In today’s fast lifestyle, everyone, is in a hurry. Breakfast is and should always be enjoyed, never skipped. A wise man, who happens to also be my dentist has said more than once, if you eat breakfast as a king, lunch as a queen and dinner as a pauper, you cannot go wrong to being healthy and not adding on weight.
If you think about this, it makes perfect sense, so I decided to add some delicious breakfast ideas here for you busy folk without time on your side.
More than likely you already know that eating fast food is not a healthy choice. However, you probably keep eating it for a variety of reasons. Even though everyone is aware of how bad fast food can be, the fast food industry is doing just fine, even during tough economic times.
Simply check out the fast food joints during lunch hour or around dinner time and you will quickly realize that many people are choosing to keep eating fast food, even if they know it is not good for them. So, how can you stop eating fast food?
It’s not like a gourmet breakfast is a realistic everyday goal. But that doesn’t mean we should settle for a sugar rush that will leave us sad and hungry just a half hour later.
You’d be surprised how many healthy breakfast ideas require very little effort when put into practice. We’re about to blow your mind with everything from crazy-easy breakfast muffins you can make ahead of time to healthy smoothie recipes you can whip up day-of in just minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 18 muffin cups with cooking spray.
Roll out biscuit dough on a lightly floured surface to form 5-inch rounds. Place each round in the prepared muffin cups, pressing into the base and sides to form a dough cup.
Cook and stir sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes; drain fat. Spoon sausage into dough cups.
Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well-beaten. Pour egg mixture into each dough cup, filling each just below the top of the biscuit dough. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top of egg mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set and biscuit dough is golden, 15 to 18 minutes.

You may use any type of meat that you wish. This is very breakfast friendly. My family like to add turkey and bacon sometimes also. Its very tasty. Good with orange juice.
Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
Some do not like cooking or do not feel like cooking after working hard all day, so they go with this food choice. There are even some that believe that fast food is a cheaper option as well.
NO BAKE Banana and Peanut Butter Smoothy
Place bananas, milk, peanut butter, honey, and ice cubes in a blender; blend until smooth, about 30 seconds.
Enjoying better health is as simply as mixing this food choice and starting to make quick and healthy meals at home. Get the family involved and you will enjoy spending time together and cut back on prep time, since everyone is helping out.
Take time to go grocery shopping on the weekends, purchasing healthy ingredients that you can use to make easy and quick meals. If you stock up on the right items for cooking at home, you will be less likely to make that stop at the fast food joint.
Spend some time looking at recipes online as well. Start learning more about cooking and ways that you can cut back on the time it takes the prepare a meal. The more you learn, the better job you will be able to do in the kitchen.
The thought of having delicious food delivered right to your door probably makes your mouth water, but it may also make your head shake “no” if you are trying to eat healthy foods.
Most people assume that the food delivered through a food service will be sinfully delicious and filled with fat, sugar, salt and very high calorie loads. This is often the case, but you can order takeout food without packing on the pounds.
You just have to know how to order takeout food with health in mind.
The first thing you need to do is look over the entire menu for healthier options. Many delivery services will offer some healthy menu options for those who want lighter fare. You can sometimes find something right on the menu that suits your needs and your taste buds.
Just note that many lighter dishes will come in smaller portions than other meals on the menu. They will also be cooked differently. There may or may not be a price difference between these lighter options and regular menu options.
If you don’t find what you are looking for already on the menu, then it’s time to look the menu over for options that can easily be made healthier. For instance, you may be able to request grilled chicken instead of fried chicken on a salad with light dressing on the side.
There may be ways to order your meat cooked differently to cut back on oil.
Leaving off the sauce is another way to make a delivery meal healthier. The sauces used by restaurants are made to please the taste buds, but if they aren’t listed with a meal designed to be lower in calories or healthier in general you can guarantee they pack a lot of calories.
If you leave the sauce off and simply request your food to be well seasoned with herbs and spices you can cut a lot of calories off without taking away from the taste completely.
You can also make substitutions on the side foods to come up with a healthier meal. For instance, request vegetables or fruit instead of french fries or a baked potato. Not many delivery services will have whole grain pasta and breads, but you can request them to see if they are offered. You never know, they may be available!
Ordering half portions is another option to reduce calorie consumption. Find something reasonably healthy and ask for only a half portion to be delivered. This may save you some money while helping you resist the urge to eat past that point of feeling full.
