Happy Belated Easter Empowered Fitness fans! We hope you had a fun-filled holiday weekend. Every Easter, we find ourselves in the same pickle: what to do with those leftover Easter eggs? Now the ones we are talking about are the chicken eggs, not those of the chocolate variety (not like we need to tell you what to do with those).
Each year, as many of you do, we buy eggs hard boil and paint. Sometimes we don’t get around to coloring them all, or we end up with a boatload of finished eggs that we don’t know what to do with! You can only eat so many hard boiled eggs, even if they are perfectly done. So, we’ve come up with a list of five ways you can use up your leftover Easter eggs!
- Breakfast Tacos. For an easy recipe you can make the morning after Easter, these breakfast tacos are a delight! Packed with protein, they will also stay good in the fridge for up to a week if you want to cook ahead for the week.
- Greek Yogurt Egg Salad. Egg salad sandwiches are so delicious and quick to make, but they are often packed with fat from the huge amounts of mayo. Well, we have found a healthier egg salad recipe that rivals any you have tried! With only a bit of mayo for flavor, this recipe uses Greek yogurt to bind together a hearty egg salad that can be combined with any other sandwich toppings you desire!
- Frozen Egg Whites. Did you know egg whites can be frozen for up to a year? Seriously! A less expensive alternative to the cartons of egg whites, separate the whites of your leftover Easter eggs and freeze them in an ice cube tray. Easy as your next egg white omelette.
- Quiche/Frittata. Oh, quiche. You are so delicious, yet often made with so much cream it makes us cringe! Try out our eggcellent recipe for turkey bacon & broccoli frittata instead, which can also be made ahead and frozen for a few months.
- Egg Drop Soup. This is one of the simplest soups to make that is also protein-rich! Use whole eggs or egg whites, depending on how lean you want your meal to be. We also recommend adding some veggies to get your dose of carbs. Try the recipe here.
