Meal Prep Recipe: Veggie Egg Muffins
Ahh, breakfast. It's usually the most neglected (ok, maybe next to snacks) meal of the day- and certainly for meal prepping mamas. But breakfast can be a C-RAZY time of the day! At least it is in my house, and I only have 1.25 kids (and a husband, the .25 is in my belly!). So why wouldn't we think to put time and effort ahead of time into making one of the craziest times of the day easier? That's what I thought.
There are so many awesome meal prep options for breakfast- many of which I cover (and demo) in Healthy Mama Meal Prep. Chia seed pudding, yogurt jars, super smoothies, or my favorite- and a staple in the Healthy Mama Kris house... egg muffins. As you'll see in the video, these babies are SUPER quick to come together, they don't take long in the oven and they keep well in the fridge for the whole week (though I promise, they won't last that long!) and the whole family loves them. They're like individual crustless quiches, and they make the perfect quick breakfast at home or on the go.
