Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, so there is no reason why you can’t have a healthy one that will not only satisfy your appetite but also leave you feeling guilt-free. Skipping breakfast should never be an option as the decision can negatively affect your health.

In 2012, a review was published in the journal Obesity Reviews which observed 153 studies that focused on excess weight and eating habits. The review found that although small, there was a correlation between excess weight and skipping breakfast.

As such, below are five healthy breakfast sandwich recipes to consider trying for your first meal of the day.
