The Diet Detective: 15 Quick and Healthy Breakfasts

If you don't eat breakfast, you'll undoubtedly eat a bit more than you normally would at your next meal. Also, you will tend to be a bit less discerning about what you eat. Most people say they just don't have time for breakfast. Well, you no longer have that excuse: Just take a look at these quick and healthy breakfasts.

Batter Blaster Ready to Cook Pancake and Waffle Batter Organic Whole Wheat with Brown Sugar and Cinnamon

I love this new product. It's really fantastic, especially if you have kids. You simply shake and then turn the can upside down and point the nozzle at the heated pan -- and presto, you have healthy pancakes (or waffles). Think of a whipped cream container. The pancakes are fun to make and have just 90 calories per serving. And the best part about this very quick breakfast is that the main ingredient is organic whole-wheat flour.

Good Food Made Simple Egg White Patties

Another great product. I toasted a piece of Ezekiel bread ( www.foodforlife.com), which is 80 calories, and topped it with this perfectly round egg white, which is only 35 calories -- wow. The patties are 100 percent natural (made only with real eggs, salt and cornstarch), and they taste great. Just put a flash-frozen patty in the microwave for 90 seconds and sprinkle with a bit of pepper -- talk about quick, healthy breakfasts!

Good Food Made Simple Organic Steel Cut Oats

These 100 percent whole-grain, steel-cut oats are slowly kettle-cooked with filtered water and salt, and flash-frozen. There are two 150-calorie servings per package. The oatmeal is just water, steel-cut oats and salt for the unsweetened, with berries or maple syrup or brown sugar added, depending on the variety.

Scrambled Egg Whites using All Whites

These liquid egg whites are a bit more expensive than eggs, but if you want quick, this is it. About 1/2 a cup, which equals three egg whites, has only 60 calories and 12 grams of protein. Use a 12-inch pan, the larger the heated surface, the quicker the cooking process. Coat the pan with cooking spray, heat it up and simply pour in the liquid whites.

Dunkin' Donuts Egg White Turkey Sausage and Cheese Wake-Up Wrap

Running in to Dunkin' Donuts and grabbing an egg white wrap and a flavored iced coffee can be a seriously tasty breakfast. The wrap is only 150 calories and has 11 grams of protein. Not a bad way to start the day. The only issue is the sodium, at 400 mg.
