Almost everyone likes breakfast, especially those that can not endure the over night deprivation of food.
Breakfast is a self explanatory word; break the fast – “BreakFast,” keep away from food (fast) and eat after a period of time (break).
“Almost everyone likes breakfast, especially those that can not endure the over night deprivation of food.”
Food experts and nutritionists term Breakfast as the food eaten in the morning, Lunch – Afternoon and Dinner or Supper for night meals.
The type of meals we eat for breakfast is important, a well known food quote states that, “We are what we eat,” If we eat a wrong meal, it will definitely have a negative impact on our health for that day. A man that consumes Eba and Egusi soup as breakfast can not have a similar mental ability with one who ate Bread and Tea or even Rice and Stew.
“If we eat a wrong meal, it will definitely have a negative impact on our health for that day.”
Below are some local Food wey good for break fast
(Some local food good for breakfast)
majorly Nigerian foods
- Rice and Stew
- Rice and Beans
- Rice and Vegetable
- Rice and fried Plantain
- Rice and Salad
Hence Rice is Good for Break fast
- Bread and Tea
- Bread and Stew
- Bread and Egg
- Bread and Beans
- Bread and Pap
- Custard with milk and bread or biscuit
- Oat meal with milk
A man that consumes Eba and Egusi soup as break fast can not have a similar mental ability with one who ate Bread and Tea or even Rice and Stew.
Bread is a good breakfast as well
Beans is a healthy choice as well.
According to http://www.Authoritynutrition.com
“BREAKFAST HAS THE POTENTIAL TO SET YOU UP FOR A DAY OF GREAT ENERGY LEVELS, STABLE BLOOD SUGAR AND CONTROL OVER YOUR APPETITE AND WEIGHT.”
“ON THE OTHER HAND, MAKING A POOR CHOICE AT BREAKFAST CAN LEAVE YOU HUNGRY AND STRUGGLING TO GET THROUGH THE REST OF THE DAY.”
IT CAN ALSO INCREASE YOUR RISK OF DEVELOPING HEALTH PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE.”
“IF YOU’RE GOING TO EAT BREAKFAST, MAKE IT ONE THAT CONTAINS PROTEIN, HEALTHY FAT AND FIBER FROM UNPROCESSED WHOLE FOODS.”

🙂 How was your experience on the first day you tried cooking?
Trying things for the first time can be very tough at times, especially when it deals with an activity that consists of several steps like cooking.
🙂 I tried my little Sis. (Esther) Yesterday (night), I say make she cook noodles (4pcs) for us to chop, 😀 she surprise.
Almost 30mins gone and noodles never still done 😀 , “Esther! What’s up? Your noodles never done?”, I said.
“Trying things for the first time can be very tough at times, especially when it deals with an activity that consists of several steps like cooking.”
“I’m waiting for the water to get dried”, she replied. In between the cooking, she had come to me asking; “Bro. Paul, please can I add the seasoning immediately?”, hmm. . . 😀 “I don’t know, you’re the one in charge, cook it in your style, anyhow it comes out we shall eat”, I replied. I detailed her not to make it dry because the noodles soupy style was one of my favorites.
At last Esther was through.
The noodles was ready, I had a taste, dished it and we ate.
My Verdicts on Esther’s first independent cooking (without supervision):
The noodles was;
- cooked not half done
- dry; against my soupy style demand
- having a nice taste but almost over seasoned (almost).
- almost over cooked (quite soft)
She gave a good try and 🙂 I rated her 52%
Weldone! Esthy, you can do better, I know, Yes! You! Can! 😉
The Bottom Line:
There’s a saying I emulate, “Practice makes perfect”, the more we do things, the better we become at it; our first trial might not be perfect but when the practice continues we can work towards perfection by learning from others, our errors and improving our performance.
“The more we do things, the better we become at it
In the comment box below you can drop your own first experience of cooking (how it went; please make it short), I’ll drop mine (personal) as well; watch out for it, really amusing and interesting, some how worse than my sister’s. 😀

