Most mornings during the week, I find myself scrambling to get out the door on time, despite my best efforts to wake up early. I don’t really like to eat out for too many meals (as part of my attempt to maintain my figure as I quickly approach 30), so I normally opt to pack my own breakfast and lunch. Thus, having healthy options available that I can easily toss in my tote as I leave for work in the morning is necessary. While I usually just grab a cup of Greek yogurt or a granola bar to eat for breakfast once I get to my desk, the last few weeks I’ve found myself craving something more substantial and savory, as opposed to something sweet.
When looking for healthy, on-the-go breakfast options, I randomly stumbled upon this recipe for egg muffins from the food blog Show Me the Yummy. The recipe is very simple to follow, and I’ve been making variations of it the last few weeks by using whatever ingredients I already have on hand. While the combinations are endless, I always include some type of sautéed onions and peppers, as well as a tangy cheese, like goat or feta. Plus, at around 50 calories each, I don’t feel guilty reaching for an extra muffin as I run out the door in the morning.
