Breakfast From Around the World [infographic]
In honor of the final episode of Breaking Bad that aired this week, let’s give a shout out to breakfast–the most important meal of the day–and by far, Walt Jr.’s favorite.
Today’s infographic explores more than just bacon and eggs. It gives us a look at dining tables of breakfast eaters from around the world. Australians apparently prefer a brown spread called Vegemite on their toast in the morning; the Japanese enjoy soy beans on rice; the Moroccans like lamb stew; and Argentineans frequently sip Yerba Mate–a delicious, highly caffeinated tea.
And I couldn’t profess my love for breakfast properly without acknowledging a Texas favorite, the all-mighty and powerful breakfast taco. My personal favorite: potato, egg, cheese, and nopalitos (prickly pear!).
We’ve also probably all heard that in order to start your day right you need to eat a healthy breakfast. And according to today’s infographic, eating breakfast everyday makes you less likely to develop diabetes, and may even decrease your chances of becoming obese. Kids who eat breakfast also score 17.5% higher on math tests!
And let’s not forget that winter is approaching. I think eating a hot breakfast when the weather gets chilly is particularly satisfying. For me, a bowl of oatmeal or miso soup is the best way to wake up.
Go ahead, dig into today’s delicious infographic, and have a great rest of your day! [Via]
