» 10 Tasty, Easy and Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Post written by Leo Babauta. You get up in the morning, you rush to get ready for work, you rush out the door without a breakfast. Perhaps you grab a bagel and cream cheese, perhaps a muffin, perhaps an Egg McMuffin. If you’re lucky, you get a pastry, a hearty breakfast of pancakes and sausage and eggs, or an English fry-up. Unfortunately, when it comes to being healthy, none of these options is a great way to start your day. Several readers asked about healthy breakfast ideas, and in truth, it’s a dilemma that many of us face each day. The first problem is a problem, because it means that you start the day with an empty stomach. The second problem is also a real problem, because traditional breakfasts don’t usually come in healthy flavors. Too sugary or carb-filled. What does that leave us with? But how do you find the time? Oatmeal, flaxseed, blueberries & almonds. Kashi Golean Crunch. Scrambled tofu. Fresh berries, yogurt, granola. Grapefruit with whole-wheat toast & almond butter.

Looking to the Dietary Gods: Eating Well According to the Ancients (Photo: H.Koppdelaney) Just a few weeks ago, I received the following from Ryan Holiday: “…in the last 6 months, I’ve lost 15 lbs and am in the best shape of my life. From adding in sprinting to my running regime, using kettle bells once a week, using a weighted vest while taking long walks, and the cat vomit exercise, I now have abs and — like I said — lost weight in places I didn’t know I was storing fat. It was all from your book and keeping to the slow-carb diet. Here’s the part I really have to thank you for: by changing the way I thought about running, I ran the fastest mile in my life, and that’s after four years of cross country and track in high school.

Homemade Pop Tarts Skip to Content May 29, 2010 Homemade Pop Tarts When I was little I always looked forward to visiting my dad’s house on the weekends and all the delicious treats he let us eat that were forbidden at home, like Pop Tarts!

So we spent a lazy morning in the kitchen giving this Homemade Pop Tarts recipe from Smitten Kitchen a try.

Bakin’ the Bacon When you’re frying a pound of bacon, do you stand over the stove, turner or tongs in hand, hot grease popping and splattering as you turn, wait, turn, wait, turn… wait? There’s a better way. The holidays are fast approaching, and with them come celebratory breakfasts, including fresh-baked sticky buns, stuffed French toast, and savory brunch casseroles of all kinds. There’s not much crisp, golden bacon doesn’t go with. In fact, I can’t think of a single breakfast dish that isn’t improved by a rasher or two of bacon. Nor can I think of a single person I know who doesn’t love bacon.
