N.C. Cooperative Extension, Stanly County Center is always trying to work on improving health in our community by encouraging cooking more at home and eating healthier options. One way you can do this is by improving your breakfast each day.

Just as you would with lunch and dinner, it is important to think about MyPlate when making your breakfast.

What are some fruits you could eat in the morning? I think that is pretty easy… I love all fruits but some of my favorites are bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and avocados (also a healthy fat source).

What are some vegetables you could eat in the morning? Think about an omelet! You could add bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and more.

What are some lean protein options you may choose? Eggs or egg whites are a definite for me, deli meat (ham, turkey, etc.), peanut butter, and you may even try to add some lean beef/steak, chicken, etc. into an omelet or egg scramble.

What are some whole grains you may eat for breakfast? Some of my go-tos are whole grain toast, oatmeal, and whole grain english muffins.

Lastly, how can you add in low-fat dairy? You may drink a Fat Free milk or add it to a smoothie. You could also put some cheese in an omelet or on a breakfast sandwich.

Here are a few delicious and simple recipes that you can try at home to start your day in a healthy way!
