Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls

Healthy recipes to make for grab and go breakfasts all week!

Breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day. And since mornings suck … breakfast should be a meal that makes your taste buds happy and gives you fuel to crush the day. Right? Right.

That’s why these Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls are my new favorite thing.

They’re super easy to make.They can be made ahead of time .. like when you have an hour to spare on a Sunday.They’re perfect for quick grab and go breakfasts all week!

Let breakfast never be boring again!

Typically my breakfast meal prep includes hard boiling some eggs and calling it a day. But since I discovered how easy it is to make Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls … my hard boiled egg days are over!!!! (My coworkers will be happy. Those things are stinky).

I’ve taken the liberty to create four different flavors for you, so you can pick and choose which one you make … or you can make all four for a little bit of variety.

Each one of these Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls makes enough for four large bowls, but you can also divide the ingredients into more bowls if you don’t need quite so much.

Let’s talk about the flavors:

Mexican Meal Prep Bowl – it’s like a breakfast burrito, but in a bowl!Spinach and Mushroom Breakfast Meal Prep Bowl with soft boiled egg – oh, and feta and avocado. You can’t go wrong.Country Breakfast Meal Prep Bowl – just your typical breakfast. Substitute any meat (or use leftover meat from dinner!) and add veggies if you want. The world is your oyster.Savory Bacon Cheddar Chive Oatmeal – Oh me oh my. Oatmeal just got so so so so much better.

I love each and every one of these Breakfast Meal Prep Bowls equally, so don’t ask me to choose favorites.

They’re just all so good for different reasons, plus they’re healthy and super filling.

If you’re feeling ambitious, I urge you to make all four and mix it up each day of the week. That’s what I did and it only took about an hour! Yay for beating breakfast boredom.
