10 winter breakfasts, sweet and savory, good and healthy

A healthy breakfast is essential to face the cold season. This is why we advise you to abandon biscuits, croissants and rusks to try ours winter breakfasts. We offer both sweet and savory options, and all with a healthy focus. Because a butter croissant is a joy for the palate to indulge in every now and then, but unfortunately it is not balanced from a nutritional point of view.

Why is it important to have breakfast?

With breakfast we break the night fast and we activate the metabolism. Furthermore, with the right breakfast, we avoid sudden attacks of hunger during the morning. If we don’t eat adequately first thing in the morning, we risk slowing down our metabolism and not having enough energy to face daily challenges.

How should a healthy breakfast be made?

There perfect breakfast exists. It is the one composed of:

  • a source of carbohydrates: which can be oat flakes, bread or flours (oats or wholemeal, for example);
  • a source of protein: eggs, Greek yogurt, low-fat cheeses;
  • a source of good fats: dried fruit, sugar-free dried fruit cream, extra virgin olive oil, avocado, but also dark chocolate, minimum 70%;
  • a source of vitamins and mineral salts: fruit or vegetables.

One of these nutrients must be present at every breakfast. Only in this way will we be able to have the energy necessary to face the day healthy and without feeling weighed down. But please note: all different types of nutrients must be alternated. No to the same breakfast every day.

Rush: a great enemy

Breakfast represents 20-25% of our daily energy needs, so it deserves the right amount of time to be prepared and enjoyed. Are you always in a hurry? Don’t worry: many of the breakfasts we offer can be also prepare the night before. This is the case of protein crêpes, protein pancakes, light savory pies, rice and milk and porridge.

Valentine’s Day at the home of Ernst and Frau Knam: the savory recipe – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

What is your place of heart?
TO. «As a Venetian from the Cannaregio district, I always recommend the Serenissima: it is an easily reachable destination. Then in Venice, the view at sunset from the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice for me is one of the most beautiful in the city.”

How do you create the right atmosphere?
AND. «For a dinner, focus on a surprise detail like mine cocoa candles. Soft lights, a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the table, and then a short and light menu, easy to prepare. A bubble served strictly in the cup. Finish with a dessert and two chocolates. To then move to the sofa, full but still light…”.

Frau Knam, or Alessandra Mion, and Ernst Knam.

The recipe for a lasting love like yours?
AND. «We also argue and in those cases we evoke Cristina: “But that day our friend couldn’t mind her own business?”. Jokes aside, the secret is to listen and not just talk and then take a step back. The butterflies go away, let’s cultivate love with small gestures every day. My parents, together for 50 years, are an example to me.”
TO. «Speaking of small gestures, I find that too giving just a single flower is a profound gesture. The flower is ephemeral, but it is also something to take care of. The best thing is finding it when you least expect it. In the office at the beginning of the week, far from a birthday. It helps overcome the misunderstandings that everyone faces.”
