    Greek Breakfast Egg Skillet

    Do you ever find yourself stuck in a healthy breakfast rut or find yourself eating the same thing again and again because it’s easy? Trust me, I’m right there with you. Most mornings I’m busy trying to decipher which fruit my 4 year likes that day and which color bowl is his favorite so I know all about hectic, busy morning routines. 

    Sauteed Veggie Skillet with Eggs

    One weekend I recently decided to skip my usual morning smoothie and experimented with a savory breakfast which resulted in this Greek Egg Skillet with Sautéed Veggies and Feta.

    My goal was simple: come up with a recipe that took the same amount of time as prepping a smoothie but was savory, high protein and low carb. I’m thrilled to share that mission: accomplished.
