Ham & Cheese Egg Bites!

I have been very into egg bites lately thanks to Starbucks of course…so I decided that it will be easier and cheaper to make them at home rather then constantly buying them at Starbucks everyday. So this was my 2nd week of meal prepping the egg bites and decided to share the recipe with you. This is the recipe for what I made this week; last weeks was the same thing except I had added bell peppers to them also and husband requested no bell peppers this time around.

What you need:

  • 4 cup mixing cup or larger (easier to pour
  • 8 eggs
  • Ham of your choice
  • cheese of your choice
  • Salt & pepper
  • Non stick spray
  • 12 count cupcake pan
  1. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Spray your pan using your non stick spray.
  3. Crack your eggs into the mixing bowl and whisk it all together along with your salt and pepper.
  4. Cut up your ham, cheese and other ingredients you wish to use and start layering them in the pan.
  5. Pour your whisked eggs into each cupcake tins about half way. You can add a little more until its filled to the top but I prefer a little less so I do not fill it all the way.
  6. Take a fork and lightly stir each of the cupcake tins to mix it all together.
  7. Put in oven and cook for 20 to 25 minutes depending on how cooked you like your eggs!
  8. Once cooked, take out of the oven and let it sit for a few mins.
  9. Run a knife around the egg of the egg bites to remove them.

I usually make this Sunday night and let them cool down completely before I put them in bags and put them in the fridge to enjoy throughout the week.

You can even freeze these by wrapping them individually and putting them into a ziploc bag and freezing them for up to three months. you can thaw them and reheat for 30 seconds or you can simply reheat them for a minute if frozen.

Let me know if you make them 🙂

10 week challenge starts Today!

Good morning!

Even though I didn’t finish my challenge last time, I actually really enjoyed it and felt like it helped me in a lot of ways of making sure I read everyday and worked out as well; therefore I decided to do another one! This time I will be doing a 10 week challenge rather than a 6 week challenge!

My 10 week challenge starts today and ends on November 25th! This is what I’ll have to do everyday (minus the weekly photo) in order to complete my challenge:

• Workout everyday for at least 30 minutes.

• Drink a gallon or more of water.

• Read for 15 minutes or more daily.

• Write a blog post everyday!

• Intermittent fast. Minimum of 12 hours but aim for 16!

• Progress photo once a week along with measuring myself once a week.

I’m so excited, it has been about 3 weeks since I worked out but I’m ready to get back into it! I also want to eventually incorporate keto into my diet slowly!

Anyone want to do the challenge with me?

July challenge update…

Happy August! Can you believe it’s already August? Where has the time gone seriously? The months are just flying on by in a blink of an eye! Yesterday was my birthday and my first goal was to reach 275 by my birthday but then changed my goal to 265 to 270. I sadly didn’t reach my second goal but I did reach my first one, I weighed myself yesterday morning and was 274.4. Woohoo! At least I was lower then I wanted my first goal to be!

As for my challenge I put myself on, I’m actually doing really good. I have been sticking to it all since I started it almost 2 weeks ago! I’ve been working out every single day even the days I’m extremely tired and or lazy; I try to just do something for 30 minutes rather then just laying my ass in bed!

The first week I had so much energy and this week I have just been so tired and lazy but I force myself to go! I feel like if I skip a day, I’ll just give up on my challenge slowly! For example like today, I went to Disneyland with the little girl I nanny for and we all know Disneyland is exhausting but I forced myself to go to the gym afterwards at 9:30pm (straight from work to the gym) and worked out for 45 minutes! I’m beyond exhausted right now and it’s already 11:30 pm but I wanted to write this down since it is the 1st of the month!

I’m really hoping I can fully stick to this challenge of working out everyday, reading everyday, fasting and drinking a lot more water daily the rest of the month like I challenged myself to do. I also am really hoping that I’ll be 265 or less by the end of August…fingers crossed!
