Spicy, Metabolism-Boosting Breakfast Recipes

Spicy breakfasts can boost your metabolism all day.

Breakfast has been proposed by many to be the most important food that you consume during your day. That's because eating a good breakfast, especially one that contains protein and healthy fat, can help you eat less and burn more calories the rest of the day.

The capsaicin in spicy foods can raise your core body temperature for a short time, helping you burn more calories, and it can also allow you to eat more slowly and mindfully.

With that in mind, we have a few suggestions for spicy breakfast foods. Take advantage of the health benefits of spice and breakfast at the same time.
