Paleo Pizza Egg Muffins Recipe

Paleo Pizza Egg Muffins | stupideasypaleo.com

Paleo Pizza Egg Muffins are a great pre-workout snack or quick breakfast! They’re loaded with veggies, and they’re gluten- and dairy-free. If you’re doing a Whole30, they’re 100% Whole30-friendly.

Breakfast can be the toughest meal of the day to get organized with, and my go-to tip for quick morning eats is to steam a dozen eggs on your weekly cook-up day. But sometimes, I get tired of just plain eggs, and these little Paleo Pizza Egg Muffins are the perfect solution.

I started making egg muffins a couple years ago, and they can be done in a multitude of ways: Add meat and switch up the veggies and spices! You’ll be amazed how many interesting combinations you can come up with. These particular Paleo Pizza Egg Muffins would be great with some browned sausage mixed in, too.

If you don’t have Flavor God Pizza Seasoning—which I realize is quite possible—just substitute it for the spices listed in the Notes section of the recipe. Have fun with it! Even the cat thought they smelled good.

Paleo Pizza Egg Muffins
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: Makes 12
 

Ingredients
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup chopped cooked broccoli
  • ¼ cup sliced black olives
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp Flavor God Pizza Seasoning*
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 12-cup muffin tray with liners and grease them. I use silicone liners like these and grease them lightly with coconut oil. Set aside.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, melt the coconut oil. Add the mushrooms, cooking and stirring until the moisture is drawn out and the mushrooms begin to brown slightly, about 8 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the broccoli and black olives. Stir to combine.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the coconut milk, pizza seasoning, salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon the veggie mixture evenly into the muffin liners. They should be about ⅔ full. Now, pour the egg mixture evenly into the muffin liners until it’s about ¾ full.
  5. Bake the egg muffins for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out cleanly.

Notes
*If you don’t have Flavor God Pizza Seasoning, use 1 tsp garlic powder + ¼ tsp dried basil + ¼ tsp dried oregano.

Smoked Salmon Egg Bake

Portable pre-workout protein with a smoked salmon twist

With their protein and healthy fat profile, eggs make a fantastic pre-workout food. They’re rich in essential nutrients like vitamin D, choline and folate and are a relatively inexpensive way to incorporate more protein into your diet. In this recipe, I bumped up the veggie content with the zucchini and green onions. Cut into squares, and take them with you on the go!

  • 1 lb (454 g) zucchini, shredded
  • 3 green onions (2 oz [57 g]), white and light green parts, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sea salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C and grease an 8-inch x 8-inch/20-centimeter x 20-centimeter baking dish with 1 teaspoon coconut oil.
  2. Now sweat the zucchini and green onions. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add 1 tablespoon/15 milliliters coconut oil. Add the zucchini, green onions, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the veggies are wilted and lightly browned. You want most of the moisture to cook off , about 6 to 8 minutes. Let the mixture cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat the eggs together with the dill, then mix in the smoked salmon. When the zucchini and green onions are cool, add them to the eggs and stir until everything is well combined. Pour the mixture into the baking dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the center is set and not liquid.

Pre- and Post-Workout Fueling Summary for Athletes

Pre Post Workout Venn 2.0 More on this to come soon, but here is a simple diagram to help you remember general fueling recommendations for pre- and post-workout nutrition.

In short, for a pre-workout meal, stick to protein and fat while the post-workout window – ideally within 15-30 min of finishing your training – should focus on protein and carbs. Both have protein in common. If you’re into performance, adequate protein is a must.