The “wife not cook” campaign sounds funny to me because those who came up with it must have gone through years of painful silence. cooking or being expected to cook has been seen to be burdensome, especially when he returns and the food isn’t ready; some men need to mind and watch their actions during such moments, yes we know that “an hungry man is an angry man” but remember that she is your love, you got married to take care of her and not to bully.
Wives! Wives! Wive!, How many times did I type Wives!? trice or four times, please listen attentively, Husbands are meant to take care of their wives and vice-versa, He is the head of the home, you don’t expect him to cook, but that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t assist you neither does it warrant him to be harsh when you don’t, you should take care of him and understand one another.
Finally, note that he can never call you a cook, if he can’t then why call yourself. We all have our duties at home, what if I, as a male child under my parents, raise a campaign like #childnotmaid or #childnotservant?, how would my parents feel?
Let’s think about this. Peace.

Lets see the Genius!
Rice is one of the most common food in my country Nigeria, it can be eaten at any time of the day; as break-fast, launch or dinner.
Rice is commonly and best eaten with Stew, it can also be prepared in a mixed form [jollof rice].
Beans, Salad, fried or boiled Plantain, Vegetable soup, Moin moin and many other foods can also be eaten with rice.
I tried charging some of my course mates to come here and filling in the procedures for making Eba; they all claimed that making it wasn’t a good challenge since Eba is very common and almost everyone in Nigeria understand the steps and principles for making it.
Recipes for making Eba:
Garri and Water
Sift the garri (this isn’t common to everyone)
Set the Turning stick and bowl
Boil the water with a kettle or electric jug
Pour the boiling water, into the bowl and dilute with a very little cold water
Pour enough of the garri into the hot water in the bowl
Sift off the water, garri shaft on the surface and stir immediately from side to side.
I declare my shop open; in the name of The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. AMEN
¤ Main menu

NB: PLEASE TRY TO MAKE YOUR ORDER BEFORE 11AM TO GET IT ON THE SAME DAY.
Everyone’s style of preparing it is different…
¤ some cover it to absorb the hot water
¤ others turn immediately
¤ some dilute the hot water, while some don’t
¤ some sift the shaft after pouring the garri, while others don’t
but at the end we all eat it and the Eba ends up it the stomach, goes through digestion process and so on…
But you won’t enjoy a badly made Eba;
¤ with too much lumps (Yoruba calls it koko while in Kalabari it’s “Ingboli”)
¤ made excessively soft
¤ Too hard
¤ Still having the raw taste of garri
¤ not well mixed.
My Verdict: Make your eba properly to enjoy it and don’t be in a haste because every food has an end product in the stomach, hence prepare it well.
Thanks for reading…
Beans, onions, pepper, tomatoes, vegetable oil, palm oil (optional), seasoning cubes, salt, curry and crayfish (optional).
- Pick out the beans from the shaft
- Blend pepper and crayfish seperately
- Slice the tomatoes and onions
Step 1: Boil the beans till it gets soft (not too soft; but soft)
Step 2: when soft add some onions
and salt, allow to boil for 2-3minutes
Steps 3: Keep away the beans and put a fry pan to dry, add some red oil (allow to fry for 15 seconds) and vegetable oil to the fry pan and allow the oil to heat up
Step 4: When the oil is hot add onions, tomatoes and peper, allow this to fry very well
Step 5: Once the water content in it starts getting dried add curry then stir.
Step 6: Add crayfish, seasoning cubes and some little salt then stir
Step 7: Return the beans, pour all the contents (peper, onions, tomatoes mixture) of the fry pan into it and stir well
Step 8: Have a taste and add some seasoning cubes or salt if needed
Step 9: Allow to heat up very well and stir continuously to avoid burning the beans for 10 – 15 minutes.
Step 10: 🙂 wetin remain? 😀

