The Slim, Sexy Breakfast : Applewood Smoked Ham & Basil Breakfast Sandwich

We started off the year with great goals. Creating a balanced lifestyle to achieve those goals is a continual process. We’ve got to have creativity and have fun with life as we go along so we don’t get bored and forget our “why”. Finding the perfect balance of fit and fun is essential for a life well lived. For me, starting the day with a protein packed breakfast is a necessity to really kick start everything. If I’m being honest, it’s the follow through that I sometimes have trouble with.

Mornings are busy for moms and dads. Lunches, backpacks, lost shoes, and toothbrushes…the list goes on. There are some days I’m just not into a blah beige bowl of oatmeal. Other days, I’ve had it with slurping breakfast up through a straw. I want to help my body have all the energy it needs to but there are days when I want breakfast to be sexier. As they say, “you are what you eat”….. 🙂

In a quest for creating a slim, sexy breakfast we present the Oscar Meyer Applewood Smoked Ham & Basil Breakfast Sandwich. It is easy to prepare at the same time you are already packing lunches and high in protein just for you.  Go ahead, give it a whirl.
