Enhanced with a little relaxation, the key to getting off on the right foot every morning is quality ingredients, balance and a variety of foods. Here’s everything you need to know, including four trends well worth following 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A few simple rules ensure our body has all the nutrients it needs: quality ingredients, balance and variety of foods – combined with a little relaxation – are key to getting off on the right foot every morning. Here’s everything you need to know, including four tips well worth following. 


1. Breakslow: Enjoy a Slow Breakfast


To breakslow is to take your time over breakfast. Starting your day in no rush, enjoying a hearty meal during some downtime has been shown to improve happiness levels. To up the mood, add a little background music to the mix.

2. Home-made Products and Local Ingredients Guarantee Quality


Whether you like your breakfast sweet or savoury, quality is king. Seek out local ingredients, seasonal fruits and fresh eggs if possible. To start the day in the best possible way, make your breakfast foods – pies, tarts, home-made jams – yourself.

3. Balance is Essential  


A balanced meal is essential to get through the day. Breakfast should contain all of the main nutrient groups – protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and fibre – in the right proportions.

4. Tradition and Variety


Breakfast’s pedigree runs back through our grandparents all the way to Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. One thing the meal has maintained since antiquity is varied ingredients: we need to eat different types of food to achieve the right balance of nutrients: from bread (preferably wholemeal) to eggs or tuna if you’re the savoury type, or unsweetened chocolate, dried fruit and yogurt if sweet’s your thing.
