Lyssa McKenry“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

Did your mom ever say that growing up? I’ve heard it so many times I’ve lost count. But it still rings true, even if it is an overused saying. But, have you ever asked yourself why it’s so important?

Research indicates that breakfast is so important because it keeps your glucose (or sugar) levels stable. I’ve also heard many people say they need to lose weight, and follow that up with “I should skip a meal or two.” NOOO! Maintaining a healthy weight means eating small meals/snacks throughout the day that consist of quality protein. By keeping your glucose at consistent, healthy levels versus dipping and soaring, weight can be managed easier. Also, if you’re like me, I will eat more than needed when I’m starving. So don’t starve yourself because it will come back to haunt you! But, I’m no doctor, so make sure you speak with your physician.

Now, for the good part — food! If you are like me, mornings are hectic. As in, I’m too tired to care, just get me going, hectic! So having some good options that are easy to prepare can help aid with your breakfast goals.

Anyone who has chickens probably has an abundance of eggs. Eggs are a classic breakfast staple, but when combined with other non-typical foods they become unique and yummy! Here’s a recipe for you to try:
