Paleo Breakfast Meal Prep
For the first time in YEARS I am back in the habit of going to the gym at least 4 times a week. This past summer I experienced the worst workout slump of my life and by August I knew it was time for a change. I decided to start weight training and I am in LOVE with the feeling. I love how challenging the workouts are and how I feel after them, but most of all I love how quickly I have been able to see progress. During my running or cardio bunny days it was so hard to see consistent progress. I would work my way up to a certain mileage and then eventually just crap out or get injured. With weight training, I can actually see myself getting stronger day to day and that is a really cool feeling.
Since I am working out hard and trying to put on muscle, I am also trying to be sure that my body is properly fueled for the task. I tend to opt for intermittent fasting over eating breakfast during the work week, but with my new workout schedule I am finding some morning fuel is beneficial. I usually prep just some hard boiled egg for the week on Sundays, but I have decided to take it up a notch this week with a full meal.
For this breakfast meal prep I've got the trifecta of fats, proteins, and good carbs when I combine the eggs, bacon and sweet potatoes. This year I have fallen in love with jammy eggs and I cannot go back to a standard hard boiled. Follow the steps in this article to get a perfect jammy egg every time.
After everything was cooked I packed them into these small meal prep containers that I got and that are perfect for breakfast or snacks. Now I will have breakfast each weekday this week. I will probably just eat them cold and maybe with a little sriracha, but you could easily reheat these in the microwave.
