 This post has been created in partnership with the American Egg Board. All opinions are my own.

In our house, mornings are hectic. Trying to get out the door with a toddler and a baby in tow, while trying to look at least halfway presentable, can be daunting. Making sure everyone eats a nutritious breakfast before we head out can be even more of a challenge. That’s why I almost always rely on make-ahead breakfast options we can have to grab-and-go on busy mornings. Eating a balanced breakfast sets the stage for the rest of the day, which is why my morning goal is to help each of us eat a breakfast that contains a good source of protein along with at least on serving of vegetable or fruit. That sounds simple enough, right? I wish it were that easy, but finding options everyone agrees on can be hard. And when we are almost always running late in the morning anyway, dealing with food battles is something I would like to avoid.

Although our house can be divided over certain food choices, one thing we all agree on is our love of eggs. This is why I was so excited to partner with the American Egg Board to bring this post and recipe to you. As one of my household food staples, I make sure we are always stocked up on eggs since not only are they incredibly versatile – but they are also packed full of nutrition. One large egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and nine essential amino acids all for 70 calories. They are also one of the most affordable sources of high-quality protein. As a mom of two young boys who never stop eating, I am quickly learning how important this is to my grocery bill.

If you are thinking about adding eggs to your family’s meal plan, make sure you include the whole egg. Years ago, I used to be an egg-white only fanatic, being fearful of the cholesterol the yolk contained. I know a lot of people who still feel the same way. But research shows eating the full egg is beneficial to your health and you no longer need to skip the yolk. The yolk actually contains most of the egg’s nutrients like choline (which is important for fetal brain development and maintaining optimal brain function later in life), vitamin B12, selenium and more than 40 percent of the protein in an egg. Research also shows that consumption of one egg per day is fine for most healthy people and does not result in significant changes in cholesterol levels. In fact, a study published in The Journal of Nutrition suggests that eating eggs can favorably affect markers of health, such as increased blood levels of antioxidants and HDL (“good” cholesterol”) levels.

Although eggs can be enjoyed in a number of ways, I highly recommend pairing them with vegetables. This combination can be a great way to increase your intake of fiber as well as help you to increase your vegetable consumption each day. That’s why I love to make these simple On-the-Go Egg Burritos for busy days. The combination of egg and vegetables is the perfect way to make sure every member of my family packs in high-quality protein and antioxidants to provide a balanced meal that will help them tackle the busy day.

These egg burritos are so simple and take only a few minutes to make. I love to let my boys get involved so that they can select the vegetable combination they want to add (which helps to make sure they will actually eat it).

To make your egg breakfast burrito, top the whole grain tortilla with scrambled eggs, veggies of your choice, and shredded cheese

I typically create a batch of these on Sunday so that we each have a grab-and-go breakfast or snack set and ready for the whole week. After the batch has been made, I just wrap them in wax paper, store in the refrigerator, and microwave before running out the door. These don’t have to be just for breakfast either. This burrito recipe can also be a great option for a quick lunch or even a dinner. In our house, we love eggs at every meal, so this recipe gets utilized for a variety of meal options all week long.
