Know by many different names, cassava is a good option to have in the morning. The preparation couldn't be easier, peel if off, remove the skin and pink layer underneath it, boil in plenty of salted water until soft. Slightly sweet and very creamy, it won't need any anything other than a dollop of butter. However, it goes well with eggs, meats or cheese, for the vegetarians.

Skipping breakfast is considered a sin by family. The first meal is sacred. It is a must and even if it is simple, it should be enjoyed at the table for a good start. If possible, one should even read the morning paper to get the latest news.
