Sausage and Egg English Breakfast Muffin
Build a week’s worth of these sandwiches for a delicious, on-the-go breakfast! Just zap in the microwave and stuff with a handful of veggies before you head out the door. Dark, leafy greens give you a shot of folic acid while avocado nourishes the body with healthy monounsaturated fats. Wrap them individually and warm in the microwave before serving.

We realize that you may not always have the time to cook meals from scratch, and that a quick and easy substitution may be needed. We always recommend cooking the real thing, but in a pinch you can try this instead:
Buy organic pre-made frozen vegetarian breakfast sandwiches. Add fresh spinach, sliced tomatoes, avocado and hot sauce.
