Breakfast in a hurry!
America's favorite breakfast is still cereal. Yogurt is gaining, but it hasn't won the battle yet. Personally, I enjoy a combination of granola and yogurt. On a chilly day, when time allows, hot oatmeal can't be beat. And there are so many ways to dress it up for variety: raisins, dried cranberries or cherries, molasses, honey, brown sugar, nuts, granola, fresh fruit and berries...only your imagination can stop this list.
Our favorite brands, tried and true, are:
- Bob's Red Mill Organic Rolled Oats (gluten free available also)
- Arrowhead Mills Bite Size Shredded Wheat Cereal (sweetened and plain)
- Publix Greenwise Honey Nut Toasted Oats Organic Cereal
- Cascadian Farms Organic Purely O's
- Cascadian Farms Granola, Oats and Honey
If you're like my hubby, you have to have a healthy, organic banana every morning. Slice it up atop your Purely O's, pour on some organic milk and add OJ: Breakfast is read to go.
Whatever your favorite from this list, high fiber will be there to keep your digestive system chugging along at a nice pace. Adding nuts and fruit to breakfast will only improve the action.
One last word. Every nutrition and diet expert on the planet touts the virtues of eating a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast is simply not an option. If you're in that big of a hurry in the morning, at the very least, grab a couple of granola bars and a juice box to go. Check out my contest for a free box at Lets Talk Granola Bars. If you're really into granola bars, there's another contest going on at New Kid on the Green Block, and you can get in on that action too: Where Has YOUR Granola Bar Been? Hope to hear from you soon, and don't forget that breakfast tomorrow morning....
