Like your mom always told you, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But if you’re like me, sometimes eating breakfast is the last thing you actually want to do when waking up in the morning. As soon as my feet hit the floor I’m in super speed mode and stopping to eat just isn’t in the itinerary.
But I know how important breakfast is, so no matter how I actually feel, I always try to eat something. Whether it’s a sausage, egg and potato breakfast wrap, a Mini Berry Breakfast Parfait, Pineapple Banana Orange Breakfast Smoothie, or a boring bowl of egg whites, I try to make sure it has some protein to give me a good jump start on the day.
