Need a hearty breakfast that's ready when you are? Packed with fresh veggies and protein, these low FODMAP instant egg cups are the perfect sidekick for your busy day!
So, fun fact, when people ask my husband if I'm a morning person, he always says I “spring out of bed like a pop tart in a toaster.” And he's right. Once I'm awake, I don't have any trouble getting my butt out of bed. The problem is, my body tends to wake up a good hour before my brain does.
Mornings at our house are utter chaos. So, being brain dead while I'm trying to start my day creates some issues for me. Luckily, I've mastered the make-ahead breakfast!
These low FODMAP instant egg cups are a lifesaver! Plop in whatever leftovers you have kicking around, and you'll have a hearty breakfast that goes from your fridge to your face in under 10 minutes.
The best part is, if you know you've got a killer week headed your way, you can pre-package your “add-ons” ahead of time. When you're ready to eat, plop them in a cup and drop in two eggs and you'll have a healthy breakfast in minutes!
Keep It FODMAP Friendly
Looking for the perfect morning sidekick? These low FODMAP instant egg cups are a great way to start your day! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.
First up, eggs! Since eggs are a protein, they don't have any FODMAPs. That means you can eat as many as you'd like – from a FODMAP perspective at least.
Heads up! Some people have trouble digesting eggs on their own. If you know you have an issue eating whole eggs, try reducing the recipe to one egg or eating your instant egg cup with a side of toast or cereal, so it's not being digested alone.
We'll also be using one broccoli floret. According to the Monash app, broccoli is low FODMAP in servings of 3/4 of a cup (75 g) per sitting. Servings of 2 + 2/3 cups (240 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructose.
This recipe only uses one floret, so we'll be far below Monash's recommended range.
Next up, cheddar cheese. Monash has determined that cheddar cheese only has trace amounts of FODMAPs. That means a standard serving of cheddar cheese (40 g) won't contribute any notable FODMAPs to your FODMAP load.
Finally, we'll be sneaking in a few cherry tomatoes to liven things up! According to the Monash app, cherry tomatoes are low FODMAP in servings of 5 cherries (75 g) per sitting. Servings of 16 cherries (220 g) or more are high in the FODMAP fructan.
We're only using 1-2 cherries, which works out to 30 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
