Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We should always have a hearty breakfast in the morning which is full of nutrients and energy. Skipping breakfast is not good idea as it leads to hyper insulin response when calories are consumed later. For someone like me, who spends most of their time outside the house with improper timings for lunch, a nutritious breakfast will keep our tummy full for long hours and give us the energy to start our day.
As I wake up in the morning, I do not get much time to cook. Hence, I always look out for easy breakfast options that can be prepared easily and is good for health. Kellog’s cornflakes is one breakfast item I swear by, most of the days. Experts say that cereals are ideal for breakfast as they are low in fat and high in fibre, minerals, vitamins and carbohydrates which is very much necessary for our body to work efficiently. Cereals are consumed with milk which is again, a great source of iron and helps to build our bones. But, eating a bowl of cornflakes with milk regularly for breakfast is really boring. So, I try to add some variety to my breakfast and make it tastier. The Kellog’s Facebook page regularly updates me with many quick and healthy menus for breakfast.
My favourite recipe among them is Kellog’s “Nut-things”. The recipe is very easy and can be prepared in 10 minutes. All we need to do is to take a bowl of cornflakes and add milk to it. Sprinkle few raisins and chopped roasted almonds and hazelnuts and our breakfast is ready. This recipe is very tasty and nutritious too. This is not all, I love to eat cornflakes for snacks too. Here is another tasty recipe from their page which I have moderated a bit and turned it into a “chaat” instead of a salad. Add chopped onion, carrot, cucumber to cornflakes, sprinkle salt and black pepper and drizzle some lemon to it. The result is tangy and tasty “cornflakes-chaat” which is not only good to eat but is full of nutrition and low in fat.
My neighbour, Guptaji’s wife, Mrs. Gupta have tried out almost all the tasty recipes mentioned in the Kellog’s Facebook page. Guptaji has invited me for breakfast at his home, this Sunday. Mrs. Gupta told me that she will prepare some great breakfast dishes with Kellog’s cornflakes. I can’t wait to try them out. I’ll be happy if Mrs.Gupta includes the “walnut-cornflakes choco balls” and “chappati cornflakes chiwda” in the breakfast menu. She is aware of the fact that I am crazy about chocolate and I think she will surprise me with the dish.
I am looking forward to a lovely Sunday breakfast at Guptaji’s house, if you want, you can join me too!
