Peanut Butter Power Breakfast

For a quick and nutritious breakfast that will keep you (and the kids) going all morning, spread a whole grain waffle, bagel, English muffin or piece of toast with a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter. Unlike butter, jelly, or cream cheese, peanut butter is loaded up with plenty of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. Top with a sliced banana or a small handful of raisins--or grab a piece of fresh fruit to eat on the side--and you have a complete, well-balanced breakfast that will keep you satisfied, energized, and focused. Creamy or crunchy, it doesn't matter--but you want to choose a brand with a minimum of added sugar and salt. Look for peanut butter with no more than 2 grams of sugar and 100 mg of sodium per serving.
