Healthy Kitchen: Portable Egg Cups

Growing up, I always thought eggs were reserved for special occasions only—whether at a restaurant with my grandparents or at baptism brunches. 

Add to this the fact that eggs had, at one time, come under considerable fire for their high cholesterol content (we’ll address that in a moment). It was enough to make me reserve eggs for an occasional breakfast food only. However, with so many health benefits associated with the consumption of eggs, we should be eating them frequently.

Espresso Chip Energy Balls 

I have several things in my life I refer to as my “reliables.” This recipe is one of those….

Sure, I always seem to have the ingredients on hand. However, even if I “screw up” the mixture or measure wrong, it always turns out deliciously well. Maybe that’s why it’s my go-to energy ball recipe. I switch the ingredients up fairly often depending on my mood or the season, but this is without a doubt my favorite. 

Why is it so “knock your socks off” good? Obvious reason first: coffee. Obvious reason number two: dark chocolate.

Cranberry Pistachio Bread 

I’m sure you’ve seen the big bags of cranberries lining grocery store shelves around this time of year.

You know the ones—the lovely, plump berries you may have strung for holiday garland. 

Cranberries are so much more than ornamental, however. I recommend adding them to breads, muffins or other baked goods (like the recipe below).

Not only can they impart a burst of bright color and lend a tart sweetness to any recipe, but they offer a hefty dose of high quality nutrients. 

Do I have you convinced yet?
