Why not shake things up and have dinner for breakfast? There are certainly no rules saying you can't. And if you're bored of eating the same old morning meal every day, dinner for breakfast will keep things interesting.
Of course, we're not talking cold pizza or reheated wings. Think about a baked potato with plain Greek yogurt in place of sour cream, sprinkled with chives. Or a hearty vegetable soup with some whole-grain crusty bread on the side. How about a high-protein veggie burger on a wheat tortilla? The sky's the limit!
