Breakfast Recipes w/Fat-Burning Food Combos

Each of the below breakfast recipes contains at least two "Power Foods" for a metabolism boost FAT BURNING POWER! Eat within 1 hour of arising in a.m. to stoke your metabolism fire.
Greek Yogurt Parfait
1 Container Greek Yogurt (Costco has it)
1/2 c. dry oats
3/4 c. frozen berries
7 walnuts
Combine & Stir
*You can use vanilla yogurt instead of Greek Yogurt, but Greek Yogurt is on the top of the Fat-Burning Power Foods because it's a perfect ratio of carbs:protein. Normal yogurt is too high in carbs and too low in protein. So just watch labels if you choose to use normal yogurt instead of Greek yogurt. Costco sells a flat of Greek yogurt - flavors: blueberry, strawberry, peach. I just use flavored in the place of vanilla Greek yogurt.

Fat-Burning Oatmeal
1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
2/3 c. vanilla soy milk or nonfat milk
1/2 - 1 tsp. cinnamon
8 walnuts
Combine oats & milk. Cook. Stir in cinnamon & walnuts. Add a little brown sugar to taste :)

Peanut Butter & Banana Muffin
1 1/2 Tbs. Natural Peanut Butter (I like Adam's brand)
1/2 sliced banana
1 Whole Wheat English Muffin

(Make sure the 1st ingredient is not enriched-bleached flour - "Enriched means that the wheat has been stripped of it's nutritional value & fiber, which means your "Insulin Ambulance" is gonna have to come to the rescue - see my earlier post re: the "Insulin Ambulance")

Toast your muffin, spread with peanut butter and top with banana.
