Summer is still in full swing here in Phoenix, AZ. The weather is warm, the sun is shining and bikinis are being worn on the regular. Even though it’s difficult to keep motivated and stay in “beach-bod” shape as the fall months approach, now is as a good a time as any to keep your diet and fitness regimen in check!
For this month’s healthy recipe, we are taking a spicy take on a breakfast dish that is loaded with protein: Eggs Ole! This recipe comes from the mecca of health, Fitness Magazine, and it is simple to make for your busy mornings.
As all fitness freaks know, eggs are one of the go-to options when you are trying to eat a high protein meal while eliminating as much fat as possible. In order to energize yourself enough to keep up your exercise routine, eggs are a must to include into your daily diet.
But don’t stick with the same old, boring hardboiled egg. Switch it up and add a little bit of south-of-the-border to your morning!
One of the best things about this particular recipe is that if you are really wanting to cut back on calories, you can always use an egg substitute instead of real eggs. Regardless of what you choose to add to this simple recipe, you will be sure to start your morning off right, feeling energized!
