Healthy Breakfast Burritos

As a registered dietitian, I am always trying to get as many servings of vegetables into my family as possible. One easy way to sneak in an extra serving of veggies is with these vegetable filled breakfast burritos. These burritos are freezer friendly and make for a quick breakfast on the go.
