Why eggs?

"Most people are in a hurry in the morning, and would rather get those last few minutes of sleep. This causes them to neglect breakfast or grab something that isn’t a substantial breakfast," she said. "Most people know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but most do not enough for breakfast, or skip it all together. Eggs are a great breakfast choice, although most people save eggs for the weekend for time’s sake. Below are a few recipes to enjoy eggs in the morning without having to get up early."
