While you never want to completely cut carbs from your meal plan, cutting back a little bit can produce weight loss. When you think about carbs, remember that there are two kinds. Complex carbs are the ones you want to eat, while simple carbs are the ones you want to avoid. Breakfast is often carb heavy considering that it is usually something like cereal, a bagel, donuts or cinnamon rolls. Make the switch to eggs and you have a healthy and filling meal that is low in carbs and high in nutrients. Every single one of these recipes allows you to quickly and easily prepare a quick egg breakfast any day of the week.
