Think outside the cereal box

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you skip breakfast because you're tired of the same old thing, let lunch or dinner be your inspiration. Instead of dry cereal or toast, top a microwaved potato with broccoli and grated Parmesan cheese. Or try a whole-wheat sandwich with lean meat and low-fat cheese. Leftover vegetable pizza, vegetable chili, and a whole-wheat pita stuffed with water-packed tuna and cucumbers also are good options. With a little creativity, breakfast can be healthy, convenient and fun, especially if you think outside the box.
