When you have time for breakfast

Nothing beats a nutritious breakfast. When I set the alarm fifteen minute early and make breakfast, I find myself more energetic than usual. I can also concentrate better throughout the day. My mom always told me to eat like a king for breakfast and eat like a pauper for dinner. Although I really like Trader Joe's Maple Cluster and Gluten Free Cranberry Granola (I can eat them any time, anywhere, all the time), I know I should add in some veggies or a fried egg.

A recipe that I picked up from the Vegetarian Time is very time appropriate for rush hours in the morning. When you wake up, turn the oven on to 400, go brush your teeth and wash your face. Come back to the kitchen when you're more awake! Then heat a skillet and sautee some chopped onion, mushroom, carrot...anything or just onion. Add fresh or frozen spinach to the skillet, topped with sliced tomato, sprinkle some olive oil, salt, pepper, parmesan, and THEN! crack an egg in the middle. Bake the whole thing while you get dressed. It should take less than 15 minutes in the oven. who am I really kidding? I doubt anyone wakes up as early as me every morning just because I look forward to breakfast. Try this recipe over the weekend. It's really a no fuss breakfast food. The best thing is you can leave it in the oven for fifteen minutes while you check your Facebook notifications or read the morning newspaper.
