Recipes: Taco Egg Muffins

It’s taco time: egg edition.

You might not think to put tacos and eggs together, but they actually can make quite the healthy combo.

Eggs are a super source of protein. There’s a reason why Rocky Balboa would drink a glass of egg yolks before training (we don’t recommend doing this, though)…

Now check this out. Normally, you’d splatter a little ketchup or hot sauce on your eggs to give them some added taste. See, we know that you can do better than that…

This recipe includes most of the components of your average taco without the carb-heavy tortilla included. What could be better than that?

Plus, you can make these muffins into little cups, which are easy to bring with you wherever you go!

So what are you waiting for? Scroll down and see how you can make these heavenly taco treats for yourself!

How to Portion Control Like a Pro

There’s crumbs, popcorn, and cereal in the crevices of Jan’s couch…

Jan loves two things: snacking and television. That’s a scary combination right there…

On a typical Friday night, Jan will turn on Netflix to watch one of her favorite movies. Of course, she’ll munch on a bag of popcorn and a bag of chips.

You probably could guess what’s next…

She gets so invested in the movie that she doesn’t even realize that she’s on her third bag of chips and her third bag of popcorn!

We’d all agree that Jan needs to eat more nutritious snacks. Now stocking your cupboard with healthy snacks 24/7? That’s not easy.