Kitchen Safety Tip #1: Beware Of Grease Fire (Fire Caused By Oil )
“Never put oil on the fire and walk away, monitor it; if over heated, it could lead to fire outbreak.”
What you should know on Fire Outbreak Caused by Oil:
Fire caused by oil is referred to as grease fire, it occurs when oil reaches a particular temperature under heat. This depends on the type of oil used, every oil has a point of causing fire (flashpoint), according to culinarylore.com fire outbreak will automatically occour when the temperature of any oil reaches 400-435 degree Celsius (750 – 815 degree Fahrenheit).
How to Quench Grease Fire (Fire Caused by Oil)
- Use a dry powder, foam or carbon dioxide fire extinguisher, immediately.
- Try to turn off the fuel source immediately (stove, gas cooker or any cooking device used).
- If the fire has gone round the kitchen; close the doors and windows as you quench, this will reduce breeze or oxygen that spreads the fire, also ensure your fans are off.
- Be! sensitive!, once you notice the fire getting out of control, call the fire service, call neighbours to assist, never wait till it gets out of hand before doing this.
WARNING!: Never use water to quench a grease fire, it will worsen it
Remember this for Your Safety
Cooking is an activity that requires your total attension, a little diversion can lead to great disaster (not our portion, In Jesus name), hence we should be alert.

Introducing My Kitchen Safety Tips Post
🙂 I’m glad to inform you that I’ll be sharing some kitchen safety tips, this is to fulfil part of the promises I made when Launching the blog. All I need in return is; you sharing it with your friends, colleagues and family. Thanks!
Remember this for Safety:
“Safety first, never sacrifice your life or health for any kitchen activity or perishable food.” When I was learning carpentry at my school’s (Lagos State Polytechnic) entrepreneusship centre, Mr Felix (the instructor) always yelled at me, “Paul! Paul! Safety! first!,” by then I had already struck the hammer or used the saw on my fingers, ouch! 😀 , he taught us various methods of observing safety. Safety is very important in every field
Note on the First Kitchen Safety Tip :
The first kitchen safety tip comes up shortly, watch out, remember to share and comment on it, thanks! 🙂
Good Morning to You!

HE IS OUR PROVIDER, GLORY BE TO GOD FOR THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY, AMEN
😦 “Kitchen work is more stressful, when you have no one assisting you.“
“We all have our own style of cooking.”
“All the Labour of man is for his mouth, and yet his appetite is not filled.”
Ecclesiastes 6:7 KJV
“All the work wey man dey do, na for in mouth, but in bele no dey full”

Having a good weight is part of your health status, because it shows the level of care you have given to your body. If you spend the whole day under stress, eat a wrong diet or fall ill frequently, you might end up loosing a whole lot of weight.
Some ways in which you can get fat or add more weight
1. Set a Plan
You might ask, What’s the plan for? In everything you wish to achieve, you need a plan, and adding weight, or getting fat is not left out. Check your present weight and set a goal, this helps you determine the level of progress made.
2. Increase the number of times you eat
To get fat, you have to eat well, 3 times a day meal might not be a enough, try increasing to 4 or 5 times, according to Livestrong.com weight gain is all about consuming more calories than you burn for energy, which makes your body to store the excess as body fat. Livestrong also stated that the best foods for weight gain are calorie dense, meaning, they contain a relatively large number of calories with little bulk; nut, peanut butter, whole wheat, thick beans soup, avocado, sardines, soya beans, fish and dairy product like cheese fall under this category, because dairy and meats are high in saturated fat, which can cause heart disease, you should choose a low fat version. You need fruits and vegetables for good nutrition, though they do not have much calories, bananas, pineapples, potatoes and corn have a good level of calorie for your body.
3. Avoid Stress and Energy Sapping Activities
Stress mainly affects the mind, managing issues that causes this can help you add weight, how? Your mind and brain works together, if you’re not mentally settled and disturbed by situations around, this will tell on your weight. Energy sapping activities like lifting or moving heavy objects, and trecking long distances can reduce your weight, hence try to avoid it.
4. Get Adequate Sleep
Sleeping helps your nerves to relax, this reduces stress and helps you add more weight. have you ever checked the mirror after a 3 hours afternoon nap? You need a good sleep to add more weight.
5. Avoid getting frequently Ill
When you get ill, your body loses weight, especially when you keep throwing up or stooling. Most illness causes loss of appetite and this will deprive you of food that will add to your weight.
NB. Please note:
The tips stated above are experience I’ve personally encountered, coupled with some little online research, if your doctor has given you directions on your diet, meals you should and shouldn’t take; Please ensure you stick to it. It is also advisable that you seek a doctors go ahead, before embarking on a weight adding scheme. As you add more weight try to balance it up with some fitness exercise, this helps your body to make good use of the fat gain.
