Who’s got two thumbs and a healthy breakfast all week? This lady right here. And not because I get up early every morning to make myself a carefully balanced nourishing meal.
Hahahaha. That’s a hot bucket o’ nope right there.
It’s because I’m a big, big fan of meal prepping for breakfast. I’m the textbook definition of “not a morning person”, so the early morning hours are not the time for me to get the job done. If I don’t set aside an hour over the weekend to either partially or fully prep a breakfast plan for the week, I typically power through the morning high on coffee and cheese. Delicious? Sure is. Nutritious? I’ll let you decide.
These breakfast bowls with eggs, roasted vegetables and pesto are on frequent rotation. Packed with protein and colorful vegetables, they’re a balanced, nutritious breakfast and couldn’t be easier to make.
How to Make These Meal Prep Breakfast Bowls
Let’s take all of the work out of a typical veggie scramble but keep all the flavor m’kay? Yes! Meal prep breakfast bowls with scrambled eggs, roasted vegetables, and drizzle of pesto are loaded with protein and tons of flavor. You’ll never be bored with breakfast again.
- First, roast a few sheet pans of colorful vegetables.
- Dice the vegetables into uniform sizes – about a 1″ dice.
- Group the vegetables based on cooking time, and spread them between two sheet pans. For this recipe, I grouped bell peppers and red onions onto one baking sheet (they need 20-25 minutes to roast) and zucchini and tomatoes onto another (they need about 10-12 minutes to roast).
- Drizzle each tray of vegetables with olive or avocado oil, toss to coat, then spread into a single layer. Season with salt and pepper.
- Transfer the tray with the peppers and onions into a 425°F oven and set a timer for 10 minutes.
- When the timer goes off, remove the tray and give the peppers and onions a good stir.
- Return them to the oven, along with the tray of zucchini and tomatoes. Set the timer for an additional 10 minutes.
- When the timer goes off, check for doneness. The peppers and onions are finished when they’re soft and have begun to caramelize around the edges. The zucchini and tomatoes are finished when the tomatoes start to burst and the zucchini start to brown.
- While the vegetables roast, whip up some pesto. This is a Whole30 dairy free pesto, but if you’re not adhering to any particular dietary restrictions, feel free to use your favorite pesto (homemade or store-bought).
- Place basil, toasted almonds, a crushed garlic clove, and salt into the bowl of a food processor.
- Pulse until the almonds are pulverized with the basil.
- Flip the motor to continuous and pour extra virgin olive oil through the feed tube. Process until the pesto is smooth, adding more olive oil if needed to reach your preferred consistency.
- Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt or pepper if needed.
- Compose your plate (if serving immediately) or prepare your meal prep bowls.
- Divide two scrambled eggs per container. Top with one quarter of the roasted vegetables, then drizzle with pesto to taste (I used about two tablespoons per serving).
- I use these glass pyrex snapware containers for all of my meal prep and leftovers. They’re incredibly durable (I have kids, they need to be!), the lids fit snugly, and they don’t get too hot when you microwave them. Fully endorse.

Return both baking sheets to the oven and roast all of the vegetables an additional 10-12 minutes, checking for doneness at the 10-minute mark. Remove from the oven once the onions and peppers are bite tender and slightly charred, the cherry tomatoes are just starting to burst, and the zucchini starts to brown.
- Make the pesto. Place the almonds into a small skillet over a medium flame. Toast, stirring frequently, until the almonds are lightly browned and fragrant.
