A simple, quick and healthy breakfast recipe

This is a guest post by Tony Rovere.

The single most common denominator among people who are obese is that they skip breakfast. Eating breakfast enables you to jump start your metabolism and get yourself started onto a healthy day of eating…if you eat the right breakfast.

The problem with most people is that eating the right breakfast, or any breakfast for that matter, can be difficult. This is because most of us are rushing to work, and trying to get the kids on their way to school.

The end result is that we either skip breakfast or end up getting something on the road that is awful for our waistline.

So I would like to propose a breakfast recipe that takes 3 minutes to make, 5 minutes to eat, and can be the foundation for healthy eating that we are all seeking.

Here’s what you do…

Get a package of Quaker Oats Weight Control Maple and Brown Sugar Oatmeal (make sure it is the Weight Control variety because the others have too much sugar). Then add one tablespoon of all-natural peanut butter, 2/3 cup of water and microwave.

After it comes out of the microwave, add one handful of almonds, one handful of blueberries (or any other berry you enjoy) and you will have a 350-calorie powerhouse that will give you…

• Good protein to build muscle mass.
• Good carbohydrates to give you the energy to get moving through your day.
• Good, heart-healthy fats to keep your heart and arteries strong.
• Good fiber to fill your stomach so you don’t eat as much throughout the day, and…
• Good levels of antioxidants to promote good health at the cellular level.

And considering how easy it is to make, there is now no excuse for you not to start your day off right.

Wow. That sounds yummy and super easy. I’m going to try and fit it into my rushed morning routine. I find, for me, it’s hard to even think of food within the first half hour of waking up. Plus I like my sleep, so I prep everything the night before and get up at the last second. 5:30 comes quick.
