We love eggs. They are a nutritional juggernaut and are as good as a meal as they are as a snack. That’s why this recipe is awesome: it’s where delicious meets on-the-go. Let’s talk about what makes it so great:
- The Star Ingredient: Eggs take centre stage here. Bringing in approximately 6 grams of protein per egg, they provide a substantial protein boost to fuel your day and can help you stay full for longer. But that's not all! Eggs are also rich in energizing vitamin B12 and brain-boosting choline, making them a perfect addition to your morning routine.
- Veggies Galore: We all know the importance of incorporating a wide variety of vegetables into our diet to meet our antioxidant and vitamin needs. However, it can be challenging to consume enough veggies throughout the day. These bites offer a convenient and delicious way to sneak in those essential nutrients. With a diverse range of vegetables tucked into each bite, you'll effortlessly satisfy your recommended daily vegetable intake.
So, whether you're looking for a protein-packed breakfast, a lunchtime wrap filler, or a quick and nutritious snack, our Veggie Egg Bites have got you covered. Here’s what you need to make 12 egg bites in 40 minutes:
