If there’s one thing I’ve gained from my excessive use of Instagram, it’s an extreme appreciation for breakfast #EEEEEATS. If you’re waking up each morning to take on your #CHAARGBOOTYCAMP routine, fueling before #CHAARG6AMCLUB [or #anyAMCLUB] workout is essential. ++ if you’re like me, you don’t want to give up any more sleep before working out than you absolutely have to .
Meal planning + prepping is a great way to save yourself time in the mornings. If you take some time on a Sunday or Monday + start your week by planning ahead, you’re setting yourself up for an easier morning + earning a few extra minutes of beauty sleep. Who wouldn’t want that, right?
So, to give you little inspiration we’re sharing a perfect prepare ahead breakfast recipe. These muffins are simple + super customizable — packing them with different varieties of protein + veggies will give you a solid foundation for your workout + the rest of your morning. Have suggestions for delicious combination? Share your #CHAARGeats with us on Instagram : ).

A dozen eggs
1 large Sweet Potato
2 small Bell Peppers
1 small Yellow Onion
1 Chicken Sausage Link [we love Trader Joe’s Spicy Jalapeño]
1 bag Fresh Spinach
Salt + Pepper, + other seasonings to taste
1] Pre-heat oven to 400 + line a baking sheet. Give you veggies a rinse + get started on chopping. Finely chopping your veggies may seem like a lot of extra work, but it’ll keep your muffins in one piece when you pack them to-go! Sauté sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, + desired seasoning in olive oil until slightly softened [about 10 minutes]. Transfer to lined baking sheet + roast for 15-20 minutes, or until tender.
3] Remove vegetables + allow 5-10 minutes to cool. While cooling, crack your eggs into a large bowl + whisk until scrambled. Add the cooled roasted vegetables, spinach, sausage, + uncooked chopped tomatoes to the eggs + mix. Spray muffin tin liberally with cooking spray + fill with the egg mixture.
