And I would say “never say never”. I know what you’re thinking: slices of bacon, high in cholesterol eggs, greasy sausages. What if I promised you a breakfast, that would enrich your diet in calcium, folic acid, vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium? Yes, you can get all these from a smartly cooked English Breakfast.
These are ingredients of our breakfast:
– Beans, mushrooms and tomatoes are low in saturated fat and very low in cholesterol.
– Eggs and meats: pork bacon and sausages are a good source of protein and Selenium, but might be dangerous for those, who must watch their figure because of their high level of saturated fats.
– Simple toast of wheat bread is low in cholesterol and saturated fats, plus it is a source of Selenium and Magnesium. What kills the healthy diet is a spread, which we put on it. Butter, margarine and cheese are extremely high in calories.
We all love barbeques, so let’s prepare English Breakfast on a grill and not a frying pan filled with oil.
If you worry about high cholesterol, use the egg white only.
For those who count calories every day, I would recommend filling their plate with mushrooms and tomatoes instead of slices of bacon. Vegetables contain a good source of dietary fibre, that will fill up your stomach plus they are rich in Thiamine, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Folate, Potassium, Manganese, Phosphorus and Copper.
Meet me tomorrow morning for English Breakfast! Will you? ;)
