Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes it can be the hardest to squeeze in. We tend to fall into a breakfast rut, eating the same foods over and over. Sometimes it’s because we prefer sleep over preparing breakfast, or because we are rushing out the door and need something easy to eat on the go. Regardless, you need breakfast as fuel for the day.
Mary Bennett, Registered Dietitian and Diabetic Education Manager, shares a favorite go-to recipe for a breakfast on the go that’s both high in protein and low in fat. Mary’s breakfast burritos freeze well and can be defrosted by wrapping them in a paper towel and microwaving at 50% power for 3 minutes.
