We usually have dinner early evening. Also, I usually don’t eat a lot in the evening since it helps me to sleep better. That being said, you can image that I wake up a bit hungry and ready to have breakfast.
Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day and I always try to make sure I eat healthy in the morning to start my day well. Smoothies, breakfast burrito, chocolate chips pancakes with maple syrup on top, scrambled eggs or a toast with peanut butter or almond butter are great for breakfast.
However, some mornings are so busy for most of us that it’s difficult to have a healthy breakfast meal, am I right? Well, the answer is not, if you have your healthy meal-prep breakfasts waiting for you in the fridge.
Isn’t it great waking up in the morning and having a hearty, homemade breakfast ready for you to dig in? You not only will save yourself some time and energy but also you’ll have a nutritious breakfast even during the busy morning days.
For these healthy breakfast meal-prep bowls recipe I made sweet potato frittata because I love having eggs in the morning and I also serve it with some berries and cashews.
You can also replace berries for any other fruits likes bananas and strawberries. If you prefer, you can serve this amazing frittata with some chopped veggies, breakfast cookies, hashes, granola with Greek yogurt, roasted potatoes and breakfast sausage.
This recipe is great also because it’s freezer-friendly. If you prefer, instead of making this frittata in a baking dish, you can make it in muffin tins to have egg muffins. When you make this recipe in muffin tins is easier to freeze.
