13 Healthy Breakfasts for Busy Mornings

We admit it: There are some (or more like, many) mornings where it's everything we can do to will ourselves out of bed and grab a fistful of cereal or a crappy granola bar on our way out the door. It's not like a gourmet breakfast is a realistic everyday goal. But that doesn't mean we should settle for a sugar rush that will leave us sad and hungry just a half hour later. You'd be surprised how many healthy breakfast ideas require very little effort when put into practice. We're about to blow your mind with everything from crazy-easy

Plus, it’s high in protein and essential amino acids like lysine, which is essential for tissue growth and repair. Simply put all the ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Then simmer, stir, top with your favorite add-ons, and enjoy!

Stack 'em in a tupperware container for easy transport or cook the yolks a bit more and make the whole thing into a sandwich.
