Healthy Ways to Start Your Day
We all love a country breakfast. Thick-sliced ham, pan-fried bacon and sausage, fluffy biscuits and perfectly salted, farm-fresh eggs. What’s not to love?
But if you ask your arteries – or your waistline – chances are they’ll scream “the grease, the calories and the carbs!”
Don’t fret, though. We’re here to tell you that you can have your coffeecake and eat it, too. We’ve found some breakfast recipes packed with flavor, not fat.
Impress your family or friends with a Breakfast Strata With Spinach and Swiss Cheese or a homemade Raspberry-Almond Coffee Cake, which uses light sour cream and low-fat cream cheese to lessen the blow of those unwanted calories and fat.
For a simple and quick breakfast, try whipping up some herb-seasoned scrambled Egg Beaters, a healthy alternative to whole eggs because they’re fat- and cholesterol-free. Consider serving the scrambled Egg Beaters with a low-fat hashbrown casserole, flavored with onion, celery and sharp cheddar cheese.
