Five Quick, Healthy And Delicious Breakfast Wraps

Posted by Nick Harris-Fry on

Start your morning with nutritious wraps that caught our eye on Instagram.

You’ve always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You know it’s unskippable if you want to be productive at any point before lunch. However, you’re a busy guy, you need to get to the office, get things done: merge, acquire, share stocks and stock shares.

Enter the breakfast wrap. A superb foodstuff not only because of the tasty and healthy things you can cram inside it, but also because it is eminently portable. Nothing says city slicker like holding a breakfast wrap in one hand while making high-powered deals on a cellular telephone with the other.

A varied wrapatoire is, therefore, a must – and what better place to seek inspiration for your wrap du jour than Instagram? The #breakfastwrap hashtag might be polluted with people inexplicably keen to show off their McDonald’s breakfast wrap, but in between those pics are some nuggets of healthy brekkie gold. Here are five that caught our eye and will be sure to inspire you.

1. Eggs, Black Beans, Chorizo, Cheese And Avocado Burrito

This breakfast burrito from everyone’s favourite quickfire chef Joe Wicks is a winner on all fronts. It has chorizo in it, so will automatically taste good, and the hit of protein and fibre from the beans, eggs and avocado definitely means you’ll keep hunger locked up till lunch.

2. Mixed Greens, Eggs, Sun-Dried Tomatoes And Spicy Aioli Wrap

Spicy aioli is an ingredient everyone deserves to have a little more of in their life. Slather your wrap in the stuff before adding any other ingredients and it’s sure to be a tasty treat.

3. Eggs, Peppers And Spinach Wrap

An easy way to ensure your wrap is colourful enough for Instagram is to use every colour of pepper. That’s Instagram 101. Then add eggs and spinach for a healthy, and very simple, breakfast.

4. Avocado, Bacon, Lettuce And Tomato Crepes

A twist on the classic BLT here, with some avocado chucked in and the whole caboodle wrapped up in a couple of crepes.

5. Eggs, Pepper, Onion And Guacamole Wrap

Guac is good for any time of the day, so even just filling a wrap with the stuff is an option worth considering. However, for a more rounded breakfast, combining it with peppers, onions and eggs makes for a top-notch morning meal.

Breakfast Burrito


Why should you start your day with this nutrient-packed breakfast burrito? Let’s take it ingredient by ingredient.


Eggs are one of nature’s best sources of protein, and one of the very few food sources of vitamin D, which your body needs to manufacture hormones including testosterone.


Avocados are a top source of heart-helping monounsaturated fats and contain decent doses of vitamins C, E and K, as well as some B vitamins.

Black beans

Black beans are high in phosphorus, which plays an essential role in transporting energy into every cell in your body. They are also high in vitamin B9, which is needed to metabolise amino acids.

Red pepper

A pepper has three times more vitamin C than an orange, and you need this antioxidant to combat the cell-damaging free radicals created through exercise.


They’re high in the antioxidant lycopene, which research suggests can lower the risk of prostate cancer. Cooking them makes it easier for your gut to absorb.
