Rush, rush, rush.  Too busy to eat.

Worryingly, a recent survey showed that over half of Britons skip breakfast.  That’s 25 million people missing breakfast. Yup, 50% rush out of the door without taking the time to have the most important meal of the day. Compare this with four years ago, when only 20% miss breakfast.

Oh no! Unless we Save Our Breakfast, this heart-warming time will dwindle until it becomes a historical event.

The reason for missing breakfast that the respondents of the survey gave was that their busy lives meant morning meals now slip off their ‘to do’ list more frequently than ever before. You can read the article about the survey here.

It’s really lovely to have breakfast together, even if it means waking up 15 minutes earlier to share this precious moment before the day begins and the outside world intrudes.

Breakfast sets you up for the day and sets the day off to a good start both mentally and physically. Because if one skips breakfast, then one is more likely to snack on easily available unhealthy food throughout the morning.

OK, it can be a chore waking up extra early to cook an elaborate breakfast, here’s my ONBIJT MUFFIN, that I made the night before so that all my useless-in-the-kitchen partner has to do is put in the oven, get back to bed for 4

0 minutes, and then hot breakfast is ready. Click here:here:

You might have guessed, ONBIJT means breakfast in Dutch. A beautiful word for a beautiful time of day ❤
