    You can't beat a full English Breakfast

    Apart from the news that the French have finally realised that their food is mostly garlic laden muck in pathetic portions, this is no surprise.



    Some French people are as fanatical for fry ups as the British, according to a new hotel food survey.
    As many as 19% of French people asked said the English breakfast was the best first meal of the day in hotels, the poll by Hotels.com found.
    Overall the traditional English came out as the top type of breakfast in the survey of 2,400 travellers from more than 20 countries, including the UK.
    As many as 55% of the Britons polled opted for an English breakfast when staying abroad, with 26% taking traditional breakfast foods away with them.
    More than a third (34%) of British travellers admitted taking teabags on holiday, while 8% have taken bacon and 1% have taken brown sauce or tomato ketchup.
    When it comes to buffets, 10% of Britons admitted stashing food away to eat later.
    Nearly half (47%) the Germans polled said they revisited the buffet for a refill.
    The poll also showed that the Germans were the ones having the longest lie-ins, with 31% admitting to regularly missing breakfast, compared with 25% of Britons.
    We already know how the Krauts are getting the towels there early (see other thread).

    Of course, that picture is obviously just a stock image, the bread should be fried, and there is no black pudding.

    And you call those puny fuckers mushrooms?

    Get rid of the beans and tomatoes, replace those potatoes with hash browns, slap some decent bacon on the plate, and that might actually be edible.

    Sounds like a barely edible McBreakfast recipe.

    That looks nauseating (though the sausages are probably pretty good).

    I find freshly squeezed OJ or BJ does the job
    The cholesterol soaked Ulster fry is the ultimate hangover cure

    At 73 years of age either of those plates of food could feed me for the whole day. Maybe when I was younger I could have eaten all of it for breakfast. Both sure look good.

    The mushrooms should look like this and be a minimum of 3" in diameter.

    I prefer the smaller button mushrooms, myself, but a valid comment as you're not a clueless merkin.

    Beans are a must, I put them on the black pudding, also a must. Must be served the old-fashioned way, with coffee.

    It's my treat to myself every weekend. Unfortunately, my weekend is Friday/Saturday.

    Breakfast like a King
    Lunch like a Prince
    Dine Like a Pauper



    Researchers have discovered the perfect reason to tuck into a full English breakfast, and the best news that dieters have had in years.
    For they found that starting the morning with a fatty meal may boost the metabolism for the rest of the day and prime the body to burn fat more efficiently.

    Researchers from the University of Alabama, in Birmingham, U.S., found that mice who consumed high-fat food in the morning and a lighter, lower-fat meal in the evening showed lowered incidence of metabolic syndrome - a precursor to diabetes and heart disease.

    Researchers have found that starting the morning with a fry-up may boost the metabolism for the rest of the day and prime the body to burn fat more efficiently

    The new research gives credence to the old adage of breakfasting like a king, lunching like a prince and dining like a pauper.

    It also adds to a groundswell of scientific opinion that the traditional English breakfast is one of the best starts to the day.
    'Get it right and it can be a healthy meal,' says Dr Carrie Ruxton, an independent registered nutritionist.
    'A grilled English breakfast with beans, tomatoes and a glass of juice will give you three of your five daily recommended fruit and vegetable portions, and the high protein content is increasingly recognised as a key factor in satisfying hunger.'
    There's evidence eggs are filling and can help you to eat fewer calories over the rest of the day.
    'You must watch the saturated fat and salt in sausages and bacon, though, as these nutrients are linked with raised cholesterol and high blood pressure,' says Dr Ruxton.
    Here, we illustrate the health benefits of the great English breakfast - and how to make it even healthier, but just as enjoyable!

    FRIED EGG


    PER AVERAGE: 107 calories, 8.3g fat.

    WHY IT'S HEALTHY: Rich in B vitamins essential for cells to make energy, an egg is also one of the few good sources of vitamin D - there's around 25 per cent of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) in one egg - required for strong bones and a healthy immune system.

    Eggs can help manage your weight - when two are eaten daily for breakfast, their high protein content contributes to an increased feeling of fullness compared with bagels of similar calorific value.

    Researchers used to believe that cholesterol in eggs could increase the risk of coronary heart disease, but this link has now been disproved.
    HOW TO COOK IT: Use just a brush of vegetable oil to keep calories from escalating.
    HEALTHIER STILL: Have a duck egg - it's higher still in vitamin D than a chicken's. And it has even more B vitamins, too.
    SAUSAGES


    PER SAUSAGE (57G UNCOOKED WEIGHT): Approx 120 calories, 8.3g fat.
    WHY THEY'RE HEALTHY: A protein-rich, B vitamin and iron-providing breakfast food that will help ensure you aren't hungry by mid-morning.
    The problem is that the content of saturated fat - the type that leads to clogged arteries - can be high, with over a third of a woman's daily recommended limit in a couple of bangers.

    Eat just one (choosing a product with more than 90 per cent meat) and you'll be OK.
    HOW TO COOK THEM: Grill rather than fry. And cook until well done to leach out more of the saturated fat, but not until burnt, as a chargrilled outside can mean that cancer-promoting substances lurk on the blackened skin.
    HEALTHIER STILL: Try a venison sausage. They've got a better balance of fats, with fewer dangerous saturates and more of the not-so-harmful polyunsaturated type.
    BACON


    PER 2 RASHERS TRIMMED, GRILLED BACK BACON: 107 calories, 6.2g fat.
    WHY IT'S HEALTHY: Surprisingly, a grilled rasher of lean back bacon with visible fat trimmed off has only just over 50 calories.
    And it's another appetite-curbing protein food with a quarter of the RDA of vitamin B12 - essential for healthy nerves - per rasher.
    HOW TO COOK IT: Grilled to whatever degree of done-ness you prefer.
    HEALTHIER STILL: Reduced salt rashers are the ones to go for, so you stand more chance of keeping within your daily recommended salt limit of 6 grams.
    MUSHROOMS

    PER 44G AVERAGE FRIED PORTION: 69 calories, 7.2g fat.
    WHY THEY'RE HEALTHY: With their high fibre content and ultra-low glycemic index (meaning they keep your blood sugar levels steady), mushrooms satisfy you even more than many other fruits and veg.
    They're a good source of B vitamins, potassium (which helps maintain healthy blood pressure) and selenium, an important antioxidant for the immune system.

