I’d be so into trying Kerr’s breakfast smoothie which would give me “maximum energy and vitality” like a supermodel, but I don’t have blender right now, so I’m out of luck. More
The weather’s insufferably fickle this early spring, which means cold and hot breakfasts are still in order. But not the stick-to-your-bones kind of hot breakfasts that winter called for; spring–even when it’s 40 degrees and cold showering — demands a little bit lighter fare.

What’s better on a cold morning than a nice warm bowl of oatmeal, right? How about a healthier version of one of our favorite comfort foods? While the oats themselves are a good choice of complex carbohydrates, the flavored oatmeals and the toppings we add can turn a nutritious breakfast into a not-so-nutritious one. That’s because some instant oatmeals are loaded with sugar and salt. Other times, we are tempted to add our own brown sugar or syrup to sweeten up the pot. A little is OK, of course, but we have some other ways to make a healthier bowl of oatmeal tomorrow morning.
On his quest to get New York City residents skinny, Mayor Bloomberg is once again saying, no more food for you. This time it’s to low-income kids who he wants to prevent from eating too much breakfast at school–because, you know, fat kids are more of a concern than hungry ones. More
I’ve had a serious problem with breakfast lately: I feel my best when I eat one high in protein, but I’m sick to death of eggs. I know I’m not the only one; I’ve talked to women in my office who feel the same, and even noticed fitness model Jamie Eason complaining of the same thing on her Facebook page earlier this week.

Most of you probably know that soda contains sugar; there are plenty of astounding PSAs and photos drive home the point. But a lot of us frequently dine on foods that we think of as “healthy” that can be just as much of a sugar bomb, if not more. Case in point: breakfast. Even if you steer clear of donuts and pastries that are full of sugar (duh), and make what you think are pretty smart choices, many breakfast foods contain a load of sugar you didn’t know you were in for.

Daylight Savings Time is here early this year, so on Sunday, March 11, it’s time to spring forward. Which means we lose an hour of sleep…or an hour of time for breakfast prep. We think you should stay in bed, so we found ten quick breakfast recipes to help you spring forward. More
In the last few years, there’s been a lot of attention paid to school lunches, which many low-income kids rely on to get adequate nutrition, and to learn healthy habits that will help them in their adult lives. But there’s been a lot less focus on “the most important meal of the day”–despite the fact that, nationwide, 11.7 million kids eat breakfast at school every day. Growing up, I was one of them, and I can tell you that most days, school breakfast consisted of donuts or sugary cereal. This week is National School Breakfast Week, which makes it a perfect time to talk about the misinformation and huge nutrition gap that’s facing the first meal. More
