I know we all get caught up with life, but that’s no excuse to skip the most important meal of the day! Here are 3 top reasons you shouldn’t miss it:

3. Heat a large skillet and spray with olive oil on medium heat. When skillet is warm add mixed eggs/egg whites. As the eggs are cooking, add chopped veggies, salt, and pepper. Meanwhile, heat tortillas. When the eggs look mostly cooked, turn off heat and continue to toss (overcooked eggs do not taste good).

I am going to give this a try. I have tried to eat breakfast burritos in the morning but for some reason I have yet to find a good combo of flavors. Will let you know how it works out.

PS
Good luck in SF!
