Valentine Breakfast: Heart-Shaped Egg Muffins
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. They’re also healthy and a great source of essential morning nutrients. Not to mention, 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)
Finely diced fresh or 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
Salt and Pepper
(For your convenience, affiliate link.)
Optional: Heart shaped silicone muffin mold
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Beat the eggs. Add water. Add salt and cracked black pepper to your personal taste.
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.
Again, these are so easy.
And of course, delicious.
Finally, don’t forget to 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!
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. Overall, we are having a great Valentine’s Day!
