Veggie Breakfast Tacos For One come together super quickly for a satisfying breakfast that is good for you and tastes great! Plus, they are clean, gluten-free, and 21 Day Fix approved.
I’m a stay at home mom and even though I love to cook and have a recipe blog, I’m not the kind of mom who has the house smelling like freshly cooked something or other when the kids wake up. In reality, I wake up early to work before they get up and then they request frozen waffles or granola with almond milk. This is our morning routine, and it works for me. Occasionally, if I’m working on a recipe especially, I’ll make pancakes or something for breakfast, but that is rare. While they are eating I’ll down another cup of coffee and do some light chores. I normally don’t eat until after they are done with their breakfast, and by then I’ve been up for 2 or 3 hours and I’m starving.
But just because I’m starving doesn’t mean I want to eat something full of sugar or heavy in carbs and, let’s face it, MOST breakfast items are full of sugar and heavy in carbs.
One of my favorite things to whip up for myself is breakfast tacos. You can be as fancy or as simple as you like, and they are full of flavor without all the sugar and fat, so you can feel good about yourself when you are done eating.
It’s so easy to make breakfast tacos for one that I do it multiple times a week. Who doesn’t want tacos all the time?! And I like to eat my carbs early on in the day so that I have plenty of time to burn them off before going to sleep. No regrets about those two measly corn tortillas here! You can even eat these on a Clean diet, Gluten-Free diet or 21 Day Fix diet. Corn tortillas are totally 21 Day Fix approved, and the corn tortillas I buy from Trader Joe’s are Clean.
Another great thing about these Veggie Breakfast Tacos are that I just use whatever chopped up veggies I have left over from dinners that week (I usually chop up the extra I’m not going to use for dinner for this breakfast taco purpose), and I cook the veggies and eggs together in the same pan. It seriously does not get easier for a breakfast that you could be served at any restaurant.
The veggies only take about 4 minutes to cook because I just want them seared, not cooked to a mush, and scrambled eggs take about a minute and a half. So you’ve got breakfast in, what, six ish minutes?? Heck yeah.
I love to put avocado on my breakfast tacos and then top it all with a spoonful of my favorite salsa. You could definitely sprinkle it with cheese and put a dollop of sour cream on top if you are feeling a little indulgent. I very often include black beans in my veggie mix for an extra protein boost. There are no rules here!
