Today on Good Day Sacramento, I shared easy and nutritious breakfast options for everyday of the week!
Weekday morning breakfast
Yogurt parfaits and overnight oats are great weekday options. I made them with Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit, which is sweeter-than-green kiwi with a tropical-sweet flavor similar to a cross between a mango & strawberry! I recommend using one serving which has 3x the Vitamin C of a medium orange and meets 100% of your daily vitamin C needs – a nutrient that is important for immune health. To make the overnight oats, combine 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of plain low fat yogurt, 1 tbsp of chia seeds and 2 chopped up Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit. Transfer to a jar, let that sit in the fridge overnight and you have a delicious breakfast waiting for you in the morning.
Grab and go breakfast
For a grab and go option we have Atkins new Mocha Latte Protein Shakes which have 15g of protein, 1g of sugar and just 4 g net carbs so they satisfy hunger and provide steady energy. You can find them at Walmart.com, Atkins.com and on Amazon. And Atkins has great meals, snacks and meal plans for those looking to get back on-track and lose the “quarantine 15”.
Weekend morning breakfast
For weekends we have citrus waffles made with Uncle Matt’s Organic, which is #1 selling brand of organic orange juice that also makes functional beverages like the Organic Orange Turmeric with probiotics that support digestion and immunity. I used 1 cup of the classic Pulp Free Orange Juice which meets 100% of your vitamin C needs and is made with a blend of organic Hamlin and Valencia oranges. Find these at Whole Foods, Sprouts and Raley’s. To make your waffle batter combine 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 cup Uncle Matt’s Organic Orange Juice, 1 egg, zest of 1 orange, pinch of salt and 2 tbsp of oil.
