6 Breakfast Options to Make Winter Mornings Special

Breakfast provides the brain and body with much-needed fuel after an overnight fast - that's where its name was invented, breaking the fast. Starting your day without having breakfast is just like trying to start a car with no petrol. The lives we live today, constantly in a hurry, we often forget to give importance to our breakfast meal. Instead, we tend to grab the first thing that comes to our hands to quickly relieve our hunger. However, it’s crucial to understand that a well-prepared breakfast can make or break someone’s day. Majority of people don't usually realize the importance of this meal, but if you make it an everyday habit, you will eventually feel the difference.

Also, it is not just about filling our body but consuming the food mindfully to provide our body with all the required nutrients. So, if you skipped your breakfast, you shouldn't compensate for it by gorging on buttery parathas or oily noodles. Breakfast is that one meal that charges you up and keeps you going for the rest of the day. After the long night, your body stays in a hibernation mode, and your morning meal acts as a launch button. Breakfast provides energy to your body and keeps you energized for the day ahead.

A favourite breakfast option in North India, Poha is made from either flat rice (Chiwra) or puffed rice (murmure). Filling and lip smacking delicious, it is an ideal breakfast for weight watchers because it uses minimum oil and packs various nutrients that are healthy.
