A Brief History of Breakfast

A Brief History of Breakfast

According to Merriam-Webster's online dictionary, the word "breakfast" dates back to the 15th century and has a primary definition of "the first meal of the day especially when taken in the morning."  Most of us think of breakfast as exactly the sum of the word's parts — breaking the fast which has occured since one's last meal before retiring for the night.  We wake up in the morning, having fasted during sleep.

The meal of breakfast itself has evolved over the centuries.  During pioneer days, this morning meal was simple and relield heavily on corn meal.  Early Americans would have hoecakes, johnnycakes, corn pone, and other similar fare.  As Americans moved into the Victorian era, they typically had more money and were able to add to the simple pioneer breakfast.  They could enjoy healthier breakfasts that included fruits, vegetables, dairy, and juices unavailable to their pioneer predecessors.

Many of us have come to associate oatmeal with the modern-day healthy breakfast.  It is well-known for reducing cholesterol and for having lots of good-for-you nutrients, including fiber and whole grains.  As you can see from our 8 great healthy breakfast recipes, oatmeal isn't the only way to get a healthy start to your day.  Try one of our favorites:
