I don't know about you, but I feel like I'm running a marathon every morning. I roll out of bed, head to the gym for a 45-minute workout, come back and shower, pack lunches, run my son to the school bus, hop on a crowded subway, and fight midtown pedestrian traffic to the office. And then once I'm there, I write seven blog posts for The Stir. Needless to say, I need some energy to do this. ENERGY.
The morning workout helps, but getting a solid breakfast matters even more. Most of the time I try to eat something with lots of protein and complex carbs -- yes, I said it, CARBS. And I avoid anything too sugary or refined. Here are my favorite easy, high-energy breakfasts.
