Oh, the incredible edible egg. Eggs are, by far, my favorite way to start the day. They make a nutrient-rich, protein-packed breakfast that keeps me satisfied well until lunch, plus they're one of those "brain foods" that are just really good for you.

Get creative! I always love using leftovers in my kitchen creation: fajita veggies from last night, sausage from that BBQ place yesterday, sautéed mushrooms from dinner the other day. Don’t underestimate the power of leftovers!
May you enjoy Peace, Love, and Good Food!
