I tend to be a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast. Every morning, I always have a peanut butter granola bar, greek yogurt with granola, a tangerine and coffee.
According to the USDA guidelines, there are four basics categories that consist of a healthy breakfast:
1. Whole grains – whole-grain rolls and bagels, hot or cold whole-grain cereals, whole-grain English muffins, and whole-grain waffles.
2. Lean protein – include eggs, lean meat, legumes and nuts.
3. Low-fat dairy – milk, plain or lower sugar yogurts, and low-fat cheeses, such as cottage cheese and natural cheeses.
4. Fruits and vegetables – fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, 100 percent juice drinks without added sugar, and fruit and vegetable smoothies.
So based on the above categories, I think I meet the requirement for a healthy breakfast except maybe for coffee. Hey at least I’m down to 3 cups a day. I used to drink a whole pot a day. So that’s a start! 🙂
And, yes it is cold outside! Jack Frost decided to pay a visit again, it was 24 degrees this morning.
