Sunday Breakfast--What Do You Like To Make?
Elaine Magee, MPH, RD posted:
Sunday breakfast usually represents the one morning a week when we have more time to cook a nice breakfast and sit down as a family to enjoy it.

Waffles, pancakes, french toast, eggs and hashbrowns...take your pick.

You can take the nutrition of Sunday breakfast up a notch.

* If you are making pancakes or waffles, use half whole wheat flour, higher omega-3 eggs, lowfat buttermilk and canola oil (if fat is called for)

* If you are making French toast, use whole wheat bread, higher omega-3 eggs (half and half egg substitute and eggs works well) and canola cooking spray instead of butter in the pan

* Use zero fat shredded potatoes to start with and then brown hashbrowns in a nonstick frying pan in a small amount of canola oil (about 1 tablespoon for two servings)

* For egg dishes, you can switch to higher omega-3 eggs and use half eggs and half egg substitute or egg whites. To increase the antioxidants in your egg dishes, add spinach, broccoli, and fresh tomato.

What's your family's go to Sunday breakfast?

I made hash browns to go with omlets or easy over eggs
