We know you’re probably tired of boring detox and diet meals that taste like cardboard and leave you hungry and unsatisfied. However, not eating healthy can cause weight gain, or weight loss to stop or reverse.
Well, the Detox recipes in my new cookbook Lose Weight By Eating- Detox Week are delicious, easy to make and best of all, very filling!
Save more time in the morning by prepping the omelets the night before. Fill the muffin cups with veggies and whisk the eggs in a bowl, cover both with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge. The next morning, give the eggs another quick whisk, then pour them into the muffin cups, top with cheese, and pop in the oven. This will take less than 5 minutes.
And finally, yes, you can reheat these for the very busiest mornings. Make and refrigerate them a few days ahead and pop them in a 200°F oven while you get ready. They need 20 minutes to heat, but can be left in the oven to stay warm for up to an hour.

- You can use any cheese you like! Cheddar and feta both work well.
- If you like spice, add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce to the eggs.
