I’m all about simplicity in the mornings! I don’t have time to whip up a huge nutritious breakfast during the week for the family. Sunday’s are usually our meal prep day and with our lunches and dinners, I’m now starting to incorporate easy make ahead meals for breakfast! One of which are Egg Muffins!

I usually experiment and bake up a batch of muffins on Sunday's. They’re a great and quick way to get something in my family's stomachs in the morning on our way to work and school.
