    I’ve seen those egg muffins on Pinterest before and always think about trying them. Glad to hear from a “real life” person that’s tested out the recipe. I’ll have to finally make some!

      Next time I would add some turkey sausage or something to it. It needs a little more protein, but other than that it’s delicious.

    Funny – I do the egg muffins when the boys have friends over at breakfast since they can all customize 3 or 4 each but I never thought about doing them as a make ahead breakfast – great idea!!

      I’ve been eating them all week for breakfast and they are working great!

    Quickie meals for me are usually leftovers LOL! I usually make one large dish or at least a bunch of cooked chicken to make it easier. I will say that Balance Bars have saved me in a pinch many a time.

      I like doing leftovers too. Sometimes by the third or fourth day of leftovers though…… πŸ™‚

    I love to follow your blog and your menu choices are helpful. With the chicken salad you said you made it for the week and put it in Tupperware. Does it stay as tasty on the 5th day as it did on the 1st? I love the idea of doing a week’s worth of meals on the week-end. Who wants to spend time daily thinking about meals!

      Yes! The chicken salad and the muffins are still tasty and holding up. Today is day 4.

    I’ve been making fruit/veg protein smoothies and putting them in mason jars πŸ™‚ Trying really really hard to be healthy.

    Max has a date with Amy on the 15th, and he’s pretty excited. I think he’s going to make her a Valentine. (hi Amy).

    I’ve heard the egg muffins are also good with cottage cheese. I think Kalyn’s Kitchen has the recipe. I also went through my weirdo flax muffin phase but they’re a little dry to take on the road. I’m still loving my juices lately, fresh from home or Evolution Fresh. I swear the nutrients cure cravings and keep hunger away (they have to be mostly vegetables).

    I just ordered some PURE bars

      Oooh love the idea of cottage cheese!!

    …some PURE bars and they’re pretty good. Like a larabar but in chocolatey flavors (sorry, my iPad freezes up sometimes. first world problems)

      Luna Bars are my favorite protein bars.

    Egg muffin?! I don’t know such food exists!. It seems so healthy, yet very delicious. I would love to try this. I’m sure my boys would love it, most especially that they love eggs. πŸ™‚ Thank you!
