    Build a Better Breakfast Recipes

    I am sure you’ve heard that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day,” but not everyone is a breakfast lover. Some of us need to wait until noon to break the fast, while others are morning eaters (there is no one-size-fits-all approach to most things in life). But here’s something to motivate you towards eating well and feeling great - getting your day started right with a healthy choice will most likely keep you on track throughout the remainder of your day. Call it a meal, or call it breakfast, but make it a nutritious start.

    Looking for breakfast inspiration? Here is one of our favorite morning meal recipes.



    • 4 slices Canadian bacon (4 ounces)
    • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 8 ounces baby spinach leaves (about 8 cups lightly packed)
    • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
    • 4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves



    Cook the Canadian bacon in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat until golden brown, about 5 minutes, turning once.

    Remove from the skillet and cut into 1/2-inch strips. Set aside.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.

    Place the spinach in a large serving bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat evenly.

    Top with the tomatoes, eggs, Canadian bacon, and parsley, and serve.
