India, known for its diverse culture, also offers authentic breakfast, originating from different parts of the country. A well-known fact, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, keep us active, and provides us with energy to get on our feet and pull up our socks. We love our Indian breakfasts like we love our big fat weddings.

Why is breakfast the most important meal of the day?

As the term suggests, you are breaking a fast with the first meal, studies show that eating breakfast within two hours of waking up can help reduce the risk of heart diseases. Don’t just satisfy your hunger pangs with junk food or stale pizza, satiate your taste buds with nutrients and proteins, avoid unhealthy treats. In fact, the first meal of the day provides energy to your body, balances your blood sugar levels, and stimulates the brain. It’s a good habit to eat breakfast every morning, as it also helps you maintain a healthy metabolism.

One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast.   –  Robert A. Heinlein
