Breakfast:

This is best if you have a sandwich maker...

use either a whole grain bread or english muffin
spread with lowfat cream cheese on top and bottom
slip apple slices in the middle
toast in sandwich maker or make like grilled cheese sandwich

The first time I did it I used whole wheat bread, it reminds me of apple pie. You could even sprinkle some cinnamon and nutmeg on it if you wanted...


I also use the whole grain english muffins and make peanut butter banana sandwiches for breakfast... yum

Don't be tied into the idea that you have to eat "brakfast food" for breakfast. We quite often do leftovers for breakfast. Yesterday my 12yo son ate jamaican brown fish stew.

We also do alot of things with eggs because we raise our own chickens. One of my ways to use up leftovers is the "Friday Fritata." Throw together whatever leftovers you have in a skillet, beat up some eggs and pour them over. Let them cook on th estove top until they're starting to set on the bottom and then throw them in the oven at 350F for about 20 minutes. You can eat it hot, cold or room temp so it's a great thing when everyone has somewhere they need to be. Plus, if you want to keep the calories super low, use 1 egg yolk for every 4 whites.

Another thing my kids really like is honey mustard chicken fingers which is a recipe I got from Hungrygirl, a site I highly recommend.

For each person:
one 5 ounce chicken breast
1 egg yolk
2 tsp honey mustard
10 pretzels, crushed

Cut the chicken breast into 4-5 strips. Mix together the honey mustard and egg white and toss the chicken breasts in them. Let that stand for about 5 minutes and then toss each piece with the pretzel crumbs. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.

(I think she might have cooked them in a skillet sprayed with pam but I have to make this for 6 people so I bake them.)

I serve it a sauce of equal parts greek yogurt and peach all fruit or orange marmalade.

There are loads of recipes on her website. Some of them I don't like because she uses alot of chemical bomb substitute foods but others are really good. She has alot of make your own takeout stuff.

On emotional eater we have a topic that ask the question what did you have for breakfast. I have also seen this on parents of teens, but not for a while. You could look this up or start a new one. What I like about it when people post you get to see lots of different ideas of what people are eating daily. To me its not just for fun, but getting other ideas. Its just a suggestion to give you ideas.

I have always told my kids that I wasn't running a restaurant where I was fixing 4 different types of food and I am stumped coming up with different ideas that are healthy. I am looking for ideas for meals-breakfasts (we don't eat together), lunches (need some healthy ideas for kids to take to school during the week and for us at home on weekends), snacks and dinners (we do eat this meal together. If anyone knows any sites or teams on here, please let me know because I don't want us to go back to living on boxed mac and cheese.
