Snack boxes are fun! It is scientifically proven that food is more enjoyable when it is cute and bite-sized and made for eating with fingers. Okay, not really. There aren’t any studies about that. But there should be! Maybe the love of this type of food is leftover nostalgia from the cafeteria platters and Lunchables of our childhoods. But think of this meal prep recipe as a breakfast picnic at your desk and we’re pretty confident you’ll fall in love with it, too.
Looking for a Whole30 breakfast? Though this meal prep recipe can be enjoyed by anyone at any time, we wanted to focus on creating a compliant breakfast option for those brave souls currently embarking on the Whole30 journey. The most important (and challenging) part of the Whole30 experience is to be well prepared against the pangs of unexpected cravings and hunger. And the beauty of this box is it includes a little bit of everything: protein, healthy sugars, and healthy fats- all represented in both sweet and savory flavors.
Sweet potatoes are a nutrient powerhouse and probably one of the best choices you could make for any meal, including your Whole30 breakfast. Their rich orange color is an indication of the presence of Vitamin A and various antioxidants that protect our bodies against free radical damage. Plus they are a near-perfect complex carbohydrate, keeping our blood sugar sustained and helping us to feel fuller for longer. We know we don’t have to convince anybody about the glory of avocados, but just in case you forgot, a great breakfast is incomplete without a serving of healthy fats- and avocados are a great option! Creamy, delicious, and, well… perfect. Hard-boiled eggs bring this meal prep recipe up to 16g of protein per serving, and it all comes together with a few sweet bites of fresh strawberries. Yes, yes, and yes. Your Whole30 breakfasts will never be the same!
You’re welcome ?
