How many ounces of protein in a portion? What are the best fruits to eat? Can I eat potatoes? Is an avocado a fruit or a vegetable? How high can I stack my plate? Do I have to eat vegetables for breakfast? These are just some of the questions we are asked everyday. So for the next several weeks we are going to answer your questions. If you would like to submit questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post on our Facebook page
We will explore each section of the plate: fruits, vegetables, protein, grains, and fats. Our blog will include subjects such as:
- portion size
- the best foods to eat in each food group
- food prep tips and tricks
- recipes (see below for a sample)
We will also touch on exercise, eating out and how to survive the holidays without packing on the pounds.
- Bacon and Egg Cups
- 6 eggs
- 6 pieces of Bacon (cooked)
- Pan Spray
- Salt and Pepper
Cook bacon per your usual method. (We suggest oven bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes on a foil lined pan.) Spray muffin tin with pan spray. Arrange 1 piece of bacon per muffin cup. Crack an egg in each with out scrambling so the yolk is still intact. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake in 400° oven 10-12 minutes.
Tip: We like to double the recipe and make ahead for the week. In the mornings just pop in the microwave and serve. If you like a runny yolk, you may need to experiment with the baking time and take into consideration the microwave reheat.
