Word on the street is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day -- but for a lot of us, it’s unfortunately also the most rushed meal of the day.

After all, it’s easier said than done to whip up a quick, nutritious breakfast before running out the door!

But, thanks to chef Rocco DiSpirito -- and his new book "Rocco's Healthy + Delicious: More than 200 (Mostly) Plant-Based Recipes for Everyday Life" -- it may be more doable than you think!

"This is a lifestyle for me," Rocco says of eating healthily, yet deliciously. "I went through the transformation 10 years ago. It’s about common sense healthy."

Hear Rocco talk about the philosophy behind his lifestyle and new book below:


When he visited our show, he taught us how to make 3 of his delicious breakfast sandwiches -- all made with his mug bread.

Not to mention these sandwiches only take between 5 and 15 minutes to make!

All hail, Rocco!

MICROWAVE BUCKWHEAT BREAD


Behold, the foundation of all these breakfast sandwiches!

BREAKFAST REUBEN


Complete with homemade Thousand Island dressing (Rocco makes his with low-sugar ketchup, yogurt and unsweetened relish). Yum-o!

KALE AND EGG SANDWICH


Because the kale craze isn’t over just yet!

BACON, EGG AND CHEESE BREAKFAST SANDWICH


Believe it or not, Rocco doesn’t tweak the classic too much.

"Usually the only problem is the bread or the muffin or the biscuit," he explains. 

Plus, he makes his with turkey bacon!
