Breakfast is important! …..Eat an Egg

We all know the importance of eating breakfast, it kick starts your metabolism and feeds your body with the nutrients its starving for after a long sleep cycle.  A lot of your fat burning actually occurs when you’re asleep because your body releases hormones that rebuild broken down muscle and burn fat.   For me eggs are a good choice because they’re high in protein, good fats, vitamins and antioxidants, not to mention they’re convenient and tasty as hell.  So if you’re not eating breakfast maybe you should start. My wife boils up a dozen, puts them back in the carton unpeeled and leaves them in the fridge for up to a two weeks but they never make it that long.  I found these to be a great quick ‘healthy’ snack or a quick and convenient breakfast.  I usually peel my eggs the night before and eat them on the way to work the next morning.

We have tried a bunch of different techniques of making hard boiled eggs.  This one is the best !!

1. Put eggs in pot and cover by 1 inch with water

2. Put pot on stove over heat

3. Once the water starts to boil, turn burner off and put lid on

4.

  • Let sit for 17 minutes

After the 17 minutes you’ll be left with a perfectly cooked egg with creamy (not runny) yoke! 

Enjoy

E’s Banana and Oatmeal bites

My wife discovered this recipe a couple months ago and has been making them ever since. They’re great to make in the beginning of the week and keep on the counter for a quick healthy snack all week.

The recipe can be scaled up with the same ratios. My wife usually doubles this recipe.

For 12 bites

Ingredients:
2 large bananas
1 cup of 100% whole grain oats (Quaker works)
1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon

Put on cookie sheet and cook @350 for about fifteen minutes.

Enjoy !!!
