What better way than to start the day with an amazing and tasty breakfast?
I am a big fan of breakfast, this is not a secret anymore. Basically it does not matter where I am in the world: I wake up already smiling because I am going to make the best meal. It is like an every day dream that becomes true: it is the way your body wakes up after the night, it is the rainbow that brightens your sunrise.
If you are still wondering how much time you should spend on it well I suggest you to take a look in here (Breakfast? 10 easy steps to start and love it instantly): talking personally, I could spend 2 hours just sitting and enjoying my awakening process.
And one thing I like to do it is try and change what to eat: it is always amazing to try new foods, to combine several varieties of food and create your magical dish.
Ever thought about the typical breakfast of other countries in the world? I started to feel so curious about that since a few years ago I started to look for more about it: by reading or trying it directly on the spot, my breakfast horizon becomes bigger and bigger and I cannot be more happy than this.
Any examples of breakfast? Time to move on and start to explore this magical land.
5 tasty breakfasts from the world
*1 Egypt, Africa
Let us start this culinary trip to the northern side of Africa, where you can get an amazing meal for your breakfast: Ful Medames, which most Egyptians consider as the national dish. This super delicious recipe is made with fava beans (the main ingredient), tomatoes, garlic, lemon juice, onions, parsley, cumin and olive oil. Usually it can be served with boiled eggs and bread (Eish Masri or Eish Baladi): the bread is very important in the Egyptian culture and it literally means “life”.
And what to drink besides it? Coffee and tea are always available for a great breakfast. In addition to this you should not miss to try out karkadè, an infusion of hibiscus that can be served cold or hot and it contains a lot of beneficial properties.
What if you need some sweets to start the day? Then you should consider to try Halawa, which is eaten at breakfast as well as after lunch or dinner: made from sesame paste, it is sometimes infused with other types of food to add to its flavor, like pistachios and almonds.

If you can try it when it is fresh and enjoy the crispy surface and the warm tender texture inside. Absolutely delicious.
