Egg Muffins

I really love to start my day healthy. It may not always end up that way, but if I could give us all a head start, that works for me. I like to prepare quick, healthy breakfasts ahead of time so I don’t have to do much cooking in the morning. I enjoy taking it easy and drinking my coffee while I plan for all the other big meals. I have been making these egg muffins for a while now. They are filled with veggies and protein and are delicious. They go quick because everyone grabs them throughout the day, so double the recipe if you want to have enough on hand. They can easily be stored in the fridge or freezer. I take a few out of the freezer each day and put them in the fridge. It takes about 20-40 seconds to heat it in the microwave. We like to add a dab of Sriracha on top for a little spice!

***Keep in mind that any of these veggies and cheese can be replaced with what you have in the house or what you prefer!***

Welcome to our Garden

A few years back my husband decided to start a garden. He reached out to a local organic farmer to get his soil and plants. Farmer Jay helped him get it started and now Matt has kept it going. I’m not a gardener due to the fact that I’m kind of scared of snakes and alligators in Florida, but my husband can stay out there for hours. We really don’t have a lot of room, but it’s enough for now. This year we have eggplant, kale, and some herbs. Some years we do better than others. We’ve grown broccoli, peppers, onions, etc.  You should give it a shot and see how it goes. Even if you start with just one vegetable, at least it’s something. It’s a great feeling to be able to go out in the yard and pick part of your dinner. I really feel that is the way it should be. If you are not ready to take on a garden, look at these easy options I found on Amazon.  So fun!

Back to the Roots

I remember as a kid my grandma would take me in her yard in Brooklyn and show me how to care for her garden. She had a fig tree, grape vines, tomatoes and more. When it was in season, she would have buckets of figs. And they were so tasty. My boys have grown to love the garden as well. They go out back and water it and pick what needs to be picked. It’s a good lesson in healthy eating without having to preach to them about what to eat and not eat.

Enjoy the pics and happy gardening!
