Do you often forget to eat breakfast? Do you tend to run late and grab a not-so-healthy choice in the morning, just to get something in your system?
I used to have a very bad habit of not eating breakfast, but skipping your morning meal can wreak havoc with your metabolism. It's important to start the day off right, and that includes eating a healthy meal. I try to eat something every morning. Something with protein is a good choice because it helps you to feel full longer.
Healthy meals can be fast, as long as you plan ahead. I came up with the idea of making these egg cups one day when Kaylee was putting eggs away. She dropped them on the floor and 5 of them cracked. Rather than throwing them away, I put one egg in each slot in a muffin pan and baked them.
It is so incredibly easy! They taste just like a hardboiled egg, but there is no hassle of peeling the egg. You can bake up a batch at the beginning of each week. Then just grab an egg or two and a piece of fruit and you have a healthy breakfast to start your day off.
You can also vary this recipe by scrambling the eggs and adding some of your favorite veggies to the mixture.
