Meal Prep Series - Egg Bake

I had a hard time writing this one up because I haven't eaten eggs since Christmas (I know, insane eh?), but this one was a special request! The Egg Bake is a great breakfast on-the-go packed with protein and micronutrients (depending on what you add).

Some of you are probably still questioning why I haven't eaten eggs since December ... apparently my body and eggs just don't mix for the time being. Last fall, I got a food sensitivity test taken and I was almost flying off the charts when it came to eggs, so they've had to take a back seat for the better part of this year.

But, that doesn't mean its not a great recipe, so here you go!

NOTE: Its important to listen to your body when eating certain foods. If you are constantly bloated, experience cramping in your stomach or frequent trips to the bathroom - maybe thats something worth looking into? Just because something is healthy, does not mean it is for every individual!
