Whether or not breakfast is the most important meal of the day is still up for debate, but medical professionals at John Hopkins Medicine confirm that having that early meal does have its benefits. Eating breakfast can improve heart health and digestion as well as bone strength. Research even shows that those who skip breakfast tend to have higher cholesterol levels. High cholesterol is a contributing risk factor for heart disease – one of the top causes of mortality in the Black community. So finding breakfast recipes you love isn’t just yummy — it’s good for you.

Even though finding the will to eat breakfast first thing in the morning isn’t always easy, Americans do love their breakfast food. In fact, they’ll eat it all day long. A poll conducted by Harris Poll and commissioned by General Mills found that 79 percent of Americans eat breakfast foods outside of regular breakfast hours. A really good breakfast dish is something that cannot be ignored, and finding one that gets your mouth watering could help you get out of bed. Here are breakfast dishes from Black chefs that just might make you eat endless breakfast food whether you’re a morning person or not.
