Full recipe in video below!
8 strips of raw turkey or center cut bacon
4 whole eggs
8 Butterhead or Bibb lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry
1 large avocado, cut into 4 quarters
2 small roma tomatoes, cut lengthwise into long slices
Serve with (all optional): Laughing Cow cheese wedge, mayo, an additional hard-boiled egg, baby carrots, cashews, almonds, or any diet-specific sides you wish.
To cook bacon:
Line a rimmed half sheet pan (affiliate link!) with parchment paper. Place the strips of bacon on the parchment paper in a single layer. Place the pan into a cold oven and immediately set the temperature to 375F. Set a timer for the cook time depending on the thickness of the bacon. Thinner bacon will take 18-23 minutes. Thicker bacon will take 24-28 minutes. See the full post on How to Cook Bacon in the Oven for more detailed instructions.
Let cool completely before placing into meal prep containers.
To cook eggs: If you have a favorite method to cook hard-boiled eggs, feel free to use that. Here are two ways to cook them:
Instant Pot method: Place eggs onto the trivet inside the Instant Pot insert. Add 1 cup of water, and close the lid with the vent sealed. Set the pot to manual high pressure for 5 minutes, then let it do a natural pressure release for 4-5 minutes. Release pressure and as safely and quickly as possible, place the eggs under cold water until cool to the touch, and then peel.
Stovetop method: Here are instructions explaining how to make hard-boiled eggs on the stove way better than I ever could.
Each meal prep has ingredients for 2 lettuce wraps. Place 2 leaves of lettuce into each meal prep container. Pick large leaves with no rips that would make a good wrap.
Add avocado and tomato to your meal prep container – I keep the tomato separate so the juice doesn’t make other ingredients soggy in the fridge. Slice each quarter of avocado into two slices.
Slice each hard-boiled egg into 4 slices and add to meal prep container. Break each piece of bacon in half (so they fit into the containers) and add 2 whole slices to each container (4 half pieces each).
Add diet specific sides – carrots, nuts, fruit, mayo or ranch, crackers, cheese, etc.
Store in the refrigerator in an sealed container and enjoy within 4 days.
