The one time she cooked

I actually cook meals often. They are not fancy, but they get the job done. For the past couple of weeks I have been following the Isagenix plan poorly. That's okay, I learned a lot about myself and I am working each day to improve my diet.   I plan to continue drinking Isagenix shakes 1-2x a day as needed, but want to incorperate more meals that are healthy for the whole family.  

One of the worst meal times in our family is breakfast. We all often reach for high sugar fast foods, donuts, bear claws, pop tarts, sugary cereal and while I tend to eat healthier items. The family picks the worst morning foods. Then the foods  are in the house and I end up eating them. My goal is to slowly transition to healthier items for breakfast. My husband is cheese and dairy free and doesn't eat eggs much so I have to get creative.  This breakfast meal is not for him, it is for me and the baby since she is eating more table foods.

Egg Muffins are super simple and can be low calorie, low carbs and easy to make. I love making these as you can make any variety and keep it pretty low calorie.  Last night I made: turkey sausage,  egg beaters, onion, brussel sprouts and tossed in some spinach dip spices.

 Everything you need except the sausage

 Cook meat and veggies, drain any grease and then scoop 1/4 cup of the mixture into each muffin tin.
Of course, grease or spray muffin tin with non stick spray first. I know I am listing it all out of order.
Then pour egg beaters in to each tin, I used just over 2 tablespoons of egg beater per muffin cup. 

Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Time may vary depending on your oven. 
And there you go! All cooked up and ready to eat. I store in a Tupperware container in the fridge until I am ready to reheat and eat. You could wrap and freeze and microwave you want them. This combo is about 75 calories per muffin. Eat alone, or add a side - also they are easy to add to a English muffin for a sandwich in the morning for a breakfast on the go.

Have you ever made egg muffins? Do you have a favorite combo? I used chorizo one time and it was so good! Calories were a little higher but yummmm!
