So along with this whole working out to get healthier and ready for my fitness certification thing, I also need to participate in the second, always proven part of the get healthy plan. EAT healthful foods.
Since I’ve actually starting cooking now that I’ve been married, I’ve tried to make nutritious meals and somehow get Jordan to eat vegetables. But it’s not good enough. There’s still way too much junk going into our bellies. (We are snackers!) We’ve both realized this and want to change our eating ways. I’ve never really been on a diet. And I wouldn’t even call what we’re trying to change a “diet”…just some simple changes in our habits.
You know that one thing people always say but it seems like not a lot of people do? Eat a good breakfast. That has been our first step towards a more nutritious lifestyle and I think it really has made our days better. I would occasionally eat some cereal or something, but lately I’ve been having a bowl of oatmeal every morning and it has been deliciously wonderful. The brown sugar maple Food Lion brand kind is my favorite. Yummm. Jordan has been eating yogurt with granola. I’m not so much a fan of this (or at least I haven’t found a kind I like yet) but he has loved it.
So…my question for you is this: What other nutritious breakfast foods should I try? I know I’m not going to eat oatmeal every day for the rest of my life. Or take the time to make eggs. So what do YOU like to eat for breakfast that gets you off to a great start and a healthy day?
