Growing up, how many of you remember hearing that breakfast was the most important meal of the day? I fondly remember taking the time to sit down with the rest of the family and eating a full-balanced meal; it was a great way to start the day! As times have changed, so too has the way most of us eat breakfast. It seems that everyone is in such a hurry now that almost everything is in a to-go form (whether it’s an entire meal packed into a bar or blended into a smoothie). Call us old fashioned, but we thought we’d take a trip down memory lane and reminisce on how breakfast used to be. This is how we remember breakfast!
6. Freshly-Squeezed Juice
Whether you had a fancy juice press, or you did it with your hands, it seems like there was always freshly-squeezed juice waiting for you at the table (usually either orange juice or grapefruit). This was the best type of juice; not from concentrate or loaded with sugar, just juice at it’s purest. Not to mention the added-benefit of starting your day with a workout (juicing wasn’t easy but it was definitely worth it)!
5. Toast On The Side
If there’s one thing I’ve noticed for sure, it’s that people hate carbs. I remember growing up, no matter what was for breakfast, we always had toast on the side (in fact sometimes, the toast was the main entree). Some of us may have had an old-fashion toaster like the one picture below, but how many of you remember toasting your bread in the oven? Whether it was plain toast with butter or a little cinnamon and sugar, it was always a delicious addition to breakfast.