    Fourteen baby buttons or one large portobello mushroom count as one vegetable portion.
    HOW TO COOK THEM: Fry in a little rapeseed oil or olive oil; grilled is even better.
    HEALTHIER STILL: Choose brown-topped chestnut mushrooms, with marginally more antioxidant capacity than white button mushrooms.

    Antioxidants in food contribute to the dietary armoury that protects against heart disease and cancer.
    BAKED BEANS


    PER 100G PORTION: 86 calories, 0.5g fat.
    WHY THEY'RE HEALTHY: Beans count as one of your daily veg servings and are a great source of soluble fibre that helps to lower cholesterol and keep your digestive system regular.

    A small 100g portion (quarter of a can) provides over 10 per cent of the RDA of folic acid, a vitamin that's important for the health of red blood cells as well as a healthy pregnancy.
    HOW TO COOK THEM: Either in a saucepan or the microwave, although you should avoid the temptation to slip in a knob of butter.
    HEALTHIER STILL: Buy the reduced salt and sugar variety, with 0.5g salt per 100g compared with 0.8g per 100g in the standard variety.
    TOMATOES


    PER 1 MEDIUM: 42 calories, 0.8g fat.
    WHY THEY'RE HEALTHY: Tomatoes are one of the top five food sources of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, potassium and fibre.
    They're also an excellent source of plant chemicals thought to be health-protective, including lycopene - which lends tomatoes their red colour and is a powerful antioxidant.

    Tomatoes are linked with lower risk of cardiovascular disease and with reduced risk of some cancers, too.
    HOW TO COOK THEM: Grilling improves the nutritional quality of tomatoes as it breaks down the tomato cell walls, allowing lycopene to escape and increasing its availability for absorption by the body.
    HEALTHIER STILL: Drizzle with a little oil before you grill - it increases the absorption of lycopene.
    BLACK PUDDING


    PER 30G SLICE: 75 calories, 4.5g fat.
    WHY IT'S HEALTHY: With three times more iron than grilled rump steak, a judicious serving could be just what you need to prevent anaemia, with symptoms of lethargy, poor concentration and pale skin.

    But it is high in salt and saturated fat, which is why it's advisable to keep portions small.
    HOW TO COOK IT: Dry-frying it is the only way to keep calorie levels anywhere near reasonable.
    HEALTHIER STILL: You could swap black pudding for grilled kidneys with an equally high iron content, but much less saturated fat and a calorie content around 40 per cent lower.

    FRIED BREAD


    PER HALF-SLICE: 71 calories, 4.5g fat.
    WHY IT'S HEALTHY: Cooked in vegetable oil, fried bread is a much more innocuous choice than it used to be when it was more usually cooked in lard or dripping.
    HOW TO COOK IT: Fry in sunflower oil and half a slice provides over half of the 3-4mg of vitamin E recommended daily.

    Vitamin E is an antioxidant and is important for the immune system. Make sure the oil is hot before adding the bread to get crisp, not too greasy, fried bread.
    HEALTHIER STILL: It's still healthier, and kinder to the waistline, to eat a slice of high-fibre wholemeal toast spread with a low-fat sunflower or olive spread.

    HOW DO OTHER BREAKFASTS COMPARE?

    Wholegrain is the best choice of cereal - bran flakes, Weetabix and Shredded Wheat are good examples

    CEREAL


    Wholegrain is the best choice - bran flakes, Weetabix and Shredded Wheat are good examples.

    It's good to avoid sugary cereals (more than 15g sugar per 100g), as their higher glycemic index (GI) will tend to make your blood sugar rise and then plummet again quickly, leaving you hungry.

    Add plenty of milk and a sliced apple to lower the GI and make a more sustaining breakfast.
    BIO YOGHURT AND FRUIT


    Providing protein, carbohydrate and good bacteria, this combination gives relatively long-lasting energy and provides one of the two-to-three bone-building dairy portions we're recommended to consume daily.
    Team with berries for enhanced nutritional value - blue-black fruits are packed with anthocyanin antioxidants that help keep arteries healthy.

    PORRIDGE

    Porridge oats are low GI and digested slowly, giving you longer-lasting energy than many other high-carbohydrate options.
    Adding a tablespoon of dried fruit makes this breakfast count as a fruit portion. Oats contain a soluble fibre fraction that helps to lower cholesterol.

    TOAST

    Seeded or grainy breads have the lowest GI and therefore the best stomach-filling power, because of the fact they take longer to digest. ]
    Top with an unsaturated spread and add protein-rich peanut butter for increased hunger-curbing power.

    P.S. THE BEST JUICE...


    Any 150ml glass will count as a fruit portion, so choose the type you like best.

    Orange is richest in vitamin C, whereas apple - which is fructose rich - is lower GI and therefore more filling

    I would go along with that.

    But coffee?

    It has to be tea, out of a teapot with a patina an inch thick.
