Low FODMAP Egg Muffins
These low-FODMAP egg muffins are an EGG-cellent dish to prepare early and have handy on the busy mornings! Eggs are a great source of protein providing you with energy to get through the first couple of hours before lunch and can reduce the need to buy something quick, and often less healthy at the ample fast-food restaurants near-by. In addition, these muffins are filled with low-FODMAP veggies and cheese to support a balanced breakfast to start off the day!
What I love to do is make a batch of these low-FODMAP egg muffins on the weekend when I know I am less busy, and then I have 6 egg muffins ready for the busier weekdays. In fact, if you wanted to make more than a weeks worth you could as these egg muffins freeze well! Freezing these egg muffins make a great grab n’ go breakfast!
We like to pair these with 2 slices of low FODMAP bread like traditionally made sourdough or gluten free bread (with no high FODMAP ingredients).
Simply remove an egg muffin from the freezer and reheat in the microwave for 1 minute. If you have access to a microwave at work, you could also choose to grab one on the way out the door, and reheat it at work when you are able to sit down and enjoy.
By taking advantage of the slower times in your week to prepare breakfast you can increase your likelihood of eating breakfast despite of having a busy morning and support healthy eating choices.
