Quick and Delicious High Protein Egg Bites
I have a recipe for egg bites in my cookbook and one on the blog, but the beauty of these are: the possibilities are endless. You can fill them with whatever your heart desires, which means, it’s hard to get sick of them. They’re great for meal prepping breakfast for the week or to have on hand for a high protein snack.
I’ve been working out with a trainer that wanted me to start tracking macros. Since I’m more plant-based than anything else, it was REALLY HARD for me to hit the recommended grams of protein. Luckily, I love to cook and I’m very analytical. I started using the My Fitness Pal app to put together high protein recipes and these definitely help me hit my daily macros!
