Many many researches demonstrate that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and this for many reasons. Basically, eating breakfast kicks starts your metabolism and breaks your overnight fast. Eating a good meal comprising of proteins and whole grains will keep you going through till lunch and will prevent you to snack too much on those office doughnuts laying around. Other benefits include, controlling your blood sugar levels. Waiting till mid day will through off your entire body and you will feel tired and unorganized. So make time for breakfast!
The biggest excuse people give themselves is usually the time factor. Trust me, I am in that boat, especially living on your own, you tend to eat what you want and when you want. With a little self discipline, cooking breakfast will give you self satisfaction and help you feel the best you can be! Here is a favorite of mine that does not require too much effort and can impress anyone, including yourself!
Over Easy With Style
This does not require a recipe and can be made in any portion size. Basic things you will need;
-Shallots (or a small white onion), finely diced
- Bacon, finely diced
- Basil or other fresh herbs
Pretty simple concept to put it all together.
1. In a medium sized frying pan on medium heat, melt a nut of butter. When the butter is melted, throw in some finely chopped bacon and shallots. Fry gently until the shallots are translucent and bacon seems to be cooked.
2. Carefully crack the eggs over the bacon mixture and sprinkle with seasoning, including your herbs. Cook until the whites become opaque. Place a lid over the pan and leave for about 3-4 minutes to lightly solidify the yolks.
3. Serve with your favorite breakfast sides (toast, juice, coffee etc) and sprinkle some fresh herbs on the eggs for presentation. Enjoy!
Eat well and till next time!
