- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp bell pepper, chopped
- 4 slices deli chicken, chopped
- Handful arugula

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Next, add the bell pepper, arugula, grated cheese, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
Spray a 6-cup muffin tray with non-stick cooking spray. Carefully add the egg-mixture into the muffin tins – filling them 3/4.
