As I kid I hated eggs. When my dad would make them for breakfast, I always choose cereal instead (or a cinnamon pop tart…!). Boy, how times have changed. Eggs are now one of my go-to breakfasts. They are high in protein, and keep me full for hours. Plus they pair well with vegetables, and I always love when I can get a serving of veggies in first thing in the morning.

This healthy breakfast sandwich pairs scrambled eggs with fresh spinach, tangy feta cheese, and a whole wheat pita. Sliced avocado adds some healthy fat, while tomato slices provide another serving of veggies. This is a hearty breakfast full of fiber, protein, and healthy fat, guaranteed to keep you full for hours.
