Simplified DASH to Breakfast Guidelines
An Introduction to a Tastier, Healthier Breakfast
Dash to Breakfast is the easiest and by far the tastiest.
It takes your taste buds a little while to adapt to the delicious low calorie, low sodium, high potassium and high fiber food.
However, soon even bacon, eggs and white buttered toast won’t look so appetizing; and you won’t be depriving yourself (like a diet does). Instead, you will be substituting something better.
The process begins with what’s in your fridge and your pantry so let’s go shopping. You don’t have to run out today, go ahead and wait until your regular shopping time.
After all, we are only trying to change one habit at a time. This is not a life disruptive event, it’s a process.
You can find our Dash to Breakfast Shopping List to the right ->
- Low-Fat Greek Yogurt
- Seedless Oranges
The quantities on the list depends on how many mouths to feed in your house.
So what’s next? Put out the number of individual bowls needed, add the yogurt, sweetener and mix. Next add the berries. Mix it up again and put a few yummy cheerios on top. But, what about the oranges? Orange juice lacks the fiber, so just peel them and eat a few slices before digging into the delicious berries. You have just dashed to a week of breakfasts.
Quick Tip: The shopping list above provides for six different breakfast berry combinations, or six different breakfasts with NO COOKING and less than 20 minutes of prep time!
