The (Healthier) Breakfast Flowchart
In an effort to make Mom proud, Chow Bella's taking a good, hard look at the most important meal of the day in the form of Scrambled, a mashup of breakfast recipes, news and reviews of local restaurants serving the a.m. crowd.
Over here at the Phoenix New Times, we're big fans of flowcharts, like this one on Jackalope Ranch last week.
We found this one all about breakfast and thought it was clever and actually quite helpful when you've stumbled out of bed and know you should be eating something but just aren't quite set on what to make.
It's this visual hand holder that helps you arrive at such balanced and innovative choices as miso soup, toast with coconut oil and fruit or hot kamut with cocoa powder, pecans and figs.
So much more creative than your big bowl of cereal plans, right? And more balanced with the chart nudging you to add more protein, fiber, fat and fruit to your choices.
Check out the post that discusses how this choose your own adventure style chart came to be over at EatingRules.com. Eating Rules is written by Andrew Wilder who through a series of health challenges found that eating whole foods and getting some exercise in (he likes yoga and running) that he was able to drop some pounds and reverse his recurring acne. High five, Andrew Wilder!
