How to Make a nutrient-rich and healthy breakfast
Are you constantly in a rush in the mornings and never have enough time to make a nutrient-rich and healthy breakfast before work?
If so, perhaps meal prepping your breakfast the night before or a few days in advance can help you in leading a healthier lifestyle. If your goal is to be built like The Rock, a bit slimmer, or anywhere in-between: protein in the morning is a necessity. Protein reduces your levels of hunger and leaving you feeling full for much longer than any other macronutrient. Continue reading for a healthy egg muffin recipe that will take your mornings to a whole new level of healthy and can be prepared days in advance for those rushed mornings.
You will need:
4-6 large eggs/egg whites
2 bell peppers chopped
4 slices of bacon/turkey bacon
1 cup of spinach chopped
(optional: ½ cup of cheese)
Preheat your oven to 350*F.
Start off laying 4 slices of your bacon or turkey bacon into a pan on medium heat until it is cooked all the way through. Chop up your bacon
into smaller pieces, and set it aside. Toss your chopped bell peppers into the same pan.
Cook them until they are almost fully cooked, and then add in your chopped spinach to wilt it down. Once that is wilted down, place your mixture of peppers, spinach, and chopped bacon to the bottom of several hollows of a silicon muffin tray. Then, beat your eggs or egg whites
in a separate bowl with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the eggs over your vegetables in the muffin tray and place it into the oven for 10-12 minutes. You will be able to tell if your eggs are finished when there is no runny parts of the egg left. If you will be storing these to eat on another morning, you may leave them slightly undercooked, so when you warm them up in the microwave, they will not so overcooked and rubbery.
Wait for them to cool, and then put them in a container and place them in the refrigerator. You can store these up to 4 days. In the morning, you simply have to warm up these egg muffins in the microwave for a minute and a half, and eat a few of them for a filling and nutrient-dense breakfast.
