Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day, so much so that I have been known to eat breakfast burritos for lunch and dinner too.  As much as I love the taste of a greasy burrito or breakfast sandwich, my gut doesn’t always agree with me afterwards.  I have put together some of my favorite healthy recipes for all my fellow breakfast lovers out there that are not only delicious, but easy to make! Breakfast is important – not only is it the first meal of your day, but it also sets the tone for the next 12-15 hours you spend awake. Let’s make it count!
