Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. I am a rather busy person, so I usually just grab something quick to go during the week. On weekends, however, I like to treat myself to some home-made and delicious goodies :)
I like to describe it as an easier version of pancakes. You don't need to worry about batter, you just put milk and an egg and some sugar into a bowl, dip the bread in, fry it in butter and voila! I personally love to add cinnamon to my mix, but that's a matter of preference. Franch toast tastes good with pretty much anything - honey, maple syrup, nutella, whipped cream and strawberries...

Eggs are good for you. They contain tons of protein that our bodies need, lets just ignore the cholesterol in the yolk. This is probably the easiest way to make an egg; you just crack it open on a pan with heated oil and wait. You can make the yolk as hard or as soft as you want. Unlike when boiling eggs, you can actually see what it looks like. Julie Tip #1: Bacon. Bacon makes everything better. You know it.
Milkshakes are amazing. The advantage of making them yourself is that you know what you're putting in and can therefore make them healthy. My absolute favorite is strawberry-vanilla. It's just milk, fresh or frozen strawberries, vanilla extract and optionally some heavy cream. The nutella-banana one is great too. Actually they are all the bomb, it just depends on what fruits you like. If you prefer a healthier or less calorific version, skip the heavy cream, use skim milk and add some flavored protein powder :)
This baby is super healthy as well, at least that's wht the internet says. There's instant versions that you just microwave, or you put the oatmeal in a pot with water, boil it and wait for it to thicken. Julie Tip #2: use whole milk instead of water; probably not the greates idea if you're trying to lose weight, but it tastes sooo much better. I love it with caramelized apples and cinnamon, but like the french toast, you can eat it with anything.
I always thought scrambled eggs were amazing. That was until I found out that most of the people I know eat them wrong - they just put eggs in a pan and done. NO. That's so boring, your eggs could be so much better people! Cut up and fry some onions in butter, add whatever veggies you like (my faves are tomatos and bell peppers) and let them soften, put some ham and olives in, and basically anything else that you would like. THEN add the eggs. And to top it off, put mozzarella cheese in it. It's almost like an omelette, except it's easier because it can't break/fall apart/whatever.
