Naashta or breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And contrary to those who believe in having a light one, it actually has to be a good hearty meal. A full stomach early in the morning will be well digested and utilized by tje end of day providing you energy and satisfaction too. After all who can fuction well ifnyour brain keeps thinking of food all the time ?
Being a breakfast skipper all during the college days , i got back into the habit of having breakfast when I joined work and made friends who could not function without breakfast. Gradually thi one habit helped me a lot in weight management and to avoid high calorie snacking during the day.
Thankfully the office cafeteria also had cold milk with fruits and kellogs as an option and so started my journey with kellogs.
Over the period of time I moved into a house of my own with a kitchen and then married into a foodie family but what i still miss most about my first job , I think breakfast options would be second to the friends who accompanied me for naashta daily.
Who doesn’t like to be served fresh and healthy breakfast every day ? If i ever have the liberty and luxury of having a cook, i will keep him/her only for breakfast. I love to cook rest of the meals but not unless am well fed. You can expect a dinner invite from me if you agree to serve me breakfast ( preferable in bed ;) ) fed up of making parathaas or maggi daily, some of the kellogs ready made and easy to make and have options like corn flakes , crunchy nut museli , microwave cooked masala oats became a norm in my kitchen. Even at the in-laws, no one was complaining ’cause we were getting our fair share of grainy nutrition right in the morning. Then gradually I became curious about what more can be done with these ingredients that is as tasy and as healthy.
Chef Vikas says that every food ingredient has some replacement in terms if health or taste depending on what you prefer. And so my search led me to https://www.facebook.com/anaajkanashta where there is so much to try and surprise my family with.
Be it papaji who loves anything healthy , or the younger brother who likes his meals few but very full, or my conventional mummyji or the husband who is a little moody with food choices but loves to experiment , kellogs has a product and multiple recipes for everyone here – https://www.youtube.com/user/kelloggindia
So it brings back to breakfast served to the family not cooked by me or MIL. If given a chance , I will request kellogs waale guptaji and family to let us join them over a breakfast of cabbage corn salad for papa , cornflakes chana chaat for brother and mummy who like anything spicy, cornflakes fruity yoghurt cup for husband and lastly cheesy cornflakes for myself ( the name itself gives me so much giggles ). Being a good guest , we are not supposed to go empty handed so I will take cornflakes coconut laddoo for them. Afterall , whats a welcome or thank you without sweets ?
You think all this is too much to handle at one time ? Oh no way ! With just a little preparation in the early morning, every member can have a wonderful healthy breakfast and also have a wonderful day ahead , thanks to kellogs and the so innovative recipes avaialble on one click.
Grains , milk , raw veggies or fruits and some nuts ! Can anyone beat this healthy and pocket friendly option for naashta !!
