On the first day of Christmas, my dietitian told me…
To start my day off with a healthy breakfast!
Just because you know you will be indulging in a lot of great food on Christmas Eve and Christmas day doesn’t mean you should skip breakfast. By eating a healthy breakfast, your body will get the energy it needs to start the day. You will need all the energy you can get in order to wrap all those gifts, get your kids ready, cook for the dinner at your house or anything you offered to bring to someone else’s gathering, and shovel the snow that is essential to a White Christmas. Try starting your day off with a hot bowl of oatmeal, and get the whole family to share this breakfast together. Oatmeal is a great food that will keep you feeling full throughout the morning. Try this recipe, you will love it!
