Healthy breakfast meal prep ideas for your weight loss journey that will make your mornings stress-free and get you on the right
Breakfast is the one meal I meal prep every single week, without fail.
It’s not secret that I’m not a morning person, so if I’m going to have a healthy breakfast, it needs to be ready to eat when I wake up.
Before I started meal prepping breakfasts, I would grab quick and easy (and usually not very healthy) options like cereal, granola bars, and bagels. None of those things would keep me full for very long and I ended up overeating later because of it.
Meal prepping breakfast was SO good for my 100-pound weight loss journey and especially for maintaining that weight loss afterward.
I typically spend less than an hour every Sunday afternoon cooking breakfasts for my husband and I to eat all week long.
I like to divvy them out into glass containers which helps with portion sizes and it makes them so easy to grab in the morning.
These are the meal prep containers I use!
