Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day but it is usually when I feel the least like eating. Or have the least amount of time. But by keeping some good stuff around, I have gotten much better about having something healthy instead of popping a bag of popcorn after I get to work!
All-Bran flakes with organic fat free milk and fruit (a banana or a handful of raisins) and a little Splenda for sweetner (All-Bran is NOT sweet on it’s own)
A slice of whole grain toast spread with an organic nut butter (peanut, cashew or toasted almond). You can add a little no sugar added jam or a bit of honey for sweetner. Wheat germ is a good nutritious addition as well!
A banana smeared with one of the aforementioned nut butters.
Whole grain crackers, cheese (I like sharp cheddar or smoked gouda) and a piece of fruit.
A whole grain english muffin with an egg and a slice of ham (Healthy McMuffin!)
Either cottage cheese or low sugar yogurt with a piece of fresh fruit (but not mixed together…I’ve never liked the cottage cheese mixed with fruit thing that other people adore!)
A slice of banana bread
Weekend Breakfasts (usually a combo of these for a family breakfast):
Whole grain pancakes (Hodgson’s Mill makes a mix) with sugar-free syrup.
Whole wheat biscuits (next to the pop the can and bake regular biscuits) with no sugar added jam or a schmear of honey
Sugar free cinnamon rolls (next to the regular pop the can and bake cinnamon rolls)
Scrambled eggs with cheese
Turkey bacon (cooked on the George Forman grill)
The Healthy McMuffin mentioned above is popular on the weekends too!
