We’ll admit it, there are some (or many) mornings where we have to do everything in our power to get ourselves out of bed and grab a fistful of cereal or a granola bar on our way out the door. Let’s be real, a gourmet hot breakfast just isn’t realistic every day (#GOALS). But we’re better than that- your body is better than a sugar rush that will only leave you starving a couple hours later and staring at the vending machine at work. You’d be surprised how many breakfast recipes are out there that require very little effort. Sit back as we blow your mind with this protein-packed, low-carb breakfast recipe. You can thank us later.
