A plate for a Balanced Breakfast!

Ok here comes a post for which I didn't have to cook anything but got things together to make them very balanced. Now you know for which event this is going right. I guess the life of a food blogger revolves around the different events that get hosted. Had my folks really understood this concept, either they might sulk or try to get the different hosts to host things more on their liking. I guess it might be the second thought mostly. We have always been on pursuit to find the ideal breakfast to help us going for the whole day. Though the lunch is typically rice and dal types, since its always hurried, we don't really pay much attention to it. And dinners are always very light. This pattern has been our life style for a while. So we plan to eat a balanced one with all right one in its proportions. So towards that, we normally include eggs, nuts and fruits to the breakfast plate. A while ago, we had Plantain stem juice or Beet and Carrot Juice accompanying our breakfast. Once I met a dietician, who advised on only drinking Tomato juice and should not eat anything solid. Well I followed that too for a while. Though it was good, because you got to slip a glass full of crushed tomatoes for 15 mins, I couldn't continue for long. Then came the days with fruits and salads. That continued for a season. We are now back to our regular breakfast with addition of nuts and fruits.

Now I thought I have the perfect balanced breakfast in front of me, when Hubby dear played the spoiled sport and refused to have eggs the day I was ready to click. However much I tried convincing him, he wouldn't agree. So I just got to do with a plate without the eggs!

Mixed Fruit Sandwich, Cheese Sandwich with Almonds and Raisins along with Banana for a healthy balanced breakfast.

This plate goes to Mansi who is hosting WBB, short for Weekend Breakfast Blogging, an event started by Nandita of Saffron Trail. The theme for this edition is Balanced Breakfast.

Old habits are hard to break. In Mysore my mom used to make these for me before school and these days it is still my breakfast. In fact my husband's breakfast is the same ;o) Very healthy breakfast dear.
PS (Ashaji, Sriji, I've actually eaten at the Dosa Man's cart. and its unbelievable how perfect his dosas are even though he is making them on his cart!)

Bread makes me sluggish, but sometimes I just can't face one more fruit in the morning, and crave for bread - I rarely keep it at home.

Pooja V said...

Trupti said...

nice entry..healthy..balanced & easy to make

Kamini said...

Yummy looking breakfast. My only suggestion to make it even healthier would be to use whole-grain bread, rather than white bread.

Jayashree said...

It sure is a healthy one....but somehow for me, I don't feel that sandwiches give me the right start to a day...it's fine as a snack but not for brkfast....but then, that's just me :-)

Sig said...

You are eating way too healthy girl... :)
I cannot imagine drinking just tomato juice.... now, if it is a bloody mary, then may be :)

Raaga said...

so colourful :-)

Srivalli said...

Jayashree, yeah thats true..me too get hungry soon on a bread day..but then these days since we include so many other items..its manageable..

Sig, hhaha..thank you thank you..trying to keep up to it...now now..we can't get into bloody mary so early in the morning right...or can we..LOL!

Raaga, thanks!

I don't see how that is a balanced breakfast. The fruit jam is very high in sugar and white bread is just a processed piece of crap..Whole wheat is a healthier option.
The only healthy items are the banana and the almonds....

Srivalli said...

Winnie I agree whole wheat is much healthier, but what's shown is not an everyday meal. so I guess once in a meal is fine.
