How are your New Year’s Resolutions going so far. Are you eating healthier and exercising more. If you try to change too much at once you may be setting yourself up for failure. But it is proven that your ability to stick to a new eating plan will improve if you simply pick smaller more achievable goals.
Let’s start with breakfast. It can be one of the more important meals of the day. And one of the easiest to control. I have found some sample breakfast menus on WebMd:
“Breakfasts That Protect Your Heart
Start the day off with healthy decisions. Choose one of these delicious breakfasts.
Cereal & Berry Bowl
1 cup 1% or skim milk
1/2 cup oatmeal with 1-2 Tbsp of chopped walnuts
Or 1 serving of cold cereal, with 5 or more grams of fiber and 8 or less grams of sugar
1 cup raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries on top
1 whole egg, 2 egg whites, or 1/4 cup egg substitutes
1 cup or more of diced tomatoes, spinach leaves, minced onion, and mushrooms
1 tsp trans-fat-free margarine or a small amount of olive oil
2 slices whole wheat toast
1 orange in sections or 1/4 cantaloupe on the side
1 cup low-fat or nonfat yogurt
1 cup high-fiber cereal
1 sliced banana, 1 cup mango, or 1 peach
A small handful of almonds on top ”
Try these tasty breakfasts just a few times a week, and see if you don’t lower your trglyceride levels and feel better.
