Hi friend! I hope you’ve been having a splendid week! I’m up at my friend’s cottage on Lake Huron for the next few days and so I’ll make this post short and sweet, just like me!
Sometimes you just want to be able to grab and go your breakfast, but when you’ve switched to a whole foods lifestyle and especially if you’re avoiding grains, it can be hard to find things to eat when you just don’t have the time to whip something up. I’ve already shared my recipe for Protein Packed Pumpkin Pie Pancakes, which can be a great option, but today’s dish is more on the savoury side. They freeze and reheat well and are super delicious and easy to make.
Eggs are one of my favourite foods and they’re chock full of B vitamins, choline for healthy brain function, and they’re a fabulous source of protein.
Coconut milk contains healthy medium chain fats to help boost our immune systems and to provide energy for our livers.
Spinach is chock full of chlorophyll which is fab for detoxification and contains tons of vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy and happy body. These egg cups are great because they’re totally customizable and you can throw in any veggie you want.
Peppers for vitamin C, tomatoes for lycopene, or garlic for sulfur compounds that support your liver. Go crazy and get creative in the kitchen!

Do you mean canned coconut milk vs. carton?
Yes I do! 😀
