Meatless Monday: Spinach, Mushroom + Red Pepper Omelet Muffins


I love breakfast.  I have and always will be a breakfast person. Problem is, lately, I just don’t have time for the type of breakfast that I prefer to enjoy.  

Growing up it wouldn’t be unusual for my mom to make a full-on weekend breakfast during the week.  It ranged from strawberry waffles to eggs, toast and bacon.  She always stressed the importance of breakfast and it is something that became a habit and always stuck with me.  

As an adult, I found that when it comes to breakfast, eggs are my jam and if time allows, an omelet is my egg dish of choice.  Not only are they pretty easy to whip up but eggs are also the perfect way to refuel after a long run or a workout.  

Unfortunately, easy doesn’t always mean fast and with the limited time I’ve had lately, I needed to speed up the whole omelet process so I could enjoy my eggs on the go.  

Enter, Omelet Muffins.

By whipping these up ahead of time, I am able to take them with me when I am rushing out the door meaning that I can still refuel and keep the hanger at bay without having to resort to something packaged and processed.

While you can really make these with any veggie you please, I went for spinach, mushrooms and roasted red peppers because they are easy to incorporate and that’s what I was craving! I also might have a slight obsession with roasted red peppers.
