It’s easy to start the day with protein rich Greek yoghurt and some fruit or half a cup of berries.
or a bowl of oatmeal id you would rather something plain.
If you do follow one of the healthy breakfast recipes, it’s helpful to have a few cooking tools on hand. If you cook eggs, make sure you have a non-stick skillet. That way you don’t have to use oil or butter when you scramble or fry them. I also keep chicken stock in the refrigerator. When I make omelettes, I use the stock instead of olive oil or butter to saute flavourful onions or shallots to add to the filling. And if you like oatmeal, make a big pot of oats just once during the week. Then portion it out into single serving containers to keep in the refrigerator and heat in the microwave each morning. Reheated oats are also very healthy.
