This simple recipe ticks a few of the big-ticket items – they’re freezable, you can easily make bulk without any extra effort, they’re filling and will keep you fuller for longer, and they’re delicious. Eggs and veggies offer the protein and fibre you need to fill you up. Use whatever green veggies you have to use up in the fridge to get ahead of your veggie count for the day without a hassle.
Perfect for breakfast-on-the-go, a healthy lunch for school, or even a last-minute midweek meal with a side salad.
