September is Better Breakfast Month

by Clay Brown | Sep 05, 2019
We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if that’s really the case, then why do so many skip breakfast every morning? Naturally, schedules can be hectic and breakfast is often the first thing to be cut out of the schedule to make sure we get where we need to be on time.

However, breakfast is an intricate part to not only having a productive day, but it can also have a large impact on your health. Eating breakfast jump starts metabolism and gives you energy to start your day. Studies also show that skipping breakfast can lead to higher chances of being overweight and overeating at other meals. Meanwhile, eating a healthy breakfast can lead to higher levels of concentration and memory and having a lower BMI.

Mornings can be busy, but making a healthy and delicious breakfast can be easy with eggs! Eggs offer valuable portions of protein, lutein and choline all at roughly 80 calories per egg. Check out these quick and easy recipes to start your day with a delicious and nutritious breakfast. https://bit.ly/2IkpXb0

The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

        
          
Ingredients:
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 oz milk or semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 4 oz dark chocolate chunk, or your preference
Instructions:
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugars, salt, and butter until a paste forms with no lumps.
  2. Whisk in the egg and vanilla, beating until light ribbons fall off the whisk and remain for a short while before falling back into the mixture.
  3. Sift in the flour and baking soda, then fold the mixture with a spatula (Be careful not to overmix, which would cause the gluten in the flour to toughen resulting in cakier cookies).
  4. Fold in the chocolate chunks, then chill the dough for at least 30 minutes. For a more intense toffee-like flavor and deeper color, chill the dough overnight. The longer the dough rests, the more complex its flavor will be.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Scoop the dough with an ice-cream scoop onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving at least 4 inches (10 cm) of space between cookies and 2 inches (5 cm) of space from the edges of the pan so that the cookies can spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges have started to barely brown.
  8. Cool completely before serving.
