Recipe Week!

I have a bunch of recipes that I've been meaning to share with you guys, so this week, there might be a few extra posts. Get excited! 

Anyone who knows me will account to the fact that I have a new found obsession with cooking. I'm often found looking through one of my cookbooks, planning meals for the weeks ahead (am I right, roommates?).

For today's recipe, I've got a breakfast one for you. This is what we had for St. Patrick's day breakfast (the start of an amazing food day, but more info to come on that later).

Recipe #1: Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups


12 turkey bacon strips
1.5 cups eggs substitute
6 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 2 minutes on each side or until partially set but not crisp.

2. Coat six muffin cups with cooking spray; wrap two bacon strips around the inside of each cup. Fill each with 1/4 cup egg substitute; top with cheese. 

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Sprinkle each cup with parsley.

They were delicious, and easy. Next time you're cooking breakfast, these breakfast cups are sure to impress. 

And for the Fit Club update? Well I'll leave it at this:

Gym: 7/7 days. Success. 

Eating: Work Potluck on Monday, Coworker's birthday on Tuesday, Pie Day on Wednesday, Community Group Potluck on Thursday and St. Patrick's Day feast on Saturday. I'll let you take a wild guess. 

Better luck this week?

those look really yummy!! I think you could really change this up. Instead of bacon, you could go with diced peppers or onions. Will have to try this one.
