Hey girl, are you trying to clear your skin by cleaning up your diet but you can't find the time to do all that cooking? I see you working hard so I created this super easy recipe for you, to make your life easier.
The struggle is real, I totally get it. But I also know that you want clear and glowing skin & cleaning up your diet is a hugely important part of doing just that! That's why you make your nutrition a priority right!? RIGHT!
Especially for those of you who are busy day in and day out and barely have a minute to think by yourself let alone cook 3 gourmet meals a day. For really's though, if you make this batch and (obvi) eat 2 the day you make them, then store the rest in the fridge (or freezer if you make a bigger batch), you'll have breakfast for 5 days (assuming you'll eat two a day).
You can pop them in the microwave, pop em in the toaster oven, or even put them in your actual oven to heat them up in just a few minutes. Or you can be the ultimate lazy like me and just eat em cold! Ain't nobody got time to heat up food! Sheeeiiitttt.
I just had 2 of these egg muffins for breakfast today with 1/2 a sweet potato and it was essentially perfection. I was fueled, full, and because they tasted so good I felt really satisfied. The thing I have to say is amazing about these muffins is that they're easy to make, super easy to store & eat, the clean up was almost painless ('almost' because all cleaning hurts a little bit), they're delicious, and they even pack a great nutritional punch. It really doesn't get much better than that am I right!?
As someone with acne and or possibly PCOS I can't stress enough how important it is for you to EAT all your meals during the day. Nothing will keep your body in a state of unhappiness & need than depriving your body of food. I'm not saying to run out and pick up McDonalds anytime you're hungry, but you're body is essentially screaming at you to give it more nutrients - so you best comply if you want your skin to have the pretty ass glow like Kim Kardashians bronzer.
In just one of these muffins you've got protein, iron, choline, healthy fats, potassium, magnesium, a ton of vitamins and ingredients like turmeric to help with anti-inflammatory properties! Everyone of these is going to get you that much closer to a fully nourished body and therefore much happier skin. It takes time but every healthy meal you eat HELPS! Yay!

This recipe is Paleo, Keto (low carb), & bikini prep friendly! AKA clear skin friendly!
I'm sorry if you can't eat eggs right now or if you're doing AIP - this one isn't for you. I know I had to go off of eggs for a little while myself because they irritated my skin and it took a little while before I could add them back in. BUT the good news is that I tolerate them very well now so I can benefit from all them nutrients! If that's you then just make sure to pin this post (on pinterest) and save it to make later once you've reintroduced eggs!
On that note, onward ho to the recipe! Enjoy ya'll!
