Living Well in Yalobusha County

By Pamela Redwine

1. Make a sandwich: make a peanut or almond butter sandwich on whole grain bread. This breakfast travels especially well.

2. Think ahead with overnight oats: Make overnight oats with ½ cup regular oats, 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt, ½ cup frozen berries.  Mix well, then pop it in the fridge and eat it in the morning.

3. Try new whole grains: Cook quinoa with ginger and cinnamon, then top it with chopped walnuts.  You can make a big batch at the beginning of the week and reheat a serving of leftovers each morning.

4. Green eggs, no pan: Scramble 2 eggs and top them with 1 cup of fresh spinach. Pop the whole thing in the microwave for 1 minutes, then add 1 tablespoon shredded cheese to create a mini omelet.

5. Go Against Breakfast Tradition: Try a combination of string cheese, whole grain crackers, and grapes.

6. When choosing a cereal or cereal bar look for one that has at least 3 grams of fiber per serving and no more than 8 grams of sugar per serving.
