Start Your Morning Right With Some Protein
By San Tan Valley Fit Body Boot Camp
Need a shot of protein to get you through the morning?
Then try these egg white bites! They’re healthier than regular eggs yet still pack the same amount of protein.
But these aren’t just boring old egg cups. You can add in cottage cheese, coconut flour, spinach, bell peppers, and scallions to turn these cups into a more filling and delicious breakfast!
Hungry? Get your apron on, because it’s time to cook!
