Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s interesting to find out how completely different kinds of food are served up in the morning depending on the country and the culture. For some people, breakfast should be akin to a full meal; for others, it’s little more than a light snack.
Over the course of 11 days, we at Enlighten tried 11 different breakfasts eaten by people in various countries. Each day, they were prepared by our wonderful inhouse chefs. As it turned out, we enjoyed the Egyptian and Israeli ones the most. Which ones have you tried?
What we liked: A filling and tasty breakfast. The large number of proteins provide energy for a long time.
What we didn’t like: There’s a lot of fried food here. The combination of beans, mushrooms, and fried bacon is not easy on the stomach. This amount of food is more suited to lunch.
What we liked: The bread, vegetables, and dairy products were filling, but not too much.
What we didn’t like: A breakfast made up of small snacks is not quite as good as hot food.
What we liked: A very filling and very healthy breakfast. The various little dishes provide you with plenty of vitamins and nutrients. A great way to start a busy day.
What we didn’t like: It’s hard to find any faults with this breakfast, other than that it takes a long time to eat.
What we liked: It’s simple, quick, and very tasty.
What we didn’t like: This is a small breakfast, and we were left still feeling hungry. It’s also not very healthy.
What we liked: A breakfast that will be familiar to many – one that’s tasty, filling, and packed with carbohydrates and protein.
What we didn’t like: Garlic for breakfast is an acquired taste.
What we liked: An ideal quick breakfast if you’re late for work.
What we didn’t like: A very light breakfast that will leave you feeling hungry.
What we liked: A very filling breakfast.
What we didn’t like: This was the heaviest breakfast of all, which not everyone will be able to eat entirely without feeling overfull. It works best when you eat only certain elements rather than the whole thing.
What we liked: It’s sweet and very filling.
What we didn’t like: It’s too sweet and too filling. We were left feeling bloated, but this quickly turned into hunger.
What we liked: It’s very tasty.
What we didn’t like: There wasn’t enough of it.
What we liked: Shakshouka is not just a dish of fried eggs with tomatoes. It has a very striking taste as a result of the ripe tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and spices. A surprisingly tasty breakfast.
What we didn’t like: We liked everything.
What we liked: This is a very balanced breakfast that contains carbohydrates, vegetable proteins, and dairy products. It all combines together perfectly.
What we didn’t like: For those who like meat, it’s not the best choice.
