Happy New Year, friends! No doubt, we all have resolutions on our minds, and I'm willing to bet we all have health-related goals on our lists. I, for one, would like to drop a couple of pounds. Yup, it happens -- life creeps up on you and before you know it, you've fallen off the wagon. It happens to the best of us. My weight loss goal is somewhere between five and 10 pounds. One day at a time. I know first hand that preparation is key, and that's why I came up with this breakfast recipe. What's to love? Cook once, enjoy it all five days of the week. It's also very easy to swap ingredients to keep things interesting. I don't know about you, but I find myself in trouble when I get bored. This week it'll be caramelized onions, Canadian bacon, spinach and some delicious Brie. Enjoy!
