I <3 Eggs: 13 Recipes to Blow Your Mind

Eggs

 

Wow, just wow. I am a breakfast whore. There, I said it. I love breakfast. I have been eating it since…(a lady never tells her age), ever single day. For me, it’s not possible to skip. It kick starts my day, helps me avoid office pastries, and late night snacking too! So I am sharing this amazing blog post with y’all to help you share in my love for anything breakfast. (We’ll start with breakfast…I promise to provide pancake recipes too)

And while I love my daily Shakeology because I am always running out the door, I still buy eggs and egg whites! Thank God! Because eggs are so good for you. One large egg has just 77 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 6 grams of protein. The yolks contain important B-vitamins, omega-3s, and all 9 essential amino acids. Egg whites are an excellent source of lean protein. Eating only the whites removes all of the fat and cholesterol, however, you miss out on all of the other nutritional benefits. So, even if you’re limiting fat in your diet, make sure you eat the whole egg once in a while.

Happy 4th! Freedom is precious, you have the freedom to choose to be happier, healthier, give back, be more grateful, and change! Count your blessings when you’re feeling like others have it better because of their looks or lifestyle, they may just be missing the big picture, and you are richer for choosing to love! Be thankful for the freedom to change and for all the people who have helped us get to where we are today.

Alright guys, who’s ready for 30 days of motivation, accountability, and fun?! For those of you joining me, here’s how it works:

You will spend 30 days working towards each of the daily 100 parts at your own pace! If you want to try any of these things on your own for the first time, add to you routine, or maintain a regimen while you’re on the go, this is the challenge for you! Record your daily totals in a journal or on your phone, and keep track of them from day 1-30. Take photos of yourself on day one and on day 30!
By day 30, I guarantee you will see HUGE changes!

1. If you already have cardio planned in your day-your mile counts into the equation,
– Walk a mile, or Run a mile, (If you have injuries, please consult your doctor to make sure the bike or elliptical is a safe alternative)
2. Pilates 100
3. 100 second plank-work up to this!
4. 100 pushups-spread them out in sets throughout the day, you can do these on your knees or on your hands and feet-
(ADD VARIETY, mix it up with tricep pushups too! You will also work up to these. When you start getting stronger you will be able to do all of your sets in one or two workouts.
