Every meal prepper needs a go-to casserole. Learning how to use casseroles in my #Sundaymealprep routine was a game changer. While many do involve in bit of prep work upfront, once everything is together they go in the oven and come out ready to go. For those trying to lose weight, casseroles are a great way to pack nutrients into a low-calorie meal that you can portion out ahead of time. This Mexican style casserole is one of my fav’s because it can be customized depending on your taste preferences and energy (calorie) needs. For example: Use 12 eggs instead of 8 eggs and egg whites
Try hot salsa if you like spice
Avocado lovers can top with avocado and cheese lovers in the family can have whatever variety they enjoy
One meal, so many options!
