Eggs are one of the most complete foods you can find. Think about it, eggs contain everything needed to grow a baby chicken. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and high-quality proteins and low in carbs and fat.
According to dietary research from Saint Louis University, people who consume eggs for breakfast, eat roughly 330 fewer calories daily compared to those who eat cereal, toast, or bagels for their morning meal. 1
‘Complete protein’ – 9 essential amino acids:
Amino acids are the Lego blocks of protein, which make up our body and feed your brain. Of the 23 types of protein-building amino acids, 9 are categorized as “essential”, meaning they cannot be synthesized by the body and therefore must be obtained via diet. Egg contains all 9 of the essential amino acids, giving you a truly “complete” start to the day.
Breakfasts shouldn’t be rocket science. They should take under 10 minutes to make so you can worry about the rest of your morning routine, AKA your wake and bake.
Lox, eggs, and onions is a no brainer in 8 minutes tops.
- 3 eggs
- 2 sheets of lox (thinly cut salmon Jews love and you put on bagels)
- 1 red onion
- Turn on the stove. Douse the pan in Olive oil. Let that bitch get hot.
- Chop half an onion and throw it in the pan. Let them loosen up a bit. 3 minutes.
- Cut the salmon up into little pieces and throw it in there until the pink takes on a more fuller color. 1 minute.
- Crack 3 eggs into the pan. (You don’t need to whisk them beforehand like you may think.) If you take your spatula, and keep the eggs moving, they will naturally scramble. 2 minutes.
- Add some salt and pepper in a dramatic fashion.
- Wait until eggs look ready.
- Back to the wake and bake.
- Make a batch and have for multiple mornings.
- Lox, eggs and onions is bomb with a bagel or toast.
- Add ketchup.
Start your morning with a kick ass breakfast with a side of kick ass tunes.
Have an awesome day!
