We have heard this one a lot, haven’t we? But starting from school, my food habits have always been the other way around. I almost always used to skip breakfast, have meagre lunch and come home famished, only to hog for dinner. This went on till I reached Hyderabad. Somewhere, mom’s warnings and information from websites started getting me to think and I thought I might as well correct the mistakes before I get too old to do it 😀
Now, my meals are as balanced as possible, and food in office helps me to do this immensely. We have a wide range of options in our office cafe and every day is a new and fresh day as far as meals are concerned.
This is my typical breakfast on weekdays. Wheat flakes with 1/2 cup milk and one tsp sugar, one cup watermelon, one cup papaya and an orange (sometimes).
Here is how each of this helps to keep me balanced throughout the day 🙂
Wheat flakes are very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Vitamin A, and a very good source of Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12 and Iron.
Papayas have 33% more vitamin C and 50% more potassium than oranges with fewer calories. Papayas have 13 times more vitamin C and more than twice the potassium than apples. Papayas have four times more vitamin E than both apples and oranges.
Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C, and is also a very good source of vitamin A, notably through its concentration of beta-carotene. Watermelon is extremely high in water content, approximately 92%, giving its flesh a crumbly and subtly crunchy texture and making it a favorite thirst-quenching fruit.
