A Handy Breakfast

Getting a good breakfast is helpful in sticking to your healthy eating goals–hunger does our decision-making no favors. Making food from scratch first thing in the morning when you’re trying to get everyone out the door isn’t always an easy prospect. The idea of egg white mini quiches from Thrifters Anonymous is fantastic–let your kids pick their favorite veggies, prep the quiches whenever you have time, and toss a couple in the microwave to hand to whoever’s walking out the door without a meal in their stomach. If you want a tried and tested flavor combination and a rated recipe, use the ingredients from our Broccoli Frittata recipe with the mini-quiche method.
