Espresso coffee and croissant at the bar: this is the typical Italian breakfast

Jun 02, 2021Carmine Borriello

Typically breakfast for Italians represents an important ritual, the morning is conceived as the most pleasant moment of the day, a real serene awakening of the mind and body.

The Italian breakfast is promoted with flying colors by nutritionists from all over the world, in fact unlike the classic Anglo-Saxon, American and German breakfast, which are famous for the typical eggs accompanied by bacon, a bomb of saturated fats taken in the morning in a very delicate time of day. The Italian breakfast is exactly the opposite, commonly sweet, but it can also be salty, it is much more balanced and genuine.

In the morning, Italians take at least 20% of their daily needs, thanks to the right mix of carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and sugars, a real boost of energy, ideal for facing the day at the best of one's resources.

Let's see in detail what are the most loved choices by Italians:

  1. Espresso or cappuccino, to wake up in the morning;
  2. Orange juice or fruit juice, the right sweetness to accompany breakfast;
  3. Croissant or brioche, for a balanced intake of carbohydrates;
  4. Rusks with fruit jam, the classic combination is bread with butter and jam, an excellent energy boost;
  5. Milk and cereals, the timeless breakfast of champions;
  6. Milk and biscuits, an alternative to cereals for the sweet tooth;
  7. Yogurt and dried or seasonal fruit, for those who want to keep fit without giving up the pleasure of eating;
  8. Toast with ham, for savory lovers even in the morning.
