For the fitness-enthusiast, stay-home mom, career-minded individuals, and everything-else-in-between, I offer you a lifesaver: healthy breakfast muffins.
What makes these healthy breakfast muffins so outstanding? They’re filled with proteins, various nutrients, and can be prepared in advance. May I also add you can freeze them for a week and microwave them for 30-60 seconds when faced with an extra busy morning? In my opinion, eating healthy is 100% feasible regardless of the schedule you may have.
In New York I worked three jobs, coached and mentored girls in a non-profit, and trained for my races. The best way I maintained my focus and a clear mind was with a clean breakfast and morning workout. I’m serious. While I loved the delicious pastries from Maison Kayser for breakfast, I often felt lethargic the entire day because of the negative nutritional value. Check out how easy the recipe is below!
- 9 Large Eggs
- 1 Tofu Sausage
- 1 1/2 Cups Kale/Spinach Mix
- 1 Medium Tomato
- 1/2 Cup Red Bellpepper
- 1/2 Cup Green Bellpepper
- 1/2 Cup Yellow Bellpepper
- 1/3 Cup Portobella Mushrooms
- 1 Teaspoon of Pepper
- Dash of Sea Salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Finely chop the kale/spinach mix and then steam. Steaming it allows it to fold into the egg mix easier.
- Chop the rest of the vegetables to your personal preference of size. I prefer mine to be on the smaller size.
- Heat up the tofu sausage as described in the package and then mince the meat.
- Whisk the eggs and then add the tofu sausage, vegetables, pepper, and salt. Pour mixture into greased muffin tin. Pam, butter, or coconut oil are acceptable. Fill the tin 3/4 full, then bake for 18-25min, or until it slightly browns on the sides.
- Eat immediately, or allow to cool and store in freezer zip-lock bag. To serve from the freezer simply heat up muffin for 30-60 seconds.
- These are great on their own or with 1/4 cup of cottage cheese and fresh fruit.
TIP: You can essentially add whatever vegetables you like. The ones listed above are of my personal preference.
