Fruit-and-Oat Meal

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Mike bought me a great book during my first pregnancy called "Eating Well When You're Expecting". All the recipes inside are full of vitamins and nutrients you wouldn't normally think go together (Like adding nuts to your oatmeal for extra protein in your diet). They are little things to make the most of your meals. This is a healthy all-inclusive breakfast that actually tastes good. It has 1 serving calcium, 1 serving yellow fruit, 1/2 serving protein, 1/2 serving other fruit, 1 1/2 serving whole grains. Thank you Mike for introducing me to such a great book!
