Breakfast is a fabulous meal to eat well for good health. However, just because eating breakfast can be “a good thing”, it's not always easy to make healthy choices. Unfortunately, some of the typical breakfast choices we can make these days can be high in saturated and/or trans-fats, over-loaded with refined sugar, high in salt and low in dietary fibre. Culprits can include bacon, sausages, breakfast breads, rolls and pastries and even apparently “healthy” cereals.  My Easy Low Fat and Low Cholesterol Healthy Brunch & Breakfast Eats Recipe Cookbook helps with this dilemma, providing over 55 Easy & Healthy Recipes for breakfast & brunch.
