5 Easy Breakfast Ideas that are Delicious and Nutritious

June 26, 2021

Weekday mornings can feel hectic – getting ready, making breakfast, sitting down to eat, packing everyone up for work, school, or summertime adventures – no wonder we often reach for an easy breakfast that may be less than nutritious. If you’re looking for fast breakfast ideas that are also healthy, then try these grab-and-go favorites using our Mission Better For You products. You’ll start the day off right knowing that you’ve sent your family with delicious and nutritious breakfast offerings every day of the week.

Vegetarian Breakfast Grains Salad Burrito

Starting your day with filling, hearty whole grains is a great way to make sure that you stay full until lunchtime. This healthy take on a breakfast burrito uses quinoa and buckwheat, two grains that are packed with protein and nutrients. Warm those grains along with some kale, then add egg whites, blueberries, and feta cheese. Warm some of our delicious Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps, then assemble everything inside and roll up for an on-to-go breakfast. The combination of salty, sweet, and rich will leave you feeling satisfied as you head out the door.

Almond Butter and Orange Marmalade Quesadillas

If you always crave something sweet in the morning, try this healthier alternative to pancakes and waffles. These quesadillas combine protein-rich almond butter with tangy orange marmalade to give you a fast breakfast idea that’s delicious and nutritious. Start with our Organic Uncooked Flour Tortillas and follow the instructions for cooking one side of each. Then layer almond butter, orange marmalade, and some sliced almonds on the cooked side and fold up. Cook the remaining sides quickly, then grab and go! This healthier breakfast recipe will become a staple in no time.

Cauliflower Rice Breakfast Burritos

Are you looking for an easy breakfast recipe that packs a protein and veggie punch? These cauliflower rice breakfast burritos are just the ticket – our Protein Tortilla Wraps filled with cauliflower rice, eggs, avocado, and cheese are the perfect grab and go breakfast for busy summertime mornings. Make sure to cook the cauliflower rice until just barely tender so that it adds a nice texture to the burrito, and warm the tortillas first to help melt the cheese and make everything blend together perfectly!

Sausage Breakfast Burritos

If you’re a “classic” breakfast burrito fan (but want to make sure that you’re starting your mornings with healthier recipes) then try this version of a sausage burrito. Using our Whole Wheat + Chia & Quinoa Tortilla Wraps means that you’re getting extra protein and fiber from your tortilla. Make another healthy choice by using chicken breakfast sausage rather than pork. After the sausage is cooked, scramble it with eggs, then place in your warmed tortillas and top with cheese. Roll these up tightly for an easy breakfast that the whole family will grab as they head out the door for a fun-filled day!

Red Pepper and Spinach Scramble Wraps

For a colorful and scrumptious breakfast that’s easy to make and full of healthy ingredients, try this red pepper and spinach scramble wrap. Start by warming some oil and then sautéing your spinach until it begins to wilt, then add your egg mixture and begin scrambling. After a minute or two, top with roasted red peppers (roast your own or make the recipe even easier by getting them pre-roasted in a jar!) and feta cheese, then cook a few more minutes to heat and combine. Place everything in a delicious, warm Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortilla to have a fluffy wrap that’s lower in net carbs than a traditional flour tortilla. This is a great way to start your morning off right, and because it’s so easy to make and pack up, you’ll soon find that this is one of your favorite breakfast choices.
