Healthy Breakfast Ideas from Ayurved

Getting up around 6 A.M….exercising….bathing …..and rushing to the office at 9 A.M. This is the routine of most of us. How a busy morning schedule we have? But, we often forget to do an important thing in the hurry (or lack of time). Think….think….what is it? Not getting anything? Okay, I will tell you. It’s breakfast! Some of you omit breakfast because you perceive that it will increase your weight. But, it’s completely incorrect notion. A healthy and nutritious breakfast acts as a fuel for our body.

All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.– John Gunther
