Breakfast is the most favorite meal of my day. I was so delighted when Rafeeda of Thebigsweettooth announced the theme for this month's Muslim Food Blogger's Challenge as Breakfast. Even though the theme was so simple, for me it was very difficult to select one recipe for breakfast. I like to have the most lavish and high-calorie food for breakfast. It is mostly eggs and toast with some vegetables I like to have for breakfast with a nice warm cup of cappuccino. My loved ones who know me well also know that I am a 'Tea lover' and can have tea at any time of the day. But for breakfast, it is coffee I prefer more than tea.

It is needless to speak about the benefits of the breakfast as there is so much of awareness going on regarding the first meal of the day. I really don't mind skipping dinner for any reason, but breakfast is a must for me.

My personal thoughts about Breakfast:

1. It helps maintain weight 

By having a good breakfast, you can keep your weight in control and you tend to consume fewer calories throughout the day keeping yourself fuller and avoid snacking on unhealthy food.

2. Sets you up for the day

I really look forward to the first meal of the day after waking up and that sets me up and energizes me for a productive day.

3. It helps kick-start your metabolism 

After 12 hours of starvation, it helps produce enzymes needed to metabolize fat and in turn, helps in weight loss.

4. Other benefits:

It helps to keep the blood sugar level in check, lower the risk of heart diseases, improves memory and the list goes on.
