Slept past your alarm again? Rocking that dad hat for the 4th day in a row?

Does it feel like no matter what you seem to do or even try, you just can’t get out of bed? Call me your genie, because I am about to grant your wish and save your whole week. Set that alarm 15 minutes later and snuggle back into the sheets while I tell you how a burrito is going to make a difference in your life.

Now you may be thinking to yourself, how is a burrito going to get me more sleep? Which is a viable question! But we aren’t talking about just any burrito here — we are talking about the mouth-watering, stomach filling, hot-and-ready breakfast burrito.
