According to Greene, breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it provides the fuel you need to stay productive, energized and well within your weight loss goals. "A nutritious and healthy breakfast will jump-start your metabolism, give you an energy boost, and help you control cravings," says Greene. "In addition to whole grains and fruit, be sure to include lean protein, which will make you feel fuller longer and help you eliminate those high-calorie mid-morning snacks."
To start his day off right, many of Greene's favorite breakfast recipes include Crystal Farms® AllWhites® 100 percent liquid egg whites and Better'n Eggs® egg substitutes, which are convenient sources of lean, high-quality protein made from real eggs but with no fat, no cholesterol and half the calories.
"From scrambled eggs to an egg white quesadilla to a protein-packed smoothie, AllWhites and Better'n Eggs bring healthy convenience right into your fridge so there are no more excuses for not starting your day off the healthy, nutritious way," Greene says. "We all have busy lives, but it couldn't be easier to add lean protein to your breakfast and get back on track with your health and nutrition goals."
