Crispy Prosciutto Egg White Sandwich

Aug 6, 2020 | Breakfast

Favorite meal of the day – BREAKFAST! This crispy prosciutto egg sandwich sounds and tastes indulgent, but really, it’s only 251 calories. The perfect way to start my Sunday before my households gets crazy 

Starting your day with breakfast means a more alert brain and a more active body! After a 10 to 12 hour fast our bodies need the fuel to maintain vital functions and our brains need the fuel to think clearly. 

Adults who skip breakfast are less mentally and physically efficient for longer periods of time during the day. 

Studies show that people who eat breakfast are more successful at losing weight and sticking to a healthy eating plan.  

Eating a bigger meal in the morning and a smaller meal at night may optimize your daily energy levels.
