Healthy Breakfast Burritos to the rescue!
Need a new fast healthy morning mealtime suggestion to break out of a rut? Take a look at this easy idea from my sister, Gail – healthy breakfast burritos full of protein, veggies, and good fats – what a great start to give your kids in the morning! (Find more here: 10 Healthy Breakfast Ideas. While you're at it, here are some Healthy Lunch Ideas and Healthy Snack Ideas.)
Healthy Breakfast Burritos
- Soft tortilla shells -- make sure they don't have trans fats or a ton of preservatives OR make your own!
- Scrambled Egg -- eggs are so good for you
- Veggies of choice local and organic are best -- try different colored peppers, onions fried 'til golden, also avocado or guacamole is delicious in these.
- Optional: Ham sausage, steak, or bacon -- here's where to find safe, healthy meat
- Cheese raw or all-natural cheese is best, no velveeta or processed “American” cheese slices!)
- Stir fry meat and veggies in butter to heat them up (not the avocado yet), scramble in the egg, top with cheese until melted then put in a warm tortilla shell along with the avocado/guacamole if desired. Serve with salsa. (Also, you could fry your tortilla in butter to give it a nice crispy shell before melting the cheese on it and adding the other ingredients.)

How can these be healthy when everything is fried in butter?!
That’s one of the reasons it IS so healthy, our bodies *need* healthy fats. Have you seen the posts here: https://kellythekitchenkop.com/2008/08/healthy-fats-oils.html ?

Lately I’ve been craving the old time comfort breakfast of oatmeal, with lotsa butta, raw milk and a touch of maple syrup!
Any ideas for some gluten free tortillas? Would love to try these but have gluten sensitivity and also corn.
I searched online for “Gluten free tortillas” and there were quite a few hits!
Cooked and diced potatoes and yams are tasty in breakfast burritos, too.
I love the idea of fried rice for breakfast, because you can add (& hide:) so many goodies in there. Butter, or even better bacon dripping, with fried eggs, shallots, cooked chopped vegies, bits of leftover meat, are all fair game for fried rice!

I’m not too sure about using Kelloggs cereals in recipes – they are full of not-so-good ingredients. Which recipe were you looking at there?

That sounds delicious! It reminds me of a breakfast my Mom used to make, which I loved and should try myself. She would cook rice and then stir-fry it gently in butter, and add scrambled eggs and diced ham. Super breakfast, and a great way to use leftover rice, which she usually did.
We love breakfast burritos! We’re having some tomorrow for dinner actually. 😀
I think pork is fine, and like anything eat in moderation. But than again we raise hogs, so of course I like it. 🙂 We are very careful what we feed our hogs. The are what they eat, to a sense. If they are fed junk it will effect the meat. We are also careful about what type of hogs we raise that also makes a difference. Our pork has very little fat. We ate very little pork until we started raising hogs. I think finding a good source it what is important. We love breakfast burritos. I make up a large batch of eggs and meat and freeze it in ziplock bags. I can than take it out and we use it on tortillas. It saves time to do it this way.

I have also heard that same concern from some in the past, yet others (Weston A. Price Foundation) say it is healthy as long as you only eat pork from a farm where the pigs are raised out on pasture and not fed any junk.
Personally, we do not eat it a lot, only now and then, and only pastured pork.
I’d love to hear from others on this topic, too.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
You should really rethink any pork products including lard and bacon , it is very BAD, never meant for human consumption, no matter how you burn it it doesn’t kill all the bugs in pork. Not only does God tell us in the Bible not to eat it lots of nutritionists say that as well, even Kevin Treudau.
I do love your newsletter and all your information keep up the good work. Thank you Jodell
