Which Cycle of the 17 Day Diet Is this Egg Muffin Recipe Approved For?

If you’re on the 17 Day Diet, this recipe is approved for all cycles. No changes are necessary.

However, if you want to experiment with different ingredients that are approved during Cycle 2 or 3 (such as potatoes), then obviously they will be approved later in the diet.

For a complete list of approved foods for Cycle 1, make sure you check out my 17 Day Diet Cycle 1 Food List.

You can also check out my book on Amazon called Fast Track Your Weight Loss With the 17 Day Diet which has all the food lists (and a 7 day meal plan, too!).

Which Phase of the Kickstart Diet Can I Have These Egg Bites?

If you happen to be on the 17 Day Kickstart Diet, you can have these egg bites starting on the 4-Day Soak Up Phase when eggs are allowed. 

However, skip the cheese if you want these starting on Day 4. Otherwise, you’ll need to wait until The 10-Stabilize Phase when both eggs and cheese are allowed.

If you’re not entirely sure which foods are allowed during each phase, make sure you check out my 17 Day Kickstart Diet Food List.

Keto Diet Friendly Egg Muffins

These Spinach & Mushroom Egg Bites are definitely Keto Diet Friendly. Make sure you use full-fat cheese when you make these. 

If you need to increase your fat intake, you can use a little bit of heavy whipping cream, too!

Silicone Baking Cups For Easy Removal of Egg Bites

There’s a good possibility that no matter how much non-stick spray you use, your egg bites may stick to your pan. 

I highly recommend picking up a half dozen of these Silicone Baking Cups or even a full silicone muffin tray.

Baking Tools To Use

  • Baking sheets and dishes
  • Silicone muffin tins & cups
  • Mitts, towels & more

How to Freeze & Reheat Egg Muffins

These Spinach & Mushroom Egg bites are perfect for busy mornings so they can be easily made ahead of time, frozen and reheated for breakfast when you need something quick and easy!

Here are the steps you’ll need to take to successfully preserve a batch or two for future meals:

Step 1 – Freeze The Egg Muffins

If you have a vacuum sealer, then you’re in the best position. I have one and it is awesome at preserving food for future use.

If you do have a sealer machine, make sure you freeze your muffins overnight before you vacuum seal. Otherwise, you’ll likely squish your muffins if you seal them fresh.

If you don’t have a vacuum sealer, allow your egg bites to cool completely in the refrigerator prior to freezing them.

Add the egg bites to a sealable bag and try to remove as much air as possible before sealing the bag.

Pop them in your freezer and keep them there until future use.

Step 2 – Defrost & Reheat Egg Muffins

The night before you want to eat your egg bites, take two out of the freezer and allow them to thaw out in the refrigerator overnight.

The next morning, place your egg muffins in the microwave and reheat in 30 second intervals, checking in between each interval to see if they are warm enough as every microwave is different.

Chances are 30 seconds will be plenty of time, especially if they are completely defrosted from the night before.

Easy peasy!

    • Hi Lorraine! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe! I don’t keep nutritional info on recipes because individual results will vary depending on brands of ingredients used, changes to recipe, etc. The best bet is if you have an app (like my fitness pal), it can calculate nutrition info for you. The changes you made to the recipe would definitely produce different calculations than the original. Hope this helps!
