When preparing your breakfast, experiment with new, leaner ways to yummy-up your meal! Ditch the butter and loads of store-bought Aunt Jemima maple syrup, and instead use a dash or cinnamon or agave syrup (also known as nectar) to add a delicious kick! And if you really want that true maple syrup experience, go for the real 100% all natural maple syrup, which doesn’t have any additives or loads of fake sugar, and only use a dash of it. You don’t need much to savor the decadent flavor!
Other great choices to add to cold or hot cereals like oatmeal are fresh fruit (berries are the best!) , chopped nuts (like chopped walnuts or slivered almonds) or a TB of nut butter.
Some of my favorite breakfast food pairings:
-1/3 cup Quinoa flakes cooked with 1 cup water with 1 tsp Cinnamon and 1 TB Smart Balance Omega Buttery Spread
–2 Buckwheat Wildberry Waffles with 1/2 cup Fresh Blueberries
–2 Eggs prepared your way with 1 piece Ezekial toast spread with 1 TB Organic Almond Butter
–1 cup High fiber/Low sugar Cereal of choice with 1/2 cup Organic Soy milk or Skim milk topped with 2 TB Chopped Walnuts
–Breakfast shake made with 1 cup Skim or Soy milk, 1 medium Banana, 1 TB flax oil, and 1/2 cup Strawberries or 1/2 fresh Peach
