Over centuries, we have known the importance of eating breakfast. Regular breakfast consumption is linked to better health status throughout life. Clinical studies have also highlighted the role of regular breakfast intake for improved insulin sensitivity, better glucose tolerance and reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases. [1] Skipping breakfast increases the risk of developing cardio-metabolic disease later in life. [2] It is been suggested that breakfast should provide of 20% of one's daily energy intake. [3] Besides, it is essential to note that it is not the quantity, but the proper balance of nutrients in breakfast that is critical. A balanced breakfast includes food high in protein, moderate in complex carbohydrates (moderate to low glycemic index) and low in fat[4].

The following meal combo is an example of a healthy nutritious breakfast.
