Enjoying a healthy breakfast has always been a great way to get your day off on the right foot. Breakfast can help to hold you over until lunchtime and prevent snacking in between meals. However, sometimes people end up skipping because they don’t have any good breakfast ideas.

No worries—we’ve got you covered, there. A great morning option is the breakfast burrito, as it can be packed with a lot of nutritional goodness and even taken on the go. But rather than choosing an unhealthy and processed breakfast burrito from the local drive-thru, consider whipping up your own.

In fact, you can plan ahead by whipping up some of these burritos, wrapping them in foil and then popping them in the freezer. Then, you’ll merely have to warm them back up in the microwave or oven when you’re ready. It’s a great way to save time on those busy mornings.

Here are five of our favorite healthy breakfast burrito recipes.
