Every year around this time I start thinking about healthier changes I could make in the New Year. It seems like a perfect time to get back on track after all the treats over the holidays. In the past, drinking more water and making green smoothies have been on my healthier new year list. My goal is not striving for perfection but making more attainable changes.
This year I’ve decided to direct my attention on breakfast and reduce the amount of sugary cereals on the table. I want to focus more on quality ingredients for my whole family. Introducing Tre Stelle cheese will be a deliciously easy change! Cheese is one of the richest sources of calcium helping to build bone density and the high-quality protein in cheese provides essential building blocks for strong muscles. Adding Tre Stelle cheese also guarantees my kids will eat. It just makes everything better!
When we don’t have time to sit down for breakfast it’s handy to be able to grab something and go such as muffins or scones. To cut down on butter and oil I use Tre Stelle Ricotta to add moisture in baked goods. It’s also a great way to add a boost of protein. If you’ve never tried Ricotta Cheese in waffles definitely give it a try. The soft cheese replaces all the oil or butter and you’ll never miss it!
Peaches and Cream Overnight Oats are convenient since they are made the night before. If you don’t have peaches on hand, swap out any type of berry for a colourful burst of flavour!
