Guys, we gotta talk about meal prep. If you haven’t done it yet, don’t freak out and leave just yet. Meal prep is a lifesaver, especially for college students. If you’re like me and are on campus all day, you know you need healthy, protein-packed options, so you don’t feel like you have to go back for thirds or fourths at the dining hall to feel full. Read: these spicy sweet potato egg muffins are about to become your best friend.

These bad boys also contain tons of flavor without a lot of ingredients (AKA: they're easy on the budget.) However, picking the right brand is the real key to getting the best flavor. I’m personally into choosing Handsome Brook Farm because they don’t use eggs from big factories. Instead, they focus on creating a network of small, family-owned organic farms, which I can get behind.

Additionally, Handsome Brook is all about pasture-raised eggs, which means that instead of the chickens being cooped up in cages, they have over 100 square feet of roaming space. Buying pasture-raised eggs is truly the best option, not only for you, but also for the animals.

Now, let’s get to those spicy sweet potato egg muffins.

You honestly can’t go wrong with this sweet potato/egg hybrid, and using Handsome Brook Farm eggs makes it even better. Feel free to be inspired and switch out ingredients to make your own spicy sweet potato egg muffin combos. I personally love adding ALL the veggies, and honestly, any combination is a winner. You should also try adding some feta or goat cheese for a rich melt-in-your-mouth flavor, or sub sweet potatoes for russet potatoes. Really, the possibilities are endless.

And don't forget, they keep well in Tupperware, which means you can carry them on campus all day for a quick snack or library fuel, and not worry about them going bad.
