Recipe: The “egg muffin” that’s actually good for you

I’m certain you’re going to love today’s blog post…

Because today we’ve got a breakfast recipe for you.

And not just any regular breakfast — this is a bite-sized twist on one of the most popular breakfast choices…

Muffins.

And it’s perfect for busy mornings when you want something quick, delicious, and great for the health of your hands and feet.

But we aren’t just talking about some regular style “cupcake” like muffin…

Instead, ours is going to feature a food that’s been a staple of breakfasts everywhere for centuries — eggs.

That’s because eggs are a great source of B12, a vitamin known to help reduce the symptoms related to neuropathy.

Not only that, the B12 in the yolk of the egg is much easier to absorb than in many other foods.

Which is great for you — because you’ll be improving the health of your hands and feet and enjoying a delicious meal at the same time.

(Pretty impressive, right?)

Now, our healthy hand recipe also requires another nutrient-rich component — veggies.

But this is the fun part…

The kind of veggies you choose are entirely up to you.

And for today, we’re going to use our favorite go-to choices — spinach, bell peppers, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.

This veggie combo is loaded with some of the best vitamins for healthy skin — A, B6, C, and K.

Plus, the cherry tomatoes are a great source of lycopene, a potent antioxidant that promotes smooth, radiant skin. (2)

Here’s how to make your own:

Prep Time: 10 min. Cook time: 20-25 min.

Ingredients
12 large eggs
2 cups finely-diced veggies (spinach, bell peppers, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, or your faves)
½ cup crumbled goat cheese (optional)
Sea salt and pepper

Directions
Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Next, spray a 12-cup muffin pan with either olive oil or avocado oil.

Whisk your eggs in a large bowl with pinches of salt and pepper.

Now, add your veggies to the muffin cups.

Pour your eggs into each muffin cup, filling them about 3/4 full.

And if you decide to add goat cheese, sprinkle a dash on top of each muffin.

(Goat cheese is packed with essential vitamin A, vitamin B, riboflavin, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium. It’s incredible.) (3)

Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes, then remove them from the oven.

Now allow your muffins to cool, then store them in the fridge.

Your muffins should be good for up to 5 days in the fridge — a little longer if you decide to freeze them.

And whenever you’re ready for breakfast, just pop one in the microwave or toaster oven for around 30 seconds or until hot.

So, give these a try and start your day off right. I know you’ll love them as much as we do.
