I love to cook. There’s no doubt about that. Any chance I can meal prep, try a recipe or come up with a dish – I’m there! But, as much as I would love to be superwoman who can juggle work and a life, I’m not. I’m just like every typical millennial in this city – BUSY!
Like you, I have a busy lifestyle as well. Living in the city doesn’t give you much time to breathe and relax. There is always an errand to do, pile of laundry to put away, an appointment to get to or friends to meet for dinner. In my juggling act, I don’t like having to resort to ready made meals from the store, food in cans or boxes and fast food (don’t get me wrong, I love me a quarter pounder BLT anyday).
Meal prepping is the key to my stress-free days. I like to prep meals that will last the week, or at least until Thursday. Dishes that will stay fresh and taste great. I also like meals that I can easily store and pop into a container for my lunch or “to-go” breakfast.
Breakfast – I can’t live without it! I don’t know how people get by without eating the most important meal of the day! I will literally faint if I don’t have anything before I’m out the door. But who has the time to sit down and have a deliciously poached egg with toast and a cup of strong coffee? Don’t we all wish?!
My egg muffins to-go are a staple in my weekly meal prep. I pop a couple of these into a small container and into my lunch bag. It’s the perfect mid-morning breakfast when I’m running late for work (which is often). I usually have these around 11 AM as a 2nd breakfast. My first breakfast being a Green Smoothie.
There are so many different ways to make these. Different mixes. But this is my go to favourite. Quick and easy ingredients! Healthy as well.
One major advice – SPRAY YOUR MUFFIN PAN WITH LOTS OF PAM! Or else you will end up with the worst cleaning job ever!
