When you’re trying to lose weight, skipping breakfast might seem like the right shortcut to shed pounds. Just a few hours “˜til lunch””you can make it, right? But missing the most important meal of the day makes it more likely you’ll munch on high-calorie snacks when mid-morning tummy rumbles kick in. And when you finally do eat a meal, you may go overboard.
Instead, fuel up first thing with something substantial, such as this Garden Veggie Omelet. It’s loaded with fresh vegetables and protein (nearly 25 grams!), giving you energy and nutrients you need to power through the morning.
