Breakfast On The Go

 

4 Easy Egg Breakfasts You Can Eat on the Go

Mornings can be stressful. You can feel rushed or just run out of time before leaving the house for the day. You know that “life happens.”

Although starting the day with a protein-packed breakfast is important – convenience is king. Reinvent your healthy breakfast and make it to go – with eggs!

What is great about having an egg dish for breakfast is how versatile eggs are – eggs can be scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, baked, and so much more. Not to mention all of the healthy nutrients found in eggs, like choline, which stimulates brain development and function and has also been linked with increasing memory retention.

Here are four ways you can make a healthy breakfast, to go:

  1. In a burrito: The perfect, one-hand solution….wrapped up in a soft tortilla shell. You can even whip up these Loaded Egg Burritos, by Food Blogger Inside BruCrew Life, on Sunday for the entire week and throw them in the freezer. Then, just pop them in the microwave before you leave in the morning.
  2. In a muffin: Just like the burritos, you can make Egg Muffins for the week and just reheat them in the morning before you leave. What’s great about this recipe is you can add your favorite meats, veggies and cheeses in each muffin – making it completely customizable.
  3. In a coffee cup: In less than three minutes, you can have Scrambled Eggs in a Coffee Cup! Quick and easy – this is the ultimate “to go” breakfast.
  4. In a bowl: All Sausage & Cheddar Omelet needs is a bowl and one minute in the microwave. Tip: don’t overcook the eggs as they will continue to cook and firm up after removed from the microwave.

What’s your favorite on-the-go breakfast?

Get Crackin’ On New Year’s Resolutions

 

What’s your 2021 resolution? One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to be healthier – from better eating habits to working out more frequently.

Although making a positive change for a healthy lifestyle can be challenging, an easy way to stay on track is to incorporate protein into your diet. One large egg contains six grams of high-quality protein, which helps with maintaining a healthy weight and building muscle mass.

The protein found in eggs is one of the highest-quality and most affordable proteins available. Because eggs are so versatile, they can be incorporated into any meal of the day – from omelets for breakfast and hard-boiled eggs as mid-day snacks to casseroles at lunch or dinner.

Research shows that enjoying eggs in the morning can reduce caloric intake throughout the rest of the day, prevent snacking between meals and keep an appetite satisfied on those busy days when meals are delayed.

Not only will eggs leave you feeling fuller longer than other breakfast foods, but one egg also contains 8 essential nutrients for only 70 calories.

More than half of Americans will stop working toward their New Year’s resolution after one month. But with eggs, a resolution of eating healthier doesn’t have to end because they’re so easy to prepare! Whip up simple and nutritious recipes like an Easy Egg Breakfast Casserole, Southwestern Turkey Sausage Egg Cups or a Frozen Berry Smoothie featuring hard-boiled eggs!
