Breakfast Egg Muffins [Recipe]

While I may not be where I see myself in my head, I have been cross-fitting for 11 years and will do it for the rest of my life. Life throws you ebbs and flows, just keep swimming! And god dammit, I will get back into my shorts, just give me time…Keep moving, make healthy choices and turn to exercise and diet to change your life. The community of CF is so awesome, we will meet you where you are and cheer you on as you do the best you can TODAY, tomorrow and the rest of your life.

On Saturday, I watched a 50 year old woman with SEVERE MS row a 2K keeping a 2:38 pace the whole time. I watched her and cried. If someone with those challenges can show up and do the work, so can I. So can you. NO EXCUSES.

And I leave you with this recipe! Having healthy snacks on hand that are high in protein is always a battle. These egg muffins are the perfect quick and easy solution. Enjoy!
