Breakfast is the first meal of the day. Not only does it feed your body, but it also fuels your mood for the day! 

A good breakfast should be nutritious, filling, and it should also look appetizing. Cooking your breakfast in cups will give it an interesting appearance, good taste and flavor! Plus, they make great finger foods that can be transported with you as your day unfolds!

This recipe calls for ham and eggs. We recommend using fresh ham from your local butcher or buying clean sources of ham with no added sugars. Eggs should be pasture-raised and free of antibiotics. 

Ham is low in fat but will provide a good portion of protein. Eggs will add high-quality protein, riboflavin and selenium. 

Grana Padano supplies the same protein input as milk, but in a concentrated form. It will boost your daily intake of mineral salts, which form a vital part of a balanced diet, such as zinc, copper and phosphorus but, most importantly, calcium. 

Parsley is also a good source of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Besides, the green colour of parsley stands for the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy.
