HGG Reset

Before we jump into these recipes, I wanted to mention Healthy Glow Co. because guess what? We just released a brand new meal plan called HGG Reset. I have a dedicated post going up tomorrow, but couldn’t resist sharing RIGHT NOW. The HGG Reset is exactly how Monique and I eat when we want to feel our best. It’s a four-week focus on nourishing your body with foods that work in your favor while stripping back what weighs you down. There aren’t any “yes/no” lists, but we’ve intentionally designed this program to help you establish a new, sustainable eating pattern with healthy, satisfying food that tastes as good as it makes you feel! PLUS, we have included a whole meal-prep guide of what to make and when to make it to make healthy eating even easier.

I AM SO PUMPEDDDDD! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where I’ll give you a look inside the program. For now, learn more HERE.

Instructions

Mediterranean Egg Cups

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a 12-cup, nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Next, finely dice sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, basil, and yellow onion. Then spread out among the 12 cups. Add about 1 teaspoon of feta cheese crumbles to each cup.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Then, pour egg mixture evenly on top of veggies in order to fill each cup around 3/4 of the way full. Use a fork or knife to mix in order to make sure the veggies are evenly distributed within the egg.
  4. Season the top of each egg cup with salt and pepper, to taste, and then bake at 350ºF for around 18-22 minutes.

Turkey Fajita Egg Cups

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and spray a 12-cup, nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil to a nonstick skillet and heat over medium/high heat. Add ground turkey and spices and saute until turkey is fully cooked.
  3. Transfer browned meat into muffin cups. Then prep vegetables by finely dicing green pepper, red pepper, and onion. Evenly spread out among muffin cups.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Then, pour egg mixture evenly on top of veggies in order to fill each cup around 3/4 of the way full. Use a fork or knife to mix in order to make sure the veggies are evenly distributed within the egg.
  5. Season the top of each egg cup with salt and pepper, to taste, and then sprinkle on cheese.
  6. Bake at 350ºF for around 18-22 minutes.

Bacon Baked Eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF and spray a 12-cup, nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Next, use one piece of bacon per muffin to create a basket of sorts for the egg. Place the bacon on the inside of each muffin so that it covers the sides completely. Then, use a pair scissors to cut the remaining bacon. Use this excess piece of bacon for the bottom of your basket. Repeat with all pieces of bacon.
  3. Place bacon in the oven at 400ºF for around 7 minutes. Remove before they start to get crispy.
  4. Crack 1 egg inside of each bacon basket. Make sure that you use large eggs as anything bigger will be too much egg to hold in the muffins.
  5. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes depending on how runny you like your eggs.
  6. Finally, season with pepper and enjoy!

Place into a snall bowl and season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Then, spread evenly among the 12 cups.
  3. Chop 12 fully-cooked breakfast sausage links and then add to the top of shredded potatoes.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Then, pour egg mixture evenly on top of veggies in order to fill each cup around 3/4 of the way full. Use a fork or knife to mix in order to make sure the veggies are evenly distributed within the egg.
