The nice thing about eating eggs is the morning (besides from their high nutrient content) is that it's really easy to begin the day with healthy eating. Eggs are simple, and they can be spruced up using a variety of vegetables and herbs. Beginning your day with healthy eating motivates you to continue your day that way. I can guarantee you'll feel more inclined to eat a healthy meal for lunch if you begin your day with a veggie-filled omelette over a donut, where you already feel like you sabotaged your day.
Ingredients (serves 1-2)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
