Ingredients & substitutions
- Eggs: The eggs are hard boiled ahead of time and added to lunch boxes for a great source of protein and vitamins.
- Avocado: Some sliced avocado is a great source of healthy fats, and avocado for breakfast is never a bad idea. Use a ripe, but firm avocado for the best results.
- Toast: Use whole wheat bread for some added whole grains, or you can use any bread you like for some carbs for energy. Use a gluten-free bread if you have a wheat intolerance.
- Tomatoes: Get a boost of vitamins and minerals at the start of your day by including some cherry tomatoes. You can include other fruits or veggies if you like.
How to boil eggs for meal prep
- Place the eggs in cold water and bring to a boil. Cover and take off the heat and allow to cook until hard boiled.
- Place the cooked eggs in iced water to cool quickly.
- Remove from the ice bath, peel and slice in half.
Tips for meal prepping avocado & Eggs
- Add lemon juice to the avocado. The sliced avocado will start to oxidize and turn brown within a few hours of slicing. To slow down the process, consider slicing as late as possible or adding lemon juice on top.
- Don’t soft boil the eggs. If you generally like the eggs runny, it may not be the best for this meal prep idea since they will likely run over the toast and avocados. You could consider leaving them uncut if you prefer runny yolks.
- Make sure that your eggs are fresh before hard boiling them. Place them into a large bowl of water to test them. Fresh eggs will sink to the bottom and you should discard any that float to the top.
- Place the eggs in cold water and bring them up to a boil. If you place the eggs directly into boiling water, they are more likely to crack. Starting them in cold water will ensure that they cook evenly through.
