“Breakfast burrito” has a whole new meaning today! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the traditional breakfast burritos that are loaded with scrambled eggs, cheese, beans, chorizo and salsa (or some variation of that) – I think I could eat it every morning and never get sick of it. But I guess we have to eat healthily sometimes. This breakfast burrito is just a whole bunch of your favorite fruit and some yogurt rolled up into a nice little package.
All you need is some fruit, yogurt, and some sort of wrap (tortilla, flatbread, naan, a huge pancake…anything).
Prepare whatever fruit you have on hand by peeling and slicing them relatively thinly. I made this breakfast burrito right after I went to the grocery store, so I had a ton of different kinds of fruit. I used a banana, white peach, kiwi, mango, strawberry, and avocado. You can use whatever you have, and don’t feel like you need 8 different types of fruit. If you just have bananas and strawberries, just put those in it.
Lay your wrap out on a working surface and spread a little yogurt on it, being careful not to extend it all the way to the edges – this is to avoid yogurt oozing out the sides and edges when you roll it up. I used plain greek yogurt, but you can use whatever yogurt you like.
Arrange your fruit on the yogurt, and roll it up. That’s it! Because my yogurt was unsweetened, I drizzled a little honey over the fruit before I rolled it up.
I ate my breakfast burrito with an extra serving of yogurt on the side because I know my stomach, and I know that it would not be happy with me by the time lunchtime rolled around.
I suggest serving/eating this right away. Because there’s yogurt in contact with the wrap/tortilla, if you leave it overnight, the wrap may get soggy. The soggy wrap will not taste as good, and may cause breakage and fruit leakage- neither are good things. You can get everything prepared in advanced, and just assemble in the morning.
My favorite thing to wear is shorts with a long sleeve top. I guess it’s weird though? If it’s hot out, people ask me “aren’t you hot?”, and if it’s a bit chillier, they ask “aren’t your legs cold?”. For me, it’s the perfect balance of coverage and temperature control. Also, shorts are the best because let’s face it, jeans kind of suck…they’re tight and restricting, and they limit the amount of food you can eat. I’ll be in shorts as long as I can possibly stand it (shorts + boots = fall attire…more on that coming soon). If you’re going to wear shorts, don’t feel like you have to wear a tank top to go for the “summery” look. Try pairing it with a long sleeve top or blouse next time! And add a hat if you want- hats make all outfits better!
