Eat some protein when you’re done working out is what I’ve heard all my life. Ask any doctor, trainer, dietitian, health nut, or reference a fairly credible health website and you’re bound to find the same information. Packing in some protein after my morning bike ride can be tough on my tight morning schedule and hard boiled eggs with some mustard get a little bland after a while.
Lately I’ve been loving these egg muffins. When I get back from my ride, I grab a couple I pre-made on Sunday afternoon, pop em in the microwave and devour them before I start stretching and foam rolling. I’ve found numerous ways to make them, but this is how I like to make them.
Here’s what you need:
- Muffin baking sheet
- 6 eggs
- Couple handfuls of chopped veggies, I like:
- tomatoes (sundried if you want)
- Shredded cheese
- Salt (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
- Non-stick spray
- Mixing bowl
- Fork or whisk
This is how easy they are to make:
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray the muffin cups with the non-stick spray
- Mix your veggies together and evenly distribute them into the muffin cups. Sprinkle some cheese on top. Only fill the cups to 1/2 or 3/4 full, so there’s some room for the eggs.
- Whisk the 6 in the mixing bowl and add however much salt and pepper that you’d like. Pour the eggs over the veggies and cheese that are already in the muffin cups.
- Bake 20-25 minutes on the middle rack. Make sure the egg’s thoroughly cooked.
- Serve plain, with ketchup, salsa, Siracha, or whatever else you like.
- If you’re meal prepping and plan to eat them later in the week, let cool and store in the refrigerator. When you go to eat them, reheat in the microwave on high, start out warming for 30 seconds and go from there.
As I’ve already said, I like to prepare egg muffin on Sunday afternoons/evenings, after my weekly trip to Whole Foods Market, and eat them after my morning rides. I’ve found they kick my hunger and provide the protein I need after a ride. Oh and did I mention they taste great?
Try making some egg muffins yourself, just might make your hectic morning a little less hectic.
I like to make mine vegetarian style, but you can easily mix in some cooked sausage, bacon, or some other meat.
