Having A Good Breakfast

Emergency Breakfast before Work
One of the meals that needs the most careful planning is breakfast. Since it should be the heaviest meal of the day, the housewife should make sure that it contains all of the necessary nutrients. One mistake that is very commonly committed nowadays is the skipping of breakfast or the eating of too light a breakfast. Too many people eat nothing but one or two pieces of bread with one cup of rice coffee for breakfast because they are in a hurry. Then when they feel run-down at about ten o’clock, they wonder why.

There are two things that should be done so that an adequate breakfast can be had. (1) Wake up early and (2) plan simple, easy-to-prepare but balanced menus. Breakfast should include a protein food such as egg or milk, cereal, or bread, or both, and beverage. If a good source of vitamin C is included, the day’s allowance is assured. Variety can be added in many ways. Cereals can be hot or cold and so can the bread. Bread may vary from plain white to griddle cakes to pandesal or ensaymada. For beverage you could have milk, cocoa, rice coffee, or Postum, and your vitamin C source can be anything from orange juice to citrus sections.
