It’s time you had a good breakfast. And trust me, you do have the time.
We all know how brutal the 9-5 work life can be. Especially when you have an ugly commute to wake up to. Or if you have kids to send off to school.
No matter your situation, it can be tough enough getting up and out without having to worry about what to eat for breakfast.
All clichés aside, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Your body just fasted all night, this meal determines your body’s energy source for the first half of the day.
Remember from our ‘Abs Are Made In the Kitchen‘ post, you are actually what you eat. So, what you choose to eat will determine the quality of your energy, overall mood, mental strength, and how you feel physically.
It’s important to start the day healthy, with protein-packed foods that will digest slowly to steadily release energy throughout the day, well beyond the typical caffeine rush from your morning cup of coffee.
Here is a perfect and healthy meal prep recipe for healthy on-the-goers. Packed with protein, healthy energy, and amazing flavor, these guys are great to grab when you’re late and make for an easy delicious breakfast. For those who like things spicy, we have a couple of options for you. Enjoy!
PEPPERS AND PROTEIN EGG CUPS
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Olive Oil
- 8 eggs
- Green Bell Peppers
- Red Bell Pepper
- Jalapeno pepper (if you like spicy)
- Garlic Salt
Preheat your oven to 350o . Slice up your onion and your green and red peppers. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet and sauté the veggies with salt and pepper. Don’t cook them ALL the way through, they still have to go in the oven. Grab a muffin pan and spray the tins with non-stick cooking spray. Scoop your veggie mix in even amounts into each of the empty tins. Set aside.
Crack and whisk your eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add garlic salt and pepper to taste. Pour your egg mixture over the peppers in each of the muffin tins. Make sure there is an even amount in each one. Dice your jalapeno pepper and sprinkle some into each tin. Place the muffin pan, with all your ingredients into the preheated oven for 20min or until eggs are nice and fluffy.
You can keep these guys refrigerated for up to 4 days. Grab one, heat it up, throw some hot sauce on that thing (if you’re me), and eat on the go.
Make sure to wait at least an hour afterwards before hitting the gym!
