Breakfast of Champions!

While the Green Bay Packers are still busy celebrating their turn as champions of the Super Bowl, it's time for the rest of us to get back to business. To attack the day with energy & enthusiasm, it's important to eat a Breakfast of Champions or at least have a couple great cups of coffee.

A homemade breakfast is so much tastier than a dine & dash doughnut or energy bar. Best of all, you can make a delicious breakfast in a matter of minutes if you use the simple recipes below or the FoodPair Search Engine to find your favorite morning dishes.

Seriously, there are so many great and nutritious breakfast foods: eggs are packed with protein and vitamins; cheese has Vitamin A, Calcium and protein; waffles & pancakes will give you the carb boost you need to stroll into the office with some pep in your step; smoothies are a great liquid option if you need to sprint out the door!
