My Jump-Start Your Day Breakfast Burritos are a hearty and nutritious meal to jump-start your day and set you on the right path for healthy eating all day long. And the best part is that if you’re not a morning person, you can prepare a whole batch of them ahead of time and freeze them. Then when you want to eat one, you just unwrap, pop it in the microwave and take it to go!
Each of my breakfast burritos includes 2 egg whites but only 1 yolk to give you a good amount of protein without too much cholesterol. I also use sautéed vegetables including nutrient-packed red bell peppers, which are an excellent source of Vitamin C and also contain high levels of Vitamins A, E, K and B-complex vitamins as well as the antioxidant lycopene. For an extra boost of protein and fiber, I also include nutritious black beans. For added flavor I top the eggs with a small amount of reduced fat cheese and salsa, which is a great nutritious, low calorie condiment. If you like extra spice, pour on some of your favorite hot sauce before you wrap it up.
