Making Healthy Breakfast Choices
The following are examples of possible breakfast choices:
Poor breakfast choices:
Sugary cereal with milk
Better breakfast choices:
Muffin with extra fiber
Coffee with milk and sugar
Whole-grain pancakes with a little syrup
Best breakfast choices:
Regular or egg-white omelet with added beans or veggies
Fruit with yogurt, and coffee with milk or soymilk
Whole-grain toast topped with unsweetened applesauce and fresh fruit
Oatmeal or other hot-cooked grain cereal with added fruit and nuts
*Importantly noted, skipping meals is what we want to stay away from, so worse case scenario, a poor breakfast choice is a great choice compared to skipping breakfast.
Let's aim, let's have a goal of making the best healthy breakfast choices!
