Dietician Tips!

Breakfast on the Go


We are all busy and in a hurry especially in the mornings.  Breakfast is still the most important meal of the day.  We need that energy to get us through the morning.  It can also help decrease how much we eat the rest of the day.

Try a breakfast cookie with a boiled egg and 1 cup skim milk, or a cooked egg of two slices of 7 grain bread. 

2 breakfast cookies        160 calories
1 boiled egg                       78 calories
1 cup skim milk with coffee  90 calories    
     Total calories      328 calories

Here is the recipe for No Bake Breakfast Cookies

½ cup honey or light corn syrup
½ cup non fat dry milk powder
½ cup raisins
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 ½ cups crushed flaked cereal (bran flakes)

Directions: 1. Heat honey and peanut butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir until blended.  2. Remove from heat.  Stir in dry milk.  3. Fold in cereal and raisins. Drop by heaping Tablespoons onto waxed paper to form mounds.  4. Cool to room temperature.  Store in refrigerator.  Makes 12 cookies.
2 cookies are 160 calories, 5 gm fat, 110 mg Sodium, 26 gms CHO, 1 gm fiber and 4 gms protein.

New Years Recipes!

As an added bonus this year, the dietitians at LCRH will be offering helpful tips and recipes throughout the contest! Be sure you subscribe to the blog for updates so you don't miss anything!

Happy New Year, it is a new year and we can start
Fresh and new.

Grandma always told us to eat some new cabbage and black eyed peas for
New Years and we would have a safe and good year.




Well, here is my New Years day menu:

½ cup Steamed new cabbage with onion, carrots and basil
½ cup Black eyed peas
3 oz. Baked pork loin
1 – 2x2 piece Cornbread
1 small apple sliced
Tea with monk fruit sweetener

Calories are approximately 476 calories

Tips: If you add fat to the vegetables this is 45 calories per tsp.
         Bake or slow cook the pork loin with herbs and spices
         Use fresh herbs and spices to add antioxidants and nutrients

Steamed Cabbage
½ head new green cabbage, chopped
½ bag carrots, sliced
½ onion, chopped
1 tsp. chopped basil

Chop all vegetables to bite sized pieces, add basil.  Place in large pot with 1 inch water in  the bottom.
Steam until vegetables are crisp tender.
½ cup is ~ 30 calories.  If you add any oil or fat this is additional 45 calories per tsp.


Have a Happy New Year. Cindy Hatcher MS,RDN,LD
