Good Breakfast

Start the day with an energy-laden breakfast and you'll be better able to cope. There are many ways to do it: add cottage cheese to scrambled eggs or melt a cheese slice on toast. If you're having poached egg on toast, melt Swiss cheese over that and serve with a butter-grilled pineapple ring.
