EGGS!

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, blah-blah-blah. My own breakfast regiment consists of this: Wake up, walk to the kitchen or down the street, get a nice big cup of coffee, drink it, repeat until about noon or 1 o’clock, depending on when I last ate, and then start my day with an actual meal. Oh, I should probably mention, this regiment makes you feel like shit for a large portion of the day. So, you know, maybe I need to rethink this a little.

That said, what is the best breakfast food? According to Men’s Health, it’s the obvious answer of egg. But why?

And according to University of Alberta researchers, eggs also contain two amino acids—tryptophan and tyrosine—that have high antioxidant properties.

We’ve known for a while that eggs are packed with an almost bewildering lineup of healthy minerals and nutrients—including vitamin D, choline, and carotenoids (more antioxidants!), to name a few. They’re also chock-full of hunger-quelling protein (6 grams per large egg), which is why they’re such a perfect breakfast food.

So let’s start our days out right today. Let’s down an egg to get us moving. (There are a few recipes on the above-mentioned link if you’re sick of old boring eggs.) And maybe, you know, put down the coffee for a little while?
