These Beef & Spinach Breakfast Burritos are an excellent choice to start your day off with a lean protein-packed meal to leave you satisfied for hours!
I am typically a cereal-type of breakfast eater, except on the weekends. On weekends that we’re not rushing out of the house for an activity, my family loves to eat scrambled cheese eggs. Typically I add any vegetables we have that are left over from the week, but this time I added a bit more than just veggies!
As you can tell I love cooking with lean ground beef because it’s so simple to cook and is a fantastic protein source for the entire family. I simply sautéed onions and peppers and added ground beef. Once cooked, I removed the beef and veggie combo and added eggs, cheese and spinach to the pan. After the eggs were cooked I added it all to whole wheat tortillas. That’s it!
Eating ground beef for breakfast may not be the norm, but it’s definitely something to try! Feel free to change up the seasonings to your preference and even swap the cheddar cheese with your favorite type of cheese. Not only is this meal high in protein but also high in fiber when you add veggies and whole wheat tortillas. A serving (3 ounces) of lean ground beef contains about 22 grams of protein. This is a fantastic start to the day since protein helps to keep you satisfied longer than just eating grains, so you’ll be less likely to want to snack soon after you’ve eaten breakfast.
