Quinoa Egg White Breakfast Wrap
Starting my mornings off with a delicious healthy breakfast is always a MUST for me and there really are so many ways you can spice up your morning routine if you are sick of eating the same old thing every day. These Quinoa Egg White Breakfast Wraps are super easy to make, are packed with tons of protein and taste super flavorful!
They are also perfect to grab on-the-go! We know how busy mornings can be so having something simple you can make and take with you in the car is often times such a lifesaver. Plus you’ll be feeling perfectly full and satisfied through the afternoon and can even enjoy any of the leftover quinoa for lunch. Trust me, it’s THAT good! Starting your morning with a high protein breakfast not only boosts your metabolism, but will definitely keep you energized throughout the day. And if you love your morning workouts like I do then you’ll sure thank me for this recipe – this makes a great post-workout meal!
AllWhites® 100% Liquid Egg Whites make it so easy and convenient to enjoy a healthy morning breakfast. AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites are naturally fat-free, cholesterol-free and make the perfect low-calorie alternative to regular eggs. Plain old scrambled egg whites can get pretty boring if made all the time, but throwing them in a whole wheat wrap with veggies and quinoa really makes this recipe a winner! I mean breakfast is the most important meal of the day so you want to make sure it tastes good!
You can also use AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites in a wide variety of ways since they are pasteurized for safety and are actually safer than traditional whole eggs. Try using them uncooked in salad dressings, shakes, smoothies and desserts (tiramisu anyone?!) without worrying about food borne illnesses. You could also use these egg whites to make casseroles, homemade mayo, and desserts like macaroons!
But back to these wraps! You guys will seriously love all the delicious ingredients like cumin, salsa, cilantro and avocado that are just perfect for spicing up the quinoa and egg whites. These are some of my favorite flavor combinations and they really give a fun Mexican flare to the whole wrap (or burrito as some might call it!)
To make the quinoa, I simply cooked it per the package instructions then added cumin, salsa and chopped cilantro for added flavor. The egg whites I scrambled over medium heat along with a pinch of salt and pepper, but you could also just let them cook uniformly in the skillet making them easier to wrap up. You should definitely make this recipe to your liking! Then using a whole wheat wrap, I combined a handful of spinach leaves, quinoa, scrambled egg whites along with some shredded cheese and avocado which is completely optional yet highly recommended.
Mmm is your mouth watering yet??
The other great thing about these wraps is that you can really make these all your own! Use your favorite jarred salsa to mix in with the quinoa – some fun ideas could be black bean corn salsa, roasted chipotle salsa or you could even make your own. For these wraps I simply used my favorite chunky salsa with medium heat as I didn’t want them too spicy and just loved all the flavors it had, especially when combined with the cumin and cilantro.
I really hope you all enjoy these healthy breakfast wraps as much as we did and don’t forget to scroll down below and enter to win your very own Caphalon Non Stick 12″ Omelet Pan!
