Stuffed Egg Muffins – Serves 10

New Year.  New Recipes.  Bring it.

Thought I would start the first day of the new year off properly with a recipe posting.  This is a great creation that can serve as breakfast, a post-workout snack, lunch or dinner.  With time being of essence sometimes it is simply wonderful to grab something that is nutrient dense to the core and hit the road – shelf date is about one week from the day of creation.

Each muffin contains a variety of vegetables allowing for antioxidant, vitamin, and mineral consumption along with protein from the eggs.  This dish is also gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free therefore get ready to make this a staple in your life.  As many may or may not know, gluten acts as an inflammatory agent, if you are experiencing some aches, bloating, or abdominal discomfort – it may be time to try an elimination diet aka removing gluten-based items for a bit to see if you can recognize any changes.  The recommended serving is 2 muffins buuuuuut as we all know sometimes it is hard to stop at just that amount.

Try these lean and delicious muffins today.
