A lot of the stuff I make for breakfast includes blueberries. They are not only extremely good for you, but they are easy to come by. I buy them frozen in bulk from Sam's. I also use a lot of nuts--good for you and in bulk at Sam's as well. Today's breakfast was....
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
2 TBSP chia seeds
2 egg whites
3/4 cup Splenda
1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup green puree (or applesauce)
1 1/2 tsp. orange zest
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup chopped walnuts
Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, flaxseed, chia seeds and 1/4 tsp. salt. Stir in egg whites, Splenda, banana, puree and orange zest. Stir just till combined. Fold in blueberries and nuts. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 60 to 70 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Wrap and store overnight.
The kids ate it with fat-free cottage cheese and peaches. In fact, they finished off the fat free cottage cheese, so I just had it with a glass of milk. Not as much protein as I should have had, but the nuts provided some, too.
My morning snack was yogurt and light string cheese. I have recently started eating Activia yogurt to see what all the hype is about. I was always leery to use it before because I was afraid the calorie content was too high. My normal yogurt is Dannon Light 'n' Fit. But the small Light Activias are only 70 calories and they taste great.
