How to make a healthy high protein breakfast in two minutes!

I want to thank one of my patients for this recipe, you know who you are!! Although I did not get it quite right, the addition of a second egg makes the cakes stick together quite well. The original recipe only had one egg. I also learned from this patient that pink salmon is called dog salmon. Meaning, in Alaska, they feed it to dogs! No wonder I've never liked canned salmon. So!

Did you ovulate too early or not even ovulate?? After an ectopic pregnancy and emergency surgery to cauterize one of my fallopian tubes and prevent me from bleeding to death (sorry to be so graphic) at 29 years old, I became terrified that I would never get pregnant.
