BREAKFAST FOR DINNER
“It’s as easy as heating up a whole-grain waffle, topping with peanut butter, and dumping on some blueberries. Or I’ll enjoy a big bowl of whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk and fruit. Easy and no fuss!” —Joy Bauer, M.S., R.D., the nutrition and health expert for NBC’s TODAY Show and founder of NourishSnacks
“I have a roster of five-ingredient, five-minute recipes that I rotate throughout the week. My favorite is a super-quick fish and veggies dish: Sear a filet of fish—I love a chunky piece of black cod—skin-side down. Then scatter your favorite veggies around the filet. It’s ridiculously easy, quick, and is a great source of protein, healthy fats, and vegetables.” —Michelle Davenport, Ph.D., R.D., a Silicon Valley nutritionist
“They are so easy to whip up and are packed full of nutrients. I can toss in some baby greens and even add cooked grains or beans, which I try to keep on-hand in the fridge. Hummus and veggies or rice thins is another favorite.” —Katie Cavuto, M.S., R.D., the dietician for the Phillies and the Flyers
