This delicious and healthy meal-prepped breakfast option serves up protein and healthy greens in a super-convenient package. Make the full batch ahead of time, cut into portions, and pop in the fridge so you can have a grab-and-go breakfast that’s way better than a granola bar. Not a fan of asparagus? You can substitute any dark green vegetable in its place. (And if you don’t like eggs, try these high-protein breakfasts that don’t have eggs.)
