Even prissy vegans can indulge in this walk on the wild side.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  At least that is what nutritionists keep telling me.  Perhaps these know-it-alls with their charts and lab coats and rosy cheeks are right.  Filling your gullet with kickass nutrients prepares you for any crazy $%&@ thrown your way.  Eat a solid breakfast and you will be able to catch a blimp on fire hurtling down to the earth with your pinkie finger.  Sounds about right.  So here’s an uber-healthy recipe with protein to the extreme with plenty of fiber and lycopene without that Fatty McGee you get with scrambling eggs. You will be prepared to stop a flamingo stampede heading straight for a bus full of kindergartners, or at the very least, Cook and Bang your date from last night like a superhero.  Now you just have to work on your secret identity, you Sex Crazy Mofo!
