Breakfast in a hurry.
Let’s say you’re on your way to work or school or an appointment and you think – think being the key word – that you don’t have time to make a healthy breakfast. Pull out of your driveway and start the timer. How long does it take you to drive to a fast food restaurant (maybe it happens to be on the way?), wait in line to order at the drive-thru, place your order, pay for the food and actually pull out of the parking lot with your breakfast sandwich and hashbrown meal in hand?
Guess what? You just had time to make a healthy breakfast at home!
First – if you’re really pushed for time – get anything you can ready the night before. Take out the bowl, place the cereal box next to it, measuring cups, a frying pan…whatever you need.
Grab and go with a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts.
Pour a glass of milk and have a banana.
Spread peanut butter on whole wheat bread and have a glass of milk.
Top cereal with milk and peel an orange (you can peel it the night before too).
Microwave oatmeal, made with milk.
Mix cottage cheese with fruit.
Mix yogurt with frozen berries and a few tablespoons of low fat granola.
Make a smoothie with yogurt, fruit and a little milk.
