Peanut Buttery Oatmeal
-1½ cups steel cut oats
-½ measuring cup nut butter
-2 tbsp milk
-¼ cup honey
Mix nut butter, milk & honey. Combine with oatmeal & stir well. Spoon into 12 bowls & add apple slices to each bowl.
Food for Thought: Peanuts are not actually nuts! This protein-rich food is actually a legume (same family as peas and lentils). Peanuts are a good source of protein and heart-protecting fats!
-1 whole wheat tortilla
-1 small banana
-2 tbsp nut butter (the size of ping-pong ball)
-optional: drizzle of honey
Spread nut butter evenly on tortilla. Slice the banana into quarter-size slices and place on your pizza. Cut a slice or roll into a burrito if you are on the go!
Food for Thought: Bananas are an excellent source of potassium! Potassium helps your body stay balanced and hydrated!
-½ cup sunflower butter (or nut butter)
-½ cup honey
-¾ cup non-fat dry milk
-½ cup rice cereal
Stir ingredients together & roll into balls. That’s it!
Food for Thought: These sunflower balls are packed with energy so you only need a small amount (about one ball) to keep your energy levels up!
-¼ cup berries
-6 oz vanilla yogurt
-Water/ice as desired
Add ingredients and blend.
Food for Thought: Smoothies are a great way to get your 2-3 servings of fruit in each day! Extra bonus- they taste awesome! You can have a smoothie with your breakfast or as a healthy alternative to dessert (a way better for you choice than a milk shake)!
-Yogurt or cottage cheese
Ask an adult for help preparing rice in a rice cooker. Let rice cool. Mix in other ingredients to taste.
Food for Thought: Sick of the same old bowl of cereal for breakfast? Mix it up with a bowl of rice! Brown rice is filled with long lasting energy to help you tackle the day!
