7 breakfast ideas from the best chefs for the week ahead

Eat well in the morning to start the day well. The importance of a nutritious breakfast cannot be stressed enough. Bangalore-based pastry chef Avin Thaliath, co-founder and director of the Lavonne Academy of Baking Science and Pastry Arts, shared some insights with Business Today.

Monday | bowl of granola

Weekends are often cheat days when it comes to eating, so during the week, everyone should focus heavily on eating healthy. Start the day of the week with high-protein meals to keep you full and energetic. You can always opt for a convenient and nutritious ‘oatmeal granola bar’ or a ‘granola bowl’ which is a mix of granola, yogurt, fresh cut fruit, with a drizzle of honey.

Tuesday | Fruit and chia pudding or parfait

Nothing can go wrong with a quick and easy parfait filled with berries or seasonal fruit. Adding chia seeds can unlock the goodness of protein, fiber, and Omega-3. Walnuts can be added for good fats and oatmeal for high fiber content. This is a nutrition-packed, on-the-go breakfast option.

Wednesday | Sourdough bread topped with hummus, mushrooms

Transform crackers into healthy snacks with a few simple changes. Take ragi or grits crackers and top them with healthy plant-based spreads like hummus and sprinkle with sautéed mushrooms. You can also try the beet, spinach or basil hummus, or the mashed eggs. Use sourdough bread which can act as a prebiotic and help support a stable and healthy digestive system.

Thursday | Cold fruit salad with fresh herbs and candied walnuts

A plate of seasonal fruits is always the best way to start the day. Mix with herbs and nuts. Combined with the anti-inflammatory goodness of herbs and the richness of nuts, a fruit-based breakfast can keep you energized throughout the day.

friday | Crispy Bacon, Egg and Cheese with Mustard and Mayonnaise Sandwich

An alternative to this could be an avocado toast or a peach and rosemary focaccia bread filled with eggs and vegetables. There is no particular time when you can eat a sandwich. You can always start your day with a high-protein sandwich and get fat from meat, eggs, or plant-based fats like avocado. The dressings and fillings can be vegetarian or non-vegetarian.

saturday | Vegetable sandwich with dried tomatoes

This is an easy and healthy breakfast for any day of the week. Packed with the high nutritional value of fresh greens, with the sweet and tangy flavor of dried tomatoes, this is a crunchy and delicious sandwich. Use any bread.

Sunday | Seasonal Smoothie Bowl

A rich fruit smoothie topped with cut fruit, granola and honey. End the week with a smoothie bowl mixed with fruit, granola, and a dash of honey. It is the best way to end a week or start one. Choose seasonal fruits for smoothie bowls, as they are a good source of fiber, protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates to start your day.
