For this month’s recipe, I thought I should pick something quick and easy for the families with kids going back to school, so I asked Tara to pick one. Tara has a very busy household, and she picked a breakfast recipe for busy school/workday mornings.
After being in easy summer mode, September is starting off a little disorganized for me. Not planning my grocery list to include enough food for my kids’ lunches and forgetting to eat breakfast before I leave in the morning. The new morning chaos seems to be throwing my schedule out of whack. Anything that makes my life more efficient is a welcome addition. Especially when it comes to cooking. There is no time in the morning for cooking, but I like my family to eat healthy, so I found this recipe for Spinach and Feta Egg Cups. They look delicious and can be made ahead of time so all you need to do in the morning is heat them up. For a 1 g serving you get 8 g of protein and some vitamin A and Iron. That packs quite a nutritious punch for a such a small package. Right from the freezer 30-60 seconds in microwave or 5-7 minutes in the oven. Now everybody has time to eat.
I can’t wait to try it and would love to hear what you think. Email me your thoughts if you try them or if you have your own recipe to share.
