A Healthy Recipe: Substantial BreakfastsA Healthy Recipe: Substantial Breakfasts

It's morning. Time to get up. After getting dressed, brushing your teeth and combing your hair, your first thoughts are of the report due at work. Or the homework you didn't get finished last night. NO! You should be thinking "I'm hungry!" What's for breakfast? Good you are on the right track since breakfasts are the most important meals of your days. Your food tank is empty and it needs refueled. Otherwise you will be inattentive, draggy and darn hungry.

Breakfast doesn't have to be a long drawn out affair. Even a quick one will work if it is planned right. A simple one is that English Muffin tucked away in the back of the cabinet, split then toasted, buttered and topped with cheese if you are really in a hurry. If you have a little more time, add a scrambled or fried egg (in a non-stick pan minus the butter or oil) and voila! A glass of milk or juice and you are out the door. Yes, this can be portable as well.

Even a slice of toast with peanut butter (and jelly?) and a glass of milk will suffice for another quick 'recipe' for breakfast. Hot oatmeal with fruit on top or a small spoonful of raisins and cinnamon is yummy. If you don't like oatmeal, how about cream of wheat with brown sugar and milk and a blueberry muffin. Add fruit juice and your good to go.

If you have ample time, like on the week end, a more leisurely breakfast of maybe waffles, whipped cream (low fat) and strawberries would be good, with a serving of Canadian Bacon or sausage on the side and perhaps scrambled eggs. Or applesauce pancakes with maple syrup, fried egg (in no-stick pan) and skim milk. Yum. Tasty but healthy too.

Those breakfasts that we have discussed so far have been pretty traditional, some even quick and easy. For a few more non-traditional breakfast meals, continue reading. Omelets filled with a variety of vegetables such as mushrooms, green and red peppers, minced onion and cheese are among the not so common foods for breakfast. Add a toasted bread of your choosing, juice and milk and you're a happy camper.

Perhaps you had a little get-together last night. There's a little pizza left over, so don't believe those that say pizza cannot be healthy in the morning. Yes it is. Containing grains (crust), veggies (tomato sauce on the crust) plus a little meat of choice and a serving of cheese (dairy). Who says pizza is not good for you. Anytime.

French toast is a tasty and easy breakfast. Mix an egg and a cup of milk with a dash of sweetener of your choice and nutmeg. Dip four slices of bread quickly into the blend and fry lightly in a dab of butter. Serve with jelly or syrup.

The bottom line is, breakfasts are the most important meals of the day. Don't miss them when there are all these wonderful ways to prepare them, quickly or at a more leisurely pace.
