Recipe – Omelet Muffins

IMG_1945

I have a confession to make…I don’t always eat breakfast.  I know, I know, eating breakfast every day is something I always stress to my patients and clients, but when it comes to living what I preach, I often fall short on the breakfast front.  I could sit here and come up with a million excuses;  I don’t always have time, I don’t really like typical breakfast foods (like cereal), etc., etc.  No more excuses, with all of you as my witnesses, from this day forward, I will be a breakfast eater!

I came across these little omelet muffins on Pinterest and thought, what a perfect thing to prepare for my first week of “breakfast every day”.  You can easily prepare these savory muffins in advance and just heat one up each morning. I hope you enjoy!
