From Kate: "I eat these eggs for breakfast every single day. I love them and look forward to them every morning. They’re creamy with an extra little kick of flavor and go perfect with my oat milk cappuccino."

What You Need:

  • 5 organic eggs
  • Kite Hill Cream Cheese
  • Spray extra virgin olive oil
  • Everything But the Bagel seasoning
  • Truffle zest
  • High-quality olive oil

Directions: 

  1. Spray olive oil in your pan and crack five eggs into the pan.
  2. Set the heat to low (this is essential to making the eggs nice and fluffy).
  3. Stir regularly to make sure the eggs cook evenly.
  4. Once the eggs are semi-cooked, add one tablespoon of Kite Hill Vegan Cream Cheese. This step really helps makes the eggs extra creamy and delicious.
  5. Once the eggs are cooked to your liking, plate them, and drizzle with high-quality olive oil. Pro tip: When tasting olive oil, better quality olive oil should almost make you cough and have a little peppery flavor.
  6. Top plated eggs with Everything But the Bagel seasoning and truffle zest.
  7. Enjoy!

Whether it’s a post workout shake, breakfast on the go, or as a snack to tide me over between meals, I’m a big smoothie fan.I love adding some secret greens into my smoothies. Frozen kale blends right in and avocado creates a nice creamy texture. Adding collagen is good for your hair, skin, and nails and I love the flavor of my chocolate protein! This smoothie is a must-try!"
