Weight Loss: Breakfast Beats the Band When it comes to Losing Weight

Are you and your family gomming-down breakfast these days - or missing breakfast totally?  If so, let's see if we can offer some solutions for breakfast time - the most important meal of the day.

Kids Breakfast Suggestions & Ideas: Prepare scrambled eggs rolled in flour tortilla shells the evening before.  These warm up quickly in the microwave when wrapped-up in a damp paper towel.

Another quick warmer-upper are Pigs in the Blanket.  Use low fat Smoky Links OR sausage and be sure to drain and dot with a paper towel to remove excess oils/fat. Next, wrap in a raw biscuit and pop into the oven. Bake as directed on the biscuit container until golden brown.

Adults Breakfast Suggestions & Ideas: Believe it or not, adults tend to be a bit pickier about breakfast than kids. Try to cut down on selections for breakfast so that decision-making won't be so difficult.

Pineapple Fruit Boat:  Nothing quite like a piece of fresh fruit - particularly a hulled out pineapple half which has been filled with fresh grapes, peaches, strawberries and melon the evening before.

Boiled Eggs: These lovelies make a great grab-n-go breakfast when accompanied with a glass of fresh orange juice.  The Diet Perk is that leftovers can be deviled for dinner.

Senior Breakfast Suggestions & Ideas: Now if you think that we're going to suggest stewed prunes and oatmeal - get a grip - on life, that is!

Seniors should be the most respected sector of the community.  After all, they've just about seen and heard it all - trust me. But the downside about seniors is that they tend to mellow out a bit too much, particularly with their diets.

Therefore, seniors should get a little daring with their diet - experiment and enjoy. Might we suggest the following as a Breakfast Starter?

Exotica Breakfast for Seniors: The next time that you're out and about OR if you can't go out and about, ask a loved one or friend to pick up some exotic fruit for you.  Kiwi, pomegranates, star fruit, mangos, papaya - many very popular exotic fruits can be easily found at your local market.  

Enjoy for breakfast with any of the following:  

- a wedge of cheese

- a bit of yogurt

- a homemade strawberry fruit dip of 1/2 cup of frozen strawberries 'melted' in the microwave combined with a couple of spoons of Splenda

Orange Scones, Cinnamon Scones, Cranberry Scones, Blueberry Scones - Hot scones right our of the hot oven are a dieter's delight. You can convert most any recipe by using our Healthy Substitution guide located here.
