Reinventing Breakfast Foods

Monday, August 16, 2010

These days I try to eat breakfast that's balanced every day in order to get my day going right. Otherwise, the day is BAD.

Usually I eat oatmeal or cereal so I've reinvented them some in order to keep them from being boring.

Oatmeal is delicious when I add just a little sugar free creamer, sugar free caramel sauce and maple syrup. Often I will cut a banana into it after it's cooked or an apple before to make it extra special. SOOOO good!

My cereal NEEDED an updating. Now that I don't buy high sugar/low fiber cereal, it's not always the most interesting breakfast. But, to fix this, I add some no sugar added carnation instant breakfast to the milk before pouring it on my cereal which adds both flavor AND nutrition. I feel like I'm eating the cereals of old but with high fiber and high nutrition!

    Sounds like we are on the same wavelength! Here's another idea for your oatmeal - substitute unsweetened cherry juice for part of the water when cooking it. Add some cinnamon and artificial sweetener to taste - its delicious - tastes a little like cherry crisp and is still VERY healthy!! I've done the maple syrup addition too - delicious!!

    I've never tried maple syrup on oatmeal before but it makes total sense! Must give it a try. Thanks for the tip!

    I understand wanting to re-invent any meal that you have a limited set of foods you use. I have been doing smoothies all summer long since the morning temperature sometimes is over 90 by 8:00am. I have challenged myself to come up with a new smoothy flavor every other day using only 5 different ingredients per week. I have learned to love many of the flaxseed and bran combinations. I wish you all the best in the coming weeks on reinventing your meals not just breakfast. emoticon
