What foods do students eat for breakfast

Students eating breakfast is an important part of the day and without it, you cannot function well. More like it, you’ll find yourself asleep during lectures. As students, you might not have a lot of cash or time to whip up a good meal.

Its the same for the office workers who might not have time to eat breakfast or might not have the money to buy something on the way. And no our meals do not include McDonald’s as that is very unhealthy. Nor do they include Starbucks

Eating breakfast helps you to lose weight and keep it off for a long time.

So we asked some of the students and here is what they say:

Katherine: I do love my cereals and milk as I believe calcium is a good thing and does not make you fat. It is good for your bones. You can buy a 2L bottle of milk for about $4-$5 at the supermarket. Right now I am loving Freedom foods cereals as they have lots of iron and protein.

Oh I also love oats in the morning as they are full of fiber

You can also check out my Instagram for all the breakfast ideas.

Oh and I enjoy a good cup of tea to keep me hydrated in the morning. I do not have to rush anywhere!

I love going to the Queen Victoria Markets and eating all the different foods and coffee that they have.

Diana: I love my Herbalife shakes and you’ll find me making a smoothie in the morning as I generally don’t have much time for breakfast. I’ll usually put whatever fruits I have at home in there. Banana is usually a great idea.

Max: I sleep late so I usually have brunch of eggs and bacon with toast at home. I usually buy the eggs and bacon when they are on special or if I have time I will visit the markets on a Saturday

Akira: I love my Herbalife shakes in the morning. Because I am a cleaner at night, I sleep until very late in the morning.

And I also love other foods. I can eat anything from Nasi Lemak to a Japanese breakfast with rice.

Claudia: I love Chinese and Japanese breakfasts as they are full of rice and portion sizes. Here we can buy everything to make these breakfasts from the market! And the fish is very fresh at the market.

Olivia Springs cafe

This is a down to earth cafe in Moonee Ponds. And it is pretty rare to find a health food cafe here. They had been open for three months now.

Here they serve breakfast and lunch as well as Vietnamese classics. All without meat of course, but instead mock meat. They have BLT with mock meat. And because it is a vegetarian place there are no egg dishes.

The music is calming and relaxing- it is just like what I hear during a meditation class.

The service was friendly and down to earth. But a bit slow. And there are no toilets here- you have to go across the road to the bus terminal where they are.

Since everything is cheap, they are a cash only place. All the food is under $15 and they make their own sweets.

Seeing as I’m trying a high fiber diet and am on the Sugar-free September, I went for a homemade orange juice and scrambled tofu on toast with avocado. Fans of Here’s the veg will like this place. The Annoyed thyroid will also like this joint as it is right up their alleyway.

The juice was freshly squeezed and was not too sweet.

The scrambled tofu with turmeric was a little bit spicy but I enjoyed the spicy kick. I made a mess of it- I’m sorry.  Fans of Consider the Sauce will love this dish. The bread was from Bakers delight across the road.

At least this place fares better than the place next door which I have to say looks a little bit old and outdated. Oh, and they sell junk food which I’m not a fan of.

Where they are at: 637 Mt Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds
