Healthy Breakfast Burrito

This colorful and healthy breakfast burrito is stuffed with goodies – such as eggs, tomato, shrimps, avocado and cheese. They’re also packed with nutrition, offering a bit of carbs, fat, vitamins, and protein. This recipe is perfect for a weekend brunch, packing for lunch, a light dinner, and also great for cooking for a crowd.

It’s so easy to chop the veggies in big batches and assemble the wraps ahead of time. You can use cherry tomatoes instead of normal sized tomatoes, so the tortillas won’t get soggy. Also, drizzling lime juice on top of the avocado will prevent it from turning brown. You can serve the wrap cold or lightly grill it before serving. It tastes great both ways!

I originally found this idea for the breakfast veggie wrap at Amy’s site, and have made them so many times. I sometimes changed the filling to scrabbled eggs or added sauteed sausage and pepper. All the versions turned out great, because of the magic combination of fresh tomato and avocado. During the holiday season, I usually make a fancier version, by adding boiled shrimp or roasted chicken. For a paired drink, if you’re tired of orange juice, try out this easy champagne cocktail and enjoy a long and lazy holiday brunch!
