Let's face it, our bodies are like cars. It needs fuel or energy in order for it to perform well. In order for us to perform at our optimal performance throughout the day, we need energy. Breakfast does just that.

Every now and then, we might be tempted to resort to microwaveable frozen food - you know, the ones that sit in the freezer waiting for you to eat after pressing 1 minute on the microwave?

If you have time to do just that, you have enough time to at least prepare yourself a proper meal. In fact, here are 5 quick and easy recipes to make which involves the use of the classic egg! They each take at most 5 minutes to prepare and cook. Now how great is that compared to unhealthy frozen food?
