Never miss another breakfast again. These are healthy, they come together in about thirty minutes, and they are only 240 calories for the pair! Win, win, win. Once you try them once you will crave these Bacon Egg Muffins!
Many of you will know or have at least heard of the Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites. These things took the breakfast world by storm when they were introduced. I have only had these a few times and I really really enjoyed them. What didn’t I enjoy? Paying almost $6 for TWO. We are not people who eat out often, and this is the main reason. If you don’t know, Eddie and I work together. This means we travel together to work, meaning if we stop to grab breakfast on the way in, and get these its almost $20 for breakfast! Thank god he doesn’t drink coffee, or it would for sure be over $20. That is not ok with me. Especially when I know I can make the same thing at home for a fraction of the price, and we would have breakfast for at least 3 or 4 days.
Can we also talk about how these Bacon Egg Muffins are only 240 calories. For TWO, and they contain bacon and cheese. It’s ok, you can get up and do a little happy dance with me! 👏
You can also toss them into a toasted bagel or English muffin for a super easy breakfast sandwich!
meal prep and make ahead
These will turn into a meal prep maven. If you don’t regularly meal prep I highly, highly recommend that you try it. It has changed my life. I know how ridiculous that sounds but I was once the person rolling my eyes at the “meal preppers”. It saves so much money and time, which are both things that are hard to come by in this modern world. And it just allows you to clear your brain and not constantly have to be thinking about what to make for the next meal.
One of the greatest benefits of meal prepping is that it helps keep you on track with healthy meals ready and at your fingertips. I have been meal prepping/planning all of our meals for over 4 years now, and I noticed the biggest impact on our bank account. Before I started meal prepping if we didn’t have leftovers in the fridge, I guarantee you we were rolling up to that drive thru window at noon, and sometimes up to three times per day. 😬
Obviously I am extremely passionate about this topic, so let me know in the comments below if you want to see a step-by-step post of how I meal prep/plan!
