Kellogg's Waale Guptaji ka Nashta

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Dietitians say that, old fellows from our family say that, even the wisdom passed down from ages speak of this fact! After all, breakfast provides one's body with important nutrients and energy which helps us kick start our day on a healthy note after being deprived of food all night.

Breakfast is the first meal of the day, and it is the meal that the body uses to top up its glucose levels after eight to twelve hours of fasting.  Glucose is vital for the brain and it’s the main energy source for the body. As well, it also fuels the muscles that are necessary for physical activity through the day.  If you skip breakfast, you will have a shorter attention span, be less alert, take longer to react, have low blood sugar, and decreased productivity.

There goes this proverb that eat your breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dinner like a Pauper. But these days, due to our sedentary and fast-paced lifestyle, where we are forever facing time-crunch, that is, are short of time, whipping up a decent and healthy breakfast to fuel us is a hard task. Generally, I wake up late and am rushing throughout to reach college in time for my first lecture, which if I, God Forbid, miss, will spell doom for my already falling attendance rate. In this scenario, I usually end up skipping breakfast or eat something like a Vada Pav from my college canteen. Yes, I see you cringe on my breakfast choice, but what can a girl who has no choice do?

Now, the only day I have off is Sunday. And I certainly would not prefer getting up early morning and struggling in the kitchen's heat to cook myself a lovely breakfast, even though I would definitely love eating a lovely breakfast on Sundays. Last Sunday, I dragged myself in the kitchen to fix myself something to eat that morning. I had no clue where to begin, so I called up my mother back home. She reminded me that I have a savior in the form of the internet. I quickly started my laptop and searched for easy breakfast recipes. Now this is where I came across the Youtube channel of Kellogg's India, featuring over hundreds of easy to make breakfast recipes by a certain Guptaji's family.

The name ringed a bell in my mind, but it was only after I made the Cornflakes Pomegranate Raita that I suddenly figured out that this is my classmate's family! That explained the delicious breakfast she carried everyday to college, without fail, to me!

Now, I have begun dreaming of going to her house, that is, Guptaji's house, to feast on the lovely breakfast next Sunday. I have come up with the plan to make a trip to the Gupta Residence next Sunday under the pretext of working for a college project.
