of the biggest obstacles that people say when it comes to eating breakfast is that they don't have time. so..." s- "that usually can be the case, right?" w- "we are making breakfast burritos that actually you can make all at one time and then throw in your freezer, so that way when it's time to head out the door for work during the week, you just pop it in the microwave for about two minutes, um, and then you're ready to go." s- "so i don't have an excuse." w- "you don't have an excuse, and if you're one of those people like me, you u n't want st a granola bar or a piece of fruit, you want something a little more satisfying, you really don't have an excuse, so these are so easy to make. i'm sure you guys can probably guess how i'm going to assemble this, but i'm going to show you anyway. so i have gone ahead and scrambled a dozen eggs, you can use something like these all whites if you want, you can separate the eggs and use egg whites..if you-" s- "or mix it too?" w- "if you want, you can go half and half. there is a lot of the egg protein in the yolk, and that's where most of the vitamimi and minerals are, so i personally do like to eat the yolk. so, whatever works for you. and i am using this mission multigrain tortilla, you want to make sure you're using a whole wheat tortilla, and i like
