Good morning protein!

By Mike Thayer

Carb-Check Diet_smallBreakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  I'm a believer in the saying that it's the most important meal of the day, as your body needs some fuel after an 8-hour session of sleep.

Here's a great way to kickstart your morning.

  • 1/4 pound of pork sausage
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 egg, slightly scrambled
  • Two slices of American cheese

You can either brown up the sausage in patty form in one pan while you cook up the onion and eggs in another, top each with cheese.....  Or you can crumble up the sausage and combine it with the onion and eggs for a one skillet breakfast, topped with cheese.  It's up to you!  If you go with the crumble, there's no need for the olive oil, the fat from the sausage will do.

This breakfast delivers about 28 grams of protein and less than 5 grams in carbs, most of those carbs coming from the onion.  That's good body fuel and those onion carbs are better for you than toast!

This is an inexpensive breakfast to prepare too, costing about $1 per serving.
