Many skip breakfast, either for lack of time or as a way to reduce calories. But a good breakfast can contribute to good health and reduce unhealthy cravings later in the day. We keep breakfast simple, varying over a few options including:
- Healthy Granola, I mix it with fruit (like pineapple) and yogurt
- Poached Eggs with toast (we have a neat poacher that makes this easy)
- Omelet (David’s Saturday treat; we also have it for suppers once in a while as it is quick)
- Bran Flax Muffins
Lunch – We also keep lunch simple as well, almost always a sandwich of lean meat on our homemade whole-wheat bread with a moderate amount of cheese and a piece of fruit. Occasionally, esp. on weekends, we have some leftovers.
We find if you have a good breakfast, this is sufficient but at times, we have a snack for mid-morning or afternoon. This can be another piece of fruit or we do a mixture of a 8-10 pretzels with some raisins and peanuts. A small snack is sometimes all that is needed.
