A Fast, Simple, Delicious Breakfast Alternative to Eggs

You are not going to develop a hard, lean athletic body eating processed, sugary cereal out of a box each morning. As a result, many athletes and fitness folks turn to eggs. Eggs rock! They provide high-quality protein and are packed with nutrients. They are also fast and easy to prepare. The problem is that many people run into a breakfast rut and eat eggs every day. This is down-right boring for your taste buds. Also over-consuming a particular food can increase your risk of developing a food sensitivity or intolerance (this is particularly risky for eggs as they tend to be one of the more problematic foods for intolerances). If you want to break out of your breakfast rut, I’ve got a great alternative for you!

The New Rules of Carbs

Diet rules suck. Any time you get a dietary recommendation that includes words such as “always”, “never”, “only”, a big red flag should go up. While rules can be great for many things, diet rules can mess up your nutrition. Following the latest diet laws can make nutrition unnecessarily difficult and sometimes completely sabotage your goals. One particular area of nutrition that is flooded with rules is the area of carbohydrates. If you blindly follow traditional carb rules you can get fat, lose muscle, kill your performance and even hurt your health. To avoid these problems, follow the “new rules” (i.e. principles) of carbs.
