Breakfast Muffins

I struggle with breakfast. As I am running out the door it is so easy to grab something and that something is never healthy. It is necessary for me to plan if I am going to make smart food choices and these breakfast muffins make a good afternoon snack as well as a healthy breakfast! I make them on Sunday evening so I have them for the week. Now, meal planning is not my thing. I am terrible at it. For some reason it overwhelms me so when I make something as simple as these egg muffins I get a little to excited!

Here is my recipe:

12 eggs beaten

3 T water

2 handfuls of chopped baby spinach

2 T bacon bits

any other topping you like!

Salt and pepper

Whisk it all together! Be sure to use non-stick cooking spray and fill your muffin pan. Cook for 15-20 min at 400 degrees. Let cool and store in the fridge.

Heat in the microwave for 25 seconds and you have a yummy, hot breakfast! Enjoy!

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips

Looking for a quick, refreshing, and delicious summer snack? Look no further!

Here in the South, we’re known for turning just about anything into a dip or salsa. If you can scoop it, lather it, or dip it with a cracker, you’ve got a winner, winner, chicken dinner. If you’ve noticed, though, these popular dips can often leave you feeling a bit stuffed, am I right? I may or may not have highly overindulged in a friend’s homemade pimento cheese recently… okay, I did.

This summer, why don’t you give this super light, perfectly sweet FRUIT salsa a try? Not only will it satisfy your snack cravings, but it’ll treat your waistline right!

What is your very favorite summer fruit?

If I had to pick just one fruit to eat all summer, it would be watermelon. It’s crisp, sweet, hydrating, and isn’t too sweet!

For this salsa, you don’t have to play fruit favorites. Pick ’em all! That’s what’s so great about this recipe: you can customize it to what you’ve got available in your kitchen. Check out the list below to see what I used my last go ’round!
