5 good lunches

5 bons déjeuners

According to a poll by Ricardo/Light, 80% of Quebecers eat breakfast almost every morning. In this period of confinement, the breakfast is more common, because the lack of time is no longer evoked as an excuse for not eating.

However, many tend to eat consistently the same thing every morning so that variety is always a guarantee of health. For others, the breakfast is mainly composed of carbohydrates, while a protein intake significant can we satiate for longer and most importantly, prevent the cravings in the morning. This week, I offer you 5 balanced breakfasts !
