Veggie Egg Power Cups
It’s no secret that I enjoy my carbs but lately I have been making a secret plan to lose the carbs. Don’t laugh; I’m being serious here. Okay, I know that losing all carbs is not entirely realistic but eating less carbs is doable, right? More importantly, ensuring my family eats healthy meals is important to me. We heard it growing up, eating right starts with the most important meal of the day, breakfast, and I stand by that with my own family.
From the moment I wake up it feels as though my day starts at 90 mph and I often forget to take care of myself, I know other moms and dads can relate. Eggs are one way I start my family off with a boost of natural vitamins and minerals and are considered one of my quick and easy go-to meals, avoiding the processed and boxed foods most turn to for breakfast. Eggs are jam-packed full of natural healthy benefits; pass over the multivitamin in a bottle for nature’s multivitamin.

Recently Burnbrae Farms has relaunched their New and improved NaturEgg Omega Plus eggs in regular shell eggs or easy convenient liquid eggs packs; can I just say, CAMPING?! I feel like I needed to shout that from the rooftops to justify how giddy I feel about it; I’m a fan. I’m also a fan of the ability to feed my family healthy foods while I’m camping. Did you know Burnbrae Farms liquid eggs can be frozen ahead? Pop your frozen cartons of liquid eggs in your cooler to help keep your camp food cold and the next day you’ll have ready-made breakfast, a two-in-one purpose. That’s what I call genius, easy, 40% of your daily requirement of omega-3’s with convenience in a carton. BOOM!
Recipe? Right. I was a little sidetracked there in all my excitement but really, a complete multivitamin from nature with convenience in a carton? Enough said.
Going back to my decision to eat less carbs, I decided to make mini crust-less quiche, Veggie Egg Power Cups to be exact. You’ve probably seen the cauliflower pizza crust healthy food trend going around, a perfect nutritious and Paleo replacement for these crust-less quiche.
These Veggie Egg Power Cups, a SuperFood recipe in a cup, are super easy to make and can be refrigerated for a few days to make convenient and nutritious go-to snacks, breakfast to-go or a pre-workout energy boost.
Assembling this Superfood recipe is as easy as it looks. Place the cauliflower in the bottom, sprinkle the rest of the ingredients evenly throughout the 6 large muffin cups and pour the Omega Plus liquid eggs with added herbs to 3/4’s full. Place in the oven for 20 minutes on 375 degrees F; serve warm or cold.

More Benefits of NaturEgg Omega Plus Eggs
Eight tablespoons or 100 mL of Naturegg Omega Plus Liquid Eggs contains 40% of the daily requirement of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are essential nutrients for your body. Omega-3 fatty acids are not produced by the human body. This means we have to acquire them through our diet. Naturegg Omega Plus Liquid Eggs is an excellent alternative to whole eggs as it is a low fat source of protein.
Canada’s Food Guide recommends that you eat at least two 75 gram servings of fatty fish each week. This equals about 500 mg of DHA + EPA omega-3 daily. Each 2 egg serving of Omega Plus Liquid eggs has:
- 250 mg DHA omega-3
- 250 mg EPA omega-3

I just bought some Naturegg Omega Plus Liquid Eggs and I have to try recipes with it. I should try yours first. I am trying to cut down on carbs also.
Carbs are hard to cut down on; pasta and bread are two of my favourite things. LOL. My toddler liked these which should say a lot. 😉
I haven’t tried this product yet, and now you have me really interested to try something with it! Delish recipe! Angie xo
