Few can afford to skip breakfast, but for athletes and highly active individuals, meeting daily energy needs requires breakfast! A protein-rich, grab-and-go option is a particularly great solution after a morning workout, a time when muscles need fuel to recover and repair1. Protein diversity from animal, dairy and vegetable sources coming from eggs, cheese and beans each deliver value in the form of the amino acid profiles and nutrients that are uniquely inherent to the protein sources. And then pairing protein with fresh produce like peppers, onions, herbs, and tomatoes, brings in antioxidants, which have been linked with a healthy immune system, a must during intense training periods3. Other sources of energy, like unsaturated oil, avocado, and sour cream can be tailored to the individual athlete depending on their energy needs, making this a highly customizable, convenient meal for anyone.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
