Egg muffins

I had a bunch of left over veggies in my fridge. None were enough for a meal, so I decided to make egg muffins with them!  Sometimes I feel I get stuck in a breakfast rut. I tend to stick to the same foods for a few months and then eventually become sick of them. My go-to’s have been kashi cereal and english muffins with peanut butter.  When I’m lucky, my husband will wake up early and make me an egg sandwich….awww what a guy! Recently, I’ve started eating more oatmeal and now I’ll have to make these egg muffins again and again! What I love about them is: 1. TASTED GREAT!! 2. Are so easy to prepare in advance and reheat in the morning 3. They make a great snack 4. You can add any type of vegetable you have in the fridge! This recipe was inspired by the egg muffin recipe from skinneytaste found here

I used zucchini, cherry tomatoes, scallions, and spinach, and I got to use my spiralizer for the first time!!
