Goat Cheese Omelette

You know those mornings where you wake up starving and need food more than anything else in the world? Well, I just had one of those mornings.

Ideally, breakfast is supposed to be eaten within an hour of waking. I know there are people who just aren’t hungry at that time of the day, or don’t have the time (I tend to fit into the latter category) and breakfast is a nonexistent meal. But, it is important to try to get something into your system. A healthy, wholesome breakfast jump-starts the body’s metabolism, gives energy, and helps (note: helps, not guarantees) one avoid over-indulging later in the day.

Breakfast is a great meal because it can be made quickly too. Take this omelet for example: from start to finish I was making breakfast for 5 minutes. And what I got was a nutritious and filling meal containing lean protein, calcium, and some healthy fats. Served with a side of fruit, I am gonna go ahead and call it a winning way to start the day. Especially when you’re so hungry you could eat your alarm clock.
