Importance of a good breakfast – Begin your day right

Everyone knows that eating breakfast is the most vital thing to do to begin your day well, but do you ever wonder why you should? Read on.

The King Meal

For years now, our elders have asked us to never miss breakfast. They also say that one should eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a common man and dinner like a poor man. Meaning; a heavy breakfast, a medium lunch and light dinner.


Skipping breakfast leads to overeating at later meals like lunch or dinner say, experts and doctors. This will also help you maintain your weight over time, as your meals at the end of the day will not be as large as it would with no breakfast.

How to manage time

Even if you are late for work or have someplace to be, try your best to grab breakfast on your way. Top restaurants in Colombo offer healthy breakfast options now and you could stop at a place like Rare at Residence and have a bite before you go on your way.

Having the edge

Scientists also state that having breakfast daily gives you an advantage over the breakfast skippers by giving you better abilities to enhance your attention, memory, information processing speed, creativity and overall abilities that make one smart.
