Breakfast to go

Good morning!

As National Nutrition Month comes to a close, it does not mean that we should stop talking about food! After all, food it is what our social events are planned around, it’s what we look forward to each day, it’s why we gather in the kitchen, and it gives us an extra boost during long days.

Eating HEALTHY food is challenging but there are tricks to make the process a little more simple. One of my favorite breakfast items for hectic mornings or just a delicious on-the-go nutritious option for every age is an egg muffin.

March is National Nutrition Month

These nutrient-packed breakfast egg muffins are easy to pop in the microwave to heat up and take on the go or simply speed up your morning routine. The great reality of egg muffins is that you can add any healthy ingredients and make them as colorful, nutritious, and paleo as you want them.

See below for my favorite breakfast recipe:

Egg Muffins

  • 1 carton egg whites
  • 1 carton egg substitute
  • Turkey bacon or sausage
  • Sautéed peppers
  • Sautéed onions
  • Sautéed spinach
  • Sautéed mushrooms
  • Low-fat Feta cheese

Sauté vegetables of choice and cook protein. In a standard 12-muffin baking pan, pour a thin row of egg substitute in each of the muffin holes. Then add approx. 1 tsp. of each of your vegetables and protein; crumble a thin layer of feta cheese on the ingredients. Fill the remainder of the egg muffin with egg whites.

Egg muffinBake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden on the top.

I hope you enjoy these delicious protein-packed breakfast muffins for all ages.

Happy healthy eating!
