Meal Prep: Easy Breakfast Burritos

breakfast burritos

I have recently embraced breakfast burritos because they are ridiculously easy to prep all at once and they are packed full of protein – giving me lots of energy to get through work until lunch.

I’ve purchased pre-made frozen breakfast burritos before, they taste great – but some are often loaded up with sodium and I like the idea of being able to customize what goes into my breakfast burritos – like adding lots of spinach. Here my recipe…. (more…)

Roasted Cauliflower Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Cauliflower Breakfast Bowl

I recently heard from my friends in Canada that cauliflower had reached an all-time price high of $8! It’s been so crazy that the New York Times even reported about it that it became a big media story.

Do you meal prep?

After a little Pinterest inspo, I set myself up to finally meal prep a few grab and go lunches on the weekend. I stuck to a pretty simple recipe and this is great starting off point for beginners. Here’s what made it:

Hard Boiled Eggs – While they sweet potatoes were baking, I made a couple hard boiled eggs. In the end, I ended up making more because just one egg wasn’t filling enough for me. I like to cut mine in half, sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and smoked paprika.

Steamed Broccoli – Lastly, I steamed up a bag of pre-cut organic broccoli and added them to my meal prep bowl. (more…)

It’s almost the weekend!

I’ve picked out 5 healthy recipes I want to try out this weekend and thought I would share my finds with you. I’ve been trying to get into this whole meal prep thing so I can eat healthier at home, instead of caving and ordering Thai take-out when there’s nothing in the fridge. Lack of groceries and waiting until I’m absolutely starving always ends badly.

My game plan right now is to shop on Saturday and prep as much as I can for the week on Sunday. Sounds good in theory right? I know if I can get myself to do this, I will be setting myself up for success. So here are the healthy recipes I’ve picked out for the week:
