Low-Carb Breakfast Burrito

The winter months always do it to me…

  • Comfort foods entice me
  • A few extra pounds hang on me
  • Tight jeans strangle me
  • Physical Discomfort discourages me

When you’re only 4’9″, every couple of pounds really shows! But now that spring is here and vacation is in my horizon, I’m trying to kick those few extra pounds!  I’m not on any specific diet, I’m just trying to reduce carbohydrates.  That means no bread, no sugar, no potatoes, no pasta.  But you know what?  That doesn’t mean I’m not eating good food!!  The Lord made such a variety of great, healthy food for us to enjoy, didn’t He? You can eat healthy food that is delicious and filling!

  No fooling!

This past weekend Whitney was talking about Breakfast Burritos; oh man!  I used to make those when the girls were home.  But tortillas are off my list of low-carb foods.  What to do?  Make the outside of the burrito with an egg!  The result was delicious and I truly didn’t miss the tortilla!

It’s simple to do: Scramble 2 eggs with a couple tablespoons of milk and pour half of the mixture into a non-stick pan sprayed with cooking spray.  Coat the bottom of the pan with the egg mixture.  Add salt and pepper. Swirl the pan so it covers the bottom.  Cook until lightly browned on the bottom.

Loosen the edges of the egg and then flip it over, using a large spatula.

Cook for about 1 minute or until underside is cooked.

Remove from pan and add toppings.  I added bacon, tomatoes, and avocado.

Roll it up like a burrito and enjoy!Yum!!

Repeat the process with the other half of your egg mixture!  I made the second one and then wrapped it in waxed paper to warm up for the next day’s breakfast.  I heated it in the microwave on 70% power for 30 seconds.  Quick, easy, delicious, and LOW-CARB!
