Packed with veggies and protein, these egg muffins will give you a great boost to start your day and stay awake and focused throughout the morning. According to health.com
, eggs are one of the best breakfast foods to keep you healthy and energized thanks to their high protein and vitamin D content. They also provide choline, a nutrient that can be difficult to acquire but that is believed to reduce anxiety and to support memory. Now that's a powerful breakfast food!
One of the greatest things about these egg muffins is that most or even all of the prep work can be done beforehand. You can easily bake them at night and then save them in the fridge for up to four days, you could freeze them for longer storage and simply defrost the night before, or you could prep the veggies beforehand and easily assemble and bake the muffins in 15-20 minutes in the morning. All those options make these egg muffins the perfect breakfast for anyone's morning schedule!
