Most of us have been perpetually reminded of since childhood, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This meal influences how we perform physically and mentally throughout our day.
The average adult gets 8 hours of sleep per day (or should) and 10 hours for children. In those 8 to 10 hours that the body is resting it is also essentially “fasting”. If breakfast is not consumed in the morning the body does not get the energy needed for the day, affecting concentration levels (particularly in children), mood and weight maintenance. Eating a nutritious and balanced breakfast (protein, veggies, good carbohydrates) maintains blood sugar levels and sets the tone for a day of healthy eating.

5 reasons why breakfast is the most important meal of the day:
- Increase metabolism
- Maintain or lose weight
- Enhance mood
- Enhance immune system
- Stimulate the brain improving memory and concentration
However, on the days when we are scrambling to get out the door, we tend to push it off. What we really need is a breakfast that can rush out the door with us. By taking the time to prepare and eat a healthy breakfast, you eliminate grabbing or picking up the high-sugar breakfast options at your local coffee shop. My simple and nutritious egg muffins prepped in a muffin tin are tasty, healthy, and totally transportable, making your mornings easier and your days energized.
These delicious and healthy breakfast egg muffins can be made in advance and even frozen for more convenience! When you’re busy, portable breakfasts make all the difference. I have created three different recipes below but you can swap out or change up the ingredients as you desire.
