Healthy Recipe: Simple Egg White & Veggie Muffins

As I mentioned in my post this morning, I am ready to take control of my nutrition again. I’m starting by going nut with food prep. I wanted lots of healthy options so that I couldn’t get bored, but also had lots of yumminess.

I’ve been doing smoothies for the last couple of months, but I know I’m taking in way too many calories with those, and it’s throwing my day off. So I decided to make something that would be filling & healthy that required very little effort.
