I usually have a small bowl of cereal with some fruit added. Is that a good option for breakfast. I am considering a boiled egg but am afraid because I have high cholesterol. What is my best option for a healthy meal in the morning?
I have one or two eggs a week. Berries and nuts mostly for breakfast and a slice of Ezequiel bread. You may find this bread at most health food stores and Publix. This bread does not contain any flour per se so its very low on the glycemic index. I have learned small portions are the key for me. Oatmeal raises my blood sugar but not for others.
I usually have 1/2 cup oatmeal or multi grain cheerios cereal, a small apple and 1/2 cup low fat milk. A 30 minutes walk and water.
Scrambled eggs with a tangerine; 1/2 c old fashioned cooked oatmeal with almond milk and 2 tbsp walnuts or slivered almonds and a small apple. (Or dice the apple right into your oatmeal)-no sugar. Or 1 c. full fat greek yogurt (full of protein and fat helps you from spiking) with fresh berries. Throw in a tbsp of sunflower kernels for crunch.
I like bran flakes cereal or plain oatmeal sweetened with splenda, 1/3 cup blueberries and 1/2 cup low fat milk and sometimes I add sliced almonds for my breakfast. If I'm rushing out the door for work I carry granola bars, a small apple, almonds and a bottle of water.
My cholesterol used to high too until I started eating oatmeal, blueberries, grate fruits, salmon and cooking with extra virgin olive oil. Also, I take a fish oil vitamin twice a week. Walks up to 2 hrs daily and drinking 3-4 bottles of water. Also, unsalted almonds are good too.
