The Jimmy Dean company came up with National Hot Breakfast Month after learning that many people do not eat breakfast. About one in four people do not have breakfast at all.
Do you skip breakfast? Do you grab something fast that’s full of sugar and high fat? You’re not alone. Quick breakfast items like a granola bar, doughnut, or muffin are easy to eat and take with you. They’re also not healthy options.
How can family caregivers prepare healthy, hot breakfasts without spending hours preparing, cooking, and cleaning up? Here are some simple, quick breakfast ideas.
The goal of a farmer’s breakfast was to provide plenty of carbs and protein. Make a healthier version in one pan by scrambling eggs, chickpeas, canned tuna, fresh spinach, diced onion, and fresh mozzarella together. Top that with quarters of whole-grain pita.
Spray a pie pan with avocado oil. Scramble ten eggs with a half cup of unsweetened nut milk or low-fat milk and add some fresh herbs and black pepper. Pour half of the egg into the pie pan.
Bake that at 350 F for ten minutes and add grated cheese, diced chicken sausage, and fresh spinach. Pour the remaining egg over those and continue baking until the egg is set. Serve in slices.
Quinoa Breakfast Bowls
Purchase ready-made quinoa in your grocer’s freezer area. Bring four eggs to a boil while microwaving the quinoa as directed. Divide the quinoa into bowls and top it with slices of boiled eggs, fresh greens, olives, and almonds. Add a scoop of hummus, fresh basil leaves, and a squeeze of lemon juice before serving.
Mix eight eggs with a half cup of your parents’ preferred milk. Stir in a cup of diced low-fat cheese, diced uncured ham or turkey bacon, and fresh pico de gallo.
Pour this mixture into foil muffin liners that have been sprayed with a non-stick spray. Bake at 375 F until the egg is firm. Serve one egg muffin sandwiched between toasted whole-grain English muffins.
