January 24, 2012 § Leave a comment
Alright, well I hope you didn’t skip breakfast waiting for the delicious breakfast recipes I meant to share yesterday. You can be sure that tomorrow’s breakfast will be great, if you choose one of these recipes! I’d like to take credit for them, but I can’t. I’m including the links from where I picked them up. Also, if you have special dietary issues, make sure to make the appropriate adjustments!
Smoothies, when made with fruit, yogurt, and milk provide a dairy/fruit serving and normally provides about 12 oz of a drink. When a protein powder is added, you get the additional benefits of protein, vitamins, etc. My suggestion is a simple recipe of 1/2 cup frozen fruit (instead of ice cubes), 1 cup milk, and protein powder.

Fruit Burrito – take a wheat tortilla, spread low-fat/non-fat yogurt, add your favorite fresh fruits, roll, and eat.
Sausage, Egg, and Cheese – Scramble eggs, brown sausage, add to tortilla and top with cheese
Hot cereals, such as oatmeal or porridge, supply you with a healthy dose of fiber, but they can also be prepared in just a few minutes to take to work with you. Instant versions can be heated in your office microwave in less than five minutes. Pack a banana or sliced strawberries to top your oatmeal to add flavor and nutrients. Stir a bit of peanut butter into your hot oatmeal or porridge and your breakfast will also boast a good dose of energy-supplying protein.
