Cliche quotes aside, a proper breakfast sets the tone for the day and our fitfam friends can confirm there are serious health benefits that come with a solid breakfast. Some eggs and toast with a glass of juice preferably 5Alive Pulpy or Tropical or Apple, whatever floats your boat really

Breakfasts around the world may vary greatly, but they all share a mutual heartiness. Even more noticeable is how they all work so well with Orange Juice.

Here are 5 popular breakfasts from countries around the world that we think highlight our little theory. 

English

The Full English is gluttony on a plate. Plain and simple. There’s no other reason to have sausage and bacon on the same breakfast plate. When preparing the first ever Full English, I’m sure there was some indecision so they just went with both bacon and sausage.

American

Compared to the English, I’d say the Americans are a bit conservative with their breakfast, which is weird because Americans are known to be the greediest of them all. For breakfast, they keep it simple -  a short stack or a waffle accompanied by eggs and some bacon.

Nigerian

Akara, Pap, Moin-Moin, Yam, Egg are what immediately come to mind as Nigerian breakfast food. However, Nigerians don’t really have certain foods they won’t eat for breakfast.  Pounded yam and okra could also be considered a breakfast of champions.

Japanese

Quite similar to a Nigerian breakfast which is very carb heavy and could be considered lunch or dinner food in other societies. Steamed Rice + a soup dish (usually miso) + a protein and sometimes Natto (fermented soybeans) are the main components of a traditional Japanese Breakfast.

Moroccan

The first thing that immediately comes to mind for Moroccan food is likely couscous for most people but that's not quite breakfast food in Morocco. Typically, a Moroccan breakfast would consist of tea (mint and other herbal teas), bread (so important that it’s usually not just one type) and eggs  (fried or baked - shakshuka). Olives, fruits and cheese also often can be found on the breakfast table.
