Everyone knows and has probably heard many times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet, for some reason it’s the meal we all often skimp on. If you’re like me, it’s hard to get up in the morning and take the time to actually prepare a substantial meal. However, if you can get in the habit of doing so, I guarantee you’ll see how worth it this is. It’s the kickstart your metabolism needs to get you ready for the day.
That being said, there’s one major component that is a breakfast must. PROTEIN! You need this to start your day out right and fuel your body. I try to always include some form of protein, as well as a fruit and some kind of grain such as toast or oatmeal.
I promised pictures, so below is an example of a great breakfast. This morning I had berries, sweet potato hash browns (homemade! see how-to below), and a 3 egg white/1 yolk omelet with 1 tsp of parmesan for my protein. So filling and so delicious. When you eat tasty breakfast like this, it will be worth getting up those 15 minutes earlier.
Now, here’s how one goes about making sweet potato hash browns. Simply chop up a cup of sweet potatoes, toss in olive oil and your favorite seasoning, and bake for at least 30 minutes until they’re soft. I used a dash of salt and pepper, and rosemary to season mine and they turned out great, but you can experiment with your favorites and see what you like.
