While my current favorite breakfast is Swiss muesli with five fruits (depending on the season), topped by either yogurt or milk, my brothers and I thought we were getting away with something when we dashed out the door to school with two handfuls of Wheat Germ cookies. I would now substitute honey for the brown sugar, and reduce the overall amount, but I have not made this in years (decades).

3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 cup wheat germ
3 cups whole wheat flout
1 cup powdered dry milk
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. black strap molasses
1 tsp. salt

Mix together. Add dates, raisins or nuts (etc.) to own taste.

Bake 350 degrees for 7-12 minutes until just set.

Poached eggs, sprouted multi grain toast, real butter, low sodium tomato juice.
** mid morning snack - yogurt or soy yogurt with fresh berries

Smoked white fish, whole wheat mini bagel, Neufchatel cheese, tomato & cucumber slices.
** mid morning snack - fresh pear & slice of turkey meat

Old fashioned oatmeal with dates & apricots, almonds & real maple syrup; milk or soymilk.
** mid morning snack - string cheese and orange

Fresh peaches, tofu, & crumbled graham crackers sprinkled with cinnamon.
** mid morning snack - bell pepper strips & Muenster cheese

Peanut butter on whole grain toast with unsweetened fruit spread, hot spiced tea diluted with apple cider
** mid morning snack - jicama slices with hummus

I always combine a protein with a fruit to avoid carb rebound when planning my daily food intake.
I also believe in mini-meals thru out the day so I combine the meal & a snack when balancing my nutritional intake. One serving of a Vitamin C rich fruit or veg; plenty of bright colors; lots of whole grains including spelt, Barilla Plus & whole grain pastas; limited dairy products. If I eat refined sugars in baked goods, I try to eat them with grains so as to minimize the effects. (Oatmeal raisin cookies with nuts versus a Hershey bar or NY cheesecake with fruit) If I must have that chocolate bar, I drink some soy or nut milk with it. Mostly, I find that drinking a chocolate protein drink gets me past most of the temptations in life.

I eat heavier meals during the day while I'm busy and lighter in the evening where I'm not likely to be very active, I have every reason to be unhealthy but I love me so I take care of the only body I got...I'm 47 and feeling like 25.

Once a month I make a large pan (15x10) of "breakfast bread pudding" . Let it cool then cut and wrap in parchment paper single servings then freeze freezer bag. It freezes very well and reheats in the microwave on 70% in about 4 minutes.
