So sorry about your mom. Please get yearly mammograms for yourself, with that kind of history.
BREAKFAST: make these fabulous muffins, filled with sausage,eggs & cheese. I use Morningstar veggie sausage patties, just microwave, then cut up. If you need someone to order the Tastefully Simple Bountiful Beer Bread Mix from, let me know. It is fabulous in these breakfast muffins, and just as directed on the box!
Breakfast on the Go!
8 eggs, or equivalent egg substitute
Black pepper to taste
Bountiful Beer Bread Mix®
1 lb. browned, drained ground breakfast sausage
12 oz. beer (lemon lime seltzer is great, too)
1 1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Mix eggs and pepper; scramble in skillet. Combine bread mix and beer (or seltzer); add well drained sausage, eggs and cheese. Bake in greased muffin tins at 375° for about 35 minutes or until done. Makes 14-18 servings that freeze great! Just take out of freezer the night before, thaw in fridge, and microwave to eat “on the go!”
LUNCH: My 9 y.o. son's picky, too.
1. Try a whole wheat wrap with peanut butter and a small sliced banana (that'd be good for breakfast, too!)
2. Reduced-sodium soup or
3. the 'least bad for you' spaghettios/raviolis you can find, in a thermos bowl
4. Salsa (veggie loaded, if she'll eat it- again, Tastefully Simple's Corn, Black Bean Salsa is mild, kid-friendly, and loaded with corn, beans and tomatoes) with pita chips, her baby carrots, or just cut your whole wheat wraps into triangles or strips with a pizza cutter, and bake them to crispiness the next time your oven's on for something else. Kids love to dip, and that way, you can cut down the sodium.
Best of luck to you ~ I actually got some great ideas to try on my son here, too, so thanks for the post!
