A delicious and wholesome breakfast is the best way to start your day. Not only does it put you in a good mood, but it also gives you a nice energy boost to deal with your tasks and errands. It seems that Rubina Dilaik also understands the merits of a satisfying breakfast. She shared a short clip of her Monday morning meal on her Instagram stories and inspired us to make healthier choices. What first stood out on her plate were long pieces of refreshing avocado. We also spotted two toasted sandwiches with a green filling – whether it was hari chutney or some other stuffing we can’t say for sure. There was also a serving of what looked to be nutritious crackers with a hummus-like dip garnished with pomegranate seeds. Beside the plate was a mug of a hot beverage, rounding off the meal perfectly! “Healthy yummy breakfast” read the text on the video, along with a drooling emoji. Here’s a screengrab:
