Here’s a snackalicious guest post from Lisa at Snack Snoop as she shares her dad’s favorite breakfast -
Healthy snacking is a great habit once you form it. Including a fruit or vegetable at snack time gets you nutrients you need and energy to keep you going. Avoiding snack pitfalls such as junk food can be a real problem.
I try to make something that tastes BETTER than anything I can purchase so I am not motivated to eat something crappy. Here is my Dad’s favorite breakfast. The great thing about it is that incorporates tomato into breakfast. Tomato isn’t usually a breakfast food – but it should be.
This breakfast has protein, fresh fruit (tomato is a fruit actually), and whole grains to start your day well. It is only a 100 calories so you should probably eat a few to get you off to a good start (and not end up too hungry before lunch)
Wasa-Jarlsberg Breakfast Snack
- 1 Wasa Cracker
- 1 Slice Jarlsberg Cheese
- 1 Slice Tomato
Heat broiler or toaster oven. Slice tomato and sprinkle a little salt to taste. Place cheese on tomato and run under broiler until grilled (about 1 minute).
Wasa Crackers are usually whole grain and yummy (about 60 calories). They can be found in the cracker section of any supermarket. Jarlsberg is a tasty and naturally lowfat cheese (40 calories for a slice). And tomato – well it is just good for you. Having a tomato around the house will force you to add it to salads or sandwiches just to use it up – and you will be healthier for it.
