Better Breakfast Month Recipes

September is Better Breakfast Month and to celebrate, we share all sorts of breakfast recipes for you to enjoy. There’s been a lot of talk lately about breakfast, and if it is still the most important meal of the day. The recent study I saw leads me to believe that more research is necessary.

To keep up with the times, I pack my breakfast every day and take a break at about 11 am and eat at that time.

In one of the more comprehensive studies to date, it’s recently been proven that eggs (yolks) are not the best choice for breakfast. In this recent study, it is believed that egg yolks raise cholesterol and increase chances for heart disease. So we’ll limit eggs to one per serving, if-at-all for now. Until the next study.

What to drink for breakfast

Let’s start with an iced latte for a change of scenery. This recipe is so simple but just beautiful. I find that in the summer months this is all I need to get my day started.
