Meal Prepping Green Eggs and Ham

I’m still working on making good eating choices for my lifestyle. What that means to me is to eat food that is yummy but good for me.  It also means that I need to prepare food so that it is easy for me to make these good choices. That means using some time during the week to do some meal prep. I often boil eggs, peel, and refrigerate them so I can have a quick high-protein snack.  I wash and chop a bunch of lettuce and store it in a Ziploc bag so that I can quickly and easily make some salads during the week. It is easy to add toppings to the lettuce to make the salad slightly more interesting.

Today, I found a baked egg recipe on the http://www.dailyburn.com website. I modified it a little to make it easier for me. If you want the original recipe, click on this link.

Spinach Green Eggs and Ham Recipe with Tater Tots

Ingredients
1 10 oz box frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
8 large eggs
8 oz cheddar cheese (I would reduce the quantity a little)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
salt/pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 red (or green) bell pepper, chopped
8-10 oz ham cold cuts, chopped
1 cup tater tots, defrosted and shredded

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Saute onions, peppers, and ham in a pan and let cool.
  3. Squeeze excess water out of spinach.
  4. Mix ham and onion mixture with spinach eggs, cheese, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
  5. Layer the tater tots on the bottom of a 9″x13″ baking dish.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the tater tots and bake for about 25 minutes.

According to the Daily Burn site, the egg mixture can be stored in the fridge for a week.  Just reheat in the microwave at 50% power for 60-90 seconds.  Living Hilo Style.

  1. Aloha Anne! Thank you for the post. One of the best ways I have found to eat smarter is to participate in the http://www.wholelifechallenge.com which is an online LQ (Life Quality) enhancing team effort which is particularly good for helping us learn and adapt healthier eating habits. As a volunteer Captain, I have led the Hilo Health Cooperative WLC team 12 times…the next one starts January 20th and is for 6 weeks. People register at http://www.wholelifechallenge.com and then join a team. We had 100% of our teammates finish the last WLC. 🙂 We kind of have the support process dialed in after 12 WLC’s. No need to be a member of HHC…we have teammates who joined from around the world…quite fun and beneficial for all involved.
