In general, it’s a great idea to start your day with a healthy, nutritious meal. Your body burns off a lot of energy while you sleep, and when you first wake up is when it needs the most nourishment.

Your breakfast gives you a great opportunity to eat rich foods packed full of vitamins and minerals, which give your body the energy needed to help it grow and repair.

Many of our breakfast recipes also include healthy ingredients like essential greens and fruits, both of which are linked to cancer prevention.

There are a lot of great options, but it can be hard to choose!

If you’re wondering what kind of food is right for your breakfast, it can be useful to consider your current diet, and what ingredients you need to focus on. For example, you might need more protein in your diet, in which case a tasty maple walnut granola might be a great choice!

It’s also important to make sure you’ve got the kit you need to make the meal you want, whether that be the right kind of frying pan or a blender for making a lovely smoothie. Be sure to have all the ingredients too, of course.
