Jason Donnelly

We used quinoa to boost the fiber and protein in this sauté-inspired dish. Instead of making an omelet or scrambled eggs like you would fried rice, we cook them in wedges directly into vegetable-stuffed quinoa for a fun presentation. Opt for a flat pan over a wok so you have plenty of room for the eggs to nestle.

Frozen Whole Grain Waffles are the perfect foundation for a nutritious breakfast that tastes like a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. We use crunchy peanut butter for added texture, but you can swap for creamy if you prefer. If fresh berries aren\’t available, you can use frozen ones; microwave them in a small bowl for about 30 seconds to defrost them before adding them to your sandwich.
