Food Friday: Egg Muffins and Macros!

FOOD FRIDAY!

Hi guys, coach Katie here sharing our next edition of Food Friday!

Today I’m sharing a healthy breakfast recipe to help you if you’re someone who has rushed mornings or needs to eat on the go. I’ve also included the MACROS. What exactly are macros you ask? Macro-nutrients make up all the foods that we eat – protein, carbohydrates, and fats. There is a huge benefit to becoming aware of the amount of each macro you eat, and the amount of how much your body needs to be running optimally. You can fuel properly for performance and change your body composition by learning to eat certain quantities of macro-nutrients based off your personal factors (body weight, how lean you are, your activity level etc.).

This quick breakfast makes 12 egg muffins to get you through a few days of no cook mornings. These are a huge time saver in our house and we mix up the flavors weekly depending on what we have on hand – different veggies, sweet potatoes, bacon etc. Try these out and let me know what you think!

If you’re interested in learning how much food you need to train, recover, and live your best and most energized life- shoot me an email for a free intro session to sit down and chat about one-on-one coaching! katiekiely44@gmail.com
