EAT HEALTHY DURING THE MORNING RUSH HOUR
Busy schedules make it difficult to take time to eat…especially in the morning. For a high-protein breakfast that is also low in calories, try topping a scoop of cottage cheese with unsweetened applesauce and then sprinkle it with bran cereal for a little crunch.
Another "topper" idea is to top toasted English muffin halves with sliced Muenster or Swiss cheese and pop them under the broiler for a few minutes. Also, top them with diced ham, cooked vegetables or a spoonful of tomato sauce, if that sounds good to you.
An old standby is oatmeal because it sticks-to-the-ribs, as the old saying goes. To boost the fiber and protein content, stir in wheat germ and bran. Regular oatmeal cooks in just 5-minutes, quick cooking oatmeal in just 2-minutes, and then there are always the instant packages that microwave in 1-minute or only seconds if you have hot tea water on hand ready to add, stir, and eat.
On a final note: if you and your children hate eating breakfast as soon as you get up, why not just take it with you in the morning? Hard-cooked eggs, cheese cubes, oranges, small boxes of raisins, peanut butter sandwiches, and whole grain muffins are all good candidates for the "brown bag breakfast"!
