Oatmeal is my favorite food for many reasons, one of them being it really does fill me up and allows me to stay full until lunch time. The reason I put three blanks is because I normally like to put 3 healthy things in the mix!...
- Sugar Free Jam
- Skim Milk
- Frozen Berries
- Fresh Berries
- Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter (this really makes me full!)
- Plain Greek Yogurt
Egg White Scramble
My second all time favorite meal, I normally eat this meal if I want to get some good protein in and when I do not need to out the door for class.
I first take either 4-6 egg whites (depending on the morning). I always use fresh eggs, the egg whites in the container I have found to be kinda fake tasting. I heat these up in a skillet with a little Pam Cooking Spray. Once the egg begins to coagulate (fancy word I know I just learned it though in my Human Nutrition 314 class hehe), I add in turkey, salsa, peppers, onions, and a splash of skim milk to make them creamy! I am not a big cheese fan but I sure that would taste good too! (just make sure to use low fat cheese!). I let this all merry together for about 3 more minutes and pop them on to a plate with an whole white English muffin a some type of fruit! Quick, easy, Delicious breakfast!
A few months ago I decided to try Greek Yogurt.. let me tell you.. best switch of my eating career! It was so thick and creamy, its almost dare I say.. better than ice cream!! So of course with this new obsession I need to put it in everything. The first stop was breakfast, I really enjoyed it in my Oatmeal, _____,_____,_____. But I also wanted to try it in some cold cereal like Kashi Strawberry Fields, yummy:) This was a brilliant idea if I do say so myself! Eating cold cereal this way actually held me over until lunch, unlike cereal and milk. So all I do is take a Dannon Greek Yogurt Plain and add about 1 cup of whole grain cereal, mix and devour!
This is just a few of the Recipes that I have come up with, and I will be sharing more in the future!
