Healthy Maple Breakfast Sausage & Egg Muffins

image13.jpg

Happy Valentines Day! This morning I stirred up lots of love in the kitchen and made two of my favorite breakfast foods! The Applegate brand carries a maple and sage breakfast sausage that I LOVE but they are $5 for only 3-4 servings which are super tiny...so I set off to make my own!

You'll need:

1lb ground turkey 1 1/2 tsp Thyme 1 1/2 tsp Sage 2 tbsp Maple syrup 2 tbsp Coconut sugar Salt to taste

How: 1. Heat a pan to medium 2. Throw ALL of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together thoroughly 3. Form small patties and cook on each side for about 3-4 min or until cooked through

Egg Muffins

What you'll need: (This is for one serving)

4 egg whites 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning 3 tbsp shredded cheese

How: 1.preheat oven to 400 2.Mix together ingredients and pour in muffin tin--bake at 400 for 10-15 min.

Before you think I'm all about that egg white life--stop! IM A YOLK LOVER to my core. You know how they say eggs are healthy? They are, and all of the vitamins and nutrients come from the yolk. Healthy fat? The yolk is FULL of it! So by all means you can use four WHOLE eggs (probably 3 will do)! I chose to not have the yolks this morning because I know I'll be cooking the rest of the day and will be making some yummy treats, and since it's a special occasion I'd rather get my fats from those sources (AKA: Cookie Butter) than yolks..today! See, we don't gain weight from eating fats, carbs or any macronutrient. We gain weight from eating too much of any macro. So occasionally I'll opt to play around with my fats and avoid some during breakfast or dinner to enjoy more of another fat latter. Does that make sense? I don't want to confuse you guys and I'd be happy to talk about this more with you!

Also, feel free to get creative with the egg muffins. I like to add onions, broccoli, bacon, blue cheese..literally any meat or veggie would be good in there!

Have a beautiful day,
