Let me preface this post by saying I do not consider myself a food blogger, a food photographer, or a domestic goddess in the kitchen. In fact, I am quite the opposite & kind of lazy when it comes to cooking. It has to be SIMPLE with a minimal amount of ingredients or it gets overwhelming and I shut down all together. I know it sounds dramatic. When I left for college my parents were actually concerned with how I would survive…much to their surprise, I made it (cue: “look at me now”) 🎧
If this sound like you, then you are in the right place! I will only post meals from time to time that I truly find delicious, healthy-ish, and that are quick & easy to make! I made this burrito in about 5 min, rushing around with a baby staring at me…probably thinking, “what is she even doing?”
I have officially graduated from breakfast sandwiches to breakfast BURRITOS. When I find a clean, easy recipe I tend to wear it out – so right now I’m in a scrambled egg/salsa/avocado burrito phase. So yummy and filling! It’s an entire meal in one tortilla.
I don’t really count macros or calories, esp since I’m breastfeeding & exercising right now, and need to make sure I’m eating enough. My goal is to simply be choosing clean ingredients in what I am making, when I can. I do know that this burrito has around 30g of protein! If you are looking to cut out some calories or fats, you can remove the cheese, avocado, and/or tortilla for a simple egg scramble. I’m not a fan of giving up food groups – all in moderation.
