Breakfast Burrito

Give your morning a punch of protein by adding beans. Fill a tortilla with scrambled eggs, onions, tomatoes, and black beans for 25 grams of protein! Add pico de gallo or a sprinkle of cheese if you want more flavor. You could also eat this over greens. I like to add in avocado.

**Make a batch of these and freeze them. Heat them up in your toaster oven or microwave in the am for a quick breakfast.

*You can sub an English muffin or whatever just please look at the ingredients! Keep your bread clean if you are going to eat it.


Avocado and Hard-Boiled Eggs

2 hard-boiled eggs (how to hard boil eggs)
1/2 avocado, diced
1 teaspoon fresh herbs, optional
Dash of hot sauce, optional

DIRECTIONSPeel your hard-boiled eggs and run under cold water. Transfer to a cutting board, and slice into quarters

Combine your chopped eggs with the diced avocado in a small bowl or mug. Top off with garnishes of your choice, and enjoy.


A quick snack idea:

Cottage Cheese and Fruit

 Cottage cheese is packed with protein, just 4 ounces yields 14 grams! This also makes a great mid-day snack when you need an energy boost or have a sweet craving. Mix in your favorite berries or melon.

Live well!
