Healthy Dinner Idea: How About Breakfast?

Sometimes it can be so hard to come up with exciting ideas for dinner, so a couple times a month, my family and I like to have breakfast for dinner — the girls love it. It's not just because we love breakfast foods, but they're also high in fiber and protein, so they're healthy, too. Check out the nutritional info for some simple breakfast meals.

I have had, on occasion, an omelette for dinner. It just makes sense sometimes and it's comforting.

I eat eggs for dinner a lot. They're nice and easy and I usually just eat them scrambled with salsa on them. Pretty tasty!
