Mini Veggie Frittatas

Meal Prep Mini Veggie Frittatas
All weekend long I’ve been working on my new meal prep series with a focus on simplicity and ease. These Mini Veggie Frittatas made meal prep this week so easy! I can’t wait to try out different varieties… the options are endless.

Mini Veggie Frittatas Meal Prep

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and mix all your ingredients in a medium bowl, adding salt and pepper.

You could EASILY double the recipe to fill the whole muffin tin. Or you can do like I did and make a different kind of meal prep freezer breakfast. You cannot see here, but I will be showing you that one right after this! 🙂

Next, place the muffin tin in the oven for about 22-25 minutes, remove and let cool completely if you’re putting them away. Or, let them cool enough to handle and eat. The mini veggie frittatas should pop right out!

Now, depending on how many you made and which days you want to eat these or how many people they are for, you can put them in the fridge or the freezer. I left mine in the fridge up to 3 days. 1 serving is 2 frittatas, so if you made 6 for 1 person and plan to eat them 3 days in a row, you can leave them in the fridge. Another way you could divide them is say you made 6, but plan on eating them every other day throughout the week to keep some variety, place some in the fridge and some in the freezer.

Finally, wrap them individually and place in a ziploc bag or tupperware. I microwaved them turning every 30 seconds until they were no longer cold! 🙂

Bacon, Egg, Sweet Potato Nests

Meal Prep Bacon, Egg, Sweet Potato NEsts

My main objective: Think smarter, not harder. Everything I’ve been producing has the same goal of, “how can I make cooking healthy easier?” These bacon, egg, sweet potato nests fit all of my wants and desires! Furthermore, they can be frozen for meal prep. These bacon, egg, sweet potato nest will be on week one of my meal prep series along side my mini veggies frittatas. I tried to keep it simple, but still have some variety.

Shredded Sweet Potatoes

First things first, you’re going to start cooking 6 pieces of bacon in a pan on low heat, but we don’t want it fully cooked and crispy. You want it to be partially done so it’s still soft because you’re going to use it as the ‘walls’ of your nest.

While the bacon is cooking, peel your sweet potato and use a cheese grater or a food processor to shred it up. Place the shredded sweet potato on paper towels to press out some of the moisture.

I used a 1/4 cup sized measuring cup to scoop the sweet potato into the muffin tin. Then used my fingers to press it down tight to the bottom. Divide it evenly between 6 muffin tins. You could easily double this whole recipe and make a full muffin tin worth, 12, or do like I did and use the other 6 spots for another recipe: Mini Veggies Frittatas. I don’t like to get bored throughout the week!

Finally, crack an egg in each muffin cup and top with salt and pepper. Cook for 22-25 minutes and let cool a little before taking them out of the muffin tin.

To freeze them, wrap individually in foil and place in ziploc baggies! Microwave to reheat. I tried at 30 second intervals, rotating in between.

Double Strawberry Breakfast Parfait

double strawberry breakfast parfait high protein

What makes this a double strawberry breakfast parfait, you ask? Notice the pink yogurt… I turned it strawberry flavored with my Zero Carb Isopure Strawberries and Cream protein powder. I suppose you could also just use already flavored yogurt for your strawberry breakfast parfaits, but this is my way. 🙂 With 22 grams of protein, this is a great filling breakfast that will keep you fueled for awhile. Also, this is the best granola in the entire world, hands down, no questions asked.  (more…)

Spinach Mushroom and Tomato Omelette

STMOmelette

 

I don’t know about you, but I suck at making omelettes, plus they require my time and attention and in the morning when I’m trying to get ready, I need something quick. With these spinach, tomato and mushroom omelettes you can easily add to your meal prep day. I like to spend a few hours on Sunday prepping my food for 3 to 4 days and these don’t require any cooking while meal prepping so there’s no excuse! You can either let the ingredients sit in your refrigerator and possibly go to waste, or assemble it all in a little baggie. Makes sense. I will prep enough for up to 3 days, then while you get ready for work or school in the morning you can just throw the bag in a boiling pot of water and let it do it’s thing.
