This section is meant to give a broad range of ideas for quick and easy breakfast meals. It includes both self-prepared and meals at restaurants, etc. The goal is quick yet nutritious eating – not a perfect diet, but a good enough diet.
For me, the staple food is cereal. I recommend sticking with healthier and more organic cereals whenever possible. I generally purchase Target Market Pantry brand over name brand – it is less expensive but tastes the same. Here is a list of some of the cereals I favor:
- Frosted Bite Sized Shredded Wheat.
- Honey Bunches of Oats (with Strawberries, with Cinnamon Cereal Clusters).
- Quaker Outmeal Squares.
- Cheerios (Multigrain, Honey Nut).
- Kellogg’s Raisin Bran.
- Market Pantry Honey and Oat Mixers.
- General Mills Kix.
- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies.
- Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.
- Market Pantry Toasted Oats.
- Special K Red Berries.
- Post Grape-Nuts.
- Kashi Golean Crisp Toasted Berry Crumble
- Kashi Strawberry Fields Organic Crispy Rice…
- Kashi Cinnamon Harvest
To make these cereals more healthy drink your milk to ensure you get the vitamin content and consider adding berries to the cereal – e.g. strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries. You can also use honey instead of sugar to sweeten the cereal.
Alternatively, I oftentimes go out to breakfast and one can get a full breakfast for under $5. My personal preference is for two eggs over hard, wheat or rye toast, and hash browns. Alternatively, one might get pancakes, waffles, or french toast.
Finally, granola and yogurt can make for a tasty breakfast.
