There are two reasons why my favorite meal of the day is breakfast First, I'm about the biggest omelet and pancake fan around. Second, breakfast provides some wonderful opportunities to insert those fruits and vegetables, arguably the two most important food groups, into meals for your family. Here is how you do it.
1.) EGGS: Scramble eggs with spinach and cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms or avocado and lean ham.
2.) PANCAKES: Whip up whole wheat pancakes with a sprinkle of ground flax seeds. Add blueberries, bananas or sweet potato (Sweet potato pancakes are divine!)
3.) SMOOTHIES: Whirl together some milk, dates, walnuts and banana and voila, a banana date shake. Try a banana and spinach smoothie. Take a ripe, frozen banana, milk and a handful of raw spinach. Yes, this smoothie is green. No, you cannot taste the spinach.
And remember, when you cannot think of something to eat for dinner...make breakfast!
