Founded by Peter "PJ" Sartorio in 2007, PJ's Organics rose to fame as the only organic meat burrito on the market. However, the company has since crossed into vegetarian territory with its new meatless Skinny Breakfast Burritos. At just 300 calories, the egg white, feta cheese, spinach & sun-dried tomato burrito is packed with a whopping 15 grams of protein, making it a fantastic "bang for the buck."
PJ's makes a proud point of its homemade, hand-rolled tortillas - and the extra effort pays off. Unlike many other thin, microwavable burritos, the Skinny Breakfast Burritos are crafted with soft, thick, fresh tasting tortillas, giving them a more substantial mouth-feel. There's no skimping on the filling either!
It's a toss-up between the two vegetarian options of PJ's Skinny Breakfast Burritos - the egg white, feta cheese, spinach & sun-dried tomato burrito bursts with big spinach flavor, although the egg whites tend to feel a little grainy and dry. While very tasty, the filling does seem rather salty. Try topping with salsa or hot sauce!
The "Denver" Breakfast Burrito contains eggs, cheddar cheese, and red & green bell peppers. Although it isn't as "skinny," at 340 calories, the Denver is delicious. The cheddar cheese flavor is great and the peppers add quite a bit more spice than anticipated, so non-spicy food eaters beware!
