    Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper. – Adelle Davis

    While so many studies into nutrition seem to contradict each other – this is one issue that seems certain. Breakfast is good!
    Breakfast is a meal that sets you up for the day. It replenishes your body’s energy supply after the nights fast and provides the energy required to stay physically and mentally alert. Without breakfast, your body is basically running on empty. It is a critical meal for adults and children alike.

    Children who eat breakfast perform better on standardized achievement tests and have fewer behavior problems in school.
    A Harvard University/Massachusetts General Hospital study of children in Philadelphia and Baltimore schools discovered that students who usually ate school breakfast had improved math grades, reduced hyperactivity, decreased absence and tardy rates, and improved psycho-social behaviors compared with children who rarely ate school breakfast. (Pediatrics, January 1998; Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, February, 1998)

    Now when did I last have breakfast? ! Eating breakfast can do wonders for your memory loss. A study done by the University of Toronto on healthy men and women in the age group 60 to 79 showed that taking in calories from either protein, carbohydrates or fat boosted their performance in memory tests. While it appears that any breakfast is better than no breakfast at all, researchers have found that carbohydrates generally fuel the best long-term benefits to memory, probably due to the rise in blood sugar that they cause. Rise in blood sugar then causes an increase in the supply of glucose to the brain. (more…)

    Healthy Quick Breakfasts

    Posted by admin | Recipes | Saturday 12 November 2005 4:21 am

    It’s firmly believed now that people who eat breakfast think better and faster, remember more and are mentally sharper than breakfast skippers.

  • Think outside the breadbox…
  • Cheese-lovers, top an English Muffin with a slice of your favourite cheese, add a slice of ham or bacon and toast open-faced under the broiler until the cheese starts to melt. Gooey and good!
  • Gourmet on the go. Package one or two Fresh Waffles in plastic sandwich bags and your favourite fruit topping in a reusable sealed container. Toast the waffle once you get to work, top it off with your assortment of fruit and enjoy decadence at your desk. Add a spoonful of fruit yogurt for pure perfection
  • Poached or scrambled eggs take just 15 seconds in the microwave and make the perfect partner to an English Muffin.
  • Brie? Mais oui! Add sliced pears and Brie cheese to a toasted Fresh Waffle for an alternative to syrup.
  • Microwave sliced apples with brown sugar and a dab of butter until warm. Serve over a hot fresh waffle.
  • Pizza for breakfast! Who says you should only eat it at lunch? Top an Bread Roll with tomato sauce and all of your favourite toppings or left-overs even for a quick, easy and nutritious mini-meal
  • Try this…
