sesame bagel and cream cheese. This not-very-rich-in-nutrients combo is
what I've been having for breakfast every morning for about 4 months
now. I don't need a nutritionist to tell me this isn't the best way to
start my day; but it is the easiest, tastiest, and most filling option I
have. Who has time for breakfast in the morning?
A long time ago, I was way more creative with my breakfasts. Here's some of my all-time favorites that I should probably get back to--and fast!
Waffle & Cottage Cheese This is one of the tastiest morning treats. Try whole grain waffles with a 4oz container of low-fat cottage cheese, and blueberries. Sprinkle a tablespoon of almonds on there for added protein.
Peanut Butter, Honey, and Banana Two slices of whole grain bread (the kind with the added fiber), honey, half a banana sliced up and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Very filling.
McMuffin One egg, one slice of low fat cheese, one whole grain english
muffin. A side of fruit, like strawberries or melon. (If I have time, a
scrambled egg plus spinach or peppers makes this even healthier and
Egg & Spinach Pie Mix egg beaters (or something similar), feta cheese, spinach, chopped peppers and diced ham and pour into a baking dish that was sprayed with olive oil (or PAM). Bake till cooked through. Eat all week long with a slice of whole grain toast, or an english muffin.
What's your typical breakfast like?
