Take a Crack at it

Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper is the age-old mantra for a healthy diet. As a chef, this is as far away from being a possibility for me as is a social life that is worthy of mention.
My waking hours are 12 noon to 4 am.

When I'm just out of bed with my stomach rumbling to break its ten-hour ordeal of a fast, I can seldom find a restaurant or cafe that still serves breakfast. Mumbai, to my dismay, still doesn't have a decent diner-style establishment that serves breakfast 24X7.  So I skip eating altogether. It's an unhealthy habit but I'd rather not eat anything than be forcefully subjected to eating a random mid-day sandwich or a heavy thali as my first bite.

Nevertheless, I love breakfast.
