Breakfast is the most
important meal of the day. It’s interesting to find out how completely
different kinds of food are served up in the morning depending on the country
and the culture. For some people, breakfast should be akin to a full meal; for
others, it’s little more than a light snack.
Over the course of 11 days, we
at Bright Side tried 11 different breakfasts eaten by people in various
countries. Each day, they were prepared by our wonderful inhouse chefs. As it
turned out, we enjoyed the Egyptian and Israeli ones the most. Which ones have
you tried?

What we liked: A filling and
tasty breakfast. The large number of proteins provide energy for a long time.

What we didn’t like: There’s a
lot of fried food here. The combination of beans, mushrooms, and fried bacon is
not easy on the stomach. This amount of food is more suited to lunch.

What we liked: The bread,
vegetables, and dairy products were filling, but not too much.

What we didn’t like: A
breakfast made up of small snacks is not quite as good as hot food.

What we liked: A very filling
and very healthy breakfast. The various little dishes provide you with plenty
of vitamins and nutrients. A great way to start a busy day.

What we didn’t like: It’s hard
to find any faults with this breakfast, other than that it takes a long time to

What we liked: It’s simple,
quick, and very tasty.

What we didn’t like: This is a
small breakfast, and we were left still feeling hungry. It’s also not very

What we liked: A breakfast
that will be familiar to many — one that’s tasty, filling, and packed with
carbohydrates and protein.

for breakfast is an acquired taste.

What we liked: An ideal quick
breakfast if you’re late for work.

What we didn’t like: A very
light breakfast that will leave you feeling hungry.

What we liked: A very filling

What we didn’t like: This was
the heaviest breakfast of all, which not everyone will be able to eat entirely
without feeling overfull. It works best when you eat only certain elements
rather than the whole thing.

What we liked: It’s sweet and
very filling.

What we didn’t like: It’s too
sweet and too filling. We were left feeling bloated, but this quickly turned
into hunger.

What we liked: It’s very

What we didn’t like: There
wasn’t enough of it.

What we liked: Shakshouka is
not just a dish of fried eggs with tomatoes. It has a very striking taste as a
result of the ripe tomatoes, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and spices. A
surprisingly tasty breakfast.

What we didn’t like: We liked

What we liked: This is a very
balanced breakfast that contains carbohydrates, vegetable proteins, and dairy
products. It all combines together perfectly.

What we didn’t like: For those
who like meat, it’s not the best choice.
