Need something really fast to get you energized for a busy day ahead? Most of us have those days that we need protein for energy but do not have the time to make an elaborate breakfast during the week. Try this “Grab and Go” breakfast that you can also prepare the day before. It’s called Muffin Frittatas and will please most of the fussiest eaters. It’s also very versatile in that you can change the ingredients to your liking or to provide variety. Easy to prepare, delicious, and minimal calories (not to forget that), how great is that?
