WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 8, 1997 POOD THE SALINA JOURNAL Morning / Try to eat 5 grams of fiber PROM PAGE ci Is it really worth all that trouble? Why not just skip breakfast? "Getting breakfast can make a difference in your attention Span," whether you're a child or fen adult, said Maureen Maaske, a dietitian who works at the Milwaukee Medical Clinic. Many medical studies have shown that people manage their weight better if they don't skip breakfast and if they eat throughout the day rather than at one ; time, she said. Most experts advise combining a protein and carbohydrate for breakfast, such as the classic cereal and milk, or toast and yogurt. Try to get at least 5 grams of fiber in the morning meal, Maaske advises. "Getting that much fiber in the morning may make a difference" in how long breakfast keeps you satisfied and how long it takes for your appetite to return, she said. When Maaske speaks at schools or to other groups of children, she asks them to think about their toys and uses an analogy to which they can relate. "Breakfast can get your batteries charged, get your body going again," she said. She also encourages children to take matters into their own hands. "Kids are not getting breakfast because there's no one doing it for them — mom's off getting ready for work — but there are a lot of things kids can do for themselves," she said. Her own children love to take flour tortillas, spread them with peanut butter, sprinkle cinnamon sugar or raisins, and roll them up for a fast, no-cook morning meal or after-school snack. A cheese and fruit tray is another favorite for grab-and-run breakfasts. Here are some other ideas: Breakfast Pizza 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, white or wheat 1 cup each, toppings of your choice: steamed or microwaved broccoli florets, diced or sliced red or green peppers, sliced black olives, sliced mushrooms, cooked scrambled eggs, diced Canadian bacon, breakfast sausage links or ham 6 to 8 ounces shredded V FUN WITH FOOD Scripps Howard News Service Overnight coffee cake can be prepared ahead of time to provide a fast alternative to the usual cereal or bagel. mozzarella or cheddar-mozzarella blend Just before you go to bed, lightly spray a pizza pan with vegetable oil spray, set loaf of frozen bread dough on it, spray top of loaf with vegetable spray and cover with wax paper; let stand at room temperature overnight to rise. In the morning, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread dough to form pizza crust, handling as little as possible. Sprinkle on toppings of your choice; top with cheese. Bake in preheated oven about 20 minutes. Makes 1 pizza, about 4 servings.

By ANN CRISWELL Houston Chronicle Yes, we know you were always admonished, "Don't play with your food." But who could resist after seeing food through the eyes of Joost Elffers in "Play With Your Food" (Stewart, Tabori & Chang, $19.95). Elffers turns long-necked squash into ducks, geese and swans; grapes jointed with grape-stem tegs are transformed into ants; a pair of snow-pea ears turns a green pepper into a floppy-eared bunny. A trip to the produce counter becomes a trip to the zoo. Take a new look: You'll discover baby pigs in Brussels sprouts; turtles in melons and pineapples; comic faces in pumpkins, oranges, pnions, chay- ote (a gourdlike fruit also known as mirliton), pears and peppers. Pea pods, beans and okra pods become praying mantises, ants, caterpillars and grasshoppers. Radishes turn into mice with wispy tails. Perhaps you'll agree with Elffers that the pumpkin stem is the rightful nose — Halloween will never be the same. After your critter creations have served their purpose as decorations and centerpieces, they can still be eaten — maybe to tempt a child's lagging appetite or create conversation at the dinner table. Elffers says the goal is to produce new images suggested by fruits and vegetables themselves with a minimum of alteration: a slit here for the mouth, two slices there for raised ears, two holes for eyes. A stem might become a tongue or nose; a root cluster, hair or a beard. Here are some suggestions for creating your own menagerie: Eyes: beans, grapes, olives, whole cloves, strawberry slices, black-eyed peas; slits cut with a knife. Noses: natural stems or other protuberances, roots (can also be mustaches), stalks. Ears: leaves (such as artichoke leaves), pieces cut from each side and folded out (roll carefully to prevent tearing), pieces cut from other vegetables or fruits and inserted into slits (prop up with toothpicks).
