7 Healthy Ideas For Breakfast in Dubai
But your daily breakfast has started to get a bit dull. From the usual bowl of oatmeal and a glass of OJ to the occasional scrambled eggs and toast with coffee, you may find yourself in a rut when it comes to breakfast. Dubai caterers offer these seven healthy ideas for that all-important first meal of the day:
1. Try a high-fiber cereal plus soy milk.
If you really are tired of the usual cereal, go for high-fiber cereal and then top it off with soy milk instead of regular milk, or half and half. Soy milk contains phytoestrogens, which help protect your heart. Meanwhile, eating two bowls of high-fiber cereal allows you to cut fat by 10 percent.
2. Get creative and go vegetarian, if only for breakfast.
High on protein, low on fat — this is possible with a vegetarian breakfast. You can crumble up tofu and sauté it like scrambled eggs, adding turmeric (for color as well as flavor), a dash of soy sauce, pepper, and cilantro. You can pair this with a bowl of brown rice or spread over rye toast.
3. Go organic.
Organic eggs are packed with nutrients. Instead of the usual factory-farmed eggs, which may be loaded with growth hormones, you can make the better choice with sunny side up, scrambled, or boiled organic eggs.
4. Add shaves of dark chocolate to your nonfat yoghurt.
Do you have a sweet tooth? You don’t have to overdo it with jam or anything sugary for breakfast. You can still have a healthy and sweet meal with a bowl of sliced strawberries and nonfat yoghurt topped with shaves of dark chocolate.
5. Try a different kind of sandwich.
Think multigrain bagels with low fat cheese, a slice of mango, and flaxseeds; whole wheat toast with smoked salmon, lemon cream cheese, and dill, or turkey bacon wrap with mustard mayo.
6. Consider international cuisine.
Why limit your options to just continental or even Middle Eastern breakfasts? Think about what the Greeks, Japanese, or Mexicans would have at the start of their day, and incorporate those dishes to your own breakfast.
7. Indulge. Have a catered breakfast.
Finally, who says you have to prepare your own breakfast. Whether you have an early morning meeting with clients or need to go over a project with your team first thing in the morning, your workday will be better with a full spread of whole wheat banana muffins, traditional scones, bagels with cream cheese pesto and basil, muesli and yoghurt, and a delectable and healthy selection of other breakfast dishes.
