As the definition of breakfast food wanders outside the boundaries of pancakes, oatmeal, eggs, and yogurt, it only makes sense that tacos are becoming a popular brunch order. Scrambled eggs, avocado, and black beans wrapped up in a corn tortilla? Um, yes, please.

Whatever diet you follow, there's no shortage of healthy breakfast taco recipes for you to choose from. What are you waiting for? Let's make some tacos for breakfast (but maybe save the margaritas for lunch).

Breakfast taco recipes for every eating plan

Mediterranean diet: MEDITERRANEAN TACOS

This recipe is everything you love about a gyro. With chicken, hummus, feta cheese, and artichokes, the recipe is hearty and tasty so you'll stay full until lunch.

Here's what a nutritionist thinks of the Mediterranean diet. 

Ketogenic Diet: BACON TACOS

This recipe uses mozzarella cheese to make that outer shell so you can wrap up the fillings just like your carb-eating counterparts.

Vegetarian: Shiitake "bacon" and eggs breakfast tacos

This plant-friendly recipe replaces bacon with mushrooms seasoned by tamari.


You get to enjoy your taco in a bowl. This recipe contains ground beef, which you could cook over an open fire, but, you do you.

Here's the deal with paleo:


No animal products, no problem. With this recipe, tempeh stands in for sausage and vegan sour cream makes every bite creamy.


If you're following a month of Whole 30, grains are a no-go—but you can still wrap up your breakfast with a collard green wrap. Turkey sausage, avocado, and tomato make for a rich filling that will help you (almost) forget the shell is missing.

Mexican food is returning to its vegan roots. And whether you're vegan, Paleo, or Whole 30, here's how to master healthy eating at fast food restaurants
