As we’ve discussed before, diet is a huge part of your health. When you eat well you are healthier. A great diet leads to better health and better sleep. What you eat can effect your sleep greatly, like when you eat sugary snacks to get you through the morning then by afternoon you’re crashing.
Instead of reaching for those sugary snacks in the morning, start off with a great breakfast like this one!
Open-Faced Broiled Egg, Spinach, Tomato Sandwich
Skip a drive-thru egg sandwich and make this easy-to-prepare one at home. (It uses hard-boiled eggs, so you don’t even have to soil a pan.) Spinach and tomatoes provide valuable vitamins and antioxidants; a fiber-filled whole wheat English muffin combined with protein in the egg helps you stay satiated through lunchtime.
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 13 minutes
½ whole wheat english muffin
¼ c fresh spinach, cooked and squeezed dry (about 4 ounces)
1 slice tomato
1 hard-boiled egg, sliced width-wise
1 Tbsp omega-3-enriched mayonnaise
Salt-free seasoning blend
1. SET the muffin half
on a toaster oven pan or double sheet of foil. Top with the spinach and
tomato. Lay on the egg slices in an overlapping spiral. Dollop on the
mayonnaise and swirl slightly to partially cover the egg slices.
Sprinkle on seasoning to taste.
2. PLACE under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, watching carefully, until the mayonnaise is lightly browned.
