The Healthy Kitchen

Unfortunately most of us only have a few minutes, if that, to spare in the mornings before heading to work. How are you supposed to eat a healthy energy boosting breakfast in a flash? Here are 3 fast and easy recipes to get your day started on the right foot!

Meal option #1 – Power Cereal: Start by serving yourself a bowl of Special-K Protein Cereal. It has a whopping 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving! Pour in skim or lowfat milk and add ¼ cup of your favorite nuts and you’ve got yourself a power cereal that will keep you full for hours!

Meal option #2 – Ham and egg burrito: This is a great breakfast idea since it is very filling and has the perfect combination of whole wheat, healthy fats, and proteins. Start by heating up an 8 inch whole wheat tortilla. Add some canadian bacon or lean ham, a hard boiled egg sliced 7 times, and top it off with a slice of low fat cheese. Wrapt it up and you’ve got yourself a healthy and tasty breakfast burrito!

Meal option #3 – quick toast breakfast: If you only have a few minutes to spare before heading out to work, try this quick and easy breakfast idea. Toast a slice of whole grain bread and add some peanut butter as soon as it comes out. Top it off with raisins or nuts and couple it with an apple and you’ve got yourself a low fat and low sugar power breakfast that will keep you full for hours!
