As a busy working mom, mornings are some of the most stressful times of day. Between getting ready, getting my daughter ready, feeding our pets, feeding the kid and getting to work on time.. My own breakfast was often sacrificed for the sake of saving a few minutes. I found the perfect solution for my family in meal prepped breakfast burritos! Every Sunday I spend a couple hours making a big batch of breakfast burritos and wrapping them all up for an easy, hearty, and healthy breakfast for myself and my husband in the mornings.
