It's considered the most important meal of the day, yet over 30 million Americans skip breakfast each morning citing a lack of time and/or not being hungry as their primary excuse. For the life of me, I will never understand the "I'm not hungry" rationale. I'm pretty sure I dream about breakfast. With that, here are four quick and easy breakfast recipes to get your day off on the right foot.
Scrambled Eggs with Toast
Overview: The all American breakfast minus the crispy, delicious, and wildly unhealthy bacon. While I like to consider myself a capable chef, my scrambled eggs were mediocre at best before watching this video from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay:
Serving Size: 1
Knob of unsalted butter
Splash of milk
Crack two eggs into a small saucepan
Place a knob of butter into the saucepan with two cracked eggs
Heat the stove top to medium and place saucepan on top
With a simple spatula begin whisking the eggs (you want to constantly be mixing the eggs throughout the 2-3 minute cooking process)
Take it off the heat for 30 seconds, continuing to stir the eggs
Place back on the heat for 45 seconds adding a touch of milk for extra fluffy eggs
Add a pinch of salt
Remove from the heat and continue to stir for 30 more seconds
Place eggs on top of the toast and enjoy the deliciousness
Overview: How can anything stuck between two english muffins be bad?
Half an Avocado
Whole Grain English Muffin
1 Slice of Cheese (Provolone, Pepper Jack, or other)
Toast your English Muffin (if you have a toaster oven, place the cheese on top of the English Muffin halfway through the toasting process).
Place a saucepan on medium heat.
Drizzle in a little olive oil.
Crack an egg into the saucepan
Season one side of the egg with a pinch of salt and a touch of black pepper.
After 1 minute flip the egg over to the other side and cook for 1 more minute.
Slice a half of an avocado and place onto one side of the toasted English Muffin.
Place your cooked egg on top of the English Muffin with the melted cheese.
Fold together and enjoy your Egg Sando with a cup of Joe
Feel free to get creative. I threw a little steak on there and some sautéed spinach. It was super tasty!
Kitchen Sink Power Smoothie

Handful of Almonds
1 Scoop of Pure Weigh Protein Powder
Handful of Spinach
Handful of Kale
Half of an Apple
Handful of Carrots
Handful of Frozen Berries
