A High-Protein Breakfast to Jump-Start Your Metabolism

I am borderline addicted to breakfast sandwiches. There’s something slightly magical about the perfect combination of eggs| bread| and bacon all together in one indulgent bite. Unfortunately| this decadence comes with a hefty caloric and fatty price tag. And if you’re looking to get fit or take off weight in 2015| a rich breakfast sandwich can’t be part of your everyday routine.

The next time you’re craving a heavy egg sandwich| skip the long brunch lines| and opt for this much lighter homemade recipe from dietitian Julie Upton| MS| RD| of Appetite For Health instead. It’s easy to throw together for a quick weekday breakfast but still tastes like a special indulgence ¡ª fit for any fun Sunday brunch get-together.
