- Granola with unsweetened yogurt (about half and half, maybe less granola) is a nice breakfast and granola with unsweetened yogurt and fruit is a very nice breakfast. If that’s too tart for you, a little sugar brings out the creamy qualities of the yogurt.
- My frittata are simple, just some chopped onion in beaten egg with a dollop of milk or water, and maybe a handful of spinach on top just before I turn it over.
If you don’t like to cook, the microwave oven is your friend. I can
- cook medallions of potato or sweet potato to eat hot with butter
- make 2 pieces of toast, place cheese in between, and zap for 25 seconds to make a low-fat “grilled cheese” sandwich
- cook a “coddled” egg in 40 seconds (beat with a small dollop of water, cook in small, straight-sided dish) and have it alone or on toast. (Butter the dish first if you don’t like scrubbing.)
- bake a potato in a few minutes (pierce the skin all over first so it doesn’t explode)
As you can see, my standards are pretty low when I don’t feel like cooking, but it’s all adequate and nutritious.
If you like fruit salad, any three kinds of fruit, with orange juice as a dressing, makes a nice salad. It takes about a minute to quarter, core, and chop an apple, even less time to peel and slice a banana, and you can “peel” an orange very fast by cutting off the skin with a large, sharp knife.
