Why is breakfast important?

Breakfast is often called 'the most important meal of the day', and for good reason. As the name suggests, breakfast breaks the overnight fasting period. It replenishes your supply of glucose to boost your energy levels and alertness, while also providing other essential nutrients required for good health.

Foods to use on a Mediterranean breakfast board:

1. The main item on the breakfast board is falafel (flavorful, protein-packed chickpea patties.) You can follow this recipe to make falafel patties in advance and simply freeze them until ready to fry or bake.

2. Dips. like creamy hummus and baba ganoush (eggplant dip) are always winners. Both can be prepared the night before and stored in tight-lid glass containers in the fridge.

3 Cheese. Enough to add a dairy element. Use homemade labneh with a drizzle of olive oil on top, or, as you see on the board, a few slices of good feta cheese, or feta cheese spiced with herbs and peppers. .

4. Fresh vegetables like sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppery radish. You my add a small bowl of tabouli (chopped parsley and buldur). Don't forget some marinated olives, artichokes, or mushrooms. A handful of grapes to be used as a pallet cleanser.

6- Most important are the morning carbs. Flatbread or pita are the perfect choice for this Mediterranean breakfast board. Slice the pita into triangle and toast them if the bread was not baked in the morning.
