Homemade Breakfast Sandwiches
There is nothing I love more than the monthly The Recipe Redux recipe challenges, they help to keep me creatively cooking in the kitchen, while also reminding me just how fast time is passing by! This month’s challenge is super fun and nostalgic:
Stir up some of your earliest culinary recollections. Did you stand at your grandmother’s elbow to learn to cook? Or did you learn by stumbling through a cookbook by yourself? Share a healthy recipe and the accompanying story about one of your first cooking memories.
First Cooking Memories
Growing up with my sister who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 7 really influenced my interest and passion for nutrition. From a very young age, I was always aware of the need to properly fuel my body with nutritious foods, consistently. My mom helped to make sure we were always eating well and recognized the value of a good breakfast. I can remember my mom making my sister a breakfast sandwich every morning at 6am in her bathrobe with a cup of coffee (haha, sorry mom!!)

Of course, I was a teenager who was too cool for breakfast and ‘hated eggs’. It’s funny how times change, 10 years later I could not live without breakfast! A hearty breakfast is a key to keeping me happy & healthy all day long, and without it, I get pretty hangry. I find that eating a good breakfast in the morning helps to keep me from overeating during the day, especially lunch time, which is why I try to make breakfast one of my biggest meals of the day.
If you, like many people, find yourself resisting breakfast in the morning, I urge you to make small steps into adding breakfast into your morning routine. Having a great breakfast will help you to keep from overeating later in the day, and will also help you to get the nutrition you need to power through your day. If you make these Breakfast Sandwiches, you will even get a serving of veggies at breakfast time!
