Simple to Make and Tasty To Eat
A new study discovered that the healthiest breakfast is a simple bowl of cereal with milk.
By starting your day with cereal and milk, you will be less likely to stuff your face with fatty, sugary food during the course of the day. Plus, cereal nutrients your body with calcium and a variety of other key nutrients, such as fiber and protein.
Feed yourself and your loved ones a whole grain cereal with milk, and for an even more nutritious, delicious, energy-boosting breakfast, add berries or a sliced banana to the mix. Of course, the choice is always yours!
Enjoy Healthy Leftovers
Hot or Cold Turkey Sandwich
Make this delicious leftover sandwich for lunch or dinner. Simply grab a healthy whole wheat bread, slap on some light mayo, stuffing, sliced turkey and cranberry sauce. To serve hot, try open-faced and top with gravy. Then plan time to burn some energy (calories) by taking a brisk 45 minute walk.
Festive Curried Turkey Salad
Mix up a batch of tasty turkey salad and toss on a salad, a slice of French bread or roll up in a wrap. Simply add together in a bowl, 1/8 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons chutney, 3 to 4 teaspoons curry powder to taste, 1/4 cup chopped celery, 1/3 cup cranberry sauce, 1 tablespoon chopped green onion, 2 tablespoons chopped pecans or cashews, 1 1/2 cups diced turkey. Make extra and you’ll have ready-made meals for days to come.
Hot Turkey Omelet
Whip up a healthy and savory Thanksgiving omelet any time of day. Whisk 3 eggs per omelet (cook each one separately), pour into heated and oiled pan, and cook until you can lift edges with a spatula. Add pulled apart turkey, leftover stuffing and a drizzle or two or three or more of gravy. Let cook for another minute or two, then flip and let cook for another minute. Slide the omelet onto a plate, fold over and add a dollop of cranberry sauce on top. Eat with a tall glass of cranberry juice.

Here’s a sweet and spicy breakfast I made the other morning for the man around the house, who by the way, is holding strong on the Round Diet. As you can see it is a man-sized meal, whereas my less manly plate had one less slice of Polenta.
Also note that you can buy the Polenta and Chipotle salsa at a store, so you don’t need to make it yourself. Sometimes convenience is a good thing as long as you choose healthy and fresh store bought items.
2 sauteed slices of Polenta
Sunny-side up egg
Homemade or store bought Chipotle sauce or salsa
Chunks of fresh mango
Heat a non-stick pan on medium high, add one egg, lower the temperature to medium, and cook until the whites are fully cooked. In the same pan, while cooking the egg, add one or two slices of Polenta (get a supermarket) to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Slice the mango into chunks. Plate the Polenta and top with salsa store bought or your favorite homemade recipe, add the egg on the side along with the mango chunks. Eat it, enjoy and then go for a short walk.
If you are not a Polenta fan you can eat one or two golf ball sized potatoes instead. If you don’t have any tiny potatoes, try 1/2 slice of very grainy bread. If not bread, try the lighter side with a small salad.
A flavorful and comforting breakfast
