Breakfast on the Barbie
By Shannon Clark If you're a barbecue fanatic, you'll be happy to know the Coleman is not just for burgers. There are many creative, delicious ways to enjoy your grill and not break the calorie bank. Exhibit A: breakfast!
I'm serious! Think outside the cereal box and fire up the grill. You'll be surprised how healthy, yummy, and easy it is to make breakfast on the barbecue. Here are 5 simple recipes to get you started. Once you feel comfortable cooking breakfast on the patio, you'll never look back!
1 / Rise 'N' Shine Pizza
Guiltlessly enjoy pizza for breakfast. This version is full of fiber; vitamins C, B-6 and K, calcium, phosphorous, and selenium. It also has a great balance of carbs, proteins, and fats to help you start the day right.
Simple and delicious, a ham-and-cheese griller offers a great source of protein and calcium. Add Popeye's favorite veggie to enjoy an exhaustive list of vitamins and minerals like A, K, potassium, and iron. You'll be out the door quickly with a smile on your face, since you didn't force yourself through another bowl of bland oats.
Finally, a parfait that tastes as great as it looks! Skip the frozen berries and mushy granola and grill up something fresh. The colorful fruit means a delicious dose of fiber and antioxidants. Add some almonds and you'll also get healthy fats and protein.
French toast is a classic breakfast favorite, but it's not really part of a healthy nutrition plan. With the right substitutions however, you can re-introduce it into your fit diet! Since this is a carb-heavy meal, try adding a few slices of turkey bacon or a protein shake for more balanced nutrition.
