Brekkie’s the much-needed fuel to keep you energised and productive all day long. But, what does one resort to on days the alarm has been left on snooze repeatedly? Is there a code to crack in order to not let that guilt of consuming a greasy snack sweep over you? What are Bengalureans including as their go-to in their dabba, in the midst of the daily morning hustle? We find out...

Magic in my hands: Brunda Gowda, a 27-year-old fashion designer believes the secret lies in planning your meals in advance and making do with raw staples. “A thick spread of peanut butter on a slice of whole wheat brown bread never disappoints. Top it with half a banana, two strawberries and blue berry and you have a powerful meal ready! And, all it takes is 5 minutes — I’ve timed it! I’ve also realised this recipe helps me feel fuller and active for longer.”

South Indie snacks with a twist: Vouching by how important is it to not go overboard by stuffing yourself; Dheeraj Rao, a programming producer, adds, “I usually eat two breakfasts. One within half an hour on waking up because, my stomach has been empty for eight hours. Post that, after two hours I don't stuff myself. Usually it is two whole eggs and two brown bread slices with peanut butter which is my first meal. And my second meal usually contains two idlis or any south Indian breakfast item because they are usually packed with carbs – stuff my system needs to keep going.” Entrepeneur Neetha Bhoopalam believes in putting extra efforts to rustle up a great meal to start the day with. "I love experimenting with different greens. So, mornings usually comprise gulping down an aromatic herbal juice, followed by  steamed multigrain cakes with brahmi chutney. I believe a well prepared Indian meal is all one needs to get fueled up for the day ahead. I also believe in eating smaller portions and eating slowly."

Customisation for the win: So, it all comes down to eating right for breakfast, 25-year-old  Netpreneur Narsepalli Shirish adds,  “Dosa with peanut butter chutney is balanced and I believe it's important to customise your meals with superfoods that work for you. It's also very easy to make. I usually add a lot of whole grains. Ensure you prepare the batter overnight and add dollops of nutrition into it! That's the trick.”
