Are Keto Breakfast Burritos Good for Meal Prep?

These low carb breakfast burritos have just 6 net carbs per serving so you can easily fit them into your macros.

Tortillas are not typically keto friendly. With typical store bought tortillas, you can expect the carb counts to look like this:

If you choose to go with a corn tortillas, they are roughly 17 grams of net carbs per serving, so still above what you can eat on a keto diet. That is significantly better than flour tortillas, but still not keto friendly.

Or, you can make your own keto tortillas. These homemade tortillas have just 2 net carbs per serving, making them perfectly acceptable to eat on a keto diet.

There are also some keto friendly tortillas on the market. If you buy store bought, be sure to check the nutrition information and ingredient list.
