Breakfast is a most egg-cellent meal. Films have been named after it. Guitar-carrying crooners shower it with praise, and for good reason: breakfast is a way of saying good morning to your body. Evidence suggests that healthy breakfasts can regulate your appetite and even improve cognitive function. In the wise words of Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson, there has never been a sadness that can't be cured by breakfast food. Not a morning person? Short on time? Get your creative juices flowing and your razor-sharp juicers running. We're doing simple, scrumptious, and healthy breakfasts that you can scramble together in an instant.
