Healthy Veggie Egg Bake

Hi Friends! Happy Valentine’s Day!  We don’t usually do much for Valentine’s Day, and this year is no different.  With our crazy schedule, I really do like the nights at home just relaxing and watching TV, and that’s where you’ll find us tonight.  We may even get a little crazy and order out instead of cooking.  I made a new creation for my meal prep this week that I wanted to share with you.  It’s not really a Valentine’s recipe, unless you really love eggs.  But, since it’s Wednesday I’m sharing anyways.

This week I meal prepped breakfast and lunch.  I have really been all about the veggies lately, so both meals were crammed full and I had a ton left over to eat throughout the week.  Since lunch was simple, I’ll start with that and then give you the recipe for my awesome breakfast!

I cooked a pound of ground turkey and seasoned it with pepper only.  I bought two bags of Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry Veggies.  I cooked these in a little coconut oil and threw in some fresh onions and zucchini.  Eat Your Veggies!! 

Lunch was super simple!  Each of my lunch containers had 2.5 oz of turkey and 1 cup of veggies.  I also ate a half of a pear with lunch each day. 

Moving on to the best part – breakfast.  The last couple of weeks I have been eating a Nature Valley protein bar for breakfast.  While it did fill me up, it had more sugar and fat in it than I liked, so I decided to find something else for this week.  I wanted eggs, but I also wanted to bulk up the flavor and not eat just plain eggs every day.  I didn’t want to get tired of them by the middle of the week.  And, I wanted them to be healthy.  I scrolled through Pinterest and looked at so many different “egg bake” recipes.  Most of them had milk, cheese, or potatoes  – all of which I am not supposed to be eating.  So, I decided to kind of just throw one together and cross my fingers that it would come out okay.  It came out exactly as I had hoped!  The best part of this is that you can add anything extra that you want.  It’s so versatile!

For my recipe you will need:  1 red bell pepper, 1 orange bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 2 green bell peppers, 1 cup chopped onion, 1 small can green chilis, 2 cups of spinach, 3 whole eggs, and 4 egg whites.

Preheat the oven to 400 and grease a 9×9 baking dish.  

First I chopped up all of the veggies and threw them all in a dish and gave them a good stir. 

Look at how pretty these peppers look! 

Onions: 

And for a little extra kick – Chilis (except I grabbed mild on accident): 

Now stir them all together.  

Next I whisked the eggs together until they were mixed, seasoned them with pepper, and then poured them over the veggies. 

After that I covered it with the spinach.  Next time I will stir the spinach in better.  A few of the pieces on top got a little crispy. 

It was as simple as that!  I baked it in a 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes.  I like my eggs to be well done. 

It was perfect!  The flavors all came through and it was the perfect portion. 

This made 6 servings.  Here is the nutrition information for each serving:

I am eating this with a side of chicken breakfast sausage.  It has kept me full until lunch and my eggs were definitely not boring!
