breaking the fast

breakfast is called breakfast because it's a meal that breaks our night fast. hence, saying that it's the most important meal of the day is so correct. mine today is breakfast A: okra, egg and rice. okra, aside from being low in calories, has plenty of vitamin A, Thiamin, B6, C, folic acid, riboflavin, calcium, zinc and dietary fiber. eggs are a good source of low-cost high-quality protein. rice (which is staple here) provides fast and instant energy and pretty good bowel movement, stabilizes blood sugar levels and provides essential source of vitamin B1. rice (eaten in moderation, say half a cup?) is good for the skin too and helps build resistance to high blood pressure, dysentery and heart diseases. most of all, i cooked all of it in one sitting - fast, cheap, healthy! breakfast anyone?
