RECIPES: Soy Sausages, Tofu Scramble

By Rae Udy

Mom is right. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
September is Better Breakfast Month and the beginning of school is a great time to get the family into a routine of eating a healthy breakfast each morning.
Many school districts around the country recognize this unofficial holiday as a way to promote the importance of eating breakfast, especially for school-age children and young adults.
The University of Minnesota School of Public Health Project followed 2,200 adolescents to examine how breakfast eating could effect body weight change during a five-year study.
Eating Among Teens or EAT researchers found daily breakfast eaters consumed a healthier diet overall and were also more physically active than teens who skipped breakfast.
After five years, the breakfast eaters tended to gain less weight and have a lower body mass index, which is an indicator of obesity risk.
In the past two decades, the rates of obesity in children have doubled and almost tripled in teens. It is estimated between 12 and 24 percent of children and adolescents regularly skip breakfast.
The principle investigator of Project EAT, Dianne Neumark-Sztainer, Ph.D., says, “Eating a healthy breakfast may help adolescents avoid overeating later in the day and disrupt unhealthy eating patterns, such as eating a lot late in the evening.”
This research confirms the importance of encouraging good breakfast eating habits to children, young and old. Start the morning off right with Soy Sausage and Tofu Scramble to enjoy a cholesterol-free breakfast that is inexpensive but high in protein and low in fat.
Make these vegetarian patties or links in bulk and freeze. Microwave in 30 seconds for a quick breakfast or heat in the oven to top a pizza, add to spaghetti sauce or stuff a biscuit sandwich.
