Freezer breakfast burritos
My other passion: healthy freezer burritos. This tasty assemblage of vegan breakfast burritos features globally inspired by recipes from Thailand, the Middle East, Italy, India, and South America!

All it takes is roasting some vegetables and beans (toss with oil and spices and walk away!), mix them with a finger-licking, homemade sauce that comes together in less than 3 minutes, and wrap them up in grain-free or whole wheat tortillas and store them in the freezer until meal time! These burrito recipes are all either vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or grain free (depending on your tortilla choice), dairy free, or all of the above.
Grain-Free Breakfast Breads & Loaves
We cover the crowd-favorites like a Healthy Starbucks Coffee Cake, but then venture into some real whimsical recipes you’ve probably never imagined, like a grain free Brownie Batter Banana Bread!

Healthy Egg Breakfasts
Eggs are a great choice for a high-protein, vegetarian breakfast. And savory breakfast ideas are also a great way to pack in TONS of veggies before your day even starts. Just make sure your eggs are pasture-raised and organic, so you can get maximum health benefits.
