Although oatmeal isn’t the lowest calorie breakfast food, it’s quite filling. Make it more diet friendly by avoiding pre-packaged or instant oatmeal. Opt for the slower cooking kind and let it cook overnight in a crockpot so it’s ready in the morning. Try mixing it half and half with wheat bran which is low in both carbs and calories for a delicious cereal that’s lower in calories. Sweeten with fresh fruit, calorie-free sweetener, or sugar-free maple syrup and add skim milk instead of whole milk. Yum!
The bars come in a six pack with 2 of each of the three flavors included. This sells for about .50 at WalMart, and elsewhere. This means each bar costs about 41 cents. That’s not bad, considering the taste and nutritional value, as well as the simplicity and ease of use! The normal appetite, especially a child’s, would find one bar to be adequate for breakfast. I must admit that i generally eat two a morning. Still, that’s less than a dollar for breakfast! Milk and cereal and bowls and spoons would have cost a lot more!
Of course, I realize that eating on the run isn’t the ideal alternative to a healthy breakfast had at the breakfast table with one’s family. However, with today’s busy lifestyles, at least by eating the milk and cereal bars you don’t cut out the fulfillment of having the healthy breakfast. It’s just faster and perhaps on the go.
If you prefer a light breakfast drink, then a banana smoothie is the way to go. Milk is mixed together with mashed banana to create a healthy drink. My preference is to use non-fat milk as I find it mixes in the blender to a thicker mixture – be warned though – do not over mix or it becomes too thick. Add a few drops of vanilla to flavour.
