In the sweltering days of summer, the last thing I want to do is cook anything over a hot stove. It’s the perfect time for those easy breakfasts where no heat is required.

Smoothies
It’s as simple as placing your ingredients in a blender and pushing a button. The only caveat is to watch portions so you don’t go overboard on calories.

Parfaits
Yogurt layered with your favorite healthy ingredients (including nuts, seeds, granola, whole-grain cereal and fruit) makes a light and cool breakfast.

Sandwiches
Simple ingredients stacked between bread can form a deliciously healthy morning meal.

TELL ME: What’s your favorite no-cook breakfast?

    My favorite no cook breakfast is yogurt, 2/3 all bran buds, fresh blueberries (or other berries).

    My favorite breakfast "pudding" is 1 cup Greek or Bulgarian yogurt. 1 teasponn Ceylon cinnamon. 1 teaspoon tumeric. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. i tablespoon organic unsulphured molasses. Gobs of potassium, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, copper. Lowers BP. Kicks up metabolism. Reduces inflammation. Heals the intestinal tract. Know this sounds like a weird combo but it tastes surprisingly good. If you are celiac or gluten intolerant, use full fat yogurt.

    NUTTY CARSINS: Good for lunch OR breakfast: spread a piece of whole wheat bread (or toast) with 1-2 T. peanut butter. Sprinkle grated carrots (about 2 T) over the peanut butter and with the back of a spoon, gently press the grated carrot into the peanut butter so it won't fall off. Finish up by sprinkling 2-3 T of golden raisins over everything. (I like to first plump the raisins by putting them in a small bowl of warm water or orange juice while I'm assembling the rest of the sandwich.)
