Aimee Fortney's Easy Breakfasts On the Go

Posted: Updated:

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and there is no need to rush out the door and run through the drive-thru on busy mornings!

AIMEE'S BREAKFAST PROTEIN DRINK

Use any of the frozen fruit you have on hand. Keeps the protein drink creamy, tasty and thick, like a milkshake! As I always say, "Fruit won't dilute!"

  • 1 cup Cabot Greek yogurt (16 grams of protein in 1 cup!)
  • 1 1/2 cups Very Vanilla Silk soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 frozen bananas

Blend Greek yogurt, soy milk, honey and bananas in the blender. Pour into your glass and enjoy!

AIMEE FORTNEY'S BREAKFAST BURRITOS (TO GO!)

No more feeling like you need to go through a drive-thru for a breakfast burrito! These are easy, inexpensive and healthy to make. You can use leftover steamed vegetables; rice, spinach ... truly anything you want inside of these burritos! I like to add a "dollop" of sour cream as my eggs are just to the point of being scrambled, to make them extra rich and creamy.

*The amount of eggs you use will depend on how many people you are making these burritos for, so plan on about 2 eggs per person.

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • Splash of milk/heavy cream/water
  • Pinch of salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Sliced mushrooms
  • Sauteed spinach
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red or white onion, chopped
  • 10 flour tortillas
  • Aimee's Blender Salsa (recipe below)
  • Avocado for topping
  • Sour cream for topping
  • Plastic wrap or aluminum foil
  • Freezer bags

Saute vegetables or use leftovers. In a small bowl, beat eggs and milk (or cream/water mixture that you use). Add eggs to the pan, along with half of the cheese, a pinch of salt and pepper. Just as the eggs begin to scramble, add the sour cream and stir to scramble.

Lay out tortillas, then add egg mixture down the center, sprinkle with cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole or whatever else you would like. Fold sides and then bottom and roll into burrito, place on aluminum foil and seal. Place in freezer bags and freeze. When time to reheat your burrito, make sure you remove it from the aluminum foil before placing in microwave. Heat for 30 seconds, then another 30 seconds. Check to see if heated!

AIMEE FORTNEY'S EASY BLENDER SALSA

  • 2 cans tomatoes with chilies
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 handful of cilantro
  • Salt and pepper (to taste; just a pinch)
  • Juice from 1 lime

Place all ingredients in a blender and mix well. Store any leftover salsa in an airtight container or Mason jar in the refrigerator. This is extra spicy, so if you want to tone down the heat, use 1 can of tomatoes with chilies and one can of plain, diced tomatoes.
