This Healthy Breakfast Sandwich Is Delicious, Quick & Filling
Okay, I’ll admit it: breakfast is a struggle for me.
I usually run out of time in the morning to make myself a real breakfast…
(Between getting myself ready for the day… and helping other people in my house get ready for the day… there just isn’t time!)
So I end up just grabbing something as I run out the door… which is usually something less than healthy, like an overly processed granola bar… or something pretty insufficient, like just an apple…
Or I resort to skipping breakfast altogether.
None of those options is ideal when I’m trying to lose weight and be healthier!
So, it’s one of my goals to be better about eating a healthy breakfast.
But I need that healthy breakfast to also be something fast & easy to get ready, since my mornings always seem so rushed.TRENDING: Science Reveals Easy, No-Workout Ways to Lose Weight… While You Snooze!

(Something to make my mornings easier? That’s exactly what I need!)
So then when your morning inevitably turns out more hectic than you expected… just grab one of these delicious breakfast sandwiches on your way out the door for the day!
Here’s how to get started:
FTH’s Egg, Tomato & Spinach Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 English muffin
- 1-2 egg whites
- A small handful of spinach
- 2 slices of tomato
- Toast the English muffin. While it toasts, start cooking up your spinach in a small to medium fry pan. When it looks wilted, it’s ready. Set aside.
- Cook your egg whites until there is no runny part (or to your liking).
- Put your egg whites, spinach, and tomato onto the English muffin and have a great breakfast!
Why Spinach Is A Rockstar In This Recipe
Of course, you can easily personalize your breakfast sandwich to fit your favorite flavors.
Don’t like tomato? Leave it off!
Have a lovely, ripe avocado in your kitchen? Slice it up and add it on!
Lettuce… onion… bell pepper… mushrooms… jalapeño… lots of different veggies could work really well on this breakfast sandwich. So don’t be afraid to experiment and mix it up!
However, if I may make a suggestion… I’d say, keep the spinach in this recipe.
(Personally, I like the taste of spinach more than lettuce anyway!)
That’s because spinach is SO good for you. It’s absolutely packed with vitamins and minerals that do a lot of good for your body.SPECIAL: This Scientific Trick Can Reduce Your Belly Fat By 8.5% in Just 12 Weeks…

In addition, spinach contains several plant compounds that hold incredible benefits as well. Lutein and zeaxanthin, for example, have been linked to improved eye health.
Spinach is also one of the richest sources of quercetin. This is another antioxidant, and it may reduce your risk for infection and inflammation.
On top of all of that… spinach is tasty! It doesn’t have a really strong taste, so it works well in a ton of different recipes.BRAND NEW: These Delicious Desserts Can Help You Burn Fat & Lose Weight

And if you don’t like your spinach cooked… leave it raw. With this recipe, you can easily pack several spinach leaves onto your English muffin before adding your egg. Perfect solution!
How This Protein-Packed Breakfast Can Help You Easily Melt Off The Pounds…
One of the reasons I LOVE breakfast sandwiches is that if I include eggs (which have SO MANY health benefits)… I know I’m getting a good serving of protein to start my day.
And I’ve noticed that when I start off with a protein-filled breakfast, I stay fuller for longer… and I simply have a better morning!
(Is it because I don’t get hangry? Maybe… and that makes the morning better for everyone around me, too! No one likes to encounter me when I’m hangry…)
But get this: I recently came across some new research that made me even more excited about eating a protein-filled breakfast…
You read that right—they ate more, and lost more weight.
(Sign me up for that kind of weight loss plan!)
And I’m not even talking about people who doubled or tripled their protein intake… they only had to increase it by 15-30%. (For example, one serving of Greek yogurt has 17 grams of protein—that might be enough to hit your percentage right there!)
And that small increase led to burning an average of 441 MORE calories every day!
That’s exactly the way I want to start my day. 🙂
