It’s the most important meal of the day, and it’s even better for lunch! This week for meal prep we switched it up the regular lunch meal prep with some scrambled eggs, mixed vegetables, baked sweet potato rounds, and at my man’s request, some oh-so-delicious thick cut slices of bacon. Mmmmmm bacon.
I might be an early riser during the week (I’m usually out and about by 6:15 am), but I’m not a big fan of eating actual breakfast thing in the morning. I usually opt for a protein shake on my way out the door, then enjoy a heartier lunch closer to noon. Maybe that’s why brunch is so dear to my heart. Well, maybe that and the fact that it’s acceptable to day drink (see: bottomless mimosas).
The real reason why this meal prep is so delicious is the lean protein from the eggs, loads of nutrients from this hearty mix of vegetables, and the creamy carb goodness from the sweet potato. Oh, and the bacon of course. (Sorry, no mimosas!) If you aren’t a big fan of bacon or are trying to cut back on your fat intake, go ahead and swap it in for some turkey bacon or chicken sausage. Or skip the meat all together. Either way, you’re bound to enjoy this meal, whether you have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
