We all know that it’s important to start our days with a well-rounded breakfast, especially if you’ve got a lot on the to-do list! The right nutrients give your body the fuel it needs to stay energized, your brain the fuel it needs to process and make clear decisions, and your metabolism the fuel it needs to stay active. Most of us know this conceptually, but it can still be so difficult to prepare a proper breakfast in the morning. If you’re running late, the last thing you want to do is take the time to cook an omelet. But what if you don’t have to? Bacon wrapped omelets might sound like something only available at a nice brunch restaurant, but consider them officially added to your meal prep recipes. Yup! This is a breakfast you make once and then get to enjoy throughout the week.
Not only are these bacon wrapped omelets about to make your weekday mornings infinitely better, they are also gluten free, paleo, and Whole30-approved! And you’ll love how moist and flavorful they are. The bacon crisps around the edges and keeps them from drying out while baking, and the flavor combination is obviously a classic. So delicious!
And maybe you’re not so used to seeing salad on a breakfast plate. It might be new for you, but remember that little chat we had about how important a balanced breakfast is? We know we don’t have to tell you all of the nutritional benefits of kale (hello, one of the most nutrient dense plants on the planet!), so we think it has earned its place in a few breakfast meal prep recipes here and there. And don’t worry, we’re not expecting you to indulge in kale completely raw and untreated. This side salad is simple, but the dressing is delicious. And don’t skip the massaging step! It might sound silly, you’re not a kale spa (or are you?). But that prep step is going to significantly change the texture of your kale, transforming it from weird dinosaur vegetable into delicious side salad. One completely worthy of sitting next to bacon wrapped omelets 😉
