Eat Right Here
Healthy Breakfast

Start your day off right with a fried egg over greens, FreshDirect salsa, local heirloom cherry tomatoes, grilled red onions, shishito peppers and a side of whole wheat toast.

My Morning myPlate

Don’t just have a morning, have a great morning! How? By starting your day with a healthy, well-balanced breakfast.

It doesn’t have to be a big meal, but a little something in the AM really does get the day started right.

Skipping breakfast makes it more difficult for the brain and body to perform well.  Adults who eat a healthy breakfast are better able to focus and be productive throughout the morning, and are more likely to have lower cholesterol levels and better weight management.

Peanut Butter and Apples

Peanut butter sandwiches served with Red Jacket Orchards apple slices make an easy and healthy breakfast!

Kids and adolescents who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to meet their nutrient needs (very important for growing bodies!), be alert and creative, miss fewer days of school, be more physically active, and perform better in problem-solving and hand-eye coordination activities.

A balanced breakfast will include lean protein, a little bit of fat, and healthy carbohydrates from whole grains, fruits, and veggies. Here’s what that means in terms of some of my favorite healthy breakfast foods:

Protein Whole Grains Fruits & Veggies
Eggs Whole wheat toast Apples and Pears
Canadian Bacon Oatmeal Bananas
Low sodium turkey Whole wheat banana bread Kiwi and Mango
Cheese Whole grain tortilla Cantaloupe
Non-fat yogurt Brown rice porridge Onions
Peanut butter Whole wheat pancakes Shishito peppers
Walnuts Whole wheat waffles Tomatoes
Yogurt with fruit, granola, nuts

Dress up Greek yogurt with fruit, granola and nuts for a quick but colorful breakfast.
