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 and exquisitely crafted warm and nourishing meal.
Hahahahahahahah. That’s a hot bucket o’ nope right there.
It’s because I’m a big, big fan of meal prepping for breakfast. As much as I love cooking, I am 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? Um, yeah. Nutritious? I’ll let you decide.
This veggie scramble with dairy free pesto is one of my favorite meal prep bowls. It’s packed with protein, incredibly nutrient dense, and couldn’t be easier to make.

This recipe couldn’t be easier to prep, and it comes together in just about 45 minutes. Ready for the rundown? Let’s do this healthy thing:

PS – 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.
Roasted Vegetables for Pesto Breakfast Bowls
Roasting veggies is pretty straightforward, but here are my best tips for making them perfectly for a meal prep bowl:
Dice the veggies into a uniform size, then toss with olive oil, salt, and a pepper in a mixing bowl so they’re uniformly coated with fat and seasoning.
Spread the vegetables onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to prevent them from sticking to the pan. Leave a little space in-between so they can can properly caramelize.
Group the vegetables based on cooking time, and spread them between two sheet pans. For this recipe, I spread the onions and peppers onto one baking sheet (they need about 25 minutes to roast) and the zucchini and tomatoes onto another (they need about 12 minutes to roast).
Undercook by a few minutes!
Roast the vegetables until they’re just barely crisp tender. You’re going to be reheating them for about a minute in the microwave, so if you cook them fully now, they’ll be on the soggier side when you reheat them.
Lastly, give them another layer of depth and flavor by seasoning with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice after they come out of the oven.
Protein Packed Pesto Sauce
Sauce is boss in my world, and this veggie scramble is no exception.
I finish off these egg and veggie meal prep bowls with a drizzle of dairy free pesto. I made this pesto with almonds for an extra kick of protein and healthy fats.
To make the pesto, put some almonds, fresh basil, a clove of garlic, and some salt and pepper into a food processor. Pulse until the herbs and nuts are pulverized, then pour in some extra virgin olive oil through the feed tube while the motor is running until the pesto comes together.
Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmm. Yummy!
