HEALTHY BREAKFAST FOODS

I HATE BREAKFAST...unless it's brunch! I am not one of those get-up-and-get-going kind of gals. I move r...e.....a.....l.....l.....y  s....l.....o.....w most mornings, and the thought of fixing breakfast - and EATING breakfast early in the day - makes me queasy. But, as we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

So I have come up with a wonderful solution...mini omelet cups.  I bake once, then bag to keep in the freezer, just waiting to be popped into the microwave for just a minute. The recipe is simple...and in my flexi-muffin pan, it's super easy cleanup! Best of all, I can eat when I want...and MacDaddy can have his EARLY breakfast with little fuss... You just pop the Omelet Cup into the microwave for a minute or so, and you're good to go...

Omelet Cups

6-8 eggs
swiss cheese (or any other cheese), grated
fresh spinach
a splash of milk
***You can add bacon, sausage or ham, if desired.

With a whisk, scramble the eggs in a mixing bowl. Set aside.  Put a little grated cheese in each muffin cup. (If you are not using a flexi-pan, be sure to oil or spray the muffin cups). Top with a little freshly chopped spinach. Pour egg mixture into each cup...about 3/4 of the way to the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 - 15 minutes, or until lightly golden on top. Remove from the over, let cool in the pan for a few minutes. Remove from muffin tray and either eat, or cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy... 
If freezing, store in an airtight container or a freezer bag. (Put a little water into any empty well...to protect your pan)

My other "new" breakfast - lunch - snack food is a whole grain English muffin with a little cream cheese, some sugarless strawberry preserves and sliced fresh strawberries. Not only is this delicious, it's HEALTHY!

For those of you who are not familiar with Flexi-pans....these are professional silicone and woven glass baking pans which require no oil, butter, non-stick sprays. Everything pops right out and clean up is a breeze.They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes...even decorative molds. If you want to know more, email me....

This post is one of my new favorites! I'm JUST LIKE YOU. I'm not a breakfast girl (unless it's for dinner lol). I take my mornings slow mentally. This idea is genius! I WILL be copying you Miss Jane. ;) Thank you!

Also, the comment you left on our Body for Life experience is one I'm tucking into my heart. I even called my Mom and told her to read it! You're a treasure, always. And you're also my FAVORITE blogger friend.
