What’s great about it

These savoury muffins are great for a light breakfast or lunch, or as a savoury snack option to take with you to work. Kale is a great source of all three antioxidants: beta-carotene and vitamins C and E. Eggs are high in protein and contain all the essential amino acids needed for growth and repair. Including quality protein sources into your meals every day supports weight loss + healthy metabolism, maintains a healthy immune system, curbs appetite and helps to sustain lean muscle.
