Food Prep Fun!

This week I went about my food prep a little differently, and it was a lot of fun!

For once I actually prepped breakfast. Typically I just throw oatmeal in a baggie and some fruit and call it a day, but this week I made Zoodle Egg Nests and they came out great.

I love eggs. It is one of the (slightly) weird things about me. I’d be happy to have eggs for dinner almost every night and still be able to wake-up and eat them for breakfast. For me, they are simple and delicious and so easy to make that I cannot seem to stay away from them. This week I took my egg obsession to a different level with the Zoodle Nests.

Creating something new felt fun, and I was enjoying tossing the zoodles, tomatoes, eggs, and Parmesan cheese in a dish to be mixed up and popped into muffin tins. The result after 20 minutes in the oven and a little spillage on the bottom of the oven? Delicious egg muffins that had veggies in them!

I added pepper to the egg to give them more flavor and it came through really nicely. Tomorrow I might try them with a touch of hot sauce, but overall I really enjoyed them. They made for a great breakfast at my desk with a side of fruit.

Finding Healthy New Recipes

I am all about breakfast. It has always unfathomable to me that some people do not eat breakfast. I couldn’t do it, I don’t know how they live without morning fuel.

My breakfast sets the tone for the whole day so I try to make sure that it is healthy and filling. I used to eat Greek yogurt with fresh berries for breakfast every morning, but the yogurt started to upset my stomach so I switched to my old favorite of oatmeal.

In my morning oatmeal I have half a cup of oats, a tablespoon of almond butter, and

 

then some fresh fruit on top. I like to have strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, but I’ve seen some people add apple, peach, or pear and that is a hit too. While I love my oatmeal, I am starting to get a little sick of it and want to try something new.

That is when I stumbled on the recipe for these egg nests, they are basically egg muffins with veggies. I first saw a tutorial on Instagram on Inspiralized that gave me the idea to look for Zoodle Egg Muffin recipes that I could complete in my own kitchen.

I found this recipe that I cannot wait to try this weekend. I love that these little muffins pack in protein and veggies, which is often missing from my morning routine. I can’t wait to have these for breakfast with a side of delicious fruit.
