Broccoli Quinoa Egg Muffins

November 24, 2020 | Recipes


INGREDIENTS

8 eggs (I usually do 5 whole, 3 whites.. or however you prefer)
1/2 c cottage cheese
1/4 c shredded cheese of choice
2 cups veggies of choice
1 c cooked quinoa
1.5 tsp onion powder
1.5 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes 



DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350, spray muffin tin generously with cooking spray. **I use a silicone muffin tray and it works a million times better! No sticking!!**

Beat eggs in large mixing bowl. Add cheeses and spices, stir to combine. Add quinoa, veggies (I usually do broccoli) and mix.

Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full, top with a little shredded cheese (if you want). Bake 20 minutes. Broil for a couple minutes at the end for a crispier golden brown top (optional). Let cool for 10 minutes then serve.

Refrigerate for up to 5 days. These can also be frozen for later use!! 

These are a great breakfast option for any meal program you’re following! They are a great combo of protein and FFC’s!


What the heck is an FFC and why do I include them in my nutrition? A fiber filled AKA “good” carb is essential to our bodies. Think of it as energy or fuel. Think about it.. when do you need the most energy? For most of us, it’s in the morning when we’re gearing up for our day and then around midday when we still have a few more hours of work to power through and whatever after work hustle and bustle we’ve got going on! Carbs are not the enemy, they are full of life giving energy! It’s just a matter of knowing which ones work best for your body and are the best nutritional bang for your buck! 🤗I share all this and more in my nutrition course!
