Breakfast cookies and healthy muffins! Make a big batch, when you get a chance and freeze lots of them! Just take out what you need, when you need them. :-D I make mine as healthy as possible, though even this morning I may have to just agree that some added sugar might always be required.
There's lots of great recipes here - perhaps the best recipe collection I've seen anywhere online! :-D

The American Heart Association has written a number of cookbooks. Some books target quick and easy, low-sodium, one-dish meals, and each cookbook offers tips on how to make your life easier and healthier for a better heart. Another huge plus: each meal lists nutritional info. And many meals taste great!
I have to have my morning cup of coffee every day, so here is how I make it work for me. I add one serving of EAS light protein powder (found at Target) into my coffee with 2 packets of Stevia. The protein powder adds 100 calories, but with 15 grams of protein it helps keep me full for a long time and cuts down on how much sweetener I need to add. Depending on what flavor you get, it's an easy and healthier way of getting that vanilla latte or chocolate mocha taste every morning.
I've never been a cook, but I've decided it's necessary for my lifestyle change. To get started I've focused on finding recipes with easy ingredients - healthier pre-made sauces or crusts, canned products, and pre-sliced items such as onions from the grocery store. Having these ready-to-use items has helped minimize my fear of the kitchen!
