I just love breakfast. Years ago when I was a busy mum and a successful salon owner I wouldn't eat until lunch time. My mum used to tell me it was the most important meal of the day, which I never understood until years later. Isn't it amazing how many ‘old wives tales’ turn out to be true?
True to mum's advice it really is important to eat in the morning as it kick starts your metabolism and breaks the over night fast. More importantly, it provides fuel for the morning and can prevent overindulging and bingeing later in the day. Having breakfast also helps to balance glucose levels, providing important energy and helps to prevent dizzy spells and lethargy.
I am still not perfect at it, but during the week I will try to start my day with at least some lemon water and a fruit smoothie, fresh organic fruit or sometimes avocado on toast. On holidays or the weekends when I have more time I like to treat my family to a beautifully cooked breakfast like this one I have shared here with you - I hope you love it!
