Preparation

It's a fact that planning meals in advance leads to healthier eating habits and less food waste. This dish is part of a healthy, 3-meal plan from lifestyle blogger Blair Flynn who shares creative recipes like this and healthly living tips at balancewithb.com.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Generously grease a muffin tin with coconut oil or spray. This is important or the eggs will stick to the pan!!

In a large mixing bowl, crack all of the eggs into the bowl and mix (if you want to do a mixture of eggs and egg whites, that will work)

Add your seasonings to the egg mixture and mix until well combined. NOTE: If you want all your egg muffin cups to have the same vegetables, add them to the egg mixture before pouring into the mufin tin. If, you prefer to have different vegetables in each muffin cup,  pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin tin then add the vegetables of your choice into each tin.

Pour the egg mixture into the muffin tin filling each cup 3/4 of the way. If you decided to add the vegetables later, add them now.

Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Let the egg muffin cups cool completely before removing from the pan.

Place the egg muffin cups in an airtight container and refrigerte for up to 5 days. You can eat them cold, but if you want to heat them up, place them back in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes or at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or so.
