The meaning of Break – fast

Have you ever thought about the meaning of break-fast besides the obvious? The obvious is “breakfast is the first meal of the day and experts proclaim the most important”.

According to, breakfast is the first meal of the day. The word is a compound of "break" and "fast," referring to the conclusion of fasting since the previous day's last meal.

Here is a quote from my South Beach Diet cookbook:

South Beach Diet, “one important study proved that starting the morning with processed carbs – a bagel, say – will stimulate cravings for more of the same throughout the day. The same research has shown that a breakfast of good proteins and fats – like a cheese and vegetable omelet – will actually keep those urges away. Eggs, vegetables, and lean meats are all the healthy ways to start the day.

Here is a healthy, quick, and tasty recipe your family will enjoy

Sausage Cheese Breakfast Cups
4 oz turkey sausage or crumbled turkey bacon
½ green pepper
¼ onion
5 large eggs
1 can (12 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/2 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Coat a 6 cup nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups. In a medium nonstick skillet, cook the sausage, pepper, and onion for 5 minutes or until sausage is done. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and cool slightly. Stir in the eggs and mushrooms. Evenly divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 20 minutes or until egg is set. Enjoy!!
