A Healthy Breakfast! Just What The Doctor Ordered

Any doctor (and your Mom) will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  To help you live well and stay well, Summit Medical Group has started a new on line recipe log with healthy options to cook and serve. Registered dietitian, Susan Canonico, RD, reviews each recipe and provides important nutrition information to help you get the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals you need.

The Summit Medical Group also wants to hear from you and add your most delicious – and of course – healthy recipes! If you have healthy suggestions you would like to share, please email kprice@smgnj.com with your healthy recipe. If your recipe meets the registered dietitian’s criteria, they will feature it on their  site!

In the meantime, here is one of our favorite SMG breakfast recipes, Healthy Breakfast Burritos.  Its quick and easy to make, and children and adults love it.  Click here to see other breakfast recipes, as well as healthy lunch, dinner, snack and even dessert options!
