In my opinion eggs are just about the world's most perfect food. They are loaded with 13 essential vitamins and minerals known to promote health. One nutrient of note is something called choline. Choline is important for the processes in your body that support building DNA, exchanging signals in the brain and detoxification in your liver! Very cool stuff! Eggs are also an amazing source of zeaxanthin and Lutein, which are believed to reduce the risk of cataracts as well as macular degeneration. They contain vitamin D too! Vitamin D deficiency is very common and can be hard to find in foods. Aside from being little nutrient powerhouses they are also one of the most affordable sources of protein in the market these days and all while only containing 70 calories per egg. Winning.
I'm one of those people that like to prep as many of my meals on the weekends as possible so my Monday-Friday is as easy as possible. One thing I've started doing recently is baking them in muffin tins! As you can see from the picture, they come out in these perfect little rounds all ready to go.
These are super easy to make and all you need is a muffin pan. Take some non stick spray or olive oil and spray the inside of your muffin pan really well. Then crack an egg into each hole. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minute or until they are set. Allow to cool for a few minutes and pop them out! Viola! Eggs to go!
One egg will reheat in the microwave in about 20 seconds. I'm a fan of toasting an english muffin, putting on of these babies on it and taking it to go. I'm very guilty of eating in the car first thing in the morning. You can add a lot of different vegetables to yours to change it up and add even more nutrition into your morning. Try adding pepeprs, onions and spinach to yours before you bake them. Delish.
I don't care who you are, these recipes are for you! They're all jam packed with health promoting nutrients.. disease fighting superpowers and above all ... deliciousness!
