This grab & go breakfast is a must-have on busy mornings!
Would you consider yourself to be a “morning person?” If not, getting out of bed can be challenging enough, not to mention the requirement to cook a healthy breakfast every morning. We get it! But you don’t have to grab take-out on your way to work or make unhealthy choices. Our easy egg muffins will solve this issue for you. You will be able to sleep in a few extra minutes and enjoy a nutritious breakfast!
The Perfect Breakfast to Make Ahead of Time
Meal-prepping is such a valuable tool no matter what your fitness goals are. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, gain weight, build muscle, or just stay healthy, having nutrient-rich meals and snacks ready when you need them will ensure your success!
You can (and should) prepare recipes for every meal of the day, including snacks. But if you’re forced to choose, we highly recommend prioritizing breakfast.
When you’re rushed in the morning, you’re likely to do one of two things. You either skip breakfast altogether or end up grabbing something fast and unhealthy. This could be swinging through the drive-through or stopping by the vending machine on your way into the office. The problem is, when you start the day off with an unhealthy meal, you’re much more likely to make more unhealthy choices throughout the remainder of the day.
Luckily, the opposite applies as well! If you start the day off with one healthy choice, it’s much easier to continue making healthy choices all day long. Consistent healthy choices will get you to your goals, so start the day off right with these easy egg muffins!
Our Easy Egg Muffins are Overflowing with Nutrients
The fresh ingredients used to create these tasty little egg muffins not only taste amazing, but they’re also loaded with essential nutrients. This recipe offers a hefty serving of protein and healthy fats but is keto-friendly and just over 200 calories per serving. That said, there are a few ingredients worth highlighting.
Eggs are obviously the most prominent ingredient in this recipe. They are considered a superfood because they contain all nine essential amino acids. These complete proteins cannot be made by the human body, which is why they must be included in your diet. They are responsible for things like immune function, tissue growth and repair, nutrient absorption, energy production, and more!
This recipe also contains several different vegetables, including yellow onion, green bell pepper, brown mushrooms, and spinach. Each of these veggies offer different quantities of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, as well as iron, calcium, and more! These nutrients are vital for a healthy functioning body and mind.
Customize Your Mix-Ins!
While we think the recipe below is perfect as-is, you can feel free to swap-in or add any mix-ins that you like. After all, it’s important to experience different flavors so that you don’t get bored with your meals. Try a different combination each week!
Swap in veggies like diced tomatoes, roasted red peppers, scallions, asparagus, broccoli, or kale. Try different cheeses like feta, goat, Monterrey jack, mozzarella, or gouda. If you’re a meat-eater, you might like to throw in some cooked bacon bits, ground chorizo sausage, or ham. Don’t be afraid to play around with it!
