Here’s a few great recipes for healthy breakfast egg sandwiches. They’re super easy. And delicious.
I feel satisfied much longer when I begin the day with protein, especially eggs. There are lots of studies to back this up. Eating lean protein is a wonderful way to slim down and lose weight. A study in Saint Louis found that eating eggs for breakfast could decrease your calorie intake for the remainder of the day!
Remember when eggs were considered unhealthy because of their high cholesterol count and we were told it was better to eat a bagel or pancakes? Well, those days are long gone because it’s not true. I’m living proof. Back in the late 198s and 1990s I often chose bagels and toast and cereal for breakfast and avoided eggs like the plague. I also had a real hard time with my weight. All those refined carbs and starches left my hungry, fat, cranky and constantly reaching for more food.
It turns out that eggs are low in calories and fat and rich in B vitamins, vitamins E and A, and choline. And their high cholesterol count isn’t as big a problem as once believed. Doctors now know that dietary cholesterol doesn’t influence your blood cholesterol nearly as much as saturated and trans fats do. Since an egg has just 5 grams of fat, one whole egg a day can fit easily into a healthy low-fat diet.
These healthy breakfast egg sandwiches are one of my favorite quick and easy breakfasts. To make it vegetarian, skip the bacon and add a slice of low fat cheese instead. Or for another point add the slice of cheese.
