Turkey and Spinach Egg Muffins

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. On our journey to get healthier my wife and I talked about how having breakfast everyday, especially a healthy one, really kicked started our metabolisms. The problem was that no matter how many different types of smoothies we had, we always found that by the end of the week we were craving something else, and as I’m sure you know, one of the number 1 things that can throw a wrench into any weight loss plan is cravings. What we discovered we were craving was that good ‘ol bacon and eggs breakfast that was a morning staple at least once or twice a week in our household. This simple recipe helps to fill that void in a couple of quick little bites and sends those cravings packing

If you enjoy this recipe and want to make it in bigger batches we usually double all the ingredients except the eggs, instead we use 6 eggs and add 3/4 cups of egg whites to the bowl as well.  Enjoy!!
