HEALTH TIP OF THE WEEK
Try these quick, fun breakfast options.
Don't skip breakfast, even if it's become a bore. Change it up, instead. People who eat breakfast tend to have more strength and endurance, better concentration, and lower cholesterol. If you're tired of the same old cereal, try these healthy breakfasts. 1. A whole-wheat pita stuffed with hard-boiled eggs. 2. Leftover vegetable pizza. 3. A tortilla filled with vegetables, salsa and low-fat shredded cheese. 4. A smoothie blended from exotic fruits, some low-fat yogurt and a spoonful of wheat germ. 5. Whole-wheat crackers with low-fat cheese or peanut butter.
