Breakfast Burritto Recipe

Yesterday was once again a free day. They keep coming around so quickly that I can’t believe it, but I suppose that’s a good thing. If I hated what I was eating on my “diet” days, then free day would take forever to show up.

This was by far the “healthiest” free day we’ve had so far and I had the best reaction to a free day so far–I wasn’t sluggish or crabby or anything. Here’s what we had: breakfast burritos, 1 Jacks pizza for lunch (it fed all four of us easily!), 1 Wal-mart’s Take and Bake chocolate chip cookie package (which is actually six cookies), Jared had cheese and crackers for a snack (with a normal serving size, no extra for it being free day), we had popcorn for a late afternoon snack, Skinny Cow ice cream (the four of us ate a total of two 100 calorie caramel something or others), and some hot dogs. I admit it still wasn’t healthy, but it also wasn’t an exorbitant amount of calories. It’s exciting and it gives me hope that we will very soon be down to a free “meal” plus one dessert on free day, and then maybe not long after that we won’t need a free day at all.

I did want to share with you the breakfast burrito that Jared made for me, because it was super good.

Breakfast Burrito:
2-3 eggs, scrambled
sliced onion
a sprinkling of bacon bits
shredded cheddar cheese
whole wheat tortillas
sour cream
jalapenos, to taste

Make the scrambled eggs as you normally would, including the onions and the bacon bits. Add the shredded cheese and let it melt. Meanwhile, spread some sour cream on your tortilla. When the scrambled egg mixture is done, place it on top of the tortilla, top with jalapenos, wrap and enjoy!

To my readers: What do you like to add to your scrambled eggs?

  1. That looks awesome. When I have leftover potatoes I toss those in too!

    • Thanks! It was really good. We’ve done scrambled eggs with potatoes in them before, but I don’t think I’ve ever done it when I turn the eggs into a breakfast burrito. We may have to try that the next free day. 🙂
