Editor's E-Note
Getting Your ‘Breakfast’ Plate In Shape

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It jump-starts your metabolism, renews your energy, and fills your body with much-needed vitamins and minerals to last you ’til lunchtime.

In this month’s E-News Exclusive, Today’s Dietitian spoke with RDs who discuss the importance of breakfast and how to turn popular calorie-laden morning fare that Americans love to eat into lower-calorie, nutritious options. Plus, we tell you about some of the new, healthful breakfast products now sold in grocery stores.

If you’d like to read more about this all-important morning meal, check out the feature article “Best Breakfasts From Around the World” in the March issue of Today’s Dietitian. We interviewed RDs who discuss a variety of breakfast meals from Turkey, Costa Rica, and other parts of the world that are nutritious as well as delicious. If you’re not a subscriber of the magazine, you can read the digital version here.

Be sure to visit Today’s Dietitian’s website at www.TodaysDietitian.com. You’ll find great news and information that’s relevant and reliable to daily practice. We welcome your feedback at TDeditor@gvpub.com. Enjoy the e-newsletter and follow Today’s Dietitian on Facebook and Twitter!

Healthful Breakfast Makeovers
By Juliann Schaeffer

Dietitians share ideas on how to transform high-fat, high-calorie breakfasts into more healthful fare.

The many benefits of eating a regular breakfast is likely old news to dietitians, but the meal’s significance for clients’ overall wellness is worth restating. “It’s been shown that eating breakfast is a key habit of a healthful lifestyle,” says Connie Guttersen, RD, PhD, author of The Sonoma Diet and Kraft Foods' spokesperson. “Breakfast not only gives you a jump-start on getting the energy you need to start the day but, depending on your food choices, it also can provide key nutrients for health, such as calcium from dairy, B vitamins, iron, and fiber. Studies also show that those who eat breakfast have a better overall diet quality.”

Yet, despite these and other advantages, a regular breakfast routine is hardly commonplace for many families in the United States today. Guttersen notes that more than 50% of Americans report skipping breakfast regularly.
