Bacon & Egg Breakfast Cups

So this is one of those "a recipe that isn't a recipe" things. This is more of a suggestion/telling you that  you should probably make these. Not only are they delicious, they're portable, and the flavor combinations are endless (well, not endless, but there's a lot of them). Plus, they're a great breakfast solution for when you don't want to stand over a stove making bacon and eggs, not that I have any experience with that or anything. Anyways, breakfast!

Step 1: BACON

I cut my bacon into 2 pieces (not equal, I cut about 1/3 off) and place one piece on the bottom of your ramekin (or muffin tin). Arrange the longer second piece around the edges of the ramekin/tin.

 

Step 2: EGGS

Simply crack an egg into each ramekin or tin. If you prefer scrambled eggs, go ahead and scramble them then pour the egg mix into each tin (fill about 2/3 way full). Season with salt and pepper.

At this point, you can also add some veggies, cheese, or anything else you'd like. If you use veggies like spinach, mushrooms, or anything with a high water content, saute them first, try to press out as much water as possible, then add to mix.

 

Step 3: BAKE, TOP, EAT

Bake in a 400F oven for about 15-20 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking. Let them cool for 5 minutes, then remove them from baking vessel. Top with whatever your heart desires.

 

See? Easy.

2-Ingredient Sweet Potato Bites

One of the most difficult things about the Whole30 challenge for me has been eating real food after workouts. My stomach is okay with it after pure strength workouts but workouts with any conditioning aspect leave me not wanting to eat. I've been choking down some baked chicken breast and diced sweet potato after workouts and I don't mind it all that much - but I am getting sick of it. So, to combat some food boredom I decided to whip up some portable little "bites" that I could take with me to the gym. DSC_1804_06

These bites contain sweet potato, egg whites, and that's is. Oh, and some cinnamon for a little added flavor and because I'm obsessed with cinnamon. Each small bite contains 20 calories, 4g carbs, and 2g protein. A serving of 6 bites has 130 calories, 20g carbs, and 11g protein. While they won't replace my entire post-workout meal (I need more protein than that), they are a welcome addition to my post-workout routine. They're also great additions to meals or a perfect snack paired with some almond butter (drool). Plus, they're really delicious - they taste just like sweet potato with cinnamon and don't really have an "eggy" sort of taste of them.
