Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You hear that term again and again yet so many of us skip it. I used to be one of those girls, a breakfast skipper. Coffee is all I would have for my morning fuel yet I would still feel so tired. Why? Because I wasn’t giving my body what it needed, real food.
Soon I became tired of being tired and I decided to change my bad habit. Having breakfast not only gives me energy but really prepares me for the whole day. One of my favorite proteins to consume in the a.m. are eggs. Not just any eggs but Eggland’s Best eggs.
Eggland’s Best (EB) eggs are full of added nutrients. They have 10X more vitamin E, 25% less saturated fat, and 6X more vitamin D than ordinary eggs. This is because EB hens are fed with superior feed that is vegetarian and contains no animal by-products. You can read all about how they compare to ordinary eggs here.
Now that you’ve heard some of the perk to choosing Eggland’s Best eggs, let’s get to cooking them up in a yummy recipe.
Spicy EB Egg Breakfast Burrito
Adding spices and peppers to your morning meal can really help jumpstart your metabolism and increase satiety making you feel fuller faster. My favorite ingredients to add some spice are red pepper flakes and jalapeños. I use them in everything because they have so much flavor and spice.
This spicy EB egg breakfast burrito is the perfect morning meal. It is high in protein, nutrients, and has great flavor to it. You can prepare the burrito mix before hand for the week to save time. All you need is to warm up some whole wheat tortillas and you’ll have a delicious breakfast burrito.
