My Go To Breakfast

Here’s a breakfast I eat most workday mornings.  I try to create nutrient balance to my meals and breakfast is no exception.  Protein is a morning must.  It helps to  silence those mid-morning donut cravings.  My weekday AM protein comes from almond butter, plain or vanilla Greek yogurt and fat-free milk.  Even one slice of Ezekiel bread adds 4 grams of protein.  My breakfast protein goal is about 20 grams.  I balance the protein with healthy fat from the nut butter and high fiber carbohydrates from the bread and berries.  Some probiotics from yogurt and extra calcium and vitamin D from milk rounds out the nutrient punch.  Quick tip:  I had a bunch of strawberries the other day so I made a fast, fresh strawberry spread cooking the berries with a little bit of sugar and lemon juice.  Excellent on top of plain yogurt.
