Better Your Breakfast

Here are some tips on how to slim down your meal without missing a bite!

  • When you go out for breakfast ask for your eggs to be cooked dry, this will cut back on the oil or butter used to cook your eggs. (Save 250 calories)
  • Having a bagel for breakfast? Slice your bagel lengthwise in thirds, keep the ends and toss the middle, it gives you the illusion that you’re eating the whole bagel. (Save 120 calories)
  • Order Canadian bacon instead of sausage on your breakfast sandwich. (Save 100-200 calories)
  • At your next trip to Dunkin Donuts instead of getting a medium Coffee Coolatta with cream, order a medium iced coffee with skim milk and Splenda. (Saves 560 calories)
  • Eat half a grapefruit with breakfast.  The high water content helps to make you feel full and keep you from overeating at your main meal. (Save about 100 calories)
  • Make your own parfait instead of buying one.  How to make one? Use a cup of fat-free Greek yogurt, a half cup of sliced strawberries or blueberries (or even half and half), then complete the parfait with a quarter cup of Kashi GoLean Cereal (Save 151 calories)
  • Use three ounces of sliced chicken breast in your omelet instead of having three ounces of sausage.  Use some salsa or veggies to add a special kick! (Save about 120 calories)
