All About Brunch: 5 Ways to Make Brunch-Style Eggs Without Breaking Your Budget 

As we move into the Regular Season of the F45 Challenge, it’s incredibly important to fuel up with quality food both before and after a workout to aid in recovery. There’s nothing better than feeling accomplished after finishing a tough workout and having a delicious, healthy brunch to look forward to! Post-workout meals are essential in promoting muscle recovery, minimizing inflammation, and ensuring our body has enough quality fuel to take us into the next workout. Selecting a post-workout meal that’s rich in a quality source of protein, fresh veggies, and whole grains will help to maximize muscle recovery, promote energy, and curb cravings throughout the day. 

Eggs are a quality, complete protein source that contain all essential amino acids. They are budget-friendly and can be prepared in a variety of ways. When grocery shopping, be sure to look for quality-sourced eggs, which have a certified organic label (USDA in the USA) and are pasture-raised. Chickens that are pasture-raised are fed grains without animal byproducts and are free to roam the pasture through the day, therefore producing healthier, more nutrient-dense eggs. 

We’ve outlined some of our favorite gourmet brunch-style recipes that you can whip up in under 20 minutes. The best part is that these delicious egg-based breakfast recipes are not only full of flavor, but are budget-friendly and require minimal ingredients! Stay clear of fast food and skip the restaurant wait lines, because brunch is best served at home with friends and family. For more amazing brunch recipes, refer to the Recipe Library.
