My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. But, work kind of gets in the way of me having time to sit down and have a leisurely breakfast during the week. So, I meal-prep my breakfast for the work week. Here are some of my go to breakfast meal-prep options.
1. Boiled Eggs and Avocado
This is the most cost effective of all my go-to breakfast options. Sunday night I boil at least 6 eggs for the week. Then, I separate them in small containers. All I have to do in the morning is grab the container, add some avocado and I’m good to go. It is even better with Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel seasoning. If the eggs and avocado aren’t enough grab some fruit to go along with it. This can also be prepped by dividing your fruit into individual servings in a small container as well.
2. Breakfast Burritos
There are so many links on Pinterest for these. I was a little leery of reheated scrambled eggs. But, I’m not anymore. These frozen burritos do so great in the microwave! A little work on a Sunday night equals days of no work in the morning. It’s so satisfying to wake up and know that I will have a hot breakfast at work and will not have to spend any money for it. To make it a healthier option I sometimes nix the sausage and add a healthy portion of veggies.
Yes, cereal. If you don’t have the access to a fridge; or, you don’t trust the shared fridge in your office’s common area, there is a way to prep your cereal to enjoy at the comfort of your desk. The night before put a serving of cereal in a Tupperware bowl. Next, pour the amount of milk you will need in a separate small airtight container. Then, when you get to your desk the next morning, pour your milk in your cereal bowl and bon appetit.
4. Trader Joe’s Frozen Oatmeal
I’m sure there’s a way I could do this myself. But, you pay for convenience. Trader Joes frozen oatmeal is delicious. I like to add a little extra brown sugar to mine. And to make it extra good, I crumble up a granola bar and have a little crunch with every bite. The only thing to prep here is the extra mix-ins and/or toppings you want. Simply put them in a sandwich bag the night before. The next morning all you have to do is grab the oatmeal out of the freezer, throw it in your lunch bag and walk out the door.
5. Pre-Packaged Egg White Sandwiches
Ok, so this is a cheat. There’s nothing to prep. But, again, you pay for convenience. On the week I make my Sam’s run, I always pickup whatever egg white and turkey sausage option they have. Another healthy grab and go breakfast.
