Planning out your meals is key to saving money, avoiding food wastage and achieveing your goals!
So why not plan out even just your breakfast this week and try out this easy option. These cheat egg muffins are a delicious savoury alternative to the usual eggs or savoury oats, so I hope you like them just as much as me. Get creative with this recipe and sub the add ins for your favourite things like diced tofu, feta, roast butternut squash (recommend), courgette etc. If you’re wondering what nutritional yeast is, well it’s amazing, I add it to tones of my veggie dishes to add a cheesy flavour with added benefits and no huge calorie boost. I get mine in health store it’s a cheap product but you could sub for a vegan Parmesan.
