Let’s be honest. Having a healthy breakfast can be tough. For most people the morning is the busiest time of the day – whether your trying to get your kids off to school or hitting the snooze one to many times, there never seems to be enough time.
In less than an hour, you can quickly make a batch (or 2) of my Paleo Freezer Breakfast Burritos to reheat for quick and healthy meal. A grain free tortilla packed full of healthy protein, fats and veggies is the ideal way to start your Paleo Day.
To get started you’ll need to make a batch of my Perfect Paleo Tortillas, then fill them with delicious and nutritious egg, sausage, veggies and cheese if you tolerate dairy.
Give them a quick roll in foil or waxed paper. They’ll keep in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for months. (Since the filling for these are technically a “western” omelet that’s what I call them in our freezer bag)
The Best Way to Reheat Frozen Breakfast Burritos
Now that you have a plethora of Paleo Freezer Breakfast Burritos (this recipe yields 18 servings) you need to get them hot. By default when most people think of reheating foods, the first option that comes to mind is the microwave.
There’s much controversy as to the safety of microwaving food. And for us, the last thing we’d ever want to do it potentially ruin our healthy food by cooking/heating it in the microwave.
It’s not a risk worth taking.
We don’t put filtered/purified water into toxic plastic bottles to drink from. And we don’t use a microwave.
We’ve been a microwave-free home for over 10 years. It was the first BIG step that we took toward a longterm comitment to a healthy, real-food lifestyle.
When you talk your husband into removing your built-in over the range microwave, things just got real. Perhaps we’re both equally crazy, I’m just leading the parade.
Looking back, I can’t remember one single time we had to ‘do without’ because we didn’t have a microwave. Zero Regrets.
I know for many people it’s hard to image a life without the instant heating capabilities of a microwave and while I mention the possibility of destroying healthy foods – the truth is that we feel that our food deserves more respect than a microwave.
Here’s my rant. Famers pour their blood, sweat and tears into growing the most amazing foods that nourish our bodies, these foods deserve to be cooked with love. Not nuked for 30 seconds.
When I mention life sans-microwave, the biggest push back I hear is … ‘but I reheat lunch at work in the microwave every day, it’s my only option’ BUT there is another option for heating food away from home – and it’s even more convenient than a microwave!
Better than a Microwave; the HotLogic Portable Oven
The HotLogic Portable Mini Oven is simply amazing. We’ve been using them for YEARS and there is absolutely no downside.
It looks like a little soft side cooler but it’s so much more….
Plug it in at your desk, in the office kitchen or using an inexpensive power inverter-plug it in your car. Ray uses his HotLogic Portable Oven often while he’s out on the road. He always has a hot meal, no matter how far away from a kitchen he is.
And I use it often at home, just as I would a slow cooker. It works perfectly to reheat FROZEN foods – like leftovers or these Paleo Freezer Breakfast Burritos. Simply grab them out of the freezer, place in your HotLogic Portable Oven and Plug in… 2-3 hours later they are piping hot.
When your HotLogic Portable Oven isn’t plugged in or hot, it’s a insulated cooler, keeping your frozen or cold food chilled until you are ready to cook on the go.
Trust me when I promise that you NEED a HotLogic Portable Oven and if you’ll be on the road, THIS power inverter, too. (This is not a sponsored post or advertisement, I am not affiliated with HotLogic in any way – this is just a product we sincerely love)
So, now that you’ve ordered a HotLogic Portable Oven it’s time to start filling your freezer with Paleo Freezer Breakfast Burritos for quick meals on the go!
Oh, one last thing – a little bit of a confession – when I was making these I ate a couple.
Ok I ate more than a couple – I ate 6 of them in 24 hours.
In fact it’s all I’ve eaten in the past 24 hours. I had 2 for brunch made fresh, then 2 reheated in the toaster oven for dinner and this morning, 2 more frozen Paleo Freezer Breakfast Burritos reheated in my HotLogic Portable Oven for breakfast….
Yes, they are that good… Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner you can’t go wrong with my Paleo Freezer Breakfast Burritos!
