A lot of people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or that you need to eat breakfast in the morning to get your metabolism going. While there isn’t much concrete evidence to back those claims, I still prefer to start my morning with a decent breakfast.
My normal morning routine is a bit elaborate for some people, but when I’m short on time and still want a solid, nutritious breakfast the Ultimate High Protein Breakfast Sandwichis my go-to meal. So long as it’s not your first time in the kitchen it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to whip this up — trust me, it’s worth it.
And it’s modular — even though it’s built purely from grade A, high-quality protein and grains, feel free to scale down the eggs/turkey bacon if you wan’t a lower calorie option.
