European breakfasts

March 16, 2015 , ,

Dietitians never tire of telling us that breakfast is a very important meal, and that it should provide an average of 20 to 25% of the daily total energy intake and be balanced.

In fact, after 10 to 12 hours of fasting, our body needs to rebuild its reserves of glucose, the brain’s basic fuel which improves mental performances, memory and concentration before midday.

That said, if you’ve only ever drunk a coffee or juice every morning, it’s not easy to change this habit. Being a typical Italian, I know a bit about this myself, for during my academic years, I always left home with a belly “full” of cappuccino and of a slice of toast with jam (by 10 am I was already hungry and yawning in class 🙁 ). It took me years to get used to eating a hearty breakfast that keeps me feeling full for a long time.

So, to help our European members who are not too fond of the breakfasts that dietitians propose, we have added more “continental” versions to our menus. Of these, we particularly recommend breakfasts that contain more than 12 grams of protein (Agen, Bordeaux, Nice and Strasbourg).

Try some of them:
