Healthy and Simple Scrambled Egg Muffins

Good Morning LOVElies!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Hands down. I am a frequent advocate for “Brinner”… you know breakfast for dinner? Well, it is a thing in my house. We are usually so busy in the morning that I miss out on my favorite wholesome eggy, protein packed breakfasts. That was  until I perfected my breakfast meal prep and discovered how to make these delicious scrambled egg muffins. They are packed with veggies and flavor.

For some reason every summer I end up with an obnoxious amount of peppers, zucchini, and basil which is why this has become my go to recipe in the warmer months, but you can substitute the veggies for whatever you have available at the moment. Anything that you could see yourself throwing into your scrambled eggs is completely fair game! These are a little Italian inspired, so sometimes I like to add some Italian sausage for extra protein..

I’ve also subbed cilantro and some pepper for the basil and the Italian seasoning to make this recipe a little more Mexican inspired.. and of course served with salsa.

Am I getting those creative juices flowing?

Healthy and Simple Scrambled Egg Muffins

Here is what I do for meal prep:

I usually make these on Sunday and keep them in an airtight container in the fridge throughout the week. They will keep for about 4 days, which should almost get you through your week. If you want to make these last even longer… double the batch and individually wrap them and store in your freezer (they can easily be thawed and heated in your microwave).

Easy enough, am I right?

Dive on in guys and enjoy these healthy and simple scrambled egg muffins!

“Steak is an excellent source of protein, and if a trim cut is consumed, it can be an excellent source of iron as well. The majority of the health benefits of the steak salad, however, come from the variety of fruits and vegetables that are used. Most provide a wide range of vitamins and minerals and can create a brightly colored meal.”

This Asian inspired Steak salad is packed with freshly greens, tomato slices, boiled eggs, and sauté Steak with Organic oyster sauce, red onions, garlic and a squeeze of lime… Mmmmm deliciously YUM!!! 😉
