Meal Prep Breakfast Taco Scramble

Eating a healthy breakfast during the week is easy when you meal prep. Prepping for meals ahead that you’re going to eat all week long can be knocked out on a Saturday or Sunday, making the weekdays less stressful.

If you’ve been following my free meal plans, you probably know I’ve been incorporating more meal prep recipes in them, recipes you can make once that can be heated up for the week. I created this for all of the breakfast lovers out there! It’s so good, even to eat for lunch if you wish. I tested this to see how it tasted reheated – it was awesome the next day.

I’m personally not the biggest breakfast person, except for weekends. My biggest meals are lunch and dinner but my brother loves breakfast and always did, so with him in mind I came up with this savory breakfast. I was actually super hungry after the gym this week, and was so happy when I remembered this was in the fridge. These are the glass meal prep containers (affil link) I have and love.
