15 Hot and Spicy Breakfasts to Wake You Up!

Sure, a comforting bowl of barely sweet oatmeal or a fresh and fruity smoothie are perfect for the morning, but sometimes you just need a little more heat and flavor to start the day! In fact, eating spicy foods releases endorphins, similar to a runner’s high. Forget the morning run, just grab a bottle of hot sauce to get going! (Okay, that may not be the soundest health advice, but it is sound eating advice.)

These 15 hot and spicy breakfasts are sure to wake you up and are a great way to kick off your day. You might not even need a cup of coffee!
