Never work before breakfast. If you have to work before breakfast, get your breakfast first. – Josh Billings
Most of us in today’s world are managing hectic schedules. While we juggle between our various responsibilities one important activity that we must “Invest” our time in should be Breakfast. The time that we spend in making and eating a healthy breakfast to a great extent shapes up the rest of our day. Eating a healthy protein rich breakfast is important as it boosts Metabolism, Energises you for the rest of the day, Improves focus and concentration and helps in maintaining or losing weight
Like all of you my mornings are also rushed – daughter has to be sent to school, I have to go to work , Morning meetings to attend etc. In such a hectic schedule a ready to eat breakfast is a most convenient option, however, most of these breakfast options are high in sugar and provide very less nutrition. Over the years I have learnt an important lesson – Plan , Plan & Plan. I plan my breakfast and meals for the week. This helps me making right choices and also prepare well in advance. Due to the early morning rush I keep breakfasts simple & quick to make , without compromising on health and taste.
Barley porridge is a whole grain healthy breakfast that can be prepared in 10 minutes , if the barley is cooked before hand. I cook the barley the previous night and keep it in fridge. In fact if you like cold porridge you can add the milk too and keep it in the fridge. Next morning just add fresh fruits and nuts.
