In Part Two of Healthy & Easy Cooking for One on the Two-Day 5:2 Diet, we'll take a look at Breakfast, often described as the most important meal of the day.

To Breakfast or not on the Two-Day 5:2 Diet?  

If you think about the word Breakfast, there is a clue that lies within. It’s the meal with which you break-fast. When we wake up in the morning, breakfast can help provide a great foundation for a good day ahead. 

Research has shown that breakfast:
  • can help us be more active during the day 
  • keep us feeling full and much less likely to snack until lunch time.

Both of the above remain true, even on the two fasting-diet-days per week on the 5:2 Diet.  However it is likely that on those days you will want to keep your breakfast to around the 100-calorie mark
Smoothies and fruit breakfasts naturally lend themselves to quick and easy low calorie solo breakfast options, but with careful choices you can also enjoy a hot breakfast for 1 on your fast day, such as these tasty Creamy Tomatoes on Toast as only 106 calories!
