You Will Need
- Instant oatmeal
- Non-fat yogurt
- Peanut butter or other nut butters
- Whole grain pita and tortilla
- A whole potato
- Garnishes like nuts, fruit, maple syrup, granola, cheese, and sour cream
- Whole-grain offerings like crackers, pasta, bread, bagels, and English muf
- And deli meat or tuna
Eat oatmeal. It's fast, healthy, filling, and affordable. Dress it up with a spoonful of jam, a sprinkling of nuts or dried fruit, a dollop of peanut butter, or a drizzle of maple syrup.
Eat non-fat yogurt
Reach for a non-fat yogurt. It’s full of protein and calcium, and it’s great with some banana, granola, raisins, or nuts. It’s also a smart dessert.
Eat nut butters
Know your nut butters. Peanut butter sets the standard, but there's also almond, cashew, and even soybean butter. Try a spoonful on apples, celery, whole-grain crackers, and even plain pasta.
Use whole grain pitas & tortillas
Use whole grain pita bread and tortillas for eating on the go. They're perfect for holding scrambled eggs, tuna salad, or cheese and lean deli meat.
Scramble some eggs. Crack them into a mug, beat in milk or water, and microwave for about a minute. Top with cheese, onions, and lean ham or chicken, and pair with a whole-grain bread, bagel, or English muffin.
Bake a potato
Bake a potato. Stab a potato with a fork and microwave it for 8 to 10 minutes, flipping it halfway through. Carefully slice and top the hot potato with cheese, chicken, and sour cream.
