Because sometimes you need a quick and easy on-the-go option. I developed these healthy eggy muffins with ease and balance in mind. They provide your body with key nutrients it needs in a meal except all in a simple eggy muffin or two. As I share in my 8 Week Program food should be simple and nourishing, without fuss. These fun savoury egg nests feature as one of the delicious snacks in the program.

These sweet potato egg nests provide a source of all three macronutrients your body needs, including protein (eggs), complex carbs (sweet potato), good fats (egg yolk + I recommend serving with a dollop of smashed avocado on top) as well as extra veggies/fibre from spinach.
