You don’t need to be a kid to enjoy this keto green eggs and ham muffins recipe. Make them on Sunday to get a head start on a busy week.
Eating More Greens
Fact: Most people simply do not eat enough vegetables. Many people don’t eat veggies before lunch, and it’s difficult to consume the recommended amount in just two meals.
That’s one of the reasons I created this recipe.
Most people don’t seem to mind if a few vegetables sneak into their eggs. Thanks to dishes like omelets, a few veggies in your eggs are usually a welcome addition.
In fact, the broccoli in this recipe gives what otherwise might be bland egg muffins some life and color.
What Kind of Eggs Are Healthiest
If you enjoy eggs, you’ll probably find yourself eating a lot of them on keto. And indeed, this particular recipe calls for a whopping 10 eggs.
When you buy that many eggs, you want to make sure you’re getting what’s best for you and your family.
But all those labels on egg cartons aren’t particularly helpful. There’s organic, cage-free, free-range, and pastured to name a few.
Go with eggs from pastured chickens if possible. Chickens that eat a natural diet produce eggs that are rich in beta-carotene, which helps you to maintain a healthy weight and protects your skin against sun damage.
You’ll also score twice the omega-3 in pastured eggs. Omega-3 is your ally in fighting inflammation throughout the body.
Finally, pasture eggs boast three times as much vitamin E, which is a vital antioxidant. You can learn more about the benefits of pastured eggs in this article.
