Power Breakfast




Temperatures in the teens, chasing two year olds, walking Boss four times a day, and many runny noses made me decide I needed a power breakfast. First pomegranate-cranberry juice, full of vitamin c and helps lower blood pressure. Next a bowl of oatmeal cooked in skim milk; Calcium and D; loaded with fiber and protein this stick to the rib cereal will keep me going all morning. Throw in a few pumpkin seed and you get some much need magnesium and additional fiber. Sprinkle on some cinnamon, helps control blood sugar and helps reduce bad cholesterol. Throw in some chopped apple it provided natural sweetness, an everyone knows an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Bring it on winter! I'm ready


More Ruby Tuesday here.

Ummm...loving your power breakfast. So much better for you than the bacon, waffles and coffee that I had. Oatmeal DOES stick to the ribs...and I love it with a little yougart, sprinkle of cinnamon and Splenda or brown sugar. Gotta get some of that juice, too.
GREAT post!!

I think you called it right - power breakfast. I love adding good stuff like that to my oatmeal.
