The Babysitters Club. By Ann M. Martin. Enough said. I loved these books growing up. Sometimes, I think I learned most of my life lessons from them. That and maybe Degrassi. I would lie in my bed, book in hand, munching on Red Hot Tamales, and dream of […]
I remember back in ’02, when Korea co-hosted The World Cup, the sea of red flooded the nation and everyone who was Korean stood proud. Including me. I had caught the red fever. I watched every game, flag in hand, and rooted feverishly, wanting so […]
Right now, I’m on a major health kick. Trying to shed the last of my baby weight. (I know, 2 years later, right?) And stay true to my new year’s resolutions, which is to eat clean, eat right and eat proper portions. So far, I’m doing great. I forgot how good it felt to eat healthy. And the better I eat, the less I crave. The less I crave, the better I eat! But let’s face it. Being a busy mom, to an even busier toddler, makes eating, let alone eating healthy, challenging. But take a look at these! Our Valentine’s morning breakfast: Heart Shaped, Healthy, Egg Muffins.
These egg frittatas or as Els likes to call them, egg muffins, are so easy to make. So healthy. A great source of essential morning nutrients. And perfect as a grab and go breakfast for you and your toddler.
Here’s what I used to make them:
Ingredients: (Yields 6 egg muffins)
Frozen veggie mix (I used: edamame, carrots, corn, red peppers and carrots.)
Handful of kale – Superfood!
Low fat Shredded Mozzarella (Optional)
3 tsp of water
(For your convenience, affiliate link.)
Optional: Heart shaped silicone muffin mold
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Beat the eggs. Add water. Add cracked black pepper. A pinch of salt if desired.
3. Choose and put in your fillings. I did a little bit of each.
4. Pour egg close to the top. Leave a little room for it to rise and puff up.
5. Add cheese on top if desired. I did half with cheese, and half without.
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
And top it off with a healthy smoothie for yourself and your little tot.
Smoothie Ingredients: Banana, frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, frozen mango, water and a touch of unsweetened almond milk until desired thickness, and SPINACH. (they will never know…) Put in as much as desired. I put a little bit of each. And blend!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Els and I will be munching on these all day! Because they taste just as good cold. And even better when you eat them with your hands.
1. Spending a significant amount of my time doing Melissa & Doug wooden puzzles for toddlers. Whether for play or clean up purposes. Nevertheless, spending way too much time putting them back together again. 2. Eating half eaten, half chewed, practically regurgitated food like it’s […]
