Your Perfect Early Morning Bootcamp Snack

AkeIw0W - Imgur

We understand that getting your early morning workout in before heading off to work can make for a rushed morning.

And an even more rushed breakfast.

But after taking a look at today’s simple (3-ingredient!) recipe, you’ll have no more excuses for skimping on breakfast (hey, who doesn’t love a good peanut butter toast combo…but let’s switch it up)

Eggs are an ideal breakfast, nutritionally. They are an excellent source of protein (about 6 grams per egg) and are rich in vitamin and minerals. But on days that we don’t have an extra couple minutes to spare, having these pre-made bite size fritattas in the fridge can allow us to cook our eggs…and eat ’em too!

These mini fritattas are a perfect bite to grab as you head out to BootcampSF as a pre workout snack. Or pair a couple of them with your favorite green smoothie or avocado toast and you have yourself a 5 minute, nutritious meal. They also are great to add to lunch boxes (kids and adults, alike).

In this recipe, we use chard. Although, you could use any leafy greens (kale, spinach, etc.) you have on hand. We consider it an achievement any time you can add in some leafy greens before 9am so don’t skip the greens. However, do feel free to add in other nutritious and yummy ingredients such as, other vegetables, potatoes or sausage.

Ingredients
8 organic eggs
1 bunch rainbow chard or kale (or about 3 cups of your favorite greens)
2 cloves garlic
1 tbs high heat oil (like coconut oil or butter)
Sea salt and pepper
Muffin tin
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350
Grease inside of muffin tin well
Wash and de stem chard or kale
Chop stems and greens
Mince garlic
Heat pan with oil or butter and sauté stems and garlic; then add greens
Saute on medium heat until as wilted and reduced as possible
Meanwhile whisk eggs, salt and pepper until about 1/3 increase in volume
When greens are done, add a scoop to each muffin tin well
Pour eggs mixture into each well until about 1/3 filled
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through
Let cool and store in airtight container in fridge for up to 5 days
