Anyone who knows me, knows I love breakfast! I might not be the earliest riser, but I still think it’s really important to get a good healthy meal first thing when you wake up! I like to make sure my breakfast includes a lot of protein, veggies and good carbs to fuel me through the rest of my day.

Now, I know a lot of you might be thinking, “I don’t have time to make a big breakfast every morning,” I get it, and I’ve got you covered. Meal prepping my breakfast saves me so much time and makes me able to have a great, nutritious meal every morning. I usually like to meal prep my breakfast over the weekend, like Sunday night, when I have more time. It sets me up for success for the next week, knowing that I don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen on Monday morning making food for me, Kyle and Brexton.

This power quinoa breakfast bowl is one of our favorite go-to meal prep breakfasts. It is packed with protein from ground turkey sausage (or sometimes I’ll put chorizo in Kyle’s), eggs, and good carbs from quinoa. I also like to cook my quinoa in bone broth for added protein! I usually store my egg, sausage, and veggie mixture separate from the quinoa.

In the morning, I’ll put that mixture into a pan on the stove, and then I will heat up the quinoa in the microwave. Once everything is nice and hot, combine those two and add cheese, avocado and cilantro on top and enjoy!
