Breakfast always seems to be the most difficult meal to make something healthy. It is just easier to grab a protein bar or one of the kids waffles on the way out the door. But I always feel hungry 20 minutes later when I do that. These meal prep breakfast bowls are one of my favorite ways to prep a healthy breakfast ahead of time. They are easy and full of flavor, and most importantly, they give you the nourishment and energy you need to start your day.

If you haven't made your hard-boiled eggs in the Instant Pot, you are missing out! It takes no time at all, they cook perfectly and they are so easy to peel! I like using hardboiled eggs for this meal prep breakfast bowl because they hold up well when re-heated. You could also do scrambled eggs.
Variations for the meal prep breakfast bowls:
- Hard Boiled Eggs, Scrambled Eggs, Fried Eggs
- Fresh or Sautéed Spinach (or kale, collards, swiss chard)
- Chorizo Meatballs or Sage & Apple Meatballs (or kielbasa)
- Sweet Potatoes (different spice mixtures), white potatoes, or even Roasted Cauliflower to keep it Low Carb
