Spinach Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

I love making quiche on Sunday morning! It is quick and easy and packed with protein to keep you fueled for your day. Another reason I love making this on Sunday’s is you can have the leftovers for breakfast or lunch the rest of the week.

Peanut Butter Toast with Egg

I’m not a traditional breakfast food eater. I come up with this combo a while back and had to post it again, it’s so good! Crunchy Peanut Butter Toast with an Egg on Top = Yummmmm

PB Toast with Egg

Ingredients
1 piece of whole wheat toast
2 tbsp crunchy nut butter
1 egg, cooked medium with dill and red pepper
1 tbsp agave
hot sauce

Directions
1. Warm sautee pan to medium, spray with cooking spray, crack egg, season and cover with lid. This will help the egg to steam it’s self. Keep an eye on it and turn the heat down if needed. Should take about 5 minutes depending on how runny you like the yoke.
2. Meanwhile, toast bread and spread with nut butter.
3. Top toast with egg, agave and hot sauce if desired.
4. Enjoy!

I really like the sweet and spicy combo here and I cook my egg so the yoke is almost hard, I don’t like runny yokes. Play around with it and make my recipe for this your own!

Breakfast Frittata Muffins

Breakfast can be overlooked far to often in our busy schedules. These little breakfast frittata’s are easy to make ahead of time and store in the frig when you’re on the go. This week I made a batch of 12 and have been eating off them all week. I pop a couple in the microwave to heat them up and top with greek yogurt and hot sauce or just eat them plain. The great thing about these little guys is you can put anything in them, cheese, peppers, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, any veggie, vegan sausage,  a whole vegan meatball. Use your imagination and get creative. You could make them for a month and always come up with a new recipe.
