Low Fat Breakfast Burrito Recipe

Image
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.  Direction: -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 calo

Chip dip is something we need from time to time for events, parties, or personal use. It isn’t generally healthy unless the right ingredients are used. Time and taste are often weighed before making a decision to make a particular type of dip. When you are on the go and don’t have much time try this simple sour cream based dip.  It works with chips or vegetables. It is a touch sweet but it will appeal to most pallets. There is no need to be a chef when you can make this option quickly. If you are making it for personal use you will have plenty left over.  Directions: Step1 : Place all ingredients in bowl or blender. Step 2: Mix until smooth. Ingredients: 16 oz sour cream 16 oz mayonnaise (use light or alternative Vegenaise if you want a healthier option) 1 oz ranch dressing mix Finely chopped onion and/or garlic (optional) 2 Tbsp 60 calories 5 g fat
