Breakfast has been considered the most important meal of the day. At breakfast time, it has been a while since people have put some calories in the body and they are preparing to start the most active part of your day.
Working at night, sleeping in the day, then supper is the most important meal of the day. You need something in your stomach to nourish your daily activities.
At some point in the day, consumption of carbonated drinks, energy drinks, and coffee is a large part of any students’ daily meal. A lifestyle factor, such as daily breakfast choices have a significant impact on the health of every student on campus.
It is very easy to get into a breakfast rut. I confess that every morning for about two years, I had a bowl of oatmeal, two slices of buttered toast and a glass of juice for breakfast. Nothing really wrong with that, but we all know that a variety is the spice of life. As I have grown older, I have come to look forward to breakfast as my favorite meal. Since I try to add a variety to the menu just so it will keep things interesting
I pity students who start their day with a bottle of Pepsi or a bowl of crunchy flakes with skim milk as they are running out the door to make it to class on time. But is that any way to begin a day? Absolutely not and it is no way to start your day. Even breakfast burrito’s with an optional hot sauce is a temporary delicacy, however, I’d rather see any student spend their money on a Snickers Bar.
Weekends are the best time for really great breakfasts. Students have the time to come fully awake, have a cup of coffee or two and work up a good breakfast appetite. Sundays work for me, although Saturday might work for other students.
Eggs are good. Despite all the bad press eggs have gotten in the past few years, it is now okay to have a few eggs in your weekly diet. Eggs can be fried, poached, boiled or scrambled for variety. Even tossing in a few vegetables, or some ham will also add flavor to your dish as well.
Now that you are all primed for a big breakfast. Go for it.
In the coming semesters, when it comes to breakfast, every student should stop over at the Alumni Center where a delicious free breakfast is served with green pancakes, ice cream, muffins, bagels, fresh fruit, yogurt and orange juice.
Students don’t miss out! May your ingestion of nourishment be most pleasant.
