‘Breakfast like a king, lunch like a knave and dine like a pauper’, so the saying goes but, in fact, breakfast does not have to mean a full blown meal. These healthy recipes will have your day off to a flying start. 

Breakfasts that supply slow-release carbohydrates, such as the overnight porridge below, are ideal choices for avoiding mid-morning energy dips.

The carbohydrates are converted slowly into sugar, which helps to keep blood sugar levels stable, staving off hunger-pangs.
