Where would we be without breakfast? It's the fuel we need to see us through a busy day - or at least until lunchtime. That's why lots of people believe it's the most important meal of the day and you may well have heard the saying that, to stay healthy, we should "breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dine like a pauper".
With this in mind, we've been on the search for some of Singapore's most flavour and energy-packed breakfast options. And, to make them even healthier choices, we've concentrated on treats from some of the city's best breakfast takeaways, who offer plenty of vegetarian options.
So, next time you're tempted to skip breakfast, make time instead, and you'll find that any of the dishes here will give a real flying start to your day.
1. Apple Muesli - Saladstop!
If you thought muesli was quite a dull kind of breakfast, then you just haven't been eating the right kind – as this tasty treat from Saladstop! will prove. It's packed with great stuff including unsweetened rolled oats, green apple, Greek yoghurt, dried cranberries, chia seeds, milk, honey, and golden raisins so there's a fantastic range of tastes and textures that really come to life when the muesli's served with fresh, cold milk.
2. Pancakes with Warm Maple Butter - Clinton St Baking Co.
Pancakes with toppings are a classic breakfast in America - and all over the world - and here's a fantastic stack from Clinton St Baking Co. First, they make them fresh to order using their own special pancake batter recipe, then they smother them with warm butter infused with maple syrup and, finally, they add your choice of topping whether it's plump, fresh blueberries, bananas and walnuts, or milk chocolate chunks.
3. Summer Chia Pudding - Grounded By Common Man
Don't be put off by the "pudding" in its name, this offering from Grounded By Common Man is as perfect a breakfast as you'll ever find. The chia seeds, a well-known superfood, are steeped in almond milk and blended with honey, yoghurt, and blueberry puree. Then, almonds and coconut shards are added into the mix along with seasonal fruit fresh from the market. The result is amazing!
4. Caribbean - Wild Honey
Wild Honey bring you that other great US breakfast diner classic, the sweet waffle, but add their own unique twist to it too. The Caribbean consists of freshly-made coconut waffles served with passion fruit crème patisserie, mango slices, and banana, topped off with coconut flakes and passion fruit syrup. You just won't find a more energy-filled start to the day!
5. Summer Garden Super Bowl - Craftsmen
The perfect choice from Craftsmen if you just don't think there's going to be time for lunch, the Summer Garden Super Bowl is full of good things like mixed mesclun greens, sliced beetroot, pomegranate seeds, feta cheese, mushrooms and roasted nuts, all with a light balsamic dressing. Believe us, it really does taste as fantastic as it looks!
