3 Easy & Eggs-cellent Breakfast Recipes

By Katrina Scott on

You know that having a healthy, nutrient-packed breakfast is SO important to set you up for your day! When you have a balanced brekkie with a combination of protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs, you’ll feel more energized, satisfied, and you’ll avoid blood sugar spikes and crashes. 

For us, it’s so important to have some easy, go-to recipes in the rotation so we don’t have to overthink it first thing in the morning. Some of our favorites are egg muffins (prep ‘em on Sundays and have all week) and scrambles (just toss everything together and you’re done!). Plus, eggs are amazing because they’re packed with satiating protein and choline, an essential nutrient for our brain health and metabolism that we don’t often get enough of. 

Check out three of our go-to egg recipes ~ try one for brunch this weekend!
