I am constantly preaching to build a balanced plate but a lot of you say you struggle to get veggies in at breakfast. So…I got you!! I created the easiest breakfast meal prep for you that fits the build a plate method.
Why meal prep?
How many times have you felt like the week is so crazy that by the time you think about eating you just want something quick and easy? Which usually means takeout or something less nutrient dense and not super filling. And then you feel frustrated because you're hungry, struggling to hit your calories, and working towards your fitness goals just feels HARD.
Enter: Meal Prep. Imagine how much easier hitting your calories and building a balanced plate will feel when all the food is already made? All you have to do is heat it up. Now it feels JUST as easy and quick to eat as takeout.
I know meal prep can feel daunting but I don't want you spending hours in the kitchen either! Instead find quick meals(like this easy breakfast prep!) and you can be done in under an hour. If prepping full meals still feels too daunting try just takeout or cutting up some vegetables. Start with something small that feels manageable and add more over time.
Make your life easier by prepping in advance so during the week all you have to focus on is the actual eating part. My challenge to you is to prep ONE thing this weekend and see how much easier it feels to hit your goals next week ;)
Now onto the recipe for the easiest breakfast meal prep
What you need:
-3 medium peppers
-1 medium onion
-3 cups spinach
-32oz bag of diced hash browns(make sure they’re thawed when you use them!)
-1 cup cheddar cheese
How to make
Preheat oven to 375.
Start by cutting up your peppers and onions. If you wanted to save even more time precut veggies would work great here! Sauté veggies in a non stick pan. When mostly cooked add in spinach and cook down.
In a separate bowl whisk together 12 eggs. Season and measure with your heart salt, pepper, garlic powder & paprika.
In a 9x13 casserole dish layer thawed hash browns then veggies. Pour in the egg mixture and top with your cheddar cheese.
Pop in the oven at 375 for about 45-50mins or until eggs are cooked. Boom! Breakfast is prepped for the whole week with under 20 minutes of hands on prep!
