Is That an Egg in Your Coffee Mug? : 3 Easy Egg Recipes
With these egg recipes, you’ll never skip breakfast again. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 56% of Americans admitted to not eating breakfast every day. This may not come as a surprise, as most mornings are rushed and breakfast is typically the first item we sacrifice for the sake of time. It’s understandable, but not necessarily a good habit to pick up. If only there were ways to make a hearty breakfast on the go? Oh wait, there is.
With these quick and easy egg creations there’s no excuse to leave home without having breakfast. The best part: no stove top or cooking pans necessary. All you need is a coffee mug and a microwave. I scoured the American Egg Board’s website for their recommendations, and came across these fantastic ideas for nuking your eggs.

So why eggs? Well, in addition to being delicious they also happen to be high in nutrients and protein. For instance, did you know that consuming high-quality protein like eggs may help active adults build muscle strength and help prevent muscle loss in the future?
Eggs also allow for a ton of variety when cooking. You can add eggs to almost anything and call it an omelet. The American Egg Board recipes are delicious, but experiment with your own ingredients when making your coffee mug creation. Using ingredients you have at home will save you time and money.
So next time you’re ready to skip breakfast and run out the door in the morning, consider taking a microwavable egg creation with you. You’re lunch cravings will be grateful for the morning meal.
