What to do for breakfast?

I think it is easiest to eat well at the dinner table. It is the meal when we are most likely to cook from scratch, make sure our meal is “balanced” (i.e. main dish with sides), we usually aren’t in a rush, and sit down and eat with our family and friends. Breakfast and lunch tend to be where we we have problems. We are much more likely to reach for convenience items and way less likely to pile veggies on our plates. I don’t succeed everyday, but here are some of my tips for breakfast.

3. Experiment with different seasonal veggies and different cheeses in an egg casserole.

 4. If you can’t handle another egg dish, experiment with grains other than wheat or opt try different combinations of yogurt, fruit, and nuts.
