Getting Healthy (critique what we eat please!) - Page 2

post #21 of 25
I don't have the attention span right now to read all the previous posts! So this may already be mentioned
I have found it true that if you eat some protein within the first hour of waking up, you will not crave the sugar.
Maybe drink some milk before lying back down, if you just want something quick.
The only other thing I would make sure of is that you are keeping the High Fructose Corn Syrup out as much as possible. That's just an un breakable rule for me.

What about just making a smoothie in the morning. My DH is TERRIBLE about grabbing breakfast. If something doesn't 'grow' in the fridge for him ready to be eaten then he just won't eat and will leave with an empty stomach. So in the evening (when I know he doesn't have much time the next mroning) I grab some strawberries a piece of banana (we usually have fresh frozen fruit in the freezer) and maybe some blueberries or spinach and throw it in the cup of my Magic Bullett to thaw in the fridge overnight. All he has to do is add some protein powder, some almond milk and splenda, mix it and he can even take the cup into the car. It takes maybe two minutes, if that at all. It's fast and will keep him full for a few hours until he gets it together to buy some good foods for himself.

I like a little stirred into oatmeal, too.

I bake my whole wheat nut bread with blackstrap molasses. It's a little sweet but sooo good.

A breadmaker is another option for you (OP). It's easy to just throw everything in and let it do the work and maybe you can cut out on the bagels, which are basically just empty carbs and fats. At least with a home made bread you know what's in it.

OP: You could try finding a high-protein muffin recipe, too. I do hard-boiled eggs in the fridge for myself, but I'm going to find a good muffin recipe for the kids, I think. They need nuts.
