Breakfast is the most important part of the day. It sets us up for the morning and depending on what we eat, it can energise us and help keep us going without leaving us craving other foods or feeling hungry.
I have always struggled to think of what to eat at breakfast time only because, having recently given up bread, I have struggled to think creatively ……..however no longer.
