Breakfast Meal Prep

For everyone who has to rush out the door in the AM, this healthy breakfast meal prep is your secret weapon to eating protein packed and veggie loaded breakfast Mexican style.

Sauteed broccoli, cauliflower and bell pepper, with scrambled eggs, salsa and whole grain toast.

If you are very hungry and looking for very high protein breakfast, use more eggs. You can also sprinkle cheese on top of veggies or eggs, or just sprinkle some cheese. What the heck?!

What Veggies Can I Use?

This breakfast idea is not only easy, protein packed but is veggie loaded too. Use what you have on hand.

Any firm veggies that you can saute quickly:

  • Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Zucchini
  • Shredded carrots
  • Spiralized butternut squash
  • Eggplant

Can I Use Egg Whites?

Yes. To replace 8 large eggs you will need to use 2 cups egg whites.

I usually use organic or local eggs from a farmer where I know chicken roam free. Egg yolk contains most of the egg’s good stuff – iron, folate and vitamins.

According to Harvard, dietary cholesterol found in egg yolk does not translate into bad cholesterol for your heart. Things have really changed and it’s good to keep updated on latest research.

How Long Does It Last?

Refrigerate assembled containers for up to 5 days. I used these meal prep containers.
