Hi Amanda


Sounds like you are doing well, and just need some minor adjustments.

> Here is what I've been eating for breakfast: cold cereal ( whole grain, no additives) , soy milk, and fruit. But I realize the cereal is processed

Correct. And very calorie dense. If you want to stay with a "cereal" I would recommend oats, or barley as they have the most soluble fiber which most of us can benefit from getting more of.

>>and the soy milk is 50% fat.

I would need to know more about which one your using to say anything. If you go to a hot cereal, you wont have to worry about this as you can make them without milk.

>>Your comments, please, on what is the healthiest way to start the day?

As long as you are not a unmanaged diabetic, a nice brisk walk outdoors! :)

>>I was thinking about raw nuts, for a better quality fat, and fruit...

You do not need a better quality fat. You need better quality foods. :)

BTW, Oatmeal is 16% fat.

I think a homemade fresh fruit smoothie or a nice bowl of fresh fruit/berries or a whole grain unprocessed cereal topped with lots of fresh fruit and berries is great.

if you want to add a TB of ground flax or a 1/2 ounce of English walnuts to the smoothie or oatmeal, that would be fine. And some cinnamon also if you like.

There are recipes for all these at my website under the recipe, breakfast section.
