It’s a new year and that often means new resolutions. Do the resolutions to eat better, lose weight and be healthy sound familiar? If so, one great way to start the year and your day is with breakfast! Breakfast isn’t called the most important meal of the day for no reason. Eating breakfast regularly can help maintain a healthy weight, boost metabolism, improve concentration and help ward off diseases (You’ll never skip breakfast again).
Eating better and more balanced doesn’t have to mean boring meals and no-fun treats. Indulging your sweet tooth in the early AM hours can be beneficial. In fact, as stated in Men’s Fitness, eating a treat for breakfast can help you feel more satisfied and “exercise more self control over the junky stuff” throughout the day.
To stay on track with your resolutions, it is best to keep your daily diet balanced with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and protein. Back to the fun stuff, jump-start your day with our scrumptious version of dessert for breakfast: Tiramisu Oatmeal
- Brew coffee using milk as directed on package. Cook oats as preferred (stove or microwave) in brewed coffee.
- In a separate small bowl combine cheese with maple syrup to your desired sweetness (optional: set aside 1 tsp. cheese for topping).
- Add cheese mixture to oatmeal. Top oatmeal with additional cheese and sprinkle with cocoa powder. For an extra sweet morning sprinkle a bit of brown sugar on top and brown for a brûléed treat.
