The main excuse athletes give me for why they don't eat a quality breakfast - cooking good breakfast foods takes too long and they want to sleep. Well we can solve those problems in 2-easy ways.
1) Wake-up 5-minutes earlier and use that time to make a better breakfast. Waking up 5-minutes earlier will NOT effect your sleep and your body won't be able to tell the difference. The recipes below are simple and fast, you don't need an hour to cook a quality breakfast.
2) Prepare on Sunday. Take 30-minutes on Sunday to cook up and prepare food for the week. Some of the recipes below can easily be made on Sunday, and refrigerated to eat during the week.
We like the philosophy, "start strong, finish strong". We feel if you start the day off on a good foot, you're more likely to go about your day making strong decisions. So here are some of our favorite breakfast recipes to get your day off to a great start.
