I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Healthy Breakfast Wrap

This is a very filling breakfast.  Easy to make and tastes wonderful.  Can make several up and freeze for those busy mornings.

(makes 4)

*4 whole wheat, low carb tortillas
*4 eggs or 8 egg whites
*2 teaspoons skim milk
*2 slices of Canadian bacon, chopped small
*1/2 red pepper, chopped small
*1/2 green bell pepper, chopped small
*1/2 small yellow onion, chopped small
*1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
*1/4 cup spinach, chopped
*1/8 teaspoon black pepper
*1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
*1/2 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese, chopped

~In a small bowl, scramble eggs & milk together, set aside.
~Spray a large skillet with a cooking spray.
~Add red & green peppers, cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring often.
~Add onions & garlic and cook another 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
~Add egg mixture & spinach, cook until eggs are set, stirring continuously.
~Remove from heat and add salt & pepper.
~Spoon egg mixture down the center of each tortilla.
~Sprinkle cheese over eggs.
~Roll tortilla up and serve immediately.

-Add cooked, crumbled bacon to eggs (about 1/4 pound)
-Add a dash or two of hot sauce to eggs.

Helpful Hint:
`wrap breakfast wrap in saran wrap and then put into a resealable plastic bag.  Freeze for future use.
To use frozen wraps: thaw in the refrigerator overnight.  Remove saran wrap.  Put tortilla in a moist paper towel.  Microwave on high for 25-40 seconds or until heated through.
