Potluck

I'm working for another week and my colleagues have decided to have a going away lunch. I said pick whatever, but they were persistant...so, I picked a potluck. Not just any potluck, I decided we needed a theme and since the most important meal of the day is breakfast, our potluck will be a "Breakfast Theme." Now, I just need to come up with something that I will bring to make sure that I have something half way healthy as a choice. I know there will be plenty of grease and carbs as people have signed up to bring hash browns, sausage, bacon, blueberry pancakes, a breakfast casserole of eggs, sausage, cheese, etc, and orange juice.

What would you suggest for a healthy choice at a breakfast potluck?

Fresh fruit and cottage cheese, whole grain muffins,
baked apples,
low fat cheese slices with apple slices,
a slow cooker filled with hot oatmeal...

A big bowl of yogurt and a selection of toppers: fresh fruit and a low-fat granola. It looks pretty and people love it. Heck...even Martha Stewart does it for her breakfast buffets!

I like everyone's suggestions. You can't go wrong with fruit. Maybe a platter of healthy breakfast burritos and salsa?

I say enjoy your potluck....it's for you! You can always walk it off the next day ;)

My suggestion was definitely going to be a fresh fruit salad. Adding some low calorie yogurt and granola would also be great so people could make a "fruit sundae". Yum!

I was also going to say fruit salad. I used to do melon balls on long toothpicks for the kids when they would take snack to preschool. Like a fruit kabob.

I'd have to say a big fruit salad! Everyone loves fruit :)

how about the Apple Berry salsa recipe I sent? I can eat that for EVERY meal of the day.

Enjoy your last days at the office because soon you'll really be working when you're at home!

Go Brewers!!
Love you all,

I'd say high fiber bran muffins might be your best bet especially in an office setting. :)

Lots of good suggestions here. I'm also in favor of lots of fruit, and I like the idea of nice egg scramble using egg beaters/egg whites and loaded up with lots of veggies and chopped up Canadian bacon and maybe some low-fat cheese.

Im too late BUT you got some great responses!

may I ask if youd ponder a guest post for me? something using your music insights? mood and music? soothing ourselves through music?

I know you are BUSYBUSY so simply think about it but, as a woman who was thisclose to becoming a music therapist, I so believe in the power of music.

Never to late for potluck suggestions. The potluck is actually on Tuesday, so I'm still deciding. May have to bring a few things.
