I love breakfast

morning, friends!

if i could, i would eat breakfast for every meal. whether it's eggs, pancakes, cereal, granola, yogurt-i love it all! if i don't feel like baking a dessert (like right now, when i have THREE different types of ice cream in the freezer-dangerous!), i go looking for the next best thing-a good breakfast recipe!

i found this one on one of my favorite blogs, and it sounded wonderful so i decided to try it about a month ago.  it's now my favorite thing to make for breakfast-it has all the key ingredients for a healthy, stick-with-you, delish dish: protein, vitamins, and of course FLAX. love me some flax.

i changed up the recipe a bit, so here is the one i used:

5 egg whites
1 Tablespoon flax seed meal
1/3 cup skim milk
feta cheese
salt and pepper
1/2 cup combined chopped green peppers, red peppers, broccoli

2 pieces Ezekiel brand toast

preheat the oven to 350 and mix all the ingredients together.  this recipe is great because you can change it up according to your preferences.  like carrots? throw em in! hate broccoli? throw 'em away! like onions? SHAME.

anyway, continuing on...spray a six cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray (or rub each well with coconut oil for some added health benefits!) and pour the egg mixture into each well.  bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the tops of the eggs have turned a crispy light brown and inside egg is all nice and cooked.

then pop some toast in the toaster, butter her up, pair with the eggs, and enjoy!

this is a breakfast worth waking up for!

i had mine this time with Ezekiel cinnamon raisin bread topped with peanut butter with flax and cinnamon. super filling and satisfying. try this recipe out and let me know what you think! the eggs would also be good with a fresh fruit salad or some pancakes.

what is YOUR favorite meal of the day?
