This week’s recipe comes to us from PaleOMG. One of the common issues we hear with meal prep and eating healthy is the time and effort it takes to prepare everything to make. This casserole makes it about as easy as possible to get the proper nutrients and macros you need to start your morning.
Let’s face it, convenience is king. When you don’t have something prepared, you’re going to go to the path of least resistance. Generally speaking something with a long shelf life that lacks the proper vitamins and minerals we desire for a morning meal. With only 5 ingredients you’d have to purchase, all the rest we have lying around the house. This casserole is done in less than an hour and set’s you up for a meal for every morning of the week.
