Give Your Breakfast a 'Lil Kick

So, I know a lot of you guys out there aren't huge breakfast fanatics. After all, why spend time and extra cals in the morning when you can easily survive off a Mocha Frappucino, right?

Actually, that is far from the truth. Breakfast actually gets our metabolism going for the day, so you will feel full and satisfied longer while burning even MORE calories than usual. Also, those who skip their morning meal will end up feeling starving later during the day, packing on up to double the original calories.

So, ladies, do me a huge favor: eat your breakfast.

This morning I had a delicious breakfast, and I wanted to share it with you all.


1/2 cup egg substitute or egg white

1/2 cup chopped tomato

1 reduced fat string cheese or 3/4 cup shredded reduced fat cheese of your choice

few fresh basil leaves

*Spray a medium pan with cooking spray and add your egg beaters; wait until partially cooked to add the tomato and cheese to one side. Lower the heat, wait 'til the cheese melts and then flip one half over the other to create your perfect omelet. (This part takes practice : ) ) When your finished, sprinkle some basil on top...Mmm!

Pair your omelet with half a grapefruit or some delicious berries for a satisfying quick n' easy breakfast!
