The "breakfast" - perhaps one of the most controversial meal of the day. Over the years, fitness gurus have advised us from a range of it being the most important meal of the day to it being the meal one should skip (or, at the very least, that one should not eat for the first hour and then eat only protein).

It has created it's own "cuisine" which is at times so popular, there are places that offer all day breakfast.
