These 21 Day Fix Mediterranean Egg Cups with Goat Cheese and Basil are a a healthy and flavorful make-ahead breakfast that’s perfect for meal-prepping!
Howdy peeps! How’s your summer going so far? We’ve had lots of company since school ended and have enjoyed every single minute of it. Until our visitors came we hadn’t been able to see any of our friends and family for a whole year, so having them here felt so wonderfully… normal. I love when people come to see us and we get to share all of the cool things about wherever we’re living. It’s so much fun, like being a tourist in your own town.
What doesn’t always work out so well when we have visitors? Eating well and working out. I know you feel me. I could probably accomplish both if I had a mind to.
But I so don’t.
I look at having visitors like it’s my version of a hall pass, but instead of meeting* a handsome stranger I get to eat brie and drink all the wine. It’s totally better anyhow.
It’s ok though, because I know the best way to get myself back on track and I think it could help you too if you’ve gone off the rails recently.
If you have time for nothing else, do yourself a favor and prep an awesome make-ahead 21 Day Fix breakfast. I can muster up the will to make myself lunch (if for some reason I haven’t prepped it), but in the morning I’ve got nothing in me and if my breakfast isn’t ready and waiting, I’ll skip it even though I know I shouldn’t. I’m the worst.
And then what happens? I have no fuel in the tank for my workout, so I skip that too.
Ugh. It’s a vicious cycle. So let’s stop the madness and make these ridiculously delicious egg cups instead. #smart
You guys. I’ve always liked egg cups well enough. They’re easy, they’ve got veggies and don’t use a yellow and that’s cool.
But THESE. These are next level egg cups and you need them in your life.
The basil. The roasted red peppers. The GOAT CHEESE! They’re still super simple and pretty quick to make and they have me looking forward to breakfast every morning. I usually pair them with some fruit and I’m fully fueled for my workout. Boom.
Just a few easy steps and you can be eating these right now! Oh, it’s dinner time? I totally ate these for dinner last night, you’re good.
Check it out:
Start with 10 eggs.
Add in 2/3 cup of plain, unsweetened almond milk…
And the garlic powder, salt and pepper:
Whisk it up!
Stir in the roasted red peppers and the mushrooms.
Then divide the mixture between 12 cups in a muffin tin and bake for 25 minutes.
Top with some fresh basil and goat cheese and enjoy!
* Yes, this is a euphemism. 😉
