The Benefits of Eating Breakfast

For most people, eating a big breakfast helps with weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight. Eating a large, protein-rich breakfast is also essential for those looking to gain muscle. However, eating the right foods is also important. Having some cereal and a muffin for breakfast, which take no effort to make but are loaded with sugar and carbs, will only set you back in your journey for a fitter, healthier body. 


Five Minute Breakfast

There is a common misconception out there that to make a healthy breakfast is time consuming. The breakfast options that follow can all be made in five minutes and are simple to make.


2 Eggs

Ham (or turkey breast, chicken breast, turkey bacon)

Cottage or Feta Cheese

Pepper (black or cayenne)

Spinach (optional)

Mushrooms (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

Take a pan, fill it with grape seed oil or olive oil, and let it warm up on medium-high for 2 to 3 minutes. In the meantime, crack two eggs in a small bowl and scramble them for 1 to 2 minutes. If you don’t like your eggs scrambled, skip that step. Once the oil is hot (put your hand over the pan to test the heat), put a slice of ham on the pan, followed by the eggs. For those wanting some extra nutritional value, you can throw in some spinach leaves or mushrooms immediately after the eggs. Let one side cook for a couple of minutes on medium-high, and then flip it. Let the other side cook for another minute or so, and scoop it into a plate. To enhance the taste, you can add black pepper (or cayenne pepper if you like it spicy) and some feta cheese or cottage cheese. You can also add some sour cream or some ketchup, but try to limit these. As for a drink to go along with breakfast, water is recommended, with coffee or tea being optional. And there you have it, a simple-to-make, nutritious breakfast that tastes great and will help you start your day right.
