Although a turkey feast is approaching, it’s important to fuel up the morning of Thanksgiving. A well-balanced breakfast will give you enough energy to pleasantly chat with family and friends—no need to be agitated and hungry when you see everyone. Plus, eating breakfast can keep hunger under control and keep you level-headed and ready to make more reasonable choices when it’s time for the big meal.

Breakfast Goals
Quick and simple does the trick. With all the hustle and bustle of last minute holiday prep, there’s no need to slave in the kitchen. Your goal is about a 400-500 calorie breakfast which should include whole grains, fruit, and dairy. Make sure you get in enough fiber to hold you until the holiday meal.

#1: Oatmeal
Oats are a whole grain and they’re brimming with fiber and energy-boosting B-vitamins. Cook with skim or almond milk and top with fresh fruit, nuts and spices.

#2: Eggs
There are so many ways to enjoy this protein-rich breakfast favorite. For a fun holiday twist try my recipe which includes whole grains, eggs and dairy using only 5 ingredients.

#3: Parfait
This filling 3-ingredient meal has layers of yogurt, berries and granola.

#4: Muffins
Don’t want to cook? No problem. Bake muffins up to a month before the big day and freeze. Serve with a tall glass of lowfat milk and fresh fruit on the side.

Recipe: Pumpkin Muffins

#5: Smoothies
Whip up a healthy smoothie in 5 minutes. Guy’s highly-rated version has fruit, veggies, dairy and even a green veggie! Serve with a slice of whole grain bread topped with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter.
