast for my kids which is not "out-of-the-box", then i sit and join them with it. That is: Pancakes, egss and toast, upma (south indian breakfast), oats and the like.

Sounds lovely...but why are you taking some south indian food if you're located in New Zealand? Do you have some family connections with India or so?

Oh about the south indian food, my partner is originally from india. though we are now live in new zealand, we still prepare indian food. The good thing is, because of the inter-partnership and the travels that we've done, the kids are ok with almost any kind of food. Whether it be indian, filipino, western, chinese, malaysian, italian, etc... they are not too picky about food.

That's great to read, maybe one of your kids will turn out to be a cooker later in life due to all of this extensive food experience ;)

whatever your breakfast dont skip breakfast because it helps to speed up your metabolism.Do you know what is metabolism and how important it is? Different people has different rate of metabolism. People with faster metabolism gets to burn off fat and calories faster where the people with slower metabolism, sad to say have to work extra harder just to keep fit. Below is an article I found on how to speed up your metabolism, written by WLR Dietitian, Juliette Kellow BSc SRD. 1. Get active - it’s a sure-fire way to increase the amount of muscle you have, which in turn will speed up your metabolism. Do a mixture of aerobic and resistance training for best results. And don’t forget to be more active in your daily life too. 2. Eat little and often - there’s evidence that eating small, regular meals throughout the day, rather than one or two large meals, may help to keep your metabolism ticking over. Surprisingly, around 10 percent of the calories we use each day go on digesting and absorbing food - so the more times you eat, the greater this effect is likely to be. 3. Eat plenty of protein-rich foods - research shows that around 25 percent of calories in a protein-rich meal may be burnt off. But make sure you choose low-fat protein foods such as lean meat, skinless chicken and low-fat dairy products. 4. Spice up meals - it’s not an old wives tale after all! Spices like chilli are thought to raise metabolism by up to 50 percent for up to three hours after eating, due to increasing your heart rate. But before putting the local Indian takeaway on speed dial, work out which curries have the lowest calorie and fat content. 5. Swap you daily cuppa for green tea - there’s evidence that it contains antioxidants that speed up metabolism. 6. Try a CLA supplement - more extensive studies need to be carried out before any definite conclusions can be drawn, but research has shown that conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) might increase muscle and therefore boost metabolism. 7. Chill out - research shows that being very cold can increase metabolism by up to 20 percent. 8. Have a sauna - being very hot is also thought to boost metabolism by about 20 percent (but check you don’t have any underlying medical problems that mean you shouldn’t go in saunas or steam rooms). Hope this article will help you build and speed up your metabolism

There's some good tips in there but it's kind of hard to follow each of them and in a coordinate people, at least to some people.

Yes I think it's an essential meal, I like to have a bowl of cereal or toast, it's quick and good. If I find it ready I wouldn't mind having the English traditional breakfast ;)

During my work week I usually have a bowl of Raisin Bran as well as a bowl of Oatmeal. I have a appetite in the morning and like to get the day off to a good start and they give me energy. Breakfast I feel is the most important meal of the day as it helps you get the day off to a good start and gives you that energy boost after waking up in the morning. I also like drinking milk or orange juice.

I agree, breakfast is clearly the most important meal of the day...I can't really understand how some people are able to go through a whole morning with an empty stomach, I wouldn't be able to. Thanks for your reply.

That's quite a heavy breakfast in there...imagine all of the time that would be wasted preparing it! But well, I guess it'd be worthwhile.

if you know dried salted fish or "tuyo" or "daing" in the philippines, i like to eat these with rice and a combination of hot coffee or hot choco. if i still have time, i can cook this. but if i don't have time already, i usually buy famous bread in the philippines, "pandesal" also with a combination of hot coffee or hot choco.

i usually dont eat breakfast. its not necessarily because i dont have time in the morning. but it just takes me a few hours to start feeling hungry, and by then its lunch time. but when i do eat breakfast, my favorite is a croissant or english muffin with a fried egg, ham, cheese and lemon pepper on it! yum!

Quite a complete meal in the morning there, now I understand why you don't always find the time to have a breakfast. I wouldn't be able to go through a whole morning wit a stomach empty though, so anything goes really, if I didn't have the time to prepare something.
