Did you know that there are a TON of health benefits linked to eating breakfast?
Besides the fact that I’m always hungry in the morning anyway, I always try to make sure I eat breakfast. Recently I’ve been on an omelet kick. It’s a great way to use left over vegetables hanging out in the fridge. Some of my go to add in’s are : baby bella mushrooms, tomatoes, kale (obviously), broccoli, and turkey sausage or grilled chicken. Hold the cheese.
If you aren’t a morning person, frittata is a great alternative. You can make it ahead of time and reheat throughout the week. So there is really no excuse for skipping breakfast.
What’s Frittata? Frittata is an egg-based dished (similar to an omelet or quiche, sans the crust)
If you opt for the Frittata, a Cast Iron Skillet is a must. Why? They can go straight from the stovetop to the oven. Le Creuset has a line of Signature skillets that I would die for, but a bit pricey. If you are like me and looking for a more budget-friendly option, Target has a great skillet by Threshold. They come is a couple of different colors and sizes too!
If you’re not sold on breakfast yet, below are my top 5 benefits/reasons you should start your morning with breakfast every day:
- Energy boost to start the day
- Gets your metabolism started (if you thought you were going to lose weight by skipping breakfast, you’re wrong)
- Sharper focus
- Helps portion meals for the rest of the day (AND prevents overeating because you won’t be starving by the time lunch rolls around)
- Eggs pack protein, amino acids, and even vitamin D
