Breakfast - Healthy, Fast and Tasty

Mornings in my house...well... let's just say I should invite in cameras and start a reality show.  Living with two females in the house adds it's own, shall we say, unique atmosphere.  One, an eight year old happy morning person, is playing and singing with no concept of time to get ready for school.  The other, my beautiful bride, is NOT a morning person and we don't make dare make eye contact until at least the second cup of coffee! These ladies are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to getting ready in the mornings and that's all I have to say about that.

Breakfast is important.  It starts your day off on the right foot. You need a good mix of both protein and carbs for brain function and energy to face the day.  Obviously my household does not allow for much time so here is what I have most mornings.

Start with a small pan, some non-stick spray and a few red pepper flakes.
In a toaster oven/oven a slice of whole wheat bread, low fat ham and ultra thin provolone.
Cook egg to desired level - like easy over.

Remove when toasted to desired level - I like tanned bottoms.

Place eggs on top of toasted items.

Eat up!

This fuel efficient day starter is:
            Egg - 70 cal.
            Bread - 60 cal.
            Cheese - 40 cal.
            Ham - 30 cal.

            Total - 200 calories for a fast easy breakfast.  Ready in just minutes.
