Happy Fresh Start, Clean Slate New Year Errbody!🎉🎊
Isn’t New Year’s a fabulous holiday? It’s almost the only time of year that is centered on eating better, exercise, moderation and a new start.✨
Since we’re all trying to be more fit, there’s no need to explain or excuse the low-carb, high-protein, vegan, whole-30, starvation diet we’ve all just started. We’re all in this together… one happy, hungry, gigantic support group of a family. Well, for at least the next 2 weeks anyway. LOL😂
I really do enjoy eating healthful and nutritious food. Veggies are probably the first thing I go to on my plate. I know I’m strange like that.🙃
I think many times we tend to not like certain vegetables or grains because they just don’t taste very good. And to be honest I think they’re just not seasoned properly. And that doesn’t always mean salt and pepper.
There are plenty of other low-calorie/high-flavor ways to season our food. For example, fresh herbs – they add tons of flavor as well as health benefits, and little to no calories or fat.🌿
Then there’s our good friend citrus… a truly wonderful way to add flavor.🍋 I use lemon and lime juice in tons of things, like marinades for Rosemary Lemon Chicken Thighs, Chicken Satay Salad, and Lime Cilantro Shrimp. I also love using the zest from lemons, limes and oranges in my recipes as well. Like this Parmesan Broccoli, Kale Salad, and even these Cranberry Orange Creamsicle Cookies. Soo good.👌
Sometimes all you need is a little pop or zing, and delicious-tasting food doesn’t require lots of fat, sodium and calories.
Case in point: these Kale Egg Breakfast Cups… they’re quick, easy, and bursting with flavor - minus unnecessary fat and calories.🙌 I’m super-excited to share this phenomenal recipe with you. I think you’re gonna love it.💚
Why not kick start the first meal of the day with some yummy low-cal, high-protein goodness⁉️
I must tell you the best part of waking up this week has definitely been these kale breakfast cups! They’re filling and super tasty. And the perfect way to give you the energy you need to kill it at the gym, office, or at home in 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣7️⃣!
How To Make Kale Egg Breakfast Cups:
The recipe is super simple. You sauté a medium onion, three garlic cloves and mushrooms in olive oil.
Then add in ½ pound of spicy chicken sausage and cook thoroughly. Then add the sun-dried tomatoes, kale and finally the feta cheese.
Spray with a non-stick cooking spray, fill up a pan of twelve muffin cups (<-affiliate link!) with the mixture.
Then pour in the egg beaters and bake for 25-30 minutes on 350 degrees. Voila - breakfast for the whole family for a week!💫
Honestly, I’m not a big breakfast person. Usually a hit of this bulletproof coffee recipe is all I require.☕️ I’m barely coherent enough to scoop coffee grounds – there’s just no way I can scramble eggs or stir oatmeal. I think if I had something pre-made that was good for me and delicious, I would be more motivated to take part in this morning feeding ritual.🍴 #morningsarentmyjam
