A Peachy Breakfast

25 Oct

Remember how I told you I was working on getting healthy and eating right? Yea, well none of that really happened last week.

Whoops.

This week things have changed: I’ve worked out, twice (so far!), and I’ve been eating better. Here was this morning’s breakfast:

It was quick, easy, and pretty healthy…Here’s how you can make it!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup sliced peaches (the frozen ones work perfectly fine — that’s what I used)
  • 1 Thomas’ Whole Wheat English Muffin, sliced in half
  • 1 tbsp. butter (unsalted)
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. uncooked oatmeal
  • 1-2 tbsp. cream cheese (whipped would be best – fewer calories without having to compromise flavor like you do with that yucky, low-fat cream cheese)
  • a dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg (optional)

Directions:

  • In a small skillet, over low heat, melt butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Once those ingredients have melted together, add in oats. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Tip: keep heat medium-low so that you don’t end up burning your pan or sauce.
  • After oats have cooked a bit in the pan, add the peaches to pan. (If using the frozen ones like I did, I recommend defrosting them before you throw them into the pan). Stir occasionally and allow peaches to warm up completely.
  • While the peach mixture is “doing its thing,” throw your muffin in the toaster, and let it brown to your desired level.
  • Finish it off! After the muffin is toasted, spread some cream cheese on each slice, and top with warm, peachy goodness!

Variation:

  • Don’t like peaches? I’m sure you can use just about any other fruit as a replacement. I actually may try this with strawberries before the week is done!

That was easy, right? And you start your day off with fiber, fruit, and overall goodness. I’m no mathematician, but I can tell you without a doubt that you won’t exceed 400 calories with this breakfast!

So next time you are thinking of making breakfast, try this, and let me know what you think!

Stay healthy, my friends…
