This morning, I’m having a cup of cottage cheese mixed with fruit and some Bran Buds, which add a nice crunch!

Broiled Salmon with Steamed Broccoli

Spray your broiling pan with non-stick cooking spray and place the salmon fillets on it.  Sprinkle fillets with lemon pepper or coarse sea salt, or seasoning of your choice.  Broil 4-6 inches from heat until fish flakes and is opaque.  Meanwhile, steam broccoli florets 5-8 minutes or until tender.  Serve with a green salad.

It’s a simple dinner, but the kids love it!

Wednesday breakfast

We’re supposed to have snow here today, and what better on a cold winter morning than a nice hot bowl of steel-cut oats?  Add some fruit and a scoop of protein powder for a tasty, filling breakfast.
