On the go? Fuel up with nutritious fareBy FamilyFeatures.com
For many people, September means getting busier as they get back into the swing of work and school routines. It may not be on your to-do list yet, but it’s important to remember that eating a healthy breakfast is key to getting your day off to a good start.
Most days, finding time for a balanced breakfast may be easier said than done. Milk is one way to start. An 8-ounce glass of milk offers eight grams of high-quality protein. Milk also provides many essential nutrients, including B vitamins for energy, vitamin A for a healthy immune system and calcium (whether or not it is fat free, low-fat or organic).
Pair that glass of milk with breakfast dishes prepared ahead of time to alleviate the morning rush. These make-ahead Eggs in a Nest, once cooled, can be stored in airtight bags in your fridge for three to four days and reheated. And this Nutty Blueberry Quinoa Oatmeal is easy to make “on the spot.” Find additional recipes at milklife.com.
Protein-rich, nutritious nondairy options include fortified soymilk. Those who are lactose intolerant can consider it as well as lactose-free milk, which provides nutritional benefits found in regular milk.
