Breakfast in Under 250 Calories

The most important meal of the day, right?
Well I believe every meal is important, but it's also important to start off on the right foot.

Enter one of my favorite new products:  Smucker's Low-Sugar Jams.  They're not Sugar Free (ie, full of splenda), but they just don't add any additional sugar.  The result is a product that has a higher water content/is less gelatinous....which means... it is perfect for mixing. 

I take my Brown Cow Plain Non-Fat Yogurt (I haven't seen it, but I know they also have a plain greek yogurt that has 15 grams of protein per serving!!) and make any flavor I want (they only have Blueberry, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Lemon flavors) by adding the jams.

I make a parfait out of it using 1/2 cup of Fiber One Original cereal (I can pre-mix the yogurt flavor in a 2-cup container and then add the cereal in the morning--but use the original -- the others don't mix well and/or have a higher sugar content) and whatever fruit I might have on hand, such as fresh strawberries. 

1 cup plain non-fat Brown cow yogurt = 110 calories (that's 10 grams of protein!)
1 tbsp low-sugar Smuckers Jam = 25 calories (not bad if you have a sweet tooth and/or don't like the flavor of yogurt)
1/2 cup Fiber One Original = 60 calories (57% of the daily recommended fiber for a 2000 calorie diet)
1 cup strawberries = 46 calories (that's between 1 and 2 servings!)

= 241 calories for a very filling breakfast
