I always thought that"" English healthy breakfast" is a bowl of oatmeal ,whole wheat toast  with a naturall strawberry jam,a cup of tea and if you an egg-lover,you can have a boiled variety. That what i have every morning and call  it healthy english breakfast. yummy

Oats are OK, but many people really miss a hearty 'Full English' if they are trying to eat healthier. I spoke with my local cafe owner and he liked the idea in theory but didn't know how to follow it up in practice. Already this forum has replaced fried egg with poached, streaky bacon with grilled lean gammon and the mushroom aren't swimming in oil. Then things got sidetracked.

Re: IS A HEALTHY FULL ENGLISH BREAKFAST POSSIBLE?

I think "healthy" has to do with balance, not doing away with everything fatty (or sugary or salty, for that matter) You can reduce the amount of fat by grilling or dry frying, but in my opinion, a poached egg and a fried egg are two very different things.

If you're worried you had too much for breakfast, why not balance it out with the other meals you have during the day?

Agreed fully on the not doing away with everything and having a healthy balance of fats, sugars etc which is why I disagreed with those saying have cerial instead. I don't think fried egg and poached aren't so massively different when looking for a healthy 'Full English'. Tinned tomatoes are already served in some cafes. Also fresh toms can be grilled anyway. I personally hate brown bread but if toasted and hidden under my egg it could sneak by. wink
