Bad Fat

[ad]

  • Don’t eat Fried Chicken. Grill a chicken breast instead, much less fat!
  • Try turkey sausages instead of brats.
  • Fancy some chips? Try hummus.
  • Pizza? Make you own?
  • Pasta? Try whole wheat variety. Make your own sauce.
  • Ice cream? Try frozen yogurt.
  • Doughnuts for breakfast? Give oatmeal a try. If it’s too plain for your taste, add some fruit or raisins.
  • Double Chocolate Cheesecake grab your fancy?  It’s 800+ calories and 57g of fat a slice! Try a plain variety, it’s less evil to your body

Breakfast Options that Mr Kelogg would be proud of..

I have a friend who eats rice, like hot cereal, for breakfast.  He adds butter, sugar, a little milk, to instant white rice.

I have a family member, who thinks a big monstor bagel, toasted with loads of cream cheese, is heavenly.

I have friends who let their children snack on chocolate poptarts.

My last adventure down the cereal aisle led me to the delightful oat square cereal, with strawberries..  and horrible digestive and headache issues, because of the sugar substitutes.

Many of us know those instant packets of oatmeal, loaded with sugar, that you just add hot water to..

You get the idea..

Among the 8 million bad breakfast choices, that one can make.. there are some simple breakfasts that could win your heart back to the breakfast table.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal.  Avoid all the Quick Oats and Instant Oats.  We want the real stuff.

Soak two cups, of it, in the fridge, with two cups of whole milk buttermilk, over night, and you can easily make These Truly Awesome OatCakes. They taste like the centers have real oatmeal in them.  They flash freeze well and can be eaten, from the freezer, for a few days.

I made Cream of Wheat sing, when I cooked it with Moo Juice, instead of water.

I’d like to add some creamy cheese grits, right here, but I’m incapable of making them, right now.

To the above, you can add sliced bananas, sliced peaches, sliced strawberries, peanut butter, maple syrup, brown sugar, milk/cream, butter, or nutella, in small amounts, to give your more wholesome breakfast, a little pizazz.

All this grain goodness, above, and you didn’t have to grease a muffin tin.

More Fiber, Less Weight

Hot Bread

A new study has found that eating more fiber is not only good for your digestive system, but is also good for helping to keep your weight down

It showed that those who eat more fiber, weighed, on average, less than those that didn’t.

Fiber-rich foods tend to be more filling too, and as they’re often less processed, contain more vitamins and nutrients.

Some easy ways to get more fiber:

Eat oatmeal, brown rice, and whole wheat bread.
