Fact: I will never get tired of champorado (sweet chocolate porridge) or bangusilog.
Bangusilog is a staple breakfast meal among Filipinos. It is a combination of Bangus (milkfish) Sinangang (fried rice), and Itlog (egg). Doesn’t it look indulging?
Ideally, breakfast is vital because it breaks the overnight fasting period. It also replenishes your supply of glucose and provides other essential nutrients to keep your energy levels up throughout the day. That’s why most nutritionists give an adequate amount of breakfast because we have the whole day to burn those calories!
But, breakfast meals could be endless! Plus, if you constantly eat the same meal, it might get boring. So, let’s take your breakfast to the next level with these 10 sumptuous breakfast ideas available online!

As we all know, Martha Stewart is a lifestyle guru and known for her remarkable books on cooking, entertaining and decorating. Such is her creative take on oatmeal. I mean who would’ve thought of adding the egg in a bowl of oatmeal?
As instructed, just add a pinch of salt and pepper rather than cinnamon or sugar. Then finish it with an over-easy or scrambled egg on top, sprinkled with cheddar cheese and chopped scallions. I’ve tried it this morning and it’s not bad at all. But I still prefer the original oatmeal with milk! Have you tried this recipe, yet?
