Benefits of Taking Proteins in Breakfast

Before jumping into the recipe, let us first see the many benefits of including protein in your breakfast routine, especially if you want to lose weight or build muscle. Protein aids in maintaining a feeling of fullness and satisfaction after eating and can help regulate blood sugar levels. 

Consuming protein during the essential meal of the day, that is breakfast, can help kickstart your metabolism and keep you feeling full and satisfied all through the day. It is also an essential nutrient for building and maintaining muscle mass. 

Including protein in your morning meals can help you reach your fitness goals more quickly and effectively. If you are trying to cut down calories to lose weight, incorporating protein into your breakfast routine can help you achieve your goals more effectively. 

Protein helps regulate blood sugar levels, keeping you feeling energetic and preventing cravings for unhealthy snacks later in the day. If you are working out regularly, eating a protein-rich breakfast can help you see results more quickly by aiding in muscle recovery and growth. 

With tons of protein benefits, adding DMoose whey protein powder to your diet is recommended. The digestive enzymes in this whey protein powder help better digestion and absorption of proteins. The enzymes work in three ways to break up proteins into small pieces that are easier for the body to digest. This helps your body use each serving of whey protein more effectively.

In addition, Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) that your body can't make by itself should be included in your everyday diet. You have to get them from the food you eat daily or take supplements. DMoose EAAs help keep muscles from breaking down during intense exercise and help damaged muscles heal and stay healthy.

So, without further ado, let us jump into the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 1 bell pepper sliced
  • 16 ounces of ground chicken
  • 16 ounces ground hot breakfast sausage
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 large eggs
  • 12 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 12 8" tortillas

Instructions

  • In a sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. After the onion and pepper have softened, add them to the pan and cook until they're lightly browned and the onions are translucent around 3-4 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside. 
  • In a mixing bowl, combine ground chicken and sausage with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Brown the bottom side for 3-4 minutes before stirring to get a nice crust on it. Cook for another few minutes, or until the meat is fully cooked.
  • In a mixing glass, whisk the eggs until smooth. In a preheated nonstick pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil, cook the eggs over medium heat. Pour in the eggs and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until they are almost done. Remove it from the heat and allow the pan to cool. 
  • On top of 12 squares of foil, lay out 12 tortillas. Stick one slice of cheese in the middle of each tortilla. Then, evenly distribute vegetables, meat, and eggs among the tortillas. You can top it with salsa, guacamole or any of your favourite sauces. Wrap each burrito in foil tightly.
  • You can enjoy these burritos fresh or even freeze them in a gallon freezer bag until ready to defrost and reheat.

Instructions to Reheat 

Stovetop - To reheat, wrap the burrito in a cloth and microwave it on low for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Toast over medium heat with a drop of olive oil in the pan. When heated, add the burrito and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until browned and crispy.

Microwave - Reheat thawed or frozen burrito in a damp paper towel for 1-2 minutes or until warmed through.

Toaster oven/oven - Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 10-15 minutes if the burrito is thawed or 15-20 minutes if it's frozen. To warm up, add extra time as needed.
