Healthy choices in eating doesn’t need to be difficult if you can cook basic recipes that cut out the least healthy parts. A low fat breakfast burrito can have low fat and lots of nutrients while still tasting better than the burritos offered at many of your local restaurants. In my experience, this recipe offers all of the taste without all of the unhealthy fat. It takes around 10-15 minutes to make.
-Dice mushrooms, onions, peppers, and olives (may include anything else you want). Saute until tender. Approximately a ½ cup for each burrito is needed. (100 calories)
-Mix in 1 tablespoon spaghetti sauce or salsa depending on taste. (10 calories)
-Add eggs to pan while removing the yokes. (2 eggs per burrito). Cook until egg whites are finished. Ensure you add the spices you want (garlic and pepper work well). (38 calories)
-Spread out whole wheat tortilla and place mixture in center (approximately a cup). Fold tortilla to make a burrito. (92 calories)
-Use Pam or low fat oil to griddle burrito to make crispy. If you use olive oil it will be an extra 100 calories but contain healthy fats).
