Mornings can be hectic and drive-thru lines can be long! (Let’s not forget they also work against what our health and fitness goals are, for the most part.)
If you are reading this, you are trying to be healthier and stating your day off on the right foot is so important to how the rest of your day plays out. One of the best things I ever started making, were these Quick and Easy Egg Muffins. These egg muffins not only quick and easy, but they are so versatile and can easily be customized to make everyone’s taste buds happy. Thanks to the versatility of them, you won’t get tired of eating them, because you can change the flavor profiles each time you make them.
[yumprint-recipe id=’4′] We like to balance them out, especially while doing the 21 Day Fix, by adding a fruit (purple container) or turning them into a wrap with some salsa or avocado (yellow and blue containers). Balancing your breakfast out also helps to keep you fuller longer, while giving your body the fuel it needs to get you through the beginning of your day.
I typically make these egg muffins on a Sunday, divide them into servings (4 muffins per container) and pop them into the fridge, so we always have breakfast (or lunch) on hand in a pinch.
The other great thing about these, are that they are inexpensive, which is PERFECT for those who want to eat clean, but are on a budget or for those who have a lot of mouths to feed every morning. Even if you get organic, free range, brown eggs at $4 a carton, each serving of eggs is only around .66 cents! The other money saver is since they are packed with veggies, I never have produce going to waste. I just chop up whatever is on hand, add some seasoning and turn it into a quick and easy egg muffin! You can’t wait in line at your local drive-thru and get a nutritious breakfast that cheap!
