In this edition of Dietitian Tells All...
What does a dietitian have for breakfast?!
I’m glad you asked! As a food lover, I can’t get enough of everything that breakfast has to offer. This is my favorite meal of the day and it could have something to do with that I’m an unashamed “morning person”. That’s right, I jump out of bed–turn music on and I immediately feel like i’m in a music video. I could go on but that’s for a whole different blog post!
Every morning begins with French pressed iced coffee. This is a non negotiable. Recently I’ve added a splash of silk-nog because I just love the nog. I also add a sprinkle of cinnamon when I’m feeling fancy. From there, it’s a toss up between whole wheat pancakes, a Greek omelet, and overnight oatmeal- which are my most recent obsessions.
If I set myself up for success on a Sunday night…I go for this…
I use Silk Nog, which is the soy milk version of eggnog. There are many other alternatives to the heavy stuff (regular eggnog). Here are other options:
Another favorite recipe of mine is one I created for overnight carrot cake oatmeal. It’s decadent!
You honestly can’t go wrong pancakes!
There’s something about pancakes that I never get sick of. I think it’s the versatility that draws me in. Try out my whole wheat pumpkin pancakes which are always a crowd pleaser!
If time is not on my side
…I grab one of my favorites in addition to a piece of fruit:
Rx Bar, Quest Bar, Lara Bar, or a KIND bar.
