Eat a Healthy Breakfast!

We’re still in the middle of the cold, flu, and virus season, so make a concerted effort to stay healthy. One of the best things you can do for your family is make sure everyone starts out with a healthy breakfast.

Since your days are probably as hectic as mine, I came up with some suggestions for healthy but quick-and-easy breakfasts. Here they are:
• Oatmeal with raisins and milk
• Fruit and yogurt wrap – Slather Greek yogurt on a whole wheat tortilla and fill with slices of your favorite fruit.
• Leftover veggie pizza
• Apple slices with peanut butter
• Fruit smoothie – Mix apple juice, frozen strawberries, plain Greek yogurt, a tablespoon of honey, and a small banana in a blender.

Debby, those sound like some great breakfast ideas! As you can probably tell, I'm a big fan of fruit smoothies.

Here is a recipe one of my guests shared with me:

Armando’s Green & Fruit AM boost Smoothie -

* 1 Banana (ripe is best – frozen if desired)
* 1-2 cup OJ
* 1-cups Baby Carrots (or chopped carrots)
* 1-2 cups fresh Spinach Leaves
* 6 fresh strawberry -frozen if desired)


1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth
2. Enjoy as you eat raw veggies & fruit. This is also a great way to give your kids their veggies.
