Meal Prep Chronicles: Avocado and Egg Breakfast

Allow me to preface this post with – I prepped this before watching What the Health. Ha! I will not waste food because I paid for it and so bear with me as I work to improve the nutrition offerings of our household.

This first prep was found on one of my favorite recipe websites – Damn Delicious. This Avocado and Egg Breakfast works! I am on Day 2 of eating this meal. While my mind is not quite at ease with the eggs, I am pressing forward. The kale is delicious, avocado amazing and the rice is just okay. I could have done better with that rice. Hub-Rock will be trying one of these (if I don’t eat them first). I’ll let you know how that goes.

In the meantime, let’s take a moment to break down the primary ingredients of this meal and why it is a good idea for you to give it a try.
Note: I am intentionally omitting the eggs.

It’s just a great food! I can remember eating curly kale with pickle juice at my grandma’s house. Certainly, the kale was boiled to death but it was sooooo good! Kale is a good source of iron, vitamin C, vitamin K, antioxidants, vitamin A and calcium. It is also known to reduce cholesterol levels and is a great anti-inflammatory food. In this particular recipe, the kale was sauteed in olive oil with minced garlic. Yummers! This was my favorite part of the breakfast.


According to Medical News Today, “Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids.” Avocados also have this creamy taste that can be used in dressings, cheese alternatives and more. This was the second best part of the meal for me.

Brown Rice

I will admit with the news stories about plastic rice recently, I was second-guessing this portion of the meal. I got past all of that and went for it. Again, I could have done better with the rice, but overall it worked. This food is claimed to have benefits for the heart and digestion. Yet another anti-inflammatory food, the manganese and dietary fiber content in rice leads researchers to believe that it is one of the foods that may prevent cancer.
