Think about one of those days when you leave home without having breakfast, and by mid-morning, you feel your stomach starting to rumble. Not only are you distracted by hunger, but you also notice how your energy fades and your focus evaporates. What a way to start the day! But don’t worry, we have the solution: Treat yourself and prepare a healthy and delicious breakfast in just a few minutes.
When we nourish ourselves properly in the morning, we’re charging our batteries for the entire day. Our brain functions better, we’re more alert, and we can concentrate on all the tasks ahead. Having healthy breakfasts makes us invincible.
But when did the trend of having coffee or tea for breakfast become popular?
Coffee and tea: The drinks of a healthy breakfast
Coffee and tea became popular as morning routines became more vibrant and hectic. In the mid-19th century, breakfast was no longer just a meal for the upper class, and workers began to consume stimulating beverages to help them face the day. Tea and coffee became the preferred choices to feel refreshed and energized before diving into their workdays.
Coffee is a stimulant that helps us wake up, enhances brain activity, contains antioxidant properties, and also provides us with vitamins and minerals like magnesium and potassium.
On the other hand, tea is also a great neural stimulant and has a high amount of flavonoids and vitamin H that boost the body’s defenses, reduce cellular damage, and lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
So, whether you enjoy the relaxing aroma of tea or the delightful flavor and stimulating power of coffee, take a moment to savor your favorite cup and cheers to breakfast and all the exciting mornings that await you!

Heat a grill pan with a few drops of oil and cook the cheese over high heat until it browns and gains color, turning the portions before they start to melt.
Place each cheese portion on a slice of bread and cover with the quince paste. Garnish with thyme and freshly ground black pepper. Serve hot.
