Flat-Belly Diet: Slow Cooker Egg, Spinach, and Mozzarella Casserole

When you prepare this belly-friendly breakfast casserole the night before, your slow cooker does the work for you while you sleep, and you save yourself a trip to the fast-food drive-through. Simply pack your breakfast in an air-tight container, and you're out the door.

One egg contains all nine essential amino acids and is a great source of protein for only 70 calories. You can enjoy eggs any time of day. Pack a hard-boiled egg in your lunchbox for a filling snack, or make an egg salad for lunch.

Add turkey sausage, Canadian bacon, or ham for an even heartier casserole.
