unknown-2 Breakfast, there are two words here – break and fast.   We break the fast (not eating) from the time we went to bed until the time we wake up. Our body is like a car, we run out of gas/petrol and need to fuel up.

Think of it this way, one of your parents or guardians does not put gasoline/petrol into the car before going to work in the morning. The car needs energy to work and this is the same with the human body.

When I was a kid, I couldn’t eat any food until an hour or so after I got out of bed. I would make a peanut and banana sandwich.   I ate this upon arriving at school. As soon as I ate, I could feel the energy coming into my mind.

Here is an idea for an easy to make breakfast.

  • 1 egg
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 English muffin
  • pat butter
  • slice of cheese (optional)
  • 1 tsp butter for muffin
  • bacon


  • Heat a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place an egg ring or round cookie cutter (about 3 1/4 in. in diameter) in pan and place 1/2 tsp butter inside ring.
  • Beat 1 egg in a bowl with a pinch each of salt and pepper until egg white and yolk are mixed together.
  • Toast a split English muffin.
  • When butter in pan is melted and sizzling, pour egg into ring (it will begin to bubble), turn heat down slightly and cook for 3 min or until egg is almost fully set (top will still be runny).
  • Run the tip of a knife inside the metal ring to loosen, pull off and flip egg in pan. Cook for 30 sec. or until just set.
  • Top with 1/2 oz thinly sliced cheddar cheese.
  • Butter English muffin with 1 tsp of butter and place egg with cheese. Serve immediately or wrap in waxed paper to eat on the go.
