  1. Hmmmm, those look delicious! I’m a big breakfast person – I need some food to start out my day and I love most traditional breakfasts. Thanks for these ideas.

  2. I find that it helps start my day off right (not only because breakfast is the most important meal of the day, smile) if I’m eating a lot of protein. In turn, we eat a lot of eggs. Your picture made me hungry!

    I didn’t think to add nuts to a meal but that’s easy enough to do. Thanks for the idea.

    1. Thanks! We eat a lot of eggs too. My husband asks for eggs nearly every day so I am always looking for new ways to prepare them!
