The importance of a good breakfast cannot be overstated. Breakfast fuels your body for the day and reduces feelings of hunger for the rest of the day (especially if the breakfast includes protein). Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast are healthier than those who don't.
The key to a great, healthy breakfast is to find foods that you love, which are also low-calorie and easy to make. This cookbook contains recipes for a wide variety of foods, for just about every taste. All are under 250 calories per serving. To make a more hearty meal, you could add one (8 oz.) glass of skim milk and a half glass (4 oz.) of orange juice, if desired.
All recipes include calories, fat, fiber, carbs, and protein content per serving.
Important note: this is not a cookbook with zero calorie (or near-zero calorie) recipes. The very nature of these recipes and their ingredients mean that the calorie count will never be zero, or even close to it. Those looking for minimal calorie recipes are advised to seek commercial preparations specifically made for very low calorie diets.
Also, these recipes are not necessarily low-carb. With healthy ingredients such as fat-free milk and fruits, they often include GOOD carbs.
