Am I the only one who feels like it is a race against the clock in the mornings? I try to fit so many things into my mornings before I have to jet off to work - drink coffee, workout, make a lunch, pack work clothes, eat breakfast, bike to work, shower, and run upstairs to my desk. I have found that the more things I can eliminate from this list or move to a different time period, the better. Breakfast is one of those things. I’ve been making breakfast, packing it in my bag along with some lunch (also moved that time out of my mornings), all the night before work and I feel like I’ve just obtained world peace (it kinda is world peace in my house because I’m not yelling at Stephen to hurry up in the shower anymore).

These egg bites are the perfect on-the-go breakfast that are sure to fill you up after a packed morning. They also make prime protein-filled snack to pack in your lunch bag! They are hand held little pieces of heaven that have solved many of my morning problems (and improved my marriage ;) )!
