Rethink Your Breakfast

Rethink Your Breakfast
Breakfast for many people is a grab and go affair. When grabbing, make sure it is something healthy.  Starting breakfast with a muffin, sweet roll or sweetened cereal sets up a unhealthy pattern. 
When eating sweet foods for breakfast, blood sugar levels rise quickly, providing a quick burst of energy and then fall a few hours later.  Break the cycle by eating a balanced breakfast that contains a combination of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates.  
Foods to enjoy at breakfast that are good sources of protein, fiber and carbohydrates include:
·         Greek yogurt with fruit and granola
·         Hard boiled or scrambled eggs with whole wheat toast
·         Peanut butter on whole grain English muffins
·         Cheese with whole grain crackers
·         Cooked cereal with dried fruit and nuts
·         Whole grain waffle topped with fresh, frozen or canned fruit
·         Smoothie with whole wheat toast
