My vegetarian breakfast menu for today was oatmeal (the minute-cooking kind), toast, and apple slices. Easy breakfast for kiddos. It’s filling, nutritious, and it’s quick to prepare. Good thing because when my three little grandchildren are hungry, having to wait is not a priority. My granddaughters are used to having honey in their oats. I make it for them like their mom makes it for them – oats and honey cooled with an ice cube. I like butter and milk in my oatmeal. This is acceptable by lacto-vegetarians because they use dairy products. However, if you are an ovo-vegetarian and you prefer not to use dairy, you could leave theRead More →

Kitchens should always be stocked with yogurt and granola. Start your day with a light breakfast with a lot of protein. It’s filling and helps fight cravings for snacks and sweets. Prepare a bowl of Greek yogurt, mix a teaspoon of honey in, and top with granola. Holiday desserts, comfort food, and special breakfast entrees (usually with bread) easily increase the pounds and stretch the waist bands. By the time January rolls around, it’s time for a Daniel’s Fast or at least to cut back on foods loaded with calories and carbs. Choose a vanilla flavored Greek yogurt, or get a plain yogurt and addRead More →

Omelets and French toast fit very nicely in my comfort food list. French toast sprinkled with powdered sugar has shown up on menus forRead More →
