Now that I’m working from home, I’m lucky enough to have the luxury of cooking interesting breakfasts day to day, but it’s very easy to lose track of time in the kitchen and I’m trying to keep to a strict schedule of work and breaks. Therefore it’s just as important for me to meal prep, even though I’m only a few seconds away from the kitchen!
Not only are these delicious egg muffins totally syn free for those of us following Slimming World, using your Healthy Extra A, but they’re also gluten free and low carb, so they’ll fit into just about any healthy lifestyle plan. If you prefer to leave out the cheese they’ll still work just as well too, so can be made dairy free if you so choose.
Meal Prepping Your Breakfast Muffins
This recipe is ideal for meal prep, because egg muffins will last in the fridge for three days. This means you can make your Breakfast Muffins on a Sunday night and not have to think about breakfast until Thursday morning. Then all you’ve got to do is make another couple of batches on Wednesday night and you’re set until the weekend! This recipe makes enough for two days, so simply scale up and down as desired.
A High Protein Snack
These breakfast muffins don’t just make a sensational breakfast, they’re also ideal to keep as a healthy snack to keep you going between meals. If you’re following Slimming World, these are also perfect for an SP day. If you’re not sure what ‘SP’ means, you can find all the info in my Easy Extra SP Explained article.
