Get cracking with these eggcellent breakfast ideas

Everyone has a morning routine. Whether it's hitting the gym or pressing the snooze button several times, every one has their own unique way of waking up.

But what do all of our morning routines have in common? They include a good hearty breakfast of course. But what is the best breakfast? Should you go all out and eat cereal and toast or will a smoothie hit the spot?

To get the answer to this question, we asked the talented Nutrition & Dietetic lecturers at FIAFitnation for their expertise. So what did they tell us - well it's a real cracker - eat eggs!

Here are a half dozen reasons why you should start your day with eggs

  1. They taste great! Boiled, scrambled, poached or be inspired to make this healthy omelette from our celebrity guest nutrition lecturer (and FIA alumni) Teresa Cutter from The Healthy Chef

  2. Eggcellent vision. Keep your eyes healthy with the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin found in egg yolks which help protect eyes from the sun

  3. Eggs make cents. Compared to other high-quality protein foods eggs are the least expensive per serving. Cha-ching

  4. Feeling fried? A well-balanced breakfast of eggs will improve your concentration levels and attention span for the day ahead

  5. It’s a natural multi-vitamin. Eggs are a complete protein with all 9 essential amino acids the body needs to build and repair muscle in the body

  6. You get built-in calorie control. Two boiled eggs have only 150 calories

Bonus tip: you can drop eggcellent puns all day! #getcracking #notyolking
