It is easy to get into the habit of starting the day with something which is only an addictive drug and not a healthy drink or meal. Breakfasts can be a highly imaginative beginning to the day, giving us a positive stimulus to extract the maximum amount of enjoyment from the hours ahead. Nutritionists believe that breakfasts are important, but I tend to think that we know how our bodies work best.
Some people will luxuriate on quite a large breakfast, while others merely want a refreshing drink. There is a huge difference between the breakfasts you trouble to make yourself out of fresh ingredients and the ones you get out of a carton or packet. This is true even of fruit juice. A juice made of whole apples two minutes before it is drunk is a revelation in taste experience. I say this even though you can now buy excellent natural fruit juices without additives. If you can afford it, it is worthwhile investing in a good juice extractor which will make excellent juices from beetroots/beets and carrots, as well as apples and pears. Do not use them for citrus fruits because the taste of the whole peel is not pleasant.
