LOW CARB BREAKFAST BURRITO


This Mexican inspired breakfast dish is packed with both protein and nutrients yet super flavourful to get you through a busy day. It's gluten free, grain free and high in protein and good fats but low in carbohydrates. Make the salsa in advance ready for a quick healthy breakfast. I sometimes swap the fresh chilli for chipotle paste - try from Cool Chile Co or Gran Luchito.
