What is the most scientific breakfast?

Reply Wed 21 Sep, 2005 11:25 am
lately, i have been researching what foods are best for breakfast.
i want to discuss :
1. scientifically, what should your breakfast aim for?
2. which foods would actually fit in to that criteria?
3. breakfast should be raw or cooked? and why?
4. what are your all time favorite breakfast recipes?

Sorry for saying so, but this is a poorly worded question. (I hope a teacher gave you this question to make this point).

The term "scientifically" doesn't make sense in this context. There is no "should" in science... as science doesn't make any moral judgement about what is "good" or "bad".

Sorry to be pedantic... but let me try to rephrase the question.

What foods should I eat where there is scientific evidence that it will improve my health?

There is a lot of scientific research I know of that says the obvious-- avoiding certain foods increases your life expectancy and lowers your chance of certain health problems.
- No high fat food.
- No very salty food.
- Don't smoke. etc.

I think the best you are going to get is the food pyramid stuff (is this US only? there must be an equivalent from the Australian government) which is research based... but from a public heath goal which may be a bit different from what you would want to do as an individual.

If you haven't seen it the food pyramid groups foods in classes (i.e. carbohydrates vs. fruits and vegegtalbes) and suggests the proportions in which you should eat them.

I don't know of any scientific reason that breakfast should be any different than any other meal.

Tang and Ovaltine. I know that Tang was used by Astronauts so how much more scientific can you get? And Ovaltine is basically a made up mix that is supposed to include all your vitamins, etc.

Ive been trying to rejig my breakfast the last few weeks as Ive become bored and wary of all
breakfast cereals available.
I heard that a bowl of cornflakes has more salt in it than a packet of crisps.

I love the idea of a huge fry up in the morning then I probably wouldnt need to eat again til dinner.
Is there such a thing as a healthy fry up?

I remember those breakfasts on my visit to England and Scotland. Yummy! I loved staying at those small B&Bs and having the full breakfast - I didn't have to eat all day.

Mr. Green

My fav brekkie has always been fish and bread and butter, If I'm in Scotland then it's Arbroath smokies, in England Finny haddock or any white fish haddock, cod etc.

Fish high in protein, bread good for you, you cant beat it. It's a family tradition we were raised that way.
